This post is made possible with support from the Center for Parent and Teen Communication, part of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. All opinions are my own.
Last year I was introduced to the Center for Parent and Teen Communication, an organization that provides parents with strategies to support healthy family relationships. Their website is filled with snackable teen parenting tips. The website has been an invaluable resource for me, especially during the last year when we’ve had to navigate so many difficult situations and changes as a family.
The CPTC’s 100-word newsletter is filled with golden nuggets of teen parenting advice. Their articles have really helped me better understand and communicate with my teens, and I love that I get all that valuable information right in my inbox. If you have teens at home, I have no doubt you will find this newsletter helpful. You can sign up HERE.
My new favorite parenting resources are the CPTC’s 1-Minute Parenting Tip animations. These 1-minute videos are so easy to watch and understand! My daughter has been struggling with school, and my first instinct was to swoop in and help her. After watching the “Inquire and Listen” video, I changed my approach and let her know that I was there to help whenever SHE needed it. Later that day, she came to me and shared what happened. It felt so good to see her reach out. The video helped me realize I need to give her time and space to process.
Filled with easy-to-implement advice, you can check out the 1-Minute Parenting Tip animations HERE! You’re sure to find some valuable tips that could make a huge, positive difference in how you connect and communicate with your teens!
