GROUPS FOR PARENTS OF CHILDREN 11 TO 14 YEARS

Raising teenagers can be challenging but this task can be less stressful if parents don't have to do it all on their own. Getting support in a Triple P Group Course can be very reassuring as well as provide positive strategies to help you promote your teenager's development.

In a Group Triple P course you'll learn about:

•  Providing a home that guides and supports teenagers as they strive to become independent, well-adjusted young adults

•  Helping teens to become skilled at making good personal decisions

•  Negotiating rules, responsibilities and privileges

•  Staying calm when inevitable conflicts arise

•  Being realistic – every teen and every parent will make mistakes. Most mistakes are minor and parents learn as they go along.

•  Taking care of yourself as a parent

Groups are run by accredited Triple P practitioners. There are four 2-hour sessions (once per week), followed by three 15 to 30 minute telephone calls (once per week) to talk about your individual progress, then a final group session.
