Parenting Tweens

A Practical Approach to This Generation

Our children have been born in a unique time in history. They have been given experiences and opportunities which former generations could have only dreamt about, but they are also facing challenges which have not confronted any other generation in the same way.
In this presentation, Michelle reveals her top 10 parenting strategies in response to the biggest issues impacting today’s families face including disrespect, social media and anxiety. She also discusses why parenting in the age of a new normal demands an entire new set of parenting strategies.

This presentation includes:
•  The stages of development and how they impact our homes
•  National statistics revealing the new culture  our tweens are living in
•  The “they should” conversations we all have
•  Why connection is your greatest weapon
•  A range of practical strategies to teach respect, setting up social media well and manage grumpy days

Duration: 50-minute session plus Q and A time

Recommended audience: Parents of tweens

Presentation Feedback

We were lucky enough to have Michelle speak to our parent community and it was such a positive and uplifting event. People walked away feeling good about what they were already doing but also armed with really practical ways to address issues that they weren’t sure how to handle. I would thoroughly recommend Michelle for speaking, not only to parents, but also to students. Thanks Michelle!

About the Book

I wanted to write a book that made parents feel like they were literally siting in my office, talking to me about their young person and (most importantly) walking away with the help they needed. This book talks about the topics I find parents are most concerned about – disrespect, social media, moods, sexuality, drugs, alcohol and partying responsibly.
