This “Tuning in to Teens” course is ideal for parents with children aged 9-19 years and you need to come to all the sessions to make the most out of the course.  I like to limit this course to only 16 parents which allows plenty of time for discussion.

This course is approved by the NHS and is one of the best courses for helping parents I have personally come across. It is evidence-based and by the end of the course you should:

  • Have a better understanding of what “normal” adolescent behaviour is!
  • Have a reduction in family conflict
  • See a reduction in your children’s anxiety and challenging behaviour as well as an improvement in their mental health
  • Feel more connected and empathetic towards your child and the less reactive to their emotions
  • Have seen an improvement in the quality of family communication and relationships
  • Ensure your children feel that you really do listen to them
  • Have an improved awareness of your own emotional needs and well-being and how you can support yourself as you parent your children

The course focuses on helping parents become emotionally intelligent parents, better able to manage their own and their children’s emotions and behaviour which ultimately helps to improve and build stronger family relationships.

This course covers 4 sessions which run at Company Spaces, Taunton from 7 PM-8:45 PM in 2 week blocks on the following dates:

Tues 3 & Tues 10 March

Tues 24 & Mon 30 March

  • An opportunity to meet other parents in a warm, friendly, non-judgemental space.
