It is up to you as a parent to decide which values, skills and behaviours you want to encourage in your child and to develop your own approach to dealing with your child’s behaviour. The Positive Parenting Program provides simple solutions to make parenting easier. Triple P Teen is a six-week course designed for parents dealing with the ups and downs of raising children ages 11 to 15.

This interactive workshop focuses on the important role of parents and caregivers in helping young children learn to manage stress.

Based on research from Kids Have Stress Too, this workshop offers practical tools for recognizing stress and supporting children to build resilience.

There are three different seminars in the Teen Triple P series: raising responsible teenagers, raising competent teenagers, and getting teenagers connected. These informal presentations tackle the most common issues for parents of children ages 12-16. Each seminar lasts 90 minutes and you can do one, two or all three in the series – although attending all three is highly recommended. The seminars target everyday concerns, such as how to encourage responsible behaviour, improve family relationships, deal with independence or manage problems at school or with friends. Call the MFRC at 250-363-2640 to register.
