Are you a parent wanting to understand how to navigate the emerging adulthood years? Then this webinar is for you. 

According to psychologists, the years following late adolescence until becoming an adult is called the "Emerging Adulthood" life stage". These years may be incredibly challenging for both the "Emerging Adult” and their parents. 

Parents will be given real-world examples of what to expect during the emerging adulthood years, learn about the common pitfalls that hinder personal development & psychological maturity, and how to handle the conflict in the relationship that comes with the shift in roles from parent-child to parent-adult.
