The Parent & Teen Toolbox

Sep 8, 2020

This is a solo episode by me.

If your child is off to University / College / Leaving Home … then I want you to stop for a minute. Pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself. You are about to launch your child as a fully-fledged young adult into the big wide world.

THIS is what you have been leading up to.
THIS is Success.


They say - “If you love them - then set them free.”

And the empty nest is the price for that success.

In this episode, I talk about :

Some of the emotions skills that your child needs ro equip them for this transition,
Some of the practical skills they need that will make this transition a bit easier,
How to approach your life at home now that the dynamics have changed, whether there are still kids at home or maybe you have the empty nest.
