If you have ever felt nervous for your child’s transition into middle and high school, you are not alone. Our upcoming parenting program will address this topic in a workshop entitled The Power of Positive Parenting, taking place February 4 at 7 pm. Dr Alissa Sklar has tailored her program to parents of elementary-age children; her focus will be on ways to build a strong foundation in your young ones so that when they become teenagers, they are better prepared to handle some of the challenges that they may face in high school.
Dr. Alissa Sklar runs the Montreal consultancy project risk(within)reason, and is a researcher who has taught at Concordia. She has experience with adolescent high risk issues, and created this program so parents could learn practical strategies for teaching impulse control, decision-making and problem-solving, as well as building resilience from a young age. The Power of Positive Parenting teaches that preventing high-risk activities in teens means starting to talk to your kids when they are much younger.
