Tween Talk: Problem Solving without the DRAMA! (School Holiday Workshop)
Time & Location
About the Event
During puberty your pre-teen's emotions can become intense and unpredictable. Mood swings are common, and emotions such as frustration, confusion and anger can be the norm. This can lead to increased conflict and difficulty handling challenges and obstacles thrown their way.
This three hour workshop will help your tween explore these intense emotions and help them to understand the link between the emotional changes they experience and puberty. We will discuss the wide range of challenges and obstacles your tween faces day to day, and what sort of feelings and emotions these events bring to the surface. We will help your tween understand that feelings and emotions are normal, while highlighting that dealing with situations while emotional may not always elicit the best outcome. We will specifically teach your tween how to respond to situations, rather than be reactive, and provide them with the tools they need to accomplish this.
The workshop is fun and interactive, using a variety of activities and discussion.
