We are quite certain there are moments you truly can’t believe that your little baby is now in elementary school or maybe even out and about as an independent tween or teenager! As our children reach these formative ages, it’s important to communicate with them openly and take part in important conversations about navigating their world, bodies, and social relationships.
The Loved Child offers a variety of helpful online parenting workshops for teens’ & tweens’ parents and caregivers. These expert-facilitated workshops bring parents together from the community so that we can feel empowered by evidence-based information and support one another around challenging topics such as screen-time use, social media, sexuality, and mental health.
