For practical tips and advice on growing great teens visit the Parenting Place.
They offer ‘Toolbox’ courses to inspire and equip families. They are bursting with great advice, humour and encouragement, offering practical strategies and insights into developmental stages. Parents leave reassured that challenges are common to all families and that they are not alone on their parenting journey.
Courses are run over 6 weeks in a relaxed and conversational small group setting with a trained facilitator. The four courses – Building Awesome Whānau, Early Years, Middle Years, and Teens and Tweens run nationwide all year. There is also a ‘Grandparents Raising Grandchildren’ resource available.
