AANE Webinar: From a Parent/Child to a Parent/Adult Relationship: How to increase independence without damaging the relationship
March 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm, $5.00
Thanks to a generous grant from Belmont Bank we are pleased to announce a five-part webinar series on relationships. Webinars will be held once per month beginning in February until June and will be specially priced at $5 each.
Every parent/child relationship experiences growing pains as the child becomes a young adult. The growth in independence does not mean the parent cares less or worries less, but it does mean the parent becomes more of an advisor than a manager. This transition can be particularly difficult when children have areas of developmental delay making it even more important for them to continue to rely on their parents. This webinar offers the unique experience of hearing from both the parent and the child as they reflect on the journey to “interdependence” and a redefinition of their relationship. They will discuss graduation from high school, the college experience, first jobs and other milestones that signify the shift in relationship.
