I hope it's okay to put this here, and that it's something that can be added to if parents feel their links could be of some help
Here are some links that I thought may be useful for some parents:
One family: It's an organization driven to help those parenting alone. It offers supports for the parents, counselling and other helpful advice http://www.onefamily.ie/
Parentline: Offering tips and advice, also parenting courses www.parentline.ie/
Rainbows Ireland: This organization is designed to help parents, and children / teens of different age levels to deal with their feelings having lost a parent through death, separation / divorce. For tweens / teens. I know that the Rainbows programme (primary school level) runs on site in some schools, so I'm sure they work with secondary also, so I would inquire.
I think that its a very important link because it gives parents, children and teens alike an outlet where they can be around others like them and to express their feelings and worries. http://www.rainbowsireland.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=64&Itemid=182
Your drinking: This site has some 'recognize the signs' and what to do tips with young people and alcohol http://www.yourdrinking.ie/alcohol-and-young-people/
Cool school bully free: This is an Anti-Bullying programme and support service targeted at second level schools run by the HSE. It provides supports for the parents, teens and teachers. http://www.hse.ie/eng/services/Find_a_Service/Children_and_Family_Services/Child_and_Adolescent_Health/Coolschoolbullyfree/
The National Parents Council Post Primary division-
lots of information for parents of secondary school children-and always great to know that there are answers available to those questions which pose a problem for our children.
