Raising teens can be challenging
Has family life become a bit of an emotional roller coaster ride since your child moved into adolescence? Is your relationship with your teenager not how you’d like it to be? Do you struggle to know how to respond when your teen is emotional, as your efforts to help them seem to lead to even more emotional volatility?
Raising Teens is a free six-week course that teaches parents a range of approaches and strategies to help build a strong relationship with their teen, respond better to daily challenges and increase family cooperation. Raising teens is based on emotion coaching, a way of parenting that focuses on emotions. Adolescence is a particularly emotional time and it is often emotion that is the driving force behind some of the more difficult, challenging and risky behaviours teenagers engage in.
Raising Teens is run by 4families (Relationships Australia), who have been operating in the Warren Blackwood area since October 2015. As well as offering workshops such as Raising Teens, 4families also provides individual support to families where children or teens are struggling. Parents can find out about individual family support by phoning 6164 0600.
In term one 4families will be running the workshop Raising Teens on Thursday evenings, 6.30pm – 8.30pm, at the Pemberton District High School. The course is free and runs for six weeks, starting on 2 March and running until the last week of term one. 4families will be running Raising Teens in Bridgetown in term two. In order to get the most out of the course we ask that parents commit to attending all six sessions from the outset, and one or both parents are welcome to attend. Please phone Melissa on 0438 520 733 for more information or to book your place as places are limited.

WA’s top Aboriginal public school students for 2016
Education and Aboriginal Affairs Minister Peter Collier announced Perth Modern School graduate Patrick Olofsson as the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) prize winner, and Comet Bay College graduate Elli Swinson as winner of the Vocational Education and Training (VET) prize.
"Both students have big plans for the future and I am delighted to reward the hard work that sees them on the path to achieving their goals," Mr Collier said.
"Elli has always had an interest in aeroplanes and aviation and she used her certificate course in aviation studies to get closer to her dream of jet-setting around the world.
"She plans to put her academic achievements and flight simulation experiences to good use as she pursues a career as a flight attendant.
"Elli is a determined student who achieved not only her WACE and a Certificate III in Aviation (flight operations), but also a Certificate II in Community Services and a Certificate II in Retail Services."
From aeroplanes to aerodynamics and beyond, the Minister said that Patrick Olofsson from Perth Modern School would use his outstanding ATAR to fulfil a love of astrophysics.
"Patrick received an exceptional ATAR of 96.6 and will study a Bachelor of Science majoring in astrophysics at Curtin University this year," Mr Collier said.
"He excelled in physics, as well as chemistry, English, food science and technology, and specialist mathematics."
