I just want to share the words of some parents who have attended my workshops for parents of teenagers:

“This is just what I’ve been looking for, Linda. Thank you so very much.” Afro-American Father of teenage boy

“Thank you so much. I will take time off work so I can come to your next workshop.” Latino Father of Middle School child

“Before this workshop my son wouldn’t talk to me. In just 3 sessions I learned how to open up the communication between me and my son. I’m happy. My son talks to me now. Thank you, Linda, for teaching me how to listen more and talk less.”  Latino Father of a High School boy

“I’m more patient now that I understand the teenage brain. Thank you, Ms. Marten. You helped me be better parent.” Mother of teenager, (new to this country)
