Attention Parents and Caregivers of Teens
Are you or do you
know a parent or caregiver of teens who may be struggling to understand and
respond to difficult behavior? If so, a
program called CONNECT may be suitable.
CONNECT is a 10 week program to help parents and caregivers of
teens who are struggling to understand and respond to difficult behavior. Parents meet in small groups with two trained
group leaders for one and a half hours each week.
Each session provides parents with new information about
parent-teen relationship and adolescent development. Parents are helped to see choices that
support healthy relationships while setting limits and helping their teen to
move forward. For more information, click
here for the brochure. see http://www.mcf.gov.bc.ca/maples/connect.htm
