What is The Parenting Teenagers Course?

The Parenting Teenagers Course is for any parents, step-parents, or carers of children aged 11 to 18 years.

  • Parenting teenagers is harder than ever for most parents today
  • No role we undertake in life is more important than parenting

We are the main influence on our teenagers’ future. Discovering we are not alone in the challenges we face and picking up ideas from other parents can make a huge difference. Meeting our teenagers’ deepest needs, setting healthy boundaries, helping to develop their emotional health and teaching them how to make good choices takes skill and dedication. Taking time to reflect on our end goal can help us to build our relationship with our teenagers now.

What people have said:

“I enjoyed listening to others and spending time with other parents and having space to think through what I heard.”
“The most important thing I learnt was finding out that I’m not alone and that communication is paramount.”
