Following Alicia Drummond’s successful Parenting Workshops, we look forward to welcoming her back on Saturday 7th March, from 8.45am to 1pm in Groves Hall. The workshop is aimed at all parents, but may be of particular interest to parents of pupils in our Third and Fourth Forms. It is designed to give parents a better understanding of teenagers, offering the tools and skills for a smooth ride through adolescence and a forum to exchange ideas and thoughts with other parents.
Alicia Drummond of Let’s Talk, who is a BACP accredited counsellor and parent coach, has been working with teenagers and families for years, both in private practice and in schools. The workshop covers: how teenager’s emotional, physical and cognitive developmental needs drive behaviour; how our role as parents needs to change as they change; how to open and maintain lines of communication; how to reduce conflict; how to set boundaries (and what to do when they are broken); how to motivate teens to do what they need to do with a minimum of resistance; how to set teenagers up for success; how to build self-confidence; plus party guidelines, social networking, sexting, gaming, relationships, peer pressure, drugs and alcohol.
There is lots more information and testimonials on the Let’s Talk website, but to give you an idea of what others have thought, parents have described the workshop as “enlightening, practical, pro-active, helpful, thought provoking and surprisingly humorous”; “If you want to be reassured that you’re not alone in the trials and tribulations of raising teenagers, Alicia will do it – a no nonsense, positive approach that is refreshingly human”.
The workshop would normally cost £60 per person to attend, but we are delighted to inform you that there will be no charge to you. There are only 30 places available, which will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. To reserve a place, please email: email@example.com.
