Criticism in Families

Parents can be full of helpful advice, yet it can get heard by adolescents as criticism. Listen to Gabe, Annette and Lucy for some insights into how we develop the way we hear words and how intention and reception can be very different. This two part series is an incredible opportunity to consider the impact of the way we communicate in relationships, in our families. Gabrielle Caplice, Annette Baker and Lucy Dahill consider what criticism looks, sounds and feels like and how that plays out for children, teens and adults alike.


Have you ever found the 'rule book' doesn't fit your child or family. So did we. So we decided to make a website that offered practical skills to build a way of living that could be responsive to whatever might present itself in family life.

That way rather than needing a 'rule book' there is a sense of being equipped to deal with whatever situation is in front of you.
