Two of Australia’s leading authors and educators on raising adolescents – Maggie Dent and Dannielle Miller – will explore the dynamic, confusing time of adolescence in today’s modern context.
Maggie will explore the unique changes that occur during adolescence, which explain why bedrooms go off, things get lost and communication can become a challenge. As a boy champion she will cover the ‘six packs’ aspect of the evening.
Dannielle is recognised as a passionate girl champion and she will explore this time of transition with information that will help you guide your adolescent girl towards adulthood with self-respect, assertiveness and self-esteem.
This seminar is excellent for parents, educators, youth workers, allied health professionals, doctors and anyone who gets to live with or work with adolescents.
It will be a positive, informative and inspiring evening to share with the adolescents in your life, to build greater understanding and connection.
