Children usually communicate the most with parents during pre-adolescence. However, the same children become reluctant to communicate with their parents when they grow into teenagers. This breakdown in communication usually leads to conflict and frustration, and may even deprive the teenager of crucial and necessary engagement with parents.
This workshop engages both parents and teenagers over differences in perception. Through a mix of teaching, profiling, discussion and innovative games, participants will be led through a process to communicate their own perspective, and learn to appreciate the other party’s viewpoint. Participants will experience reconciliation and understanding and set the stage for better relationships.
