Evening Content

In a media-saturated culture, how do we ensure young people are engaging in respectful relationships? What can we do to help them set and respect boundaries, and to support them as they navigate adolescence? Parents and carers are looking for well-informed, practical, and positive suggestions that help inspire and create the best kind of relationship between themselves and their children – communicative and collaborative. Our Parent Seminars are fun and informative, giving parents and carers the tools to strengthen their parent/child relationships. No parent or child shaming, no moralising or fearmongering; just jam-packed with informed advice, strategies, and up-to-date research. Delivered by Catherine Manning, CEO and Program Diector of SEED Workshops.

Recommended Audience: Parents and guardians of students in Year 6-12
