Maggie Dent “the queen of common sense” is presenting “adolescence unplugged”.
Today’s adolescents are experiencing more change, more rapidly than any previous generation. They are potentially living in a more risky, stressful world than ever seen before. Adolescents need adult allies to help them navigate the tricky waters of the teenage years – the art of guiding, and encouraging empowerment while strengthening self-esteem and personal autonomy is one that can be learned. This seminar explores the shift in raising children to raising adolescents, and what works and what won’t.
Research shows that adolescence is a time of confusion, massive change and serious risk. It is also a time of enormous potential in the development of new skills, knowledge and abilities. Tickets $25
