What you will learn

In six sessions, typically run over six weeks, the Teen years Toolbox will support you on your journey of letting go and handing over some of the controls as your young person learns to fly solo.  Although the teen years can be challenging, they can also be some of the best years of your life – and theirs! Toolbox covers a range of topics, including the importance of love and connection, different parenting styles, understanding your child and their big feelings, discipline, boundaries and lots more.

This course is a newer version of our Tweens and Teens Toolbox course.  Please note that this course is aimed specifically at parents of children 13 – 18 years.

Topics covered

Session 1             Love is the foundation
Session 2             Parents
Session 3             Stronger, deeper, closer
Session 4             Heart-led parenting
Session 5             Discipline without shouting, force or fluster
Session 6             Putting it all together

Cost and payment

The cost is $75 per person or $110 per couple. However, our desire is that cost would never be a barrier, and we’d still love you to join us if you’re unable to contribute in this way. There are many other valuable ways to contribute – like bringing a cake to share, or helping pack up. Get in touch, and we’ll get you booked in.


This is a closed course for parents of children attending Macleans College only.
