Adolescent Parenting Course (PPAP) - Mid and East Devon

The Parents Plus Adolescents Programme considers how parents/carers can connect with and build good relationships with their teenage children (aged 11-16), while also being firm and influential in their lives. 

Topics include:

  • Getting to know and connecting with your teenager.
  • Communicating positively and effectively.
  • Building your teenager’s self-esteem and confidence.
  • Negotiating rules and boundaries.
  • Teaching teenagers responsibility.
  • Positive discipline for teenagers.
  • Managing conflict.
  • Solving problems together.

Who should attend?

The course is free to attend and open to all parents and carers who live in Devon. Where possible we recommend that all parents/carers of the young person attend the course as we have found this helps them the most. You could attend separate courses if that works for you and/or please feel free to bring along another supportive family member. We will meet all parents/carers for an introductory meeting prior to the group starting.
