Often we are told that these challenges (and more) are ‘normal’ for a ‘moody’, ‘hormonal’ teenager, and that these years are a test of endurance for us parents.
But what if we are concerned that our pre-teens and teens are really struggling, and we want to know better how to truly help and support them?
What if I told you that you are not alone with your worries, that difficult periods are expected during the pre-teen and teen years which are different to younger years they are not necessarily to be ignored or ‘put up with’.
Many parents blame themselves for things they have or haven’t done, we spend so much time searching around for the reasons why our teenagers may be feeling or acting the way they do.
There is no gain from blame and I want you to know that we are all doing our absolute best and managing the situations as they arise the best way we know how.
However, sometimes we do need some extra support, guidance and understanding, and that’s where I come in
I can help by offering a safe, non-judgemental space for you to share your concerns and worries, and help you understand what may be going on for your teenager.
Imagine being a calmer, more confident parent feeling more equipped to deal with the volatility and unexpectedness which the teenage years can bring.
Book a 30 minute call with me to create some space to talk through your concerns and learn more about the strategies, tools and techniques which I use to support you and the turbulent teenage years to help you feel calmer and more in control.
It all starts by you getting in touch and letting me know that you or your teenager needs my help.
We have a free, 30 minute chat where I can explain more about the process and you can ask any questions and then, when you or your teen are ready, we can get started together.
