Michael Carr-Gregg on Parenting Adolescents


Body image, bullying, cyber-safety, school exams, risk-taking, identity, authority, drugs and alcohol … the list of pressures teenagers face is endless. And let’s face it, it’s not an easy time for parents either. But rest assured: there are tools we can implement to make a difference in the health and well-being of young people.

Renowned child and adolescent psychologist Michael Carr-Gregg takes a close look at adolescent mental health in Australia today, and outlines the strategies parents can implement to help families through these often-tricky years.


Sometimes there’s nothing better than a good rant. Every Thursday, the Wheeler Centre hosts an old-fashioned Speakers’ Corner in the middle of the city, where writers and thinkers can have their say on the topics that won’t let them sleep at night.

Featuring some of our most compelling voices across just about every sector of human endeavour you can imagine, the themes dominating Lunchbox/Soapbox are proudly idiosyncratic. BYO lunch. Ideas provided.
