It’s tough being a teen.
Developmentally, you want to start making your own choices, but you are still dependent upon your parents. Then there’s the competition of trying to fit in by having material possessions that your peers may have, which your parents don’t see the point of. Not to mention the expectations of school and grades that you don’t yet see the value of.
Add to that the confusing social dance… You want your friends to like you, but there are so many hoops to jump through to maintain your social status, and the rules are always changing. This doesn’t even address the fact that if you walk to the beat of a different drummer, the complexity feels daunting.
Teen boys have a different challenge than girls in that their feelings aren’t often talked about. Being stoic is often the benchmark of becoming a man. So many boys suffer in silence, not knowing how to handle their pain or ask for help. If your teen son is struggling, I can assess the situation and offer you my best recommendations for helping him.
I offer a FREE Initial Parent Consultation to confirm that I am a good match for your family. During this time, I will do a thorough assessment of the situation to give you my most helpful recommendations. You will get an immediate and direct experience of the value I provide.
