Tuning into kids and teens
In this program parents from diverse cultural backgrounds learn new ways to parent, in particular how to recognise, understand and respond to their children’s emotions. This approach helps the child to manage their emotions.
This program helps parents to understand their child’s big emotions, such as anger, sadness and anxiety, and make their relationship with their child stronger.
They learn about new ways to parent in a new country, and how to assist their child to become a better learner at school.
This is a free program for parents. Child care and interpreters can be organised, if required.
