The Parent & Teen Toolbox

Feb 9, 2021

Many parents are concerned about their child’s escalating emotions - notably anger.

However, this does not always mean that their child is ‘angry’.


It’s like treading on eggshells the whole time - and often it feels like it’s the child who holds the balance of power.


In this episode, we discuss how parents can work towards less conflict in the home - and aim for better more successful interactions.

We talk about the importance of reaching a win-win situation with our teenagers - and what we can do to achieve this.
The secret is getting your child to collaborate - so that they will co-operate!


We discuss Ruth’s experiences as a Headteacher in an inner-city primary school - where she introduced a Philosophy for Children Programme - which encouraged the pupils to understand the power of their own minds.

7 Tips to Support You in Successful Interaction with Your Teenager


Ruth Driscoll is The Life Liberator.

She leads those living with manipulative, abusive, controlling relationships into empowerment and freedom. Ruth’s training and programs offer clients impactful and practical insights into how to regain their lives with confidence, congruence, and dignity.

Before the bullying of an abusive partner caused a complete change to her circumstances, Ruth was the successful Headteacher of a challenging inner-city primary school.

She now uses her personal and professional experiences to provide a unique perspective on how it feels to live with an abusive, controlling partner and, crucially, how sufferers can not only release themselves effectively and safely from the grip of control but can continue their lives with the confidence and freedom of knowing this can never happen to them again.
Her training offers the skills of Elegant Assertiveness. Values of integrity and compassion are integral to the successful outcomes for Ruth’s clients. This philosophy underpins every aspect of Ruth’s training.

With a long career working with young people, Ruth supports parents dealing with difficulties and challenges with their children. This deep understanding and skill have been very important when the family set-up is fractured or children present particularly bewildering challenges.

Ruth is a mentor, trainer, and an award-winning professional public speaker. She has delivered a TEDx talk - ‘Don’t Let Fear Interfere.’

She is an International No.1 Best-Selling Author.
