Bringing Up Great Kids - Parenting Adolescents

Bringing Up Great Kids

Bringing Up Great Kids: Parenting Adolescents is a six-week supportive program for parents with children aged 10 to 18 years.

This is a reflective, mindful, respectful program that provides parents with an opportunity to reflect on parenting their adolescents. The program provides a friendly and safe environment for parents to learn from each other as they continue their parenting journey.

Program content supports parents and carers to:

  • Learn more about the origins of their own parenting style and how it can be more effective;
  • Identify the important messages they want to convey to their adolescent and how to achieve this;
  • Learn more about brain development during the adolescent period and its influence on their thoughts, feelings and behaviour;
  • Explore the meaning and context behind adolescents’ behaviours, and how to respond to the underlying feelings and needs;
  • Explore new ways of communicating with adolescents;
  • Discover ways for parents to take care of themselves and to find support when they need it and practice self-compassion.
