Being Adept

Topics for Parents

Specifically Designed Parent Evenings

Being Adept professionals ensure that parents receive the training they need to engage in an ongoing, vital dialog with their children. Research on emotionally healthy teens point to the need for specific parenting practices. Building the kind of connection that keeps kids close while at the same time, honoring the individuation and separation process is a challenging yet critical element of effective parenting.
