Unlocking the Mysteries of the Teenage Mind

Special Event for Parents of Teens to be hosted by Bryanston School

Raising a teenager can be one of the scariest and most daunting tasks any parent will ever face. The challenges and pressures of parenting in the 21st century can leave parents feeling isolated and unsure of themselves.

On June 6, Bryanston School is hosting a one-of-a-kind event, ‘21st Century Parenting –Inspired thinking for the modern parent,’ designed to provide parents with the knowledge and practical advice they need to navigate the complexities of parenting in the modern age.

Featuring a panel of experts in child psychology, mental health, social and technological influences, behavioural science, nutrition, and more, this event promises to explode common misconceptions and equip parents with the tools they need to help their children thrive throughout their teenage years.

Bryanston has partnered with The Wellbeing Hub from Teen Tips for the event and has secured involvement from a variety of experts from all over the UK. From parenting experts Alicia Drummond and Dr Maryhan to sexism and gender equality specialists Michael Conroy and Natasha Eeles, attendees will have access to a wealth of knowledge on topics ranging from self-harm and gambling to drugs and bullying.

Dr Preetpal Bachra, Deputy Head of Pupil Development and Wellbeing at Bryanston, says,“We’re thrilled to have secured the direct involvement of so many experts from so many fields as it will ensure the day covers all conceivable topics and sheds a much-needed light on even those very tricky areas that can be so difficult for a parent to talk about with their child.

“As parents, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and alone in the challenges of raising a teenager.But events like the ‘21st Century Parenting’ provide a unique opportunity to break the cycle of isolation and come together as a community of parents, ready to face the challenges of parenting now and in the future.”

The 21st Century parenting event is being held immediately prior to Bryanston’s 2023 Education Summit for educationalists and teaching professionals. Regularly attracting hundreds of delegates, the Summit provides a day of inspirational talks and discussions on topical issues and education priorities for teachers and other educationalists from all over southern England.
