Training and Educational Material is addressed to Parents of adolescents and to Educators. The educational material is consisted by two parts:
1. Parents and Teenagers
Students in secondary school, aged between 13 and 15, have been noticed to under perform or drop out of school. This coincides with behavioral problems both at school and at home. These problems are common in adolescence because of growing physical and emotional needs different to the needs in childhood.
Teenagers have more complex needs and parents should be aware of them in order to help teens to successfully continue their academic education.
In this part, stakeholders and target groups were advised by the following seminars:
♦ Among Parents
♦ Between Family and School
♦ Parents of Children to Parents of Teenagers
♦ The transition to a new school
♦ Do we parents rule at home?
