The Triple P Teen Seminar series targets everyday concerns, such as how to encourage responsible and independent behaviour, improve family relationships, and manage concerns at school and/or with friends. Your youth is almost an adult, or at least that’s how they feel, and this can make life at home a little strained. Maybe your 13-year-old son grunts instead of speaking to you. Or your 14-year-old daughter wants to go to parties with people you don’t even know. It’s not the you’ve got a “wild” kid, but you want to make sure that you plan ahead and continue to connect with them during this important time in their lives.
Seminar #3 – Getting Teenagers Connected
Help your teenager develop good, supportive friendships. You’ll learn ways to build their confidence, encourage social skills, help them to plan and meet commitments and encourage them to take care of others.
**This is a 3-part seminar. Participation in all 3 dates is strongly recommended.**
