Norfolk Public Library offers Workshop Especially for Mothers of Teens Motherhood as a Transformative Journey The Teen Years: A Growth
“Motherhood is not only about mothering the child, it is also about the mother herself. There are many phases during a mother’s journey where it is difficult if not impossible for a mother to take care of her own psychological well-being. Teenage children place special demands upon mothering, and challenge assumptions about love and caring. At such times mood swings, anxiety, depression, guilt and anger are normal and completely natural emotions”. Dr. Kumkum Malik will offer a three part series of conversations around how mothers can view the teenage years as a growth
opportunity for themselves. These conversations will focus on the mother’s journey, and the road forward. This workshop will not be addressing how to parent teens.
