Tuning in to Teens™is a parenting program that guides parents in ways to help teens learn to understand and regulate their emotions.
The program teaches parents how to help their teens develop emotional intelligence. Studies suggest Emotional Intelligence may be a better predictor of academic & career success than IQ.
We know adolescents with higher emotional intelligence:
Are more aware, assertive, and strong in situations of peer pressure
Have greater success making friends and are more able to manage conflict
Are more able to cope when upset or angry
Have fewer mental health and substance abuse difficulties
Tuning in to Teens™ involves watching video material, group discussions and exercises, role plays, reading the information, and home activities where you try out different ways of responding to your child’s emotions.
Participating parents are encouraged to share experiences and ideas within the group and group leaders may use these as examples to explain and teach the skills of emotion coaching.
