We don’t often think about our kids being in relationships until they get into their teen years and begin to date. Given the dangers that teens and young adults can experience in dating relationships, it’s important to recognize the positive impact parents can have on their kids as they form relationships with themselves, peers, partners, teachers, coaches, etc. Join Crisis Center North in a discussion of how to parent for healthy relationships. We will explore foundations for healthy relationships, how to model positive attitudes and actions, discuss developmental tips for talking to kids about tough topics, and finally how to recognize warning signs that your child may be in an unhealthy peer or dating relationship.
