Connect Parent Group

Connect Parent Group' s an attachment based program to support parents and caregivers of pre-teens and teens. Each session provides parents with a new perspective on parent-teen relationships and adolescent development. Parents watch role-plays, do exercises and discuss new ways of responding to challenging behavior and problems. Rather than teach only one way of parenting, we help parents see choices that support healthy relationships, while setting limits and helping their teen to move forward.’

Parents can register at Shuswap Family Resource Centre reception, in person or by calling 250-832-2170. They can also call Susie Steves directly on her cell for any further information, 250-833-6406 (Susie).
