Your Potential…the inspiration behind the workshop
Parents putting on pressure?
Are your parents are putting on the pressure?
- “What are you doing about ______ !?”
(your exams, your decisions for studies, your phone usage, your social life….your messy room)
- “When will you ________ !?”
(start working harder, be responsible, talk with respect…)
Those decisions sure don’t seem like fun so it’s easier to want to avoid them…and yet they don’t to away no matter how hard you try and ignore them.
As one teen put it, “Mom, Dad. It’s like this. Being a kid is fun. Being an adult is work. I wanna have fun.”
Does EVERY adult frown ALL THE TIME? (Probably not 🙂 )
Is that who YOU want to become?
Take charge of your future.
Yes, YOU Can Be In Charge of YOUR Future
Do you know? YOU can make YOUR life meaningful, exciting, and fun. And the best way is to start now.
In this workshop, we help you imagine the person you want to be and to launch your plan to get there.
What you get:
- Tools to get your parents off your back (to help them have confidence in you)
- Hope for the future and for YOUR future
- Steps to grow into the person you want to be
Starts with Pizza … Learning through Games
Our workshop begins with pizza and introductions.
We do some brainstorming together as we eat (with our fingers).
We’ll play poker…betting with skills. You choose one or two life skills you want to win this year.
We’ll create a Parent-Trust-Me-&-Give-Me-Space Plan.
- A Positive Vision for YOUR Future
- YOUR Plan to develop one or two key life skills of your choice
- A plan to build parents’ trust and give you space
- A way to check throughout the year that you are one target with your goal
What will you tell my parents?
Our goal is for BOTH you AND your parents to grow. YES.
Growth benefits from some key ingredients:
You can trust that what you share will be honored and respected.
Your parents can trust that their children are receiving wise and positive encouragement.
Some information does get shared with parents:
- the agenda,
- the topics of discussion
Some information remains private: who says what. (****Vitally IMPORTANT****)
Some information you may choose to share (we will discuss this as a group):
- skills you discovered employers seek in their new hires
- your strengths
- your goals
We’ll be playing games (a revisited Pokemon Go, an adapted Poker) and engaging in activities where you will discover different views about life, yourself, and even your parents.
Your parents also grow through a refreshed perspective. I invite all moms and dads who want to know more about the process, the philosophy, and the science-based psychology behind our activites to attend the workshop the week before. (Click here to find out about future workshops)
I am a Harvard MBA, the mother of 4 boys, and certified in positive psychology coaching and training methods, namely Positive Discipline (to build cooperative and respect-filled relationships) and Appreciative Inquiry (to engage in individuals and groups in change management by building on strengths)
Is There More?
I’m interested in you. It would be a delight to know how you are doing with your plan. Your choice. My (and hopefully yours too) pleasure.
