The family remains the single greatest influence in most young people’s lives. We all want to protect our children, raise them well, give them the best education and all our skills. We all know that bringing up a child is one of the toughest and at same time one of the most rewarding challenges in our lives.

Do you wish you could improve the relationship with your child?

Are you worried that your child might be negatively influenced by friends at school?

Do you want to be appreciated more by your children?

Do you want to meet other parents to discuss the joys and difficulties of being a parent?

The teenage parenting programme is here for all families with young people aged between 10 and 14 years of age to help prepare them for their teenage years. This 7 week evidence-based programme is aimed at reducing behavioural problems in adolescence, alcohol and drug use and strengthening the parent- child relationship.

Through discussions, fun games and activities families solve problems together, learn about rules and consequences and explore ways to show love, support and strengthen family communication.

There is a great deal of research that has shown benefits to both adults and young people who have attended the programme. The programme is unique in the way it works with both parents and children, bringing them together.
