The Times They are A’changin’:

Challenges to Parenting Post-Millennial Adolescents

September 25, 2018; 7:00 pm


Psychological Science in a 21st Century Psychoanalytic Hospital


There have always been special challenges to parenting teen-agers – responding to growing independence, changes in parent-child and peer relationships, unfolding sexuality, and uncertainty regarding the future, whether it be starting high school, applying for college, or anticipating what life will be like after graduation. Parents & Conversations provides a forum for an exploration among parents as to how these developmental trials have evolved in the post-millennial period.

Questions to be explored include:

  • What new challenges have emerged for parents?
  • What new social pressures exist for teens?
  • How is social media affecting teens and parent-child relationships?
  • What’s happening regarding moral development and the relationship to authority?
  • Who is responsible for a teen’s safety?
  • What should parents be aware of and how to be informed?

Join with other parents for an exploration of these questions, and more, as Yellowbrick and WGN team up to create an open discussion of parents’ experience.

Seating is limited.

Hope to see you September 25th @ 7:00 pm.
