Canadian parenting expert Alyson Schafer took parents on a journey inside the mind of a teen and helped a sold out group of parents in Richmond Hill at the Centre For Performing Arts on October 4, 2011 understand their life, their logic, how to parent them and how to help teens and parents survive and thrive in these critical years.

Alyson’s message gives society a wake up call that every parent, educator and politician should hear. Proceeds of the evening talk went to York Region Youth Shelter and to Building More BMX Parks and Legal Graffiti Art Projects funded by donations to A gang prevention message and were represented at the evening sponsored by Espresso Blu Cafe.
