The Parenting Teenagers Course
What is The Parenting Teenagers Course?
The Parenting Teenagers Course was developed in 1990 by Nicky and Sila Lee (authors of The Parenting Book) for parents and care-givers looking for practical support to strengthen their family relationships.
Over five sessions, the course will help you to:
- Keep your long term aim in mind
- Meet you teenager’s needs
- Set clear boundaries
- Develop emotional health
- Help them make good choices
The course emphasises that each family is unique and each parent has their own parenting style. It recognises that the teenage years are a time of transition and we need to change the way we parent teenagers – who need understanding and acceptance as well as guidance and boundaries.
The Parenting Teenager Course is for parents, step-parents, prospective parents or carers of teenagers aged 11 – 18 years.
The course is for every type of parenting situation including parenting on your own, step-parenting and parenting as a couple.
The Parenting Teenager Course is based on Christian principles but designed for all couples with or without a church background.
Who is the Parenting Teenager Course for?
What can I expect for the Parenting Teenager Course?
On this course, you are seated in small groups based on the age of your oldest teenager so that you can meet other parents and carers with teenagers of a similar age.
Each session begins with something to eat and/or drink, giving you space to relax and chat to other parents or carers followed by a practical talk and a time for discussion in groups.
The talk is given live or on DVD and includes street interview, filmed clips of parents and teenagers sharing their own experiences and advice from parenting experts.
The Parenting Teenager Course is also available online, and would run in a fairly similar arrangement.
