The Advertiser’s Lauren Novak spoke to Centacare this week about young people directing violence towards their family.

Director Dale West has raised the issue in an opinion editorial, saying it is the little-talked about aspect of family violence putting parents at risk in their homes each day.

Centacare is seeing increasing demand for support from parents of children aged between eight and 25 who constantly challenge authority and discipline.

Through our free eight-week course, Who’s in Charge, we help parents identify what will motivate their children to make changes, and useful strategies to curb violent behaviour.

For more information about Who’s in Charge and to access counselling support, please phone Centacare 8215 6700.
