Getting Teenagers to Cooperate
There are many different views on how parent a teenager, lots of parents experience their teenagers becoming less cooperative during the teenage years, for example would you ever find your teenager refusing to do as they are asked, or that they answer you back?? Parents can find this upsetting & this can lead to lots of arguments between parents & teenagers, or do you feel that you lost control of your teenager behaviour. It is normal for teenagers to want to develop their own ideas & become more independent as they become young adults. Outside influences also start to play a more important role in their lives, such as their friends, social media, etc. When you have a good relationship with your teenager, they are more likely to co-operate with you/do as you ask. Teenagers still need limits & boundaries, parents may need to change their approach, you as a parent need to develop your own ways of dealing with your teenager’s behaviour. Teen Triple P has been helpful for many parents and may give useful ideas to help you meet the challenges of raising teenagers
So what is this workshop all about
The ‘getting your teenager to cooperate’ workshop lasts two hours ,usually will be between 5 to 10 parents who would like ideas to encourage your teenager to be more cooperative, tips to improve your relationship with your teenager and how to manage difficult behaviour. The tips and strategies been proven to work with families. The workshop will be relaxed and informal; you can talk as much or as little as you want. We will watch some video clips of common parenting issues, have a chat about these, share some tips and ideas and you will choose the strategies you feel will work for your family. You will get a workbook to bring home.
Parents who have attended this workshop have told us things like:
“Myself & my teenager are getting along better now”

“My teenager is helping out a lot more at home”
