Weekly Wrap Up: 6th September 2019


This week we are celebrating members who have been courageous in sharing their experiences! Here are 3 highlights from this week:


1. This week we saw @InayaCare start a fantastic discussion about the importance of Self Advocacy skills for young people, particularly those with special needs or diverse experiences. With input from @Bre-RO and @JAKGR8, we are seeing the role parents have in supporting teens to advocate for themselves and their needs- such a crucial skill! You can contribute to this conversation here to share your thoughts and experiencesThank you @InayaCare for a fantastic discussion!

3. @Newtothis2019 made a new discussion about interactions with her boyfriend's teen living in the home full time. We often hear from parents who are living with their partner's teens, or who are new to step parenting, and navigating the boundaries of that relationship. Check out this thread to share your thoughts, experiences and insights
