Do you find it hard to connect with your kids?

September 6, 2018

For parents these days it can be difficult connecting with your young people.

Whether it’s competing with screen time or social media, or simply feeling like your kids are speaking a foreign language answering in emojis, abbreviations and community lingo – you’re an “eternal newie” referring to 30% of adults who feel like they don’t get technology.

Asking your child how school was today and getting “Gucci”(meaning something good or cool) can leave parents in the dark.

Our 6 week Tuning into Kids and Tuning into Teens courses help parents to communicate more effectively, understand your teenager or child better, help your children develop emotional intelligence, manage emotions and offer some tips on how to prevent some common behavioural problems.

The technological age has thrown parents some additional curve balls to navigate with the inclusion of social media, online gaming and cybersafety.

We provide information from the eSafety Commission to inform parents on how to keep their children safe online, and practical tips to monitor screen time, and social media usage.

To register your interest in attending one of our programs please contact our Waitara Family Centre on (02) 9488 2400 or click here for more information.
