As well as being a father of four (including three teenagers), Ande Foster has worked as a Youth Worker with hundreds of teenagers at Gympie Flexible Learning Centre. For more than eight years, Ande has delivered a music and media program for young people disengaged from mainstream education. A big part of the role is working through challenging situations with young people such as violence, mental health, drugs, family relationships, homelessness, and contact with Youth Justice.
Rolling with Teens
We have what we need to be great guardians for our teenagers and enjoy sharing the ride with them. Whether this ride is rough or quiet, sharing our experiences of guiding our teens will help to get fresh ideas about building great connections and navigating complex challenges. Let's have a robust, interactive, and open discussion on our challenges and successes in teen parenting. With a little luck we'll have some laughs, and come away with some inspiration to build stronger relationships and better support for the teens that we roll with.
