A FREE program for parents and carers of teenagers aged 10 to 18 years old.

Would you like to:

  • understand your teen?
  • communicate effectively with your teen?
  • help your teen manage their emotions?
  • prevent behaviour challenges in your teen?
  • support your teen to manage conflict effectively?

Our seven-week Tuning in to Teens program teaches parents how to help their teen develop emotional intelligence.

Teenagers with higher emotional intelligence:

  • have more stable and satisfying relationships
  • are better at managing peer pressure
  • have fewer mental health and substance abuse difficulties
  • have greater success at making friends
  • are more able to manage conflict
  • have greater career success.

The course will cover:

  • emotional intelligence and why it’s important
  • the five steps of emotion coaching
  • different parenting styles
  • anger and conflict management
  • problem solving
  • emotional self-care.

“It has made me a calmer parent and my child is calmer and we feel closer to each other. She is also better able to manage her behaviour.” “The practical resources to use at home make a real difference.”
