Tuning in to Teens™ Parenting program

A fabulous parenting program available for parents of 9-18 year olds!

Are you scared of the years ahead, not knowing how to navigate the teen years?

Scared they will go “off the rails”?

Did you know that third most RAPID growth period a person experiences is between 10-12 years old?? Do you think this might impact behaviour? Teen years commonly start earlier these days as we understand how they grow, change and develop.

Do you want to have a “tune up” on your parenting skills? There is a significant shift in focus when we approach these years. Want to learn more?

Would you like to learn how to:

  • be better at talking with your teen?
  • be better at understanding your teen?
  • help your teen learn to manage their emotions?
  • help to prevent behaviour problems in your teen?
  • teach your teen to deal with conflict?

Tuning in to Teens shows you how to help your teen develop emotional intelligence. Adolescents with higher emotional intelligence:

  • are more aware, assertive and strong in situations of peer pressure
  • have greater success with making friends and are more able to manage conflict with peers
  • are more able to cope when upset or angry
  • have fewer mental health and substance abuse difficulties
  • have more stable and satisfying relationships as adults
  • have greater career success –
  • Emotional intelligence may be a better predictor of academic and career success than IQ!

This program is a six week evidence based program for parents of 9-18 year olds run for 2 hours per week. It was developed by Mindful Centre at Melbourne University.

The program will teach you how to manage your own and your adolescent’s emotions in ways that help you to remain close and keep communicating. By learning these skills, you are less likely to have as much conflict within your family and your teen is more likely to talk to you about the challenging issues they face. These are factors that have been found to reduce the risk of mental health and substance abuse problems. 

Completion certifications will be provided when full attendance is achieved.

Investment: $347 per person or $547 per couple.

Why join an LIVE ONLINE program with Anne?                              Hear from participants.

I found “Tuning Into Teens LIVE ONLINE” a very helpful course especially for a older parent of a daughter about to turn 13. Anne’s sessions were informative, engaging and closed well, which can be difficult to achieve with a group on Zoom. Anne’s personality, style, knowledge and her course content made the course enjoyable. Highly recommended. Thank you Anne. I am confident that I now have the tools to engage in a quality relationship with my children. Josh, Maroubra, August 2021

I just wanted to say thank you for your course over the last 6  weeks.  It was really really good. I really feel that we covered many things that have already helped with my kids and myself. To be honest I wasn’t expecting a lot. We have had to do a lot of court ordered things over the last 6 months and many have sounded good but the reality fell short. Your course was very different and I started to really look forward to our sessions. So thank you.             Dr Chantal, Melbourne, August 2021

Anne is knowledgeable and understands teens. Moreso, she delivers her knowledge in a fun and educational manner. Dr. Michael Boulattouf, Sydney, April 2022
