Do you sometimes feel like a stranger in your teenager’s life? The transition from primary to secondary school often sees us losing touch with our network of ‘playground parents’, and when our young people go to college, it can be impossible to find out exactly what is going on in their world. Add to this the stresses and challenges of the teenage years and it’s difficult to know how to help or where to turn.
The Life Tutor has a solution! How would it feel to know that there is a group of likeminded parents who have your back? Not just a support group, but a vibrant community guided by an education professional who can give you a unique insight into that seemingly closed world?
The Life Tutor’s series of online courses takes you through the transition points and thorny areas that test every family, with expert advice, fun challenges and ways to reconnect with your teen so that YOU can guide them effectively through their educational journey. Each programme is designed to link you up with people across the UK who are at a similar stage with their own children. This means you will have plenty of opportunities to share successes, ask, “Is this normal?” or just have a rant if you need to! If groups aren’t your thing, you can get plenty from just following The Life Tutor’s tips and suggestions with your young person.
Now that Exam Season is done, we’ve moved on from all things revision and stressbusting – phew! It’s the summer holidays, so we can all sit back and relax, right? Well maybe not if your young person has a big transition coming up. If you need a guiding hand to help your child get started in sixth form or college, I’ve got something perfect lined up for you.
In September, we’ll be moving on to look at university applications. What’s the right choice for your child? Who should consider alternatives? How do you put together a successful application? It’s all covered in Get to Uni, along with individual help to craft the perfect personal statement. Sign up to be the first to hear when places are released.
Lots more exciting stuff is planned for the next year, but I’d love to hear what you’re worried about! What are the stages you’re not looking forward to? What are you finding confusing? Let me know in the comments or by email and you may find a programme developed especially for you!
Does your school or community group need The Life Tutor’s expertise? As an experienced speaker and trainer, I can deliver ‘live’ talks, Q & As or interactive workshops for parents and carers in your local area – just contact me to discuss your requirements. I can take care of publicity and bookings for you if needed, too.
