Do you worry about your teenager? Do you feel stressed and tired? Do you find it difficult to understand your teenager and struggle to communicate with them? Do you feel that they don’t listen to you? Then you’re not alone!
It’s important to acknowledge as much as parenting can be fulfilling and joyful, it can also be confusing, challenging and emotionally exhausting at times; it’s one of the hardest jobs you can do and unfortunately, there is no manual!
For your teenagers to flourish and achieve their potential, the rest of the family, including parents, need to be supported too. There is an old saying; ‘it takes a village to raise a child’. If this is true, then the child cannot be raised well unless the village is happy, sustained and well resourced.
What does the programme offer?
The Young Greenwich Parenting Support Programme is a FREE service aimed at parents of teenage children who live in the Royal Borough of Greenwich. Its purpose is to empower, support and champion parents by giving them the tools to improve their wellbeing and relationships with their teenagers.
The program offers a range of services including:
- Topic focussed group sessions
- Peer- support groups
- 1-2-1 family coaching sessions
- 1-2-1 counselling sessions for parents
We provide a non-judgemental space for parents to connect, share and grow together. Our approach is unique because it’s less focused on your ‘parenting style’, and more on YOU as an individual; what you need, what drives you and what can support you to be happier and therefore a happier parent.
Where will the programme take place?
Due to Covid-19 Restrictions, all sessions will initially be taking place online via Zoom. In person sessions will take place only once we feel we can provide safe environments which are compliant with government guidance. The dates and times for group sessions will be confirmed in due course.
For more information or to register for this amazing, free service, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will aim to contact you within 5 working days.
