Being the parent of a teenager is challenging.
The teenage years can be hard, for both teenagers and their parents. Most people have memories of particularly challenging situations - whether as a teen or later as a parent. Talking with other people - whether family, friends or external agencies - can be really useful at various stages of your child's life.
In our weekly newsletter to parents we have been publishing parenting advice from the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program® on topics such as 'Getting Results', 'Self Esteem', and 'Rudeness and Disrespect'. The next focus is 'Raising Responsible Teenagers'.
In May 2019, we are hosting two seminars and one discussion group offering parenting help to our Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9 parents and to parents of Year 6 pupils from our partner schools in The Corinium Education Trust. These events are designed to offer practical advice to parents who are interested in developing their skills and understanding of dealing with young people at different stages of their journey through adolescence.
These free events will be delivered by trained staff from the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program®. A member of Deer Park staff will be on hand to welcome and direct parents, but will not remain for the sessions. Please note that children are not allowed to attend with parents.
Refreshments will be available from 5.45pm at all three events. If you are interested in attending any of these sessions, please email us to enable us to plan effectively.
