- If you and your teen are constantly butting heads at the moment, head to The Karma Hub, in the Old Church, Rotherham Road, for a Tuning into Teens session, which aims to help you and your adolescent manage the many emotional challenges of this stage of life. Tuning in to Teens is a six-week parenting program, running one session per week for two hours. The program will teach you how to manage your own and your adolescent's emotions in ways that help you to remain close and keep communicating. By learning these skills, you are less likely to have as much conflict within your family and your teen is more likely to talk to you about the challenging issues they face.

- Get creative with a session of painting on the ice, at Ice Sheffield, on Coleridge Road, this Saturday. Try something new, painting straight on to the ice as you let your ideas run free.
