Frame Initiatives offers a range of interactive presentations for student groups, staff and parents. All of our presentations are one period in duration and are accompanied by a follow up lesson plan that can be delivered by teachers. We are able to present to split male and female groups at the same time using two presenters to make for easier scheduling.
This series equips Young Women with knowledge of safe and respectful relationships and strategies to stay safe for life.

Parents and personalities
This presentation introduces the well-known D.I.S.C model to parents, which provides a framework for understanding personalities. This fun and engaging presentation helps parents to identify their own personality style and the personality style of their child. This knowledge points to common strength and struggles for each relationship in the family, and suggests strategies for building healthy relationships between personalities.
Who's in charge?
Parental authority can sometimes have a ‘do it my way or else’ vibe about it. The question is, “How does a parent stay in charge while positively building the parent-teen relationship?” Many parents feel torn between remaining in charge and dominating the relationship, or giving in to the teen’s wishes to maintain a friendly relationship. There is another way. Parents can become aware of their default parenting style and then choose different approaches with their teen. This presentation equips parents with a parenting style that is honouring for both the parent and teen.
Getting great communication
When parents complain that their child is not listening to them, the focus is usually on how to change the child. This presentation focuses on the communication of the parent, empowering them to transform the communication game.
the home of peace
While no family will be free of conflict, the ability to have conflict in constructive ways is crucial for growing peacefulness in the home and training children to raise issues that matter deeply to them. Parental reactions to conflict shape how the conflict will play out for good or bad. This presentation looks at the ways in which parents can become more aware of their own triggers and how they feed conflict in the family. It aims to equip parents with a framework for standing their ground on principles and values while maintain stable emotions.
Yes! It is possible to have children who take responsibility. But it does not happen on its own. Teens need to be guided toward becoming responsible people. This presentation focuses on building responsibility and obedience.
It is difficult to stay on top of social and technological trends in our culture. The rate of change is lightning fast. By staying informed of current issues such as social media, sexting, pornography and more, parents can lead constructive conversations with their kids to help them make informed choices and stay safe for life. This presentation aims to help parents to understand the social and technological issues facing their kids and equips them with tools to hold constructive conversations on sensitive issues.
