Bringing up children in today’s world is full of challenges. We’ve all got our strategies. This is a chance to share those strategies and learn from other parents/guardians.
In a series of workshops, members of the faculty at Renaissance College will work with parents and guardians to develop a deeper understanding of the children in our care. The sessions will seek to address the concerns of 21st Century parents.
The aim of the first session is to enhance understanding of what the concerns and preoccupations are for our children. Engaging in a dialogue with each other, we’ll frame the world that our children are living in today to help us understand how to relate to them. We’ll use the learning to build future sessions targeted to address the challenges parents/guardians are facing.

Adolescence is a time of big social changes, emotional changes and changes in relationships. A recent survey conducted by the Hong Kong Playground Association last month, asked 3,177 young people, aged six to 24, showed that 31.6% of participants suffered from mild to extremely severe stress, while 38.7% had moderate to extreme anxiety. This presentation focuses on prevention and on what modern psychological science says parents can do to build happy and resilient young people.
Presented by Australia’s highest profile child and adolescent psychologist, Dr Michael Carr-Gregg this entertaining and informative session will equip parents with the skills, knowledge and evidence based strategies to help young people successfully tackle the developmental tasks of adolescence and to put in place the protective factors that reduced the chances of them developing any of the high prevalence disorders.
