“The amazing, tumultuous, wild, wonderful, teenage brain” - this is how neuroscientists describe the teenage brain but how does it feel to be a teenager, and even more importantly for us - what does it mean to be a parent of a teenager in 2020? Adolescence actually begins before the teen years and ends in the mid 20s so it’s no wonder we feel that our children become ’teenagers’ earlier and earlier or that we wonder if they will ever ‘grow up’!
Our children are experiencing this phase of their lives in an era very different from ours, with unique challenges and opportunities - knowing what their developmental needs are and how to respond to the behaviours we see is critical in teaching them to be healthy, whole hearted adults who know how to give back to the world as well as be part of it.
Neuroscience tells us a lot but putting this theory into practice in your home, with your children, in your own way is not something you can learn easily from a book that is written to provide general understanding. This workshop allows groups of parents to learn together, to give and receive support and to leave with a clear idea of how they can integrate both neuroscience and mindfulness into their families’ life.
Our workshop will run online for four consecutive weeks starting August 4th, from 2pm to 4pm. If you are parent who has attended this workshop before you are welcome to come back and refresh any session for free - please just let Alfie know.
