Parenting expert Mike Riera to give talk at M-A PAC on Jan. 31

by Linda Hubbard Gulker on January 28, 2013

Dr. Mike Riera

Parenting expert Mike Riera, Ph.D., will speak about “The Hidden Logic of Teenagers: How to Hear What They Aren’t Saying”  on Thursday, Jan. 31 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm at the M-A Center for the Performing Arts in Atherton.

Dr. Riera is one of the country’s foremost authorities on children and teens, and he is known for providing no-nonsense, practical advice for parents in understanding their adolescents. He literally wrote the book on parent-teen communication in his bestsellers Uncommon Sense for Parents of Teenagers and A Field Guide to the American Teenager.

At the upcoming free talk, you’ll:

  • Learn why teenagers do what they do and learn why they can’t/won’t explain it to you
  • Learn how to tie discipline to the development of integrity
  • Learn how to influence them in the areas of their life that matter the most
  • Learn how to hear what they are not quite saying
  • Learn how to have the Big Talks: Drugs, Alcohol, Sex, Money, Internet
  • Learn how to maximize your influence
  • Learn about normal adolescent development: physical, thinking, and social identity
  • Learn why it’s more important to be their parent rather than their friend
  • And most of all:  learn to enjoy this beautiful (and frustrating) phase of family life!
