EMPOWERING PARENTS TO BUILD STRONG FAMILIES
E3 Family Solutions has developed a powerful program to educate parents about how their teen’s brain works, explaining their unpredictable and sometimes risky behaviors as well as effective strategies to help teens develop self-regulation and choose healthy rather than risky activities. These presentations are highly interactive and parents walk away with a new understanding of their teen, and more importantly, a new bag of tools to effectively guide their teen into making healthy choices.

UNDERSTANDING THE TEENAGE BRAIN PROGRAM
UNDERSTANDING THE TEENAGE BRAIN
At Parent Night, moms and dads participate in an interactive program along with a packet of information and visuals that explain how teens think and how parents can guide their teens into making good decisions while reducing the drama and conflict that often accompanies the teen years.
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING??
Often, it is a mystery to good parents why their teen may be making poor choices. Understanding and insight are step one in more effective parenting.
Research shows that an immature teenage brain responds differently to stimuli than a fully developed adult brain. This distorted thinking can lead to risky behaviors without considering consequences.
Parents will be given tips and tools to hlep guide their teen into more rational and responsible thinking and behoviors.
Risky behavior in teens often includes experimenting with drugs for alcohol. For some, there will be no long-term results; but for others, it is the start of a lifetime addiction.
This parent program offers guidance in how to begin a healthy conversation, building a groundwork of trust and open dialogue between parent and teen. A once disfunctional relationship can grow into a strong healthy one.
