09/17/19 SFP Week 2: In week two, our activities were used to help caregivers understand the changes that are going on in youth’s lives and the need to enforce rules. We had wonderful discussion at the beginning of our parent session about how they are showing love and setting limits. By practicing “I feel…” statements, caregivers learned the importance of enforcing rules without criticism.
In our youth session, they acknowledged their own frustrations in life and how their parents also have difficulties. This led to further conversation about understanding how stress influences us in the ways we act and how we communicate.
As families joined back together, we discussed ways in which youth and their caregivers appreciate each-other. Families identified their strengths and values to build a family tree!
