Odyssey Parenting Your Teen Programme

The Odyssey Parenting Your Teen Programme was created by Parenting NI as we recognised that there were very few programmes for parents of teenagers. The programme helps parents with the challenges of parenting adolescents.  It is delivered to groups of 10-12 parents over 8 x 2-hour sessions, covering topics such as teen development, rules and consequences, problem solving and how to be an authoritative parent, proven as the most effective parenting style.  We offer a specialist Train the Trainers course and commissioning opportunities.






The Train the Trainer course enables practitioners to deliver the Odyssey, Parenting Your Teen Programme to parents in their own setting. The programme has been evaluated by Queen’s University, Belfast and is proven to consistently produce positive results in improving parent/teen relationships.

  • Our focus is on achieving the best outcomes for all children and young people through empowering parents and building on their strengths.
  • We promote the value in prevention and early intervention.
  • All trainers are qualified, experienced and are continually monitored to comply with quality assurance standards in order to ensure programme.
