Why 21st Century Kids Need 21st Century Support Part 3
Part 3: Guiding Your Child Toward Independence presented by Annie Fox, M.Ed.
The job description at the bottom of your child’s birth certificate states that you’re responsible for raising a fully functioning young adult. Each year you ought to step back a little further and allow the child to do more and more for himself or herself. Knowing when to step back and when to step up is key to mastering the art of parenting. This webinar will help you take the long view of your parenting role so your children can become independent thinkers and doers. Participants will:
• Deconstruct some assumptions about your “job” as a parent
• Identify your long-term parenting objectives
• Recognize that not everything you do to “help” is all that helpful
• Learn how to deal with recurring parent/child conflicts (aka “Boomerang” issues)
