Full Text

Are you a parent struggling to communicate with your pre-teen or teen? You're not alone! One of the great myths about raising teenagers is that they don't want to talk to their parents. The one-word answers, long sentences and frequent rudeness are baffling to adults, leaving them with the impression that teens only want to talk to their friends. Nothing could be further from the truth. Teens really do want to communicate with their parents, but they just aren't very good at it. Parents can learn how to develop a foolproof communication system that will result in a closer relationship between teenagers and adults. The Enhancing Parenting Capacity Committee presents Dr. Scott Wooding on Did That Grunt Mean `Yes or No'?-- Communicating with Teenagers. The Enhancing Parenting Capacity Committee includes members of the Georgetown Parent Education Network, the Milton Parent Education Network, ACT for Kids-Acton Parent Education Network, Halton Regional Health and Social and Community Services and Links2Care. Dr. Wooding is Canada's leading authority on parenting today's teenagers, best selling author and well sought out speaker. His books include: Rage, Rebellion and Rudeness; Hear Me, Hug Me, Trust Me and The Parenting Crisis.
