Parenting Tip of the Month

Dealing with Emotions

Sometimes when things don’t go their way teenagers can become quite emotional. If you notice your teenager is upset you can help them by:

  • Stop what you are doing and pay attention
  • Listen and stay silent
  • Summarise what you heard and check that you’ve got it right
  • Acknowledge and name the feeling or emotion
  • Reassure your teenager that it’s okay to feel this way
  • Don’t try and solve the problem yet – allow time for everyone to calm down first

WSC Lantern Workshop Progress

WSC Lantern Workshop Progress

The second Workshop to make our dragon saw a flurry of activity. It was great to see the parts taking shape and our dragon growing by the minutes, complete with LED lights attached to his enormous head. Our dragon has been tentatively named Elemental, representing his link to the Chinese elements. Work started on the scales which will be made of soft plastic in a range of colours that will be attached to the rattan frame. Our work continues over the next few weeks.
