Kaipātiki Parent Pack

For parents and caregivers with children on the threshold of secondary school with all the challenges, new experiences, pressures and temptations that lie ahead.

We are pleased to present you with this new edition of the “Parent Pack”. This resource is for parents with children on the threshold of, or are currently at, secondary school – with all the challenges, new experiences, pressures and temptations that involves.
The “Parent Pack” was first developed in 1997 and has been a well respected resource each year since giving parents tools to help negotiate the teenage years, particularly the minefield of alcohol and drugs and the ever changing issues of their relationship with adolescent children.

Happy Parenting… the Kaipatiki Team
