The Insight Teen Advantage Seminar enables pre and early teen children acquire tools to navigate their teenage years. Wendy Churchill, our organiser, explains.

Why Insight Pre-Teen Seminar

Good parenting has no guarantee. We want our children to enjoy a safe, easy and rewarding life. Yet we all know it’s a perilous process.

In the UK, by most measures, young people’s lives are improving:

  • Drinking, smoking and drug-taking are down.
  • Teenage pregnancies are at the lowest level for nearly half a century.

Technology improvements make their and our lives closer, faster and better. Young people have opportunities their parents didn’t dream about.

Teenager’s Challenges

Yet, there is evidence that mental-health challenges grip young teenagers. Unlike their parents,  rather than acting out, many young people turn-in on themselves. e.g.:

  • In the past twenty-five years, teenage rates of depression and anxiety increased by 70%.
  • Over the last decade, the number of children and young people admitted to hospital with a psychiatric condition has doubled.

As a parent of a pre-teenager and a teenager, I know the daily challenges young people face. As an Insight Seminars’ graduate, in my work, personal and family life,  I  benefited greatly from the tools I learned. The tools helped me be a parent.

Insight Teen Seminar 2020

I’m excited:  my children will benefit from Insight’s pre-teen seminar.

On the 17th and 18th October 2020,  Insight will run a special pre-teen and early teen seminar in Walthamstow, London.

The seminar is fun and engaging. It equips children with Insight’s tools to use during their teen years. Children will learn about:

  • Making and keeping friends;
  • Standing up for themselves;
  • Dealing with wild emotions;
  • Peer pressure;
  • Self-confidence;  and
  • Much more, in a safe and inclusive environment.

David, a participant at a previous teen seminar said;

“Becoming a teen is not easy. Many things I faced I wasn’t really sure how to deal with.

Doing Insight really helped. It gave me a safe space to talk about my feelings and explain what I went through. It helped me grow and learn. I became happier with who I am and made so many friends.”

Good parenting has no guarantee. I believe Insight will help.
