Parenting your Teenager

This 6 week program looks at ways to maintain a positive relationship during the ups and downs of adolescence.

Many changes occur at puberty; these can be perplexing for teenagers as well as their parents. This is a time of developing independence for young adults while slowly and safely releasing parental control. Not an easy task!

The ‘Parenting Your Teenager’ program explores topics including:

  • What is normal adolescent behaviour?
  • The important art of continuing to communicate with your teen, even when they don’t say much
  • Knowing when you should be concerned
  • Can you still have fun with teenagers?

Parents will have the opportunity to:

  • Share experiences with other parents
  • Identify parenting traps
  • Discuss boundaries and consequences
  • Rate problem behaviour and know when to intervene

This program is aimed at parents of 13 to 18 year olds and runs for 2 hours for 5 consecutive weeks.
