Do you find yourself asking:
“Why doesn’t my teenager want to talk to me anymore?”
“Why does my teenager want to spend all their time with their friends or in their room?”
“What is happening to my teenagers brain and how can I support them with these changes?”
At Sharing Parenting we believe all parents should have access to good quality, reliable parenting information and support.
What other job do you start without the relevant training, supervision and support – not to mention lack of sleep, time and money!?
Join us and other parents and carers on our Raising Teens course which is an open access parenting course, delivered once a week for 10 weeks – two hour sessions each week aimed at parents of teenagers.
Some of the topics covered on both these courses are:-
- Parenting Roles – Learn to give your self a pat on the back for all the parenting roles you play everyday
- Communication – Styles of parenting – What is an assertive parent and how does this support your teenager?
- Needs – Our changing teenager’s needs and our needs too
- Understanding Challenging Behaviour – Why does your teenager want to take risk taking activities?
- Active Listening – What does this really mean and how does this help to keep a calm house?
- Effective Discipline – What positive behaviour changes can you make to support your teenager?
- Labelling – Does a label effect behaviour?
- Building Self-Esteem – at home, with friendships, school work, exams and more
The primary aim of this parenting programme is to offer parents a supportive, informal environment, in which to gain information, knowledge and skills around parenting issues for parents of pre-teens, teenagers and young adults.
