Navigating Life with Adolescents
Sunday, January 29 at 3 p.m.
Charis Denison, M.A.
The arrival of the adolescent and teenage years often seems to come suddenly, almost without warning. For parents, grandparents, and teachers of these 11 to 16 year olds, this sudden shift is not fluid. Often it is a whirlwind of steps forward and back with regards to developmental shifts, emotional and intellectual changes, and the broadening of possibility and potential. additional information
