Parenting Teenagers Effectively: Relationship is The Key

This 8-week course is designed to help you understand, connect and communicate more effectively with your teenager

Parenting teenagers in the 21st century can be really tough!
We want to keep our teenagers safe, we want to support them, and we want to help them to grow into responsible young people.

This course aims to build on the relationship you as a parent/primary carer have with your teenager. It will help you draw out the challenges you face, and facilitate the emergence of ideas which will empower you to solve your own problems with your teenager.

Some of the issues we will be exploring are:

• What is it like to be a teenager in the 21st century?
• ‘Getting through’- reconnecting our relationship with our teenagers
• Positive communication and positive discipline
• Specific difficulties and behaviours
• Understanding drug and alcohol use in young people

Some of the outcomes from the course may be:
• Understanding our teenagers better
• Improvements in our relationship with our teenagers
• Learning tools and techniques that help us connect and communicate effectively
• A reduction in difficulties, behaviours and parental stress
• Parental practices that can promote good outcomes around drugs & alcohol use
