Tuning in to Teens™

A 6-week program supporting parents/caregivers to learn more about emotionally intelligent parenting and how to better understand and interact with your pre-adolescent/teen.


Emotionally Intelligent Parenting: Learn how to better understand and interact with your child

Backed by evidence-based research, over 6 weeks you’ll develop key skills to recognise and respond to your teen’s emotions.

Would you like to learn how to:

  • be better at understanding and talking with your teen through this important developmental phase?
  • help your teen learn to manage their emotions?
  • help to prevent behaviour problems in your teen?
  • teach your teen how to deal with conflict?

Tuning in to Teens™ teaches parents/caregivers how to help their teen develop emotional intelligence - a key skill that can help them better cope with their emotions, become more aware and assertive, and have more stable and satisfying relationships as adults.

This program covers:

  • emotional intelligence and why it’s important
  • the five steps of emotion coaching
  • different parenting styles
  • anger and conflict management
  • problem solving
  • emotional self-care.
