It was presented in a very practical way that was considerate to the modern world of parenting, it meant not leaving feeling overwhelmed but instead just feeling more equip then when you started". Eliese ~ parent 2022

"A worthwhile course to gain a more in-depth understanding of how to assist your child to regulate emotions. As well as a great program to assist your parenting with an age appropriate behaviour management style. It’s a course to suit a wide variety of children's ages & needs and is very adaptable to each household".~ parent 2022

  • Understanding your job as parent/carer of a teenager – observer, advisor, negotiator, director.
  • A three-option model for decision making... a ‘drop down’ menu for parents.
  • Working out how NOT to respond in tricky emotional encounters.
  • Building your relationship with your teenager.
  • How to hold difficult conversations more successfully when discussing issues such as phone use, sibling conflict, disrespect, truancy, going out, school work, helping out at home… and much more.

Running over 2-3 Sessions.
