Parent support & coaching

It is not uncommon for parents to sometimes scratch their heads when it comes to effectively communicating and engaging with their growing teen. Formulating a philosophy about discipline, determining a good disciplinary approach and consistently executing sound teaching strategies are all part of the coaching process; the goal is to have a positive, healthy relationship with your teen while teaching and guiding them to make sound, noble decisions. When parents meet with teen resistance, I urge them to reevaluate their relationship, resist personalization, be open to alternative strategies, continue demonstration of unconditional love, clarify boundaries and expectations, model consistently, seek support, practice realistic acceptance, and remain steadfastly optimistic...always believing the best in and for their children.
