WHY DO THE PARENTING TEENAGERS COURSE?

- Parenting teenagers is harder than ever for most parents today

- No role we undertake in life is more important than parenting

- We are the main influence on our teenagers’ future

- Discovering we are not alone in the challenges we face and picking ideas from other parents can make a huge difference

- Taking time to reflect on our end goal can help us to build our relationship with our teenagers now

HOW DO I KNOW THE COURSE IS RIGHT FOR ME?

- Would you like to meet other parents at a similar stage?

- Would you like your family life to be the best it can be?

- Are you struggling as a parent of a teenager?

- Would you like to improve your skills as a parent of this age group?

WHAT IS COVERED ON THE PARENTING TEENAGERS COURSE?

Over five weekly sessions 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

WHAT HAPPENS ON A COURSE AND WHERE?

The course is hosted in the homes of families who have experience of parenting and often still in the process of bringing up their children. They do not purport to be experts, but do have a passion to see family life the best it can be. Each host will take a maximum of 6 parents into their home for the five week course, run on days to suit. The evening begins with meal together, followed by a DVD presentation and opportunities to discuss issues as a group, facilitated by your host.
