If you are a DC area parent of teens, Devra Renner will be speaking at The Women’s Center on Thursday, October 22 at 7 pm about effectively communicating with your teen. Devra blogs at her Parentopia site and a fellow DC Metro Mom, is the author the popular book, Mommy Guilt, and is a friend. Yes, that’s a picture of her with our turnip at Eno.
I can always count on Devra to have great advice not only because her expertise is highly regarded and often appears in print publications but because she has first hand knowledge of dealing with teens and tweens as the mom of 2 sons.
Here’s information that Devra passed on to me to share:
Every generation of parents stakes the claim, “Teens today are different than we were.” With all of the technology available at teens’ fingertips today, that statement may be truer than ever. To understand how today’s teens communicate and what you can do to communicate effectively with them, join noted parenting expert, author and blogger, Devra Reener, for a crash course covering the ins and outs of communicating with teens the old fashioned way — by engaging them in conversation. She’ll also show you how they use the latest technology from Facebook, Twitter and texting to connect with the rest of the world, including their savvy parents.
