ReachOut is going live on Facebook: Rules and Boundaries for Teens
4 weeks ago - last edited 4 weeks ago
Join us tonight when ReachOut goes live on Facebook, talking about Rules and Boundaries for teens!
Boundary setting is an important part of helping your teen gain independence, remain safe and learn how to make good decisions. But setting consequences that stick, building trust and making sure you’ve covered all the bases can get pretty complicated.
Hosted by Melissa Hoyer, this series of Facebook Live videos will see us gather experts in their fields to share their perspectives on communicating with teens (and, we’ll also include some young people so you can hear directly from them, too).
In this discussion, Melissa will explore rules and boundaries with special guests dad of 5 Matt Green and psychologist Joe Tighe.
We'll be asking our experts your questions. Submit them ahead of time and join in the conversation live on the night.
