If you have tried everything to solve the problems your teenager is experiencing but they aren’t getting any better, it’s not your fault. Being a parent is not easy and trying to understand your teenager’s psychology without professional help is difficult.
If you want a way to help your child that really works, you have come to the right place, so keep reading.
Bringing up children, especially teenagers, is a difficult task and sometimes seems unmanageable.
As parents, we are not introduced to this special art of child rearing before our kids are born.
Regardless of your own problems and struggles, as a parent you are perpetually forced to make decisions immediately, here and now. There is little time for rehearsal when it comes to parenting!
A parent works under pressure, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with no weekends off or holidays – no wonder it can feel so stressful!
But I can tell you now that it doesn’t have to be this way!
If you learn, as a family, how to communicate well and deal with problems, your teenager and your whole family will transform.
Parents often contact me asking what they should do with their child. The first step is to realise that the only way to solve the problem is to involve not just your child, but the whole family.
This is why it’s my view that a successful series of consultations relies on not just the child, but also the family surrounding and supporting them. Only with this holistic approach of involving your entire family will your teenager emerge fully confident in himself or herself.
In order to help a teenager overcome their difficult issues and equip them with fundamental life skills, my sessions are attended by: the teenager, mother, father, and brothers and sisters. These family members are the most important people in the teen’s life, they are their support structure and will help the teenager on a daily basis after sessions with me.
My 20 years of experience have taught me that this is the only approach that really works and results in a happy, healthy and confident teenager.
