This lecture opens by highlighting the unique challenges faced by parents of this generation’s adolescents in their attempts to influence their children, followed by a presentation of two ineffective parental coping patterns: the doormat and the tyrant.

This is followed by a comprehensive approach to parent leadership based on seven skills:

  • Boundary-setting
  • Communicative dialogue
  • Educational partnership
  • Empowerment
  • Flexibility
  • Personal example
  • Strategizing

The focus will be on boundary-setting and communicative dialogue, skills that help parents to influence their children in a beneficial way.

The lecture combines knowledge from the fields of child development, family therapy, and organizational consulting with case studies taken from the lecturer’s personal and professional “file”. Includes a slide show combining video segments for illustration.
