In February, I shared Southborough Youth and Family Services’ would re-run a workshop series this spring for parents of teens. The in-person workshops had to be cancelled before they began. Now, SYFS is launching the class online.

(Thank goodness. Parenting teens didn’t suddenly get easier during this stressful time!)

The six week series will be held Thursday evenings beginning this week. Act quickly to sign up. The deadline is this Wednesday and there are only a few slots left:

The SYFS Next Level Parenting workshops are led by a licensed social worker:

Next level parenting online workshopsTeen emotions are big. It makes the job of parenting even bigger. How do we support our teens? How do we know we’re saying the right thing…or that we should be saying anything at all? Join Kerrie Toole, Director of Castlebrook Counseling of Westborough, in gaining tools and getting support. This free six-week workshop will be based on DBT skills* and cover topics like youth brain development and how it affects emotions, how to use validation strategies, learning why flexibility is so important in parenting and ways to support teens through difficult times.

You can learn more about Toole’s expertise here.

The workshops are funded by a generous grant from The Southborough Community Fund. That means attendance is free – but it is limited to only 25 Southborough residents:

Register by 4/8/20 by emailing Sarah Cassell at scassell@southboroughma.com or calling 774-249-1485. Please include “Next Level Parenting” in your subject line.
