When it comes to hanging out with friends, teenagers are expected to plan and host get-togethers largely on their own, free of parents’ intervention. But, planning and hosting a hang out is a complex process, full of social nuances that can be confusing. Justyna Balzar, MEd, BCBA, will: (1) provide an overview of the key skills that teens need to master so they can successfully plan and host a hangout; and (2) ways you can help without undermining their newly found independence.
