WHAT IS THE PARENTING TEENAGERS COURSE?
The Parenting Teenagers Course (TPTC) was developed in 1990 by Nicky and Sila Lee (authors of The Parenting Book) for parents and care-givers looking for practical support to strengthen their family relationships.Over five sessions, the course will cover the following:
- Lesson 1 – Keep your long term aim in mind
- Lesson 2 – Meet you teenager’s needs
- Lesson 3 – Set clear boundaries
- Lesson 4 – Develop emotional health
- Lesson 5 – Help them make good choices
WHO IS IT FOR?
The Parenting Teenagers Course is for parents, step-parents, prospective parents or carers of teenagers aged 11-18 years.
The course is for every type of parenting situation including parenting on your own, step-parenting and parenting as a couple.
The Parenting Teenagers Course is based on Christian principles but designed for all couples with or without a church background.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
On The Parenting Teenagers Course, you are seated in small groups based on the age of your oldest child so that you can meet other parents and carers with teenagers of a similar age.
Each session begins with something to eat and/or drink, giving you space to relax and chat to other parents or carers followed by a practical talk and a time for discussion in groups.
The talk is given on DVD and includes street interview, filmed clips of parents and teenagers sharing their own experiences and advice from parenting experts.
