IS THIS YOU? You are doing a pretty good job at raising your teenager, but sometimes you struggle with knowing how to manage your teenager’s emotions. This can be particularly challenging when you too find it hard to remain calm. Do you know that the most important thing is for teenagers to learn how to calm themselves when they get upset about something? Parents can help by acknowledging the emotional experience and providing appropriate support without being intrusive. Learning to manage emotions is an important life skill that parents can teach their teenagers by following some simple steps. This Triple P (Positive Parenting Programme) small group workshop will look at some of the reasons why teenagers can become emotional and gives some practical suggestions to both help you teach your teenager how to manage their emotions and manage any problems if you need to.

IS THIS YOU? Most of the time, parenting is fun. You know you are doing a good job, but sometimes you struggle when your child doesn’t do as they are told. Do you know that it’s natural for children to test their limits, but they also need to learn to follow instructions? You can teach your child to cooperate and do the right thing. You also need a plan for dealing with disobedience if it happens, so you can follow through and make sure children do what they’ve been asked to do. This Triple P (Positive Parenting Programme) workshop will look at some of the reasons why children may not do as they are told and will give you some practical suggestions to help you prevent disobedience, teach your child limits and manage any problems if you need to.
