Are you frustrated because your parents
aren’t fully on board with your transition?

Do you worry that their lack of understanding or support could get in the way of you showing up as who you really are?

There is a way to communicate with your parent(s)
so you feel more seen, heard, and understood.

This is why we created “How to Reconnect with your Teenager,”
a workshop with your overall well-being in mind.

 

In this One hour workshop, you’ll discover:

  • -The Secret to Eliminating Your Biggest Fears around Your Transition
  • -How to Get Your Parent(s) to Listen
  • -The Three Most Common Mistakes Parents make with their transgender teen
  • -Why Having More Fun Together is the key to reconnection
  • -The Most Important Thing Your Facilitators did to Feel More Understood

Through exercises, conversation, useful tools, and heartfelt instruction from each facilitator, How to Reconnect with your Teenager teaches you how to go from feeling like your parents will never get it, to a better and deeper connection with your true self than you’ve ever had.

 

Stop thinking change is impossible, and instead
come spend one hour with us and see what can happen.
