THE PARENT CODE

Strengthening Parent Connections

Parents joining together to share stories and to give each other support without judgement. Expertly facilitated discussions on new strategies for parenting adolescents, through seminars and workshops.

Building Parent Capacity and Community

Our Goals

The Parent Code aims to empower parents in their confidence and ability to parent, especially during adolescence. We aim to redress the imbalance of power and responsibility that parents feel, encouraging them to reconnect with their strengths and support systems, while providing them with new and necessary skills for parenting an adolescent in a new age.

Too often, parents feel ill-equipped to deal with ever increasing demands in a contemporary world of changing technologies and temptations. Building parental self-efficacy and capacity is an incredibly powerful way to protect our children (Family-School Community Partnership Bureau, 2012). Yet many parents feel isolated and disempowered, their sense of control at an all-time low.

The Parent Code provides an opportunity for parents to firstly develop greater insight and understanding of the challenges faced by today’s adolescents but more importantly allows parents insight and understanding into their OWN challenges.

Seminars & Workshops

Our workshop topics include:
1. Workshop Navigating adolescent development at school and in your home
2. Understanding the changing relationship between you, your daughter and her tribe
3. The why & how of setting boundaries
4. The art of Communication
