A free two-week series called A Parent’s Survival Guide to Living with Teens will be presented Tuesdays, Nov. 13 and 20, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. each night at the Seward Civic Center. Brenda K. Jennings, president of Motivate 2 Communicate LLC, will be the presenter.

The Search Institute has identified 40 positive supports and strengths that young people need have to become healthy, caring, and responsible. During part one, parents will learn how to identify their youth’s strengths and “40 Developmental Assets” that help prevent youth from being involved in risky behaviors. Parents will gain and develop strategies and techniques to communicating effectively with their teen.

Football practices, meeting work deadlines, scheduling dentist appointments and going on college visits! The list seems to never end! In part two, parents will learn how to best balance family and work life, manage stress and challenging teens and how to set your teen up for success. Attendance to Part 1 not required to attend Part 2.

Contact the Pretrial Diversion Office at (402) 643-3055 for more information.
