Talking Teens: From Child to *****. A workshop for Longdean School parents., Longdean School, Thursday, 27. June 2019

Would you like to find out more about how the brain is developing during the teen years and what you can do to help?
Do you struggle to cope with your teenager’s changing moods?
Are you worried about social media, managing your child's time spent on devices and their behaviour on the devices?
Is your child approaching the teenage years and you would like to be prepared?
There is a great deal of current research into the development of the teenage brain and we know that many parents are interested in why and how the teenage brain is changing during adolescence but, in particular want to know what they can do to support their children during this time and deal with any tricky behaviour that they might see.
We are, therefore, pleased to offer "Talking Teens: from child to *****" a popular, two and a half hour workshop that addresses these questions.
A Supporting Links workshop is not a lecture. It is an interactive learning experience BUT you will not be required to participate in any role play!
 It is a practical session for parents and carers of all children at Longdean School and will give you an understanding of why young people behave the way that they do and what you can do about it with practical up to date ways of improving communication, encouraging independence and reducing conflict.
 Through the use of group discussion, individual/group activities and written materials you will learn about:

 The Teen Brain: Understanding why teenagers take risks and want to experiment
 Recognising the physical and emotional changes that are happening for our children during the teenage years and why their behaviour changes.                        
The link between behaviour and communicating difficult feelings
Why arguments escalate and how to stop this happening
How to negotiate during a conflict situation
Helping our children to manage their use of social media and devices

Parents will leave with the skills to apply thisunderstanding within their families.
Previous attendees have said:
“Excellent teen brain explanation. Very well delivered and engaging session”
“Good tips on how to cope and manage the teenage years – well done!”
"I have already changed my attitude towards my 12 turning 13 year old daughter by accepting her behaviour rather than being annoyed (often really annoyed!) by it and the results have been quite remarkable."
The workshop will take place at Longdean School and the exact location will be advised nearer the time. It will begin promptly at 6.30pm.
The cost of the workshop is being covered by the school and there are a number of limited places which will be offered on a first come first served basis.
Please be aware that this workshop is usually fully booked with a long waiting list so if you are unable to attend then please let us know, in good time if possible, by emailing info@ so that we can offer your place to someone else.
We will be holding a waiting list and will offer places as and when they become available.
