ReGen Next - Making healthy relationships the priority.
Workshops for Parents
Everyone needs help to navigate through the noise of a world that offers many confusing and, at times, conflicting messages. Our presenters are experienced educators who know that children need parents who are dedicated to their well-being and armed with the knowledge and the fortitude that it takes to recognize and to break unhealthy cycles. Turn Down the Volume (TDTV) workshops equip parents and caregivers to make the healthiest life decisions for themselves and for their families.
In-person and virtual presentations are available. Contact Us today...because a parent is a child's first teacher and a teen's primary influence.
A mutual, positive, long-lasting, emotional bond between parent and child through each stage of development is a protective factor throughout a child’s lifetime. High levels of parent-child connectedness produce security, hope and resiliency in children, from infancy through adolescence. In Great Parenting (Parts I/II), participants will explore various parenting styles and their consequences, the effects of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), ways to show love, and the three components of effective parenting.
