About the Courses
The Parenting Children Course & The Parenting Teenagers Course were developed by Nicky and Sila Lee, co-authors of The Marriage Book, The Parenting Book and The Marriage Book. They have been married for over thirty years, have four children, 3 grandchildren and are on the staff at Holy Trinity Brompton – the London church that started the Alpha course. They started running the courses at Holy Trinity Brompton in 1996.
Drawing on their own experience of bringing up four children and having talked to thousands of parents over the years on their parenting courses, Nicky and Sila Lee bring fresh insights and time-tested values to the task of parenting.

What is The Parenting Teenagers Course?
The Parenting Teenagers Course is for any parents, step-parents, or carers of children aged 11 – 18 years.
Why do the course?
- Parenting teenagers is harder than ever for most parents today
- No role we undertake in life is more important than parenting
We are the main influence on our teenagers’ future. Discovering we are not alone in the challenges we face and picking up ideas from other parents can make a huge difference. Meeting our teenagers’ deepest needs, setting healthy boundaries, helping to develop their emotional health and teaching them how to make good choices takes skill and dedication. Taking time to reflect on our end goal can help us to build our relationship with our teenagers now.
