Eventdescription

It’s never been particularly easy being young in an old world, but today's young people have to contend with things previous generations could never have even dreamed of. In this entertaining evening, Nigel reveals why the world is so hard to navigate, and how you can help your kids to figure out what their place is in all of it. Whether it’s issues like anxiety, depression, and stress, or the truth about screen time, or relationships, or how to plan for a career in a world where careers are also changing at a dizzying pace, there’s a lot our young people have to deal with. The good news is that even though the issues are complex, the way forward is often surprisingly simple. 


Doors open 6.45pm for a 7.30pm start.

Please note change of venue to Harbourside Church, 48 Esmonde Road, Takapuna.
