Erika and the Invisalign Teen® brand came together with a common desire to support parents as they navigate the critical tween and teen years. Erika’s work as an author and parenting expert is dedicated to the importance of the parental relationship in nurturing self-esteem in children. Backed by her education and years of experience along with recent insights from the Teen Confidence Study commissioned by the makers of Invisalign Teen clear aligners, Erika has developed this interactive pocket guide as a resource for parents to tackle some of the most difficult issues they face while raising happy, self-confident tweens and teens.
With a tween and teen of her own, Erika has real-life experience parenting in the age of social media. Erika uses her expertise to help parents open communication with their tweens and teens, monitor their online usage, boost their self-confidence, and get parents through the toughest times of adolescence. She also gives seminars to help parents navigate the world of social media.
