About the Event
This parent course is a 4-week virtual class with exclusive access to a platform of resources.
The belief that underpins this course is that parents and guardians have the resources already, but they don’t always realise it. By providing a safe, creative and collaborative space, we will move swiftly past the theory of the teenage brain and dive deep into what parenting teenagers looks and feels like to us as individuals. Using a mix of NLP tools, coaching, Non-Violent Communication tools, self-reflection and group discussion, we connect with ourselves as parents to better connect with our teens. Creating Connections is a course open exclusively to MESSAGE members to give our members confidence and courage to meet the challenges (and the joys!) of their children’s teen years.
Some of the topics that the course will cover:
- The Teenage Brain: Recognising the physical and emotional changes taking place during the teenage years
- Communicating effectively with teens
- Being a positive role model for your teen (and looking after you!)
- Understanding and managing risk-taking behaviour
- Ensuring mutual parent-teen respect
