Large crowd attends parenting event

February 17th, 2014 by Ethan Fowler

BAINBRIDGE ISLAND – Parents learned about effective communication with tweens and teens recently from author Laura Kastner, who’s best known for her book “Wise-Minded Parenting: Seven Essentials for Raising Successful Tweens and Teens.”

Nearly 300 people attended the event held at Bainbridge High School. It was co-sponsored by Raising Resilience and Bainbridge Youth Services.

“A great event. All of these RR events are,” Dave Cinamon said. “It was terrific to hear Laura speak — entertaining and thought provoking. I’m becoming more resilient with each event.”

Wise-minded parenting helps parents to tap into their minds to “calmly navigate even the stormiest of parenting moments.”

“I particularly like, one, how she emphasized that even with ‘perfect parenting’ teens will individuate; and, two, that teens need and want limits,” Faith Wolfson said. “Also made me want to go home and kiss my kids feet – maybe because I’m comfortable with how they choose to rebel.”

Raising Resilence’s third and final Bainbridge Healthy Youth Summit will also be held in the BHS Commons from 9 a.m. to noon March 15.
