Talking to Teens

A Parenting Discussion on Tuesday, Nov. 28, 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
  • Are you facing life with teenagers or pre-teens and need help talking to them about the challenges and temptations that come with growing up?
  • Do you need help getting past the eye rolling and awkwardness of starting the conversation?  

Then come to St. Mary’s Episcopal Church on Tuesday, November 28, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

Our speaker will be Dr. Heather Tedesco, a McLean-based applied psychologist who works directly with parents in her practice to improve family life and to support the long-term development of happy, authentically successful children, teens, and adults.

Dr. Tedesco will share some local statistics on teen drug and alcohol use as well as teen sexual activity. She will help parents examine what gets in the way when it comes to having these important conversations and will offer practical, concrete strategies for how to facilitate talks with your teens about the “tough” stuff in their lives.

St. Mary’s Senior Associate Priest, Mother Amy Slater, will offer guidance on how to lean on your faith in times of family stress.  Friends, neighbors and family are welcome! Light snacks and beverages will be offered.
