Handling Teenagers' Behaviour
As a parent, do you:
Find that your children can get you down at times?
Find they keep causing problems and that some of their behaviour is hard to control?
Find that you have to be constantly on at them and feel that you do nothing but nag them to behave?
Feel at times that nothing you do to control them has any effect?
Find that one particular behaviour makes you very cross, but you seem unable to stop it?
Sometimes feel a bit of a failure as a parent?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then don't be alarmed - most of us do at some time or another.
There is no such thing as a perfect parent!
There is no such thing as the perfect teenager!
If you would like to get hints, tips and practical skills to positively manage your teenager's behaviour, then look no further. We invite you to come along to a course designed for parents and carers.
The course is designed to help us to understand our teenagers' behaviour better, and is full of practical ways to help us be more effective in a job we are already doing. So who could attend a course? In truth, any parent or carer of a teenager. The course gives a fascinating insight into understanding and handling behaviour.
When: Thursday 18th August 05 - Thursday 6th October 05 7pm - 8.30pm
Where: R.S.R. Braeholm, 31 E. Montrose Street, Helensburgh. G84 7HR

Don't Suffer Alone
To all M.E. / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Sufferers
Do you feel isolated with nobody to turn to?
Do you feel as though nobody understands when you say you have M.E.?
Would you like to meet people in exactly the same position as you?
Well my name is Lisa and I have been an M.E. sufferer for over two years, I live in Helensburgh and I am looking to set up a support group for all M.E. sufferers, their family and loved ones. Somewhere where we can all share our experiences of the condition and provide the support for one another in an informal environment.
If you would be interested in joining the support group, please telephone Lisa on 01436 679649, leaving your contact details. The more we get, the better the support.

Choose Life is looking for more people in Helensburgh to become involved in their suicide prevention and self-harm work. Choose Life in Argyll and Bute is part of the Scottish Executive's national strategy to reduce the suicide rate in Scotland. The project, which is based in Helensburgh's West King Street, has now been running for over a year. A lot of activity has taken place with a particular emphasis on training. Current courses include the ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training), Dealing with Self-Harm and Promoting Mental Health.
Project worker Marie Park, said: "We hope that by offering training opportunities across Argyll and Bute, we will increase the capacity of local communities to tackle the issues of suicide and self-harm. We now have a very robust training programme and want to extend these opportunities as widely as possible. There are a small number of free places available on each course. We are also offering free one-two hour Suicide Talks and Self-Harm awareness raising sessions to any communities groups. We would love to come along and talk about the work of Choose Life and these vital issues."
Other activities have included funding for local groups, newsletter, production and distribution of information leaflets, community planning, seminars and media work. We are holding a Dealing with Self-Harm course in Braeholm on 15th November and would like to hear from anyone interested in attending.
If you would like to know more about Choose Life or have them come and talk to your group, please contact Marie Park on 01436 658824 or 17748 740975.
