STOP Supportive Programme for Parents of Teens

STOP is an effective parenting course for parents and/or careers of young people aged 10 - 16. It is a 10-week step-by-step programme that runs for 2 hours per week.

Starting from 1st May 2019 - 10th July 2019
(excluding half term week 29/5/19)
6:30 - 8:30 pm

Kiln Road, Benfleet,
Essex, SS7 1BU

The course covers a range of topics including:

  • how to make changes
  • teen development
  • using praise and encouragement
  • problem solving
  • setting limits

This will give parents a greater understanding of their young person and strategies to help manage situations which often occur during the ‘teens’.

This course has been sponsored by the Early Help Service, which means we can offer places free of charge (normally £620 per parent) 

Testimonial from a parent who attended the course:

“Thank you for all your help. I feel a different person and value my relationship with my teenager on a different level now. I can’t thank you enough for being there for me. I would highly recommend this group to anyone.”
