Lifeline Community Care Sunshine Coast is once again hosting the popular four session course called Surviving Your Adolescents. The course, which has attracted a large number of dedicated parents with 12+ year olds, has been running on the Sunshine Coast since early 2009 and has been gaining momentum since its inception.

Surviving Your Adolescents will host its first round of parents for 2010 during February and March. Parents will have to opportunity to discuss with trained Family Counsellors how to deal with modern and traditional issues affecting their children.

Understanding your adolescents, understanding your job as a parent, figuring out what is worth reacting to and what is not, and learning how to hold difficult conversations more successfully are some of the more traditional issues that the course addresses. New to this course are the topics of internet use, cyber-bulling and mobile phones -- and this is where the police come into the equation.

A new feature of the upcoming course is the addition of Senior Constable Mark Readman, Crime Prevention Coordinator of the Sunshine Coast in the final class, who will be presenting DVDs on and talking about internet safety, cyber bullying, sexting, ID fraud and other concerns that could affect our children.

The course starts on 23rd February and runs for four weeks each Tuesday (23/02/10, 02/03/10, 09/03/10, and 16/03/10) from 5:15-7:30 p.m.. The final course with Constable Readman is on the 16th March. Parents are expected to attend each course and a gold coin is required for each class to help support the light supper provided. Lifeline asks that you arrange your own childcare.

For more information or to book please contact Lifeline on 5409 2600. Please register your interest for Surviving Your Adolescents by 15th February 2010.
