Evening Parenting Seminar: Coping with your Children’s Mental Health
September 24 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£10
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!
Did you know that 10% of young people are suffering from a diagnosable mental health disorder today? Not only does this mean that a vast number of young people are unhappy, but also that they are under performing at school, college and in the early stages of their careers. The consequences for families, schools and employers are dire.
Dick 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…..
Dick has spoken at over 300 schools, universities, businesses and conferences both in the UK and overseas. He gave a TEDx talk in April 2015 and a Head Talk earlier this year. He has also appeared on BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio 5 Live, various local BBC radio stations and ITN News with Mary Nightingale.
