PEP Talks - Tuesdays in August and September

 My spouse and I don’t agree on how to discipline our son.

What worked with our oldest son blows up in my face with our daughter!

Does curfew REALLY matter?

All teens go through this, right?   RIGHT?????

I get so tired of playing good cop/bad cop because I’m always the bad cop.

 

There seems to be so much yelling going on in our family.  Honestly, sometimes I feel like giving up!

Sound familiar????  Then you might benefit from P.E.P. Talks, a parent-to-parent lunch forum that begins on Tuesday, August 18th.
