A New Way of Living

Parenting teenagersParenting teenagers is harder than ever for most parents today, and no role we undertake in life is more important than parenting.  Taking a parenting course doesn’t mean you’re not a good parent – it simply shows that you are want the best for your family.  The Parenting Teenagers course is a five week course for any parent or carer of children between the ages of 11 and 18.

The course is made up of five weekly sessions each lasting about 2 ¼ hours including time for a meal.

The sessions cover:

  • Keeping the end in mind
  • Meeting our teenager’s needs
  • Setting boundaries
  • Developing emotional health
  • Helping them make good choices

At the parenting course you will find a great atmosphere that is open and encouraging; practical talks that are informative and fun; small groups based on the age of your oldest child so that you can meet other parents and carers at a similar stage to you; time to discuss the challenges you are facing and how to establish long-term strategies for your own family. This is what some past guests have said about the course:

“The course gave really helpful ways of dealing with seemingly impossible situations.”
“Hearing other parents is reassuring and finding the tools to use is brilliant.”
“All the sessions tackle really good stuff, and they don’t skirt around the issues.”
“We’ve been given the tools to communicate better with our teenagers.”
“It was very, very useful.”
