Parenting Teenagers:


Being a parent of a teenager brings many challenges. They are at a time when they are separating from their parents and pushing for independence and this can lead to a lot of conflict. The teenage years can be made all the more difficult if your child has specific difficulties such as behavioural, attention or learning problems.

The course is suitable for all parents and people caring for adolescents aged 11-16 years . This includes couples, lone parents, foster or step-parents, grandparents, other family members, and all other guardians and carers of children. In the Bray and Greystones area.
