The Parent & Teen Toolbox


May 25, 2021

As our children are growing up, we often enlist the support of Piano Teachers and Swimming Teachers … experts who can teach our children the new skills that they need.


So why are parents reluctant to reach out to a Life Coach when they feel that their kids are struggling? More to the point - why aren’t they looking for the experts to help their child BEFORE they are struggling?


We want the best for our kids right?


So what’s stopping parents from asking for the help that their children need? Life is tricky enough sometimes; especially when parents feel slightly out of their depth and are struggling themselves.


In this episode, Amanda and I talk about coaching kids / young adults; and how with a few gentle tweaks the changes can be huge.


We give parents an understanding about what to expect from a coach - and that it’s not a failure on their part to look outside the family for support. After all - parents weren’t taught these techniques at school.


And to be honest - most teenagers aren’t really receptive to their parent’s well-meaning advice in the first place!
So Grab a cuppa - and keep listening!
