Parents of Secondary School students
Many parents report feeling unprepared and unsure about how they should support their children on the party scene. At what age should you no longer check in with the parents hosting the party? How do you navigate curfews? Should you allow your underage child to drink alcohol? Should you serve alcohol at a 16th birthday party?
Every family will have their own views on these issues, but by being aware of the potential risks surrounding teenage parties you can mitigate them more effectively. Educating yourself around the laws regarding alcohol, drugs and other risky behaviours, as well as the impact these can have on the developing teenage brain and body can help you clarify your expectations and enable better communication with your teenager.
Every student from Years 7 – 10, participates in our Health and Wellbeing curriculum where we provide both information and harm minimisation strategies to help your children make better-informed decisions in real-world situations. All classes are taught by Brighton Grammar staff which means that your children are being taught by people they know and trust, helping them feel comfortable to ask questions and ‘practise’ the skills they need to keep themselves safe.
On Monday 31 July from 7.00 – 8.00pm, we invite you to join Dr Ray Swann and Kristen Molloy from the Crowther Centre as well as George Neophytou, our Head of Health and Wellbeing for some practical strategies you can employ at home to help your teenager maximise his enjoyment, manage his behaviour and keep himself safe. While this webinar is aimed at parents of Secondary School boys, all are welcome.
