Parent Workshop: Aliens from Planet Teen, Oct. 17

The Newton Partnership will sponsor a parent workshop, Aliens from Planet Teen, on Wednesday, October 17, 7-9PM at Bigelow Middle School, 42 Vernon Street, Newton Corner.  Author and psychologist Anthony Wolf will act as a “translator” for parents and teenagers who at times seem to be speaking completely different languages. Dr. Wolf, who is the author of the popular parenting book, Get Out of My Life! But first will you drive me and Cheryl to the Mall?, will help us consider how to most harmoniously work with typical teen behaviors in ways that strengthen relationships. Learn how to decipher and respond to temperamental teens and tweens and why they behave as they do. This insightful lecture will leave parents with a better understanding of their children and will benefit the whole family.  Suggested donation $5 per person.
