Parenting A Struggling Teen/Young Adult Program
Are you at a total lose on how to motivate your child?
Do they lack focus and follow through?
Are you sick and tired of all the excuses?
Do they shut out when you offer to help?
Do you see them hurting and don’t know what to do?
Did your parenting techniques seem to be working in the early years and now they don’t?
Were you determined to be the “perfect” parent to compensate for a less than perfect childhood?
When my kids became teens they started pushing back and having a mind of their own.
I thought I would be ready, but I really wasn’t.
Shouldn’t I be monitoring their homework?
Restricting their spending?
Having a say in who they spent time with?
Telling them the “rules” to a good life?
I struggled between trying to be what I thought the perfect parent should be and letting them live their own life.
I eventually realized if I wanted my boys to grow up to be independent and responsible men, I had to learn how to shift my parenting style and get them on board.
Get Help If You Are Struggling With Your Teen
There are lots of therapists and programs that promise to “fix” your teen without your involvement – it simply doesn’t work.
What does work is when you both are in agreement and on the same page.
There needs to be collaboration and commitments established between you and your teen.
That is where I come in as an objective third party to bridge that gap.
The Process Includes:
1. A complete assessment to determine what is working so we can build on that and what needs to be corrected and worked on.
2. Setting up clear expectations and goals that your teen buys into so that don’t have constantly monitor or nag them.
3. Integrating and aligning the family’s values so you feel confident your teen is headed in the right direction.
4. Negotiating agreed upon consequences for lack of performance.
5. Assisting you to shift from managing and overseeing everything they are doing to allowing them to step up and follow through on their agreed commitments.
6. Helping them create systems and strategies to remain focused and stay on task.
7. Getting them motivated so they are self-driven to act on their own.
8. Ongoing accountability by me, so you can step back and be in a supportive, loving role.
The Program Features:
A Personal Exploration Survey – an invaluable tool that starts the process and gets you deeply thinking about your current situation. Yours and your child’s answers give me a clear picture of the problem areas, what is currently going on and gives us a foundation to launch from.
12 (90 minute) Coaching Sessions – in person or over the phone/skype, where we get right to work on your core issues. You’ll learn strategies to quickly shift the dynamics of your relationship and tools you can use after our work together is done.
12 Session Recordings – get an audio recording of each of your sessions. By relistening and reviewing, you may pick up something new and hear yourself shift and change.
Weekly Action Plan aka Homework – to help solidify what we discussed and to help you start incorporating the tools into your life.
Handouts/Worksheets – of the tools you will be learning in your session and for your future reference.
Numerous Resources – worksheets, articles, books and other resources that will enhance our work together.
Full Access Via Email or Text – because sometimes you just need a little redirection or perspective.
Full transparency, Authenticity and Openness – gain from my personal life and experiences, because I’ve been where you are. I know how to get you from where you are to where you want to be.
Is This Right For Me?
Great question. Before you invest in anything, we’ll get to know each other and explore whether we’re a good fit. That starts when you complete this short exploratory questionnaire.
When I receive it, I’ll send you a link to schedule your 60 minute Complimentary Clarity Session. During that hour I’ll help you get clear on where you are at, where you want to be and your best next steps.
After your Clarity Session, we will know if we are a good fit and if you’re excited to move forward.
