TRIPLE P PARENTING GROUP for Parents of Teenagers (First Steps)
July 9 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Friday, happening 8 times
Do you have a child aged 12-16?
Adolescence brings lots of challenges, stresses, and rewards – both for a teen and for their parents. First Steps are going to be running a group for mums, dads and carers of teenagers, called the First Steps Triple P Parenting Group. Triple P (Positive Parenting Programme) aims to help parents understand the way their family works and suggests simple routines and small changes that can make a big difference. It has been helpful for many parents and may give some useful ideas to help you meet the challenges of raising your teenager.
The group will cover a number of topics, including:
– Encouraging behaviours you like
– Developing positive relationships
– Teaching new skills and behaviours
– Dealing with teenagers’ emotions
– Managing problem behaviour
– Dealing with risky behaviour
– Taking care of yourself as a parent
We will do a range of activities in the group, including watching video clips, discussing experiences and concerns, sharing ideas, completing exercises, practising skills, home tasks, telephone support.
If you are interested in attending the group, then you can self-refer or ask a professional to refer you. Please call us on 0207 014 7135 to find out more information and to see if this group is right for you. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis, so please call soon. We will look forward to hearing from you!
