Wednesday 15 May – How to stay connected and communicate with your teen or tween
Life with teens and tweens can be wonderful and challenging all at the same time. In this workshop you’ll learn 5 ways to build a stronger relationship with your child through effective communication and coaching strategies. A win-win!

Tuesday 4 June – Transitions: the secondary school survival guide for parents
The transition from primary to secondary school can be an exciting time. It marks an important stage in growing up, but like any change, it can also bring uncertainty.
