Two programs that are sure to be of interest to many parents are being run in November:
This program is aimed at improving family harmony by working on parent esteem, understanding and managing teenage behaviour, understanding teenage development, and managing conflict positively. This group starts on 22 November. It runs for three weeks with each session running from 11am till 1:30pm on Wednesdays at Southern Youth and Family Services, 33 Pioneer Drive Oak Flats.
123 Magic and Emotion Coaching
123 Magic is suitable for parents and carers of children between 2 and 12 years of age. It provides education about childhood development, the link between emotion and behaviour and the development of patterns in families. It delivers strategies for understanding behaviours, responding flexibly to children depending on their need, and choosing appropriate parenting strategies. It would be beneficial for a parent or carer who would like to better understand their child's emotions and/or behaviour and needs easy and practical parenting strategies. This group runs over three consecutive Thursdays and will be held at Southern Youth and Family Services, 33 Pioneer Drive Oak Flats on 2, 9 and 16 November from 10:00am till 12:30pm.
