Upcoming Workshops + Events
If you are the mom of an adolescent girl you already know how wonderful, frustrating and complex your relationship with your daughter can be.  In this 2 session class we will explore the “why’s” of this complexity , discuss parenting techniques that are more successful with teenage girls, and develop a new understanding of the mother/daughter bond.   As Dr. Evelyn Bassoff writes "Although most love relationships are a coming together, the love relationship between a mother and her adolescent daughter requires that each take leave of each other". With Sheila Dubin, MS. Fee: $90[For Parents of Pre-Teens & Teenagers]
