McClure Lunchroom
1915 1st Ave W.
Seattle, WA  98119

Our children have grown into teenagers and are hardly recognizable.  What happened?

Their brain is ‘under-construction.’  As a parent, you want them to gain awareness and learn from their experiences that build: 

   » critical thinking skills, 
   » interpersonal communication strengths and, 
   » appreciation for the needs of the greater community. 

Come discover how to parent your teenager with coherent narratives and how to be their surrogate brain. Hear why they are behaving like they are and learn strategies for ensuring your teenager’s optimal growth while maintaining your connection. 

Our speaker is Annie Kurz, MA, MBA, a popular local and national expert in teaching parents how to achieve a rich family and personal life.  Ms. Kurz is a dynamic speaker and likes to engage her audience.  She has Master’s degrees in both Psychology and Business Administration and runs a private counseling and coaching practice on the Eastside.  She has expertise in parent coaching, individual and couple’s counseling, and executive coaching and career counseling for major Fortune 500 companies.  She has spoken on TV and Radio, coaching on tools for decision making, goal setting and turning difficult life transitions into opportunities.  She has taught Counseling and Career Development to graduate Psychology students, and in a former life, managed a $50 million dollar marketing budget.  You can find her at
