‘Parents Plus’

A Free of Charge Course for Parents of Teenagers

This 6 week course is open to all parents and guardians of 12 – 17 year olds from Tallaght. It is run by Suzanne Lindsay from Foróige, Lisa O’ Rourke from Respond and Mary O’Brien from Meitheal. It’s free of charge.

The Parents Plus Course looks at things parents can do to:   

  • Build closer and more enjoyable relationships with Teens
  • Help Teens grow up to be happy, have good self-esteem, be responsible and reach their full potential in life
  • Give Teens practical things they can do to deal with things like anxiety, stress, anger, bullying and peer pressure 
  • Encourage positive communication in the family so that:

Teens are much more likely to talk to their parents about what is going on for them.

There is less arguments and stress as everyone gets into the habit of working out their problems and disagreements in a calmer way.

  • Use simple techniques that keep parents calm and in control when setting boundaries, managing behaviour and keeping their Teens on track.
