About this course
In this course, Dr. Justin Coulson (Happy Families) discusses research he conducted with over 400 teenage girls into what they see as being positive about their adolescence and what they worry about. He looks into what they don’t (can’t?) talk to their parents about, what changes the girls would make in their lives if they could, and what advice they would have him pass on to their parents. Compiling results from the interviews and surveys, Coulson proposes that parents should work to enhance their connection and acceptance of their daughters, their daughters’ autonomy, and the self-compassion of both parties. He examines the primary elements of these qualities and offers exercises to help parents develop them.
