24-7 – Ltd Teens Seminar well received

24-7 – Ltd Teens Seminar well received:

The “Teens, Teens, Teens” Seminar was very well received by an enthusiastic and interactive group of participants at the Diabetes Auckland Building Seminar room on 24/1/08. Teen brain development, behavioural values, power struggles, substance use / abuse, and relationships were all covered in the 2.5 hour seminar.

It was great to see spontaneous discussions on these issues occur between participants, as they shared some of their story with the rest of the group throughout the presentation, and even after the event had concluded.

I am looking at running this seminar again in March 2008, and am also happy to deliver this seminar on-site for schools, parent groups, employers, church organisations, and the like.

A special thanks to Jenny Hale, and Tim & Nicky Cleary from Parents Inc for providing some excellent “Teen” reading resources, and an update about the upcoming launch of “The Parenting Place” in Greenlane, a virtual one-stop-shop for Parenting help, advice, and assistance.

Go to for Parents Inc resources, and to find out more about “The Parenting Place”).
