The Parenting Teenagers Course – March 1, 2012 for five weeks

Would you like your family life to be the best if can be? Are you struggling as a parent of a teenager?

St Peter’s Church in Harrow are running a five week course, free, for those parenting 10-18 year olds, starting March 1, 2012 from 7.45 – 9.45pm.

Parenting is such an important role and parenting teenagers is challenging in many ways. Discovering we are not alone in the challenges we face and picking up ideas from other parents and various experts are just some of the reasons for joining this course. The course was developed by Nicky and Sila Lee, authors of The Parenting Book who have been married over 30 years and have 4 children. Courses have been running for about 10 years and are updated regularly. In fact the DVD we are using was only made in 2011.

The course gave really helpful ways to deal with seemingly impossible situations.

The course covers areas such as meeting our teenagers needs, setting healthy boundaries, helping to develop their emotional health and ways to pass on values and help them make good choices as well as tackling some of those trickier issues.

The course is for parents who are about to face the teenage years with their children or who are already well into it. Whether you are a single parent, parenting as part of a couple, a step parent or a carer of 10-18 year old you are welcome to come and join us.

‘Hearing other parents is reassuring and finding the tools to use is brilliant.’

The evening consists of a practical talk via DVD with both parents and teenagers sharing their experiences, interviews and advice from various parenting experts followed by a time of discussion in a small group with parents with children at a similar stage. Each week they’ll also be coffee and yummy cake served too.

All the sessions tackle really good stuff and they don’t skirt around the issues.
