NEXT RESILIENCE WORKSHOPS:  

9:30am - 2:30pm on Wednesday 15th May 2019

 

This workshop covers all aspects of the teenage years; the changes they are undergoing, the challenges they face and how we, as parents, can successfully navigate our way through the teenage years. There is a common myth that conflict is a necessary and fundamental part of the teenage years. However, teenagers need to become less reliant on us as parents in order to establish their independence and autonomy and much tension can be avoided by us, as parents, allowing our children enough safe, bounded space in which to grow.

  • Why teenagers behave the way they do

  • How to understand (and positively engage with) the teenage mind

  • How to keep boundaries in place whist encouraging independence of thought

  • The importance of giving your teenager trust and responsibility

  • How to really enjoy your child's teenage years
