Healthy Boundaries

Family Service of Glencoe (FSG) and District 35 are co-sponsoring a special community talk on Tuesday, November 14 at 7pm for parents on “Healthy Boundaries:  How to Hold Them and What Gets in the Way” with guest speaker Dr. Brad Reedy co-owner and clinical director of Evoke Therapy Programs.

Dr. Reedy has developed an accessible approach to adolescents, young adults, and their parents. His powerful ability to use his own story and stories from the thousands of families he has treated offers hope to families suffering with mental health, addiction, and stage-of-life issues. He will explain the difference between boundaries and limits and explore the do’s and don’ts about boundaries and setting them in our relationships.

“Boundaries help make life predictable and safe for kids,” noted FSG Clinical Director Al Ross, LCSW, RDDP. “One of the greatest struggles many parents experience is establishing and maintaining appropriate boundaries in terms of their children’s behavior and activities. Dr. Reedy’s down-to-earth style and practical wisdom make his teachings tremendously valuable to those faced with the challenges of parenting in a time when the ability to stay on top of our kids’ activities is becoming more and more difficult.”

Dr. Reedy is a parenting and youth expert who has worked extensively with children and families for over 20 years. He is the author of The Journey of the Heroic Parent: Your Child’s Struggle & the Road Home. He holds a PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy from Brigham Young University, and is the father of four children.

This free discussion is open to the public and takes place at Central School’s Young Auditorium, 620 Greenwood Avenue, Glencoe. The program is geared towards parents of students in third grade through high school. Reservations are requested at For more information, please contact Al at or 847-835-5111.
