TECA - Twice Exceptional Children's Advocacy presents:

2e Kids and Power Struggles – When to Pick Your Battles

In this session, we will discuss why 2e kids can be so rigid and how we as parents can decide which battles are worth fighting and when it is best to give in. We will address such issues as: establishing family values; rules and limit setting; when and why we say no to our kids; what motivates us when we fight with our kids; and, how to de-escalate conflicts, keeping in mind that safety always comes first.


Led by TECA President Melissa Sornik, LCSW and co-facilitated by TECA Executive Director Maratea Cantarella, this topic-driven group offers family members the chance to learn and share strategies for parenting our uniquely gifted 2e kids. This group is open to parents and guardians of all twice exceptional children and teens.
