Dreaded teenage years are ripe
for family conflict, but a Toolbox
course at Darfield High can help
The teen years pose some of
the most difficult challenges
for families. Teenagers,
dealing with hormone
changes and an ever-complex
world, may feel that no one
can understand their feelings,
As a result, they may feel
angry, alone and confused,
while facing complicated
issues about identity, peers,
sexual behaviour, drinking
Parents may be frustrated
and angry that their teen
seems to no longer respond
to parental authority.
Methods of discipline that
worked well in earlier years
may no longer have an effect.
Parents may feel frightened
and helpless about the
choices their teen is making.
As a result, the teen years
are ripe for family conflict.
On Tuesday, March 12,
from 7pm till 9pm, Darfield
High School hosts the Tweens
and Teens Toolbox -- a series
of six sessions designed to
give you tools to equip your
teenager with a strong sense
of self, as well as
resourcefulness, and to help
you in your journey of letting
go and handing over some of
the controls as your young
person learns to fly solo.
Session 1: Atmosphere.
Session 2: Boundaries.
Session 3: Communication.
Session 4: Discipline.
Session 5: Self-esteem.
Session 6: Future pathways.
inevitable about the arrival of
the teenage years.
You've always known
they'll hit one day, but there's
something daunting about
discovering you've got a
teenager in the house.
This series of sessions will
help give you and your
teenager strategies for
dealing with problems.
Yes, it does address
potential issues, but it is
hoped you will discover that
teenagers are actually 'okay';
in fact, this stage of the
parenting journey can be
really very enjoyable.
The repeat event will occur
every Tuesday until April 16.
