Tuning in to Teens - Parenting Post-Lockdown: Year 8 Students (Online)

How can we raise resilient children who are overcoming a big disruption?

Are you:

  • struggling to get your teen out of bed and to school?
  • worrying about your teen’s connection to school and friendships?
  • feeling like it’s impossible to motivate your teen to do their homework?
  • wondering how you can get back to a happier household?
  • feeling like you’re constantly flipping your lid?

The ‘new-normal’ isn’t the same as pre-pandemic life. It’s understandable if you and your teen are still feeling the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated lockdowns.

In this one-hour session, we’ll cover key developmental changes that are happening for your teen; how they were, and will be, impacted by this global crisis; strategies to help you build their emotional intelligence and resilience; and ways to help you better connect with them.

Ideal for

Parents/carers of students in year 8, attending a school in the City of Yarra.
