Alicia Drummond of Teen Tips ran a workshop entitled “Parenting Teens” for parents.   Alicia is a counsellor and author of “Every Teenager needs a Parrot” and aims to help parents, teachers and teenagers to understand all aspects of being a teenager in the 21st Century.The  workshop explored the physical, emotional and cognitive changes that occur during adolescence and how these might impact behaviour. Alicia offered  practical and achievable strategies to  help parents create an environment  which promotes good emotional health and to assist their teenagers to prepare for the adult world.
Alicia  will return to Brambletye in March to run a workshop aimed specifically at a Father’s role in parenting teens.
