My Tween and Me is a parenting program for families with children aged 7-12 years.
Learn new facilitation skills to engage both parents and their tweens in our innovative curriculum that goes beyond parent education to promote strong family relationships and positive youth development for children aged 7-12 as they move through the critical transition from childhood to adolescence.
Our two and a half day newly revised Leader Training is designed to provide professionals with practical strategies and techniques that are flexible and adaptive in promoting positive youth development for tweens as they transition into adolescence and early adulthood. Becoming a My Tween and Me Leader means learning how to help parents:
-Strengthen their pre-teen’s self confidence, esteem and worth
-Positively influence their pre-teen’s choices, values and goals
-Support their tweens in making healthy decisions
The training centers around five core topics:
-Healthy development of children age 7 – 12
-Life at school as a pre-teen
-Building strong family relationships
-Encouraging strong peer relationships
-Exploring today’s pre-teen world and building community
This is a special subsidized training offered in partnership with YMCA CCRR. To be eligible to attend, you must be a school-age child care provider currently working in a licensed facility.
