‘Living with Teenagers’ is a free six week programme for parents run at regular intervals throughout the year.

The course is supportive and fun and we create a safe, confidential, friendly and non-judgemental environment. The course offers parents the opportunity to meet others, get support, and make new friends; share experiences and difficulties; learn new skills and find positive solutions to problems.

The course covers the following:

  • Helping to understand young peoples’ behaviour.
  • Working in small groups to make realistic plans for change.
  • Improving listening, communication, negotiation and problem solving skills in order to reduce conflict.
  • Coping with stress and anger and finding practical ways to increase confidence and relaxation.
  • Introducing strategies for parents to support each other.
  • Helping to increase positive thoughts and feelings.
