It’s coming, the time you have wondered about since your sweet baby girl was in diapers, adolescence! The time when your once even-tempered child becomes an emotional mystery, full of contradictions. Ever wondered how you were going to navigate the minefield while keeping your relationship with your child (and your sanity) intact?
Help is here in the form of Washington School’s second installment of their Parent Ed series, Raising Preadolescents: What’s Ahead and How to Talk About It.
Please be their guest next Tuesday, November 12th from 7-8:30pm in the library of Washington School as they welcome Catherine Weigel Foy, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Marriage Family Therapist of Northwestern University’s Family Institute. Ms. Foy is a clinical lecturer and therapist with more than 20 years of experience in her field, specializing in relationships between mothers and daughters. She describes adolescence as the most refreshing yet bewildering time for adults and teens alike. She will lead us in a discussion of family and peer relationship changes during preadolescence and ways we can help our girls not only survive, but thrive as they enter this time of tremendous growth and change in their lives.
Childcare will be provided.
