Parenting Teenagers

Ruah Counselling Centre

Parenting Teenagers | 6 Weeks 

This group is designed to help parents and carers of 11 to 18-year-olds prepare their teenagers for life. The aim is to help parents learn to foster a safe and accepting environment for their teens and to increase their own coping and communication skills during this challenging and transitional time.

Over the duration of this group, we look at:

  • Keeping the End in Mind
  • Meeting our Teenagers’ Needs
  • Setting Boundaries
  • Developing Emotional Health
  • Helping Them Make Good Choices

Please note that this group does not provide a focus on the specific needs of any special interest group such as single parents, adoptive parents or individuals sharing custody. Instead, it presents universal issues, challenges and situations that we all encounter as parents, regardless of our individual situations.

Every parent could benefit from participating in this group.
