The teenage years are some of the most difficult years for BOTH parents and teens. Most of us with children 11 – 16 years old would have had the following experiences:
- our teens are turning into emotional chameleons, enigmas we cannot comprehend;
- our teens are emotional time bombs and we never know when they are going to explode at the smallest trigger;
- our teens seem like strangers to us on some days and we seem to be losing contact with them not because we do not see them but because they shut themselves off from us; and
- we are struggling to understand what is going on in our teens’ minds.

“Thank you very much for the talk today. I have benefitted tremendously. It covered some very important areas that are rarely touched on in other parenting talks. Will definitely recommend your talk to others.”

“It was enriching and a must attend seminar for parents with ‘soon to be teen’ children. I was clueless in handling the transformation of my obedient boy to a uninvited alien. Everything seemed wrong and all the values that we painstakingly modelled and taught him seems to evaporate into the air. But everything does make sense now after I attended the seminar last night. Thanks so much, Vivian, for opening my eyes to see a different person in my teen.”
