Tuning in to Teens™ - City of Yarra

A 6-week program supporting parents/carers in the City of Yarra to enhance your parenting skills and focus on building your relationship with your child.

Would you like to be better equipped to support your child as they navigate adolescence and build their independence?

Join our workshop series and learn how to:

  • better understand and help your child navigate this important developmental phase
  • strengthen your relationship with your child
  • coach your child to manage strong emotions like worry, anger and sadness
  • build your child’s problem solving, conflict resolution, and resilience skills
  • help your child develop healthy friendships.

Tuning in to Teens™ teaches parents how to help their children develop emotional intelligence. This key skill can help them better cope with emotions, better engage in learning, improve their mental health, and have more stable and satisfying relationships.
