On Monday 21 November, Akeley Wood School will host a free open evening with the nationally recognised child behavioural speaker, Dick Moore.
He will deliver a high energy and motivational talk looking at the joys and wonders of adolescence, share his personal and professional experience and even identifying signs that can suggest mental health issues.
“Who claimed that adolescence is just a phase?” asks Mr Moore. “Who suggested that being a parent is easy? I am a parent of four often errant children and a headmaster for almost 23 years and what I have learned is invaluable for others to hear.”
Mr Moore has embarked upon a mission to discover more about what makes young people tick and what he could or should have done during the tough times! He has a passion for adolescent mental health and will be exploring what mental health is, offering thoughts about how young people think and about common issues which can arise when the going gets tough. Finally, he will offer some tongue-in-cheek tips for parenthood.
Dick has spoken at over 250 schools, universities and businesses in the UK and overseas, together with talks at major Conferences. He ran seminars at the HMC Conference and gave a TEDx talk in April 2015. He has also appeared on BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio 5 Live, various local BBC radio stations and ITN News with Mary Nightingale.
Following his talk, he will talk openly or privately with guests, he said: “Parents often find it difficult to take the first step towards finding help. I am always pleased to chat about the issues involved, or just simply provide a sympathetic, non-judgemental listening ear.”
