About this Event

A talk for parents of children of all ages from pre-school to aged 18 years old. Join Kim McCabe, author of 'From Daughter to Woman' as she discusses practical ways to make the teenager's journey safer, kinder and better by laying the foundation from as young as pre-school age.

Do not miss this opportunity to reflect on your parenting and gain some tips to forge the kind of relationships you want with your children, even when things get tough. Teenagers are great people and in spite of all the reports on how teens are running into serious difficulties, you can have a great time parenting one through this wonderful stage of life.

Kim has an optimistic view on parents' ability to guide our girls (and boys) through. These fickle and often frustrating young people can transform into the creators of an inspiring future.

In this seminar organised by Busy Rascals, Kim will share with you what she has learned in her years of working with preteen and teen girls. She will give you some easy-to-implement practical suggestions and will leave you with plenty of food for thought.

This talk is for anyone interested in steering their daughters happily through their teens, from parents of daughters age 8 - 18 years, flummoxed grandmothers and caring aunties too, and anyone who works closely with pre-teen and teenage girls. The talk will last an hour followed by a twenty-minute question and answer session. Kim's book willl be on sale and she will be available to sign copies afterwards.

What will be covered:

Why do girls lose confidence as they go through adolescence?

A simple practical tool for staying in close connection with your child even through the teen years

Anxiety, body image and peer pressure

Acknowledging a child’s maturing so they don’t feel they have to prove themselves

Best-selling author and psychologist Steve Biddulph says, "I can't believe how much depth and the range of ideas Kim has put into one book."

"One thing I know is that this is the type of book I can keep dipping in and out for a long time. I found it all insightful , without any preachiness. I was reassured from the outset ... this book has helped boost my confidence that I am doing a good job to help [my daughter]." - Zoe, mother of pre-teen girl

"Important piece of work. I have never understood the pressures on my daughter until today. It gives me a lot of tools to be a better dad." - Jim, father of teen girl

Please note that for security reasons, admission to this event is for ticket-holders only.

Start time: 7.00pm prompt, doors open 6:30pm

1 hr talk and approx 20-30 mins Q&A

Finish: 8.30pm (as we intend to start on time!)

Followed by 20-30 mins Book signing, where Kim's books will be available to purchase and signed.

Is the talk for Dads too?

Dads are welcome and encouraged. Kim talks about the impact of the father-daughter relationship.

What if I'm not a parent?

Please come, children benefit hugely from the attention of adults who aren't parents. Teachers, youth workers, godparents, 'aunties' all have a powerful part to play in guiding our next generation.

My daughter is only 5, is this talk still for me?

Parents say they no longer dread the teen years after hearing Kim speak and they feel better prepared. They come away with tools they can put into immediate use whatever their child's age.

My daughter is already a teenager, is this talk still for me?

Absolutely! Parents and carers come away with tools they can put into immediate use whatever their child's age.

I've got sons, can I still come along?

Absolutely, much of what Kim talks about applies to boys as well as girls.
