We are excited to launch our ‘Mountbatten Miniseries’ – a collection of short clips from Lorraine Lee BSc (Dipl. Child Psychology and Positive Parenting Practitioner) and other organisations that work to support parents and carers navigate the teenage years.
Parent Mental Health Day 2023
The theme for this year’s Parent Mental Health Day is #BuildFamilyResilience, focusing on how parents and carers can successfully adapt to challenging life situations, and deal with their own stress and anxiety, while navigating their family through difficult times.
National Online Safety prepared a special interview with their expert, Anna Bateman, where they discuss the important role that schools play in supporting the mental health of parents and carers, including how they can overcome common challenges to engagement and help to build family resilience. You can watch this short webinar below.
You can find out more about Lorraine's parent workshops and events in the attachments at the bottom of this page. Lorraine's website has a range of useful resources for parents to support them in navigating the tricky teenage years. Lorraine works across Hampshire and the UK to support parents and educators better understand the inner workings of the teenage mind, running INSET days, training, online workshops for parents and webinars you can access. Lorraine has worked with us to put together a series of clips sharing some great advice and top tips on a range of topics from bullying to helping your child manage their emotions and friendships.
