Parenting pre-teens positively: webinar
As children change when they enter the teenage years, knowing what to expect can help you handle these changes with positivity. If you have a child aged 9-12 years and you’d like some skills and strategies for negotiating the transition into the teenage years, this webinar might be for you.
This webinar looks at:
- the changes your child is going through - and how your parenting might need to change
- effective communication with your child
- limits and boundaries for your child
- your child's journey to independence
- the importance and experience of the transition from primary to secondary school.
The webinar can help you with questions like:
- When should my child have a smartphone?
- How can I help my child manage social media safely?
In the webinar, you’ll be able to ask questions, share experiences, and hear other parents’ experiences and ideas.
