Does your teen have trouble managing their emotions? Well, they're not alone. According to Youth Beyond Blue, a total of 620,000 young Australians aged 16 to 24, experienced either anxiety or a depressive/affective disorder in the last 12 months.
If you're a parent of one of these teens you aren't alone either; that's why the fantastic not-for-profit Nillumbik Health organisation is hosting a program to help you help your kids. 'Tuning into Teens' is a six-week workshop program on emotionally intelligent parenting for parents/carers of 10 - 18 year-olds.
The program aims to assist you in teaching your teen to deal with conflict, manage emotions, and prevent many more behavioural problems.
The course will run Monday nights from October 12 - November 23 (excludes Nov 2nd) and costs $210 for individual or $370 for couples.
