Event description

Description

What’s in the course?

We start by looking at the change from childhood to adolescence and what we hope to gain from the course. We explore how we can meet our child’s emotional needs, taking into account their temperament and their ‘love languages’.

Stepping into our teenager’s shoes and thinking how we can help with the many changes they’re experiencing is next: the challenge is to stay connected! We consider our parenting style, its effect on our teenager, and learn about the power of a consistent approach. Encouraging responsibility and negotiating house rules are part of the programme too!

One of the biggest challenges for parents of teenagers is communication. We look at improving it by listening well, using empathy and understanding body language. How we handle conflict is also crucial, choosing your battles, checking out your anger style, and developing negotiation skills.

The final session helps us look at how we unwittingly contribute to negative behaviour by our responses. We also consider the values we want to pass on to our kids and how to build good, lasting memories.

Session titles:

  • Session 1 – Temperament and emotional needs
  • Session 2 – Why it’s tough being a teenager
  • Session 3 – Parenting styles
  • Session 4 – Communication
  • Session 5 – Handling conflict
  • Session 6 – The Big issues
  • Sessions 7 – Building strong families

We Provide workbooks at an extra cost of £7.50 that can be an optional purchase on the day.

Refreshments are included with the ticket price.

You can pay on the day but please book your place first.
