Understanding Your Teenager

This seminar is for parents and adults who work with teens and pre-teens. Attendees will learn what to expect from their children during the teen years and how to parent them with greater confidence, love and understanding. The six “principles for effective parenting” will give parents the road map they need to successfully guide their teens through the rough waters of adolescence.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, November 15, 2014  from 9 am – 12 pm.  The seminar will be held in the Chapel at First Baptist Church of Elk Grove (located at 8939 East Stockton Blvd, Elk Grove 95624).  Bring a pen to take notes in your Understanding Your Teenager notebook and come ready for a time of learning, new relationships, and laughter.

Dr. Les Christie, chair of the Youth Ministry Department at William Jessup University will be presenting the three hour seminar. Les was born in Liverpool, England and has worked with teens for more than 40 years, serving as youth pastor at one church for 22 years. A popular and enthusiastic speaker with a love for teenagers and parents, he has spoken to audiences in 48 states and 13 foreign countries. He has written over 200 articles in national magazines and has authored more than a dozen books. Les and his wife Gretchen live in Rocklin, California and have two grown sons.
