Who claimed that adolescence is just a phase? Who suggested that being a parent is easy? Dick Moore, the parent of four often errant children and a headmaster for almost 23 years, embarked upon a mission to discover more about what makes young people tick and what he could or should have done during the challenging times!
At this event, Moore will give a presentation to parents around the subject of adolescent mental health and wellbeing. He will be discussing the challenges faced by our teenagers today and strategies for dealing and coping with these challenges. The speaker has a passion for adolescent mental health and wellbeing and will be exploring how young people think, why adolescence is an especially vulnerable time, and about common issues which can arise when the going gets tough. Finally, he will offer some tongue-in-cheek tips for parenthood.
