Supporting Teenager Courses
We provide all parents and carers with the opportunity to attend this free course to help their daughters manage the challenges of their teenage years.
The course focuses on:
- the development of identity and self-image during the change to adulthood
- approaches to positive discipline and boundary setting
The course is run by our own Parent Support Advisor, Nina Buchanan, and we receive consistently excellent feedback from parents and carers:
“The session today was full of power, good energy and feelings. I think people who participated were extremely open about sharing their issues and also offering possible solutions. Big thank you, Nina and LSU.”
“It was a brilliant course and I learnt so much. I am so glad I came today. It will surely help me a lot in the future.”
Please contact Nina Buchanan, via the school, or email email@example.com to book a place on the programme.
Courses are free to all parents and carers of pupils at La Sainte Union.
