How to thrive and survive with your high-tech teen April 19 and 26

Parents of pre-teens or teens will learn and discuss technology and

its affect on our young people at parent workshops offered by the Pierce County Community Response Program.

It is during this developmental time when youth begin to test their independence, examine their values, challenge their parents, and explore their identity and sexuality.

During this workshop, we will look closer at these developmental tasks and help you see why they are so important to our young people's healthy growth. Doing so will also help us understand why digital media like social networking, texting, and gaming is so important to them and how to guide them in a positive directions.

Free child care and transportation available.

Please call Cindy at 273-6766 to make arrangements.
