OPEN COMMUNITY EVENT - Adolescence Unplugged
An Evening with Maggie Dent
St Patrick's College is proudly hosting the “queen of common sense”, Maggie Dent, who has become one of Australia’s favourite parenting authors and
educators, with a particular interest in the early years, adolescence and resilience.
Adolescents need adult allies to help them navigate the tricky waters of the teenage years – the art of guiding, and encouraging empowerment while strengthening self-esteem and personal autonomy is one that can be learned. This seminar explores the shift in raising children to raising adolescents, and what works and what wont.
When: Monday 24 September, 6.30pm for 7pm
Where: Mary Sheil Centre (College Hall), St Patrick’s College for Girls
Cost: $10 - Tickets can be purchased via https://www.trybooking.com/WHBZ OR at the door on the night, however, we cannot guarantee a seat.
Light refreshments provided on the night.
She's back! St Patrick's College is once again hosting Madonna King. Her seminar will focus on Fathers and Daughters: Helping girls and their dads build unbreakable bonds - from the bestselling author of Being 14.
What do our girls think about their fathers? And what are fathers struggling with when it comes to their relationship with their daughters?
Award-winning journalist, author and commentator Madonna King has interviewed over five-hundred girls and many fathers, as well as leading psychologists, school principals, CEOs, police, guidance counsellors and neuroscientists, to get the answers all mothers, fathers and daughters need to know.
Exploring a father's role in his daughter's life from a daughter's perspective as well as the father's, Madonna examines the key issues that arise to help families navigate the sometimes very difficult moments: teen rebellion, discipline, sexual education, the impact of broken families, how much influence a father can/should have and what you can do to repair a broken relationship.
Tuesday 27 November from 6.30pm
“Our girls have the absolute right to be and do whatever they choose and we can equip them with the skills, knowledge and values to take that step forward into the world as articulate and participating members of society.”
