Raising a teenager in today’s society can be simultaneously rewarding, exciting, and challenging.
During the often-trying teen years, it is not uncommon for parents to fear they may have failed in their child‐rearing responsibilities. But with the right approach, you can definitely build healthier relationships with your teen and guide them on the path to becoming valued contributors to the community.
The parenting classes I offer are private, individually tailored to meet your family’s needs. I will teach you about healthy attachment styles, and have you reflect on how you may have been influenced by the way you were parented. Together, we will create a timeline representing your child’s journey, and try to understand how the experiences your teen has gone through may have impacted your teen’s development, and current behavior.
We generally meet for six-sessions, during which time I assign a small reading assignment or video to watch before each session. In every meeting, we will examine the current and specific challenges you are facing with your teen, and I will coach you on how to better understand, and approach these challenges. I always encourage a style of interaction with your teen that honors your authority as a parent, while also accommodating your teen’s need for personal autonomy.
Let me teach you how to strengthen your relationship with your teen while increasing cooperation, harmony, and happiness within your family.
