Event Details

Join parenting coach Judy Reith and family therapist Sarah Rose for advice on how to communicate and build a better relationship with your teenager.

Parenting teenagers is probably the hardest and most important job we ever take on. But many parents may come to feel stuck, worried and powerless to deal with teenage behaviour, especially in the modern world, where technology has evolved at breakneck speed.

Social media, gaming, friends and school issues, stressful family arguments with no-one listening, disagreements with your partner over how to set rules and stick to them these are all common issues those living with teenagers are likely to face. We drown in expectations to produce bright, confident children from happy families, leading to stress and feelings of guilt.

Does parenting teenagers need to be so difficult? Whether you’re a parent whose child is about to reach puberty or you’ve been struggling with bringing up a teenager for a while, parenting coach Judy Reith and family therapist Sarah Rose will help you feel more in control, calmer and regain the joy of being a parent.

Judy and Sarah’s non-judgmental, friendly approach, their extensive knowledge of training and combined personal experience of raising five teenagers has helped thousands of parents to have a better life with their teens.

Our tutors will offer tips and tools on dealing with everyday parenting problems as well as share advice on how to manage challenging behaviour. During the evening, you will have a chance to learn with – and from – other parents and feel supported and understood in a safe, encouraging environment. You will leave with a clearer understanding of your role as a parent and your responsibilities towards your teen, as well as tools to build a better relationship with them.


  • The most common issues parents face with teenagers

  • What’s happening to your teen – and to you – as you navigate these turbulent years

  • Dealing with feelings, self-esteem, communication and setting boundaries

  • Building a better relationship

  • Take-home tools and proven strategies to deal with teen behaviour
