The Parenting Teenagers Course is for every type of parenting situation, including parenting on your own, step-parenting and parenting as a couple.
Over five sessions (or ten shorter ones) you will discover practical tools to help you:
- Keep your long-term aim in mind
- Meet your teenagers’ needs
- Set effective boundaries
- Help develop your teenagers’ emotional health
- Pass on values and help them make good choices
A warm, welcoming and encouraging atmosphere awaits you whether it be in a home, restaurant, cafe, community hall, church or school. Each session begins with something to eat and drink and follows with practical talks that are informative and fun, perhaps presented live or played on DVD. They include filmed clips of parents and teenagers sharing their own experiences, street interviews and advice from parenting experts. Small groups based on the age of your oldest child will help you to discuss the challenges you are facing and how to establish long term strategies. Every part of the course is optional, including contributing to the small group discussions.
