Parenting through the HSC/BAC
Exam stress can produce a high pressure environment the whole house goes through, and one which manifests in higher levels of anxiety and unusual behaviour. This fun, honest and practical presentation looks at how we can support parents to see this year as another life skills learning opportunity, rather than the 'be all and end all' we have come to believe it is. It is offered as a presentation for councils or schools to host as a support for the parents in their community challenged by parenting during the high pressure exam years around the HSC or the BAC.
Parenting and Cyber Safety
We cannot control and we cannot be there all the time so how do we manage the risk? How do we support our children in this unregulated environment? This presentation talks about what our responsibility is as we raise children in an online world.
Preparing for High School

This presentation will cover friendship groups, hormones and growth development, preparation for relationships, social media, parties and shaving!!
Building Healthy Relationships

This presentation is the introduction to a 6 week program which covers, breaking down what we call a healthy relationship, respectful communication, setting boundaries, on-line/off-line worlds, building understanding and taking it into practice.
