About the event

If you struggle when:

  • your teen or tween slams the doors, screams, or cries and it's hard to figure out why
  • whatever you say is met with silence 
  • your teen or tween is struggling with their emotions
  • you are trying to support your child but nothing  seems to be working
  • you feel like you are being blamed, criticised or attacked regardless of what you say or do

Then join Anna for this practical, hands-on workshop. It’s designed for anyone who lives, works or plays with children in their teenage years - parents, grandparents, teachers, caregivers.

You'll be gently guided to:

  • understand why your teenager acts the way they do
  • listen to different the ways your teenager communicates 
  • understand the link between our feelings and our behaviours
  • learn how to support teenagers when they experience intense feelings
  • support healthy emotional development
  • work through your own feelings about all the teenage messiness

Expect to:

  • take an active part
  • share your own experiences
  • play with ideas and strategies, in a group setting
  • walk away with insights, tools and ideas to try at home
  • feel recharged: knowing all care-givers struggle with difficult emotions

Previous attendees say:

"The course was completely practical. I went away able to make tangible changes in how I interact with my children in everyday challenging situations. Ania beautifully brings the material to life. She challenges you to practice using the tools in a safe environment so you can go home and really use them with your family." Sasha, Wellington
