Parenting Without Power Struggles is a professionally facilitated education and group support program for parents of preteens. Over 10-weeks, the program encourages parents to build on their family strengths, gain confidence in parenting an emerging teen, and discover practical ideas on how to prepare for the transition from preteen to teen.
