Setting boundaries and expectations with children and adolescents is a tricky business. If you’re too restrictive, your child may revolt. If you’re boundaries are too loose, you may lose control. In this talk you will learn strategies that work to maintain your parental authority and support your child’s developing independence and competence. You will learn:


  • What parenting style you currently use and what might be its long-term consequences.
  • What are healthy boundaries and expectations and how to set them.
  • How to let my child make mistakes and take responsibility.
  • What the long term consequences are of helicopter parenting.


This talk is relevant for parents, grandparents, school administrators, counselors, teachers, community and political leaders. It is customizable to suit your needs and can be given as a keynote or an interactive workshop.
