The teenage years can be tricky for children and parents alike. It’s their time to explore, work out who they are independently of their parents and, of course, to push a few boundaries. Adolescence is a time of great change in the brain and this has important implications for behaviour. Add high learning potential to this mix and it all gets a lot trickier.
This workshop will draw on the research into development and behaviour management to explore tried and tested strategies for creating the harmony we all aim for. Our children are only teenagers once so it needs to be a happy, fulfilling time for them and their families.
