Growing Confidence Sessions 2018/19 - What is actually going on in their heads?

Supporting your young person through their teenage years can be hugely challenging - not only on your relationship with them, but also on their friendships and on their experience of the wider world.  The Growing Confidence sessions are designed to help unravel the mysteries of living with a teenager, and shed some light on both how their brain works and what you, as parents and carers, can do to support them along the way.

Last year our Growing Confidence programme got some really positive feedback from parents, for giving an insight into the changes that take place during the teenage years, and the impact this has on how they behave. 

The sessions are really informal, so if you’d like to support your young person through their teenage years and build a positive relationship, then come along and find out more. We look forward to seeing you.  Further information on sessions attached below.

The first session ‘The Teenage Years - Why what you do Matters’ is on Wednesday 26th September 6.00pm - 8.00pm.  All welcome!!
