The Parent & Teen Toolbox

Jul 6, 2021

Last week we were talking about how parenting can be all-consuming and if we are not careful, it starts to define who we are. Mums do sometimes struggle to find their identity and this tends to keep them playing small.


In this episode I talk with Karine as she offers practical advice for mums who wish to focus on their professional goals again; whether that is restarting an old career, finding a new one, or even starting their own business.


Karine’s 6 Top Tips to Boost Your Confidence will offer the kick start that you might be waiting for :

How do you describe yourself?
What about your challenges?
What if you failed?

Be kinder to yourself

* Three Questions to Ask Your Uncommunicative Child :

All too often parents say to me :

“My child won’t speak to me”
“I know something’s not quite right - but they won’t tell me what’s wrong.”

Well, I have a resource for you.

It will help you reconnect with your child quickly and easily; and in a way that will not drive them to their bedroom to avoid you!

If you are looking for support at a deeper level for your child, then please book a call with me. Invariably they might only need a couple of sessions. But if we can give our kids the tools to improve their emotional wellbeing NOW - then you’re more likely to alleviate the longer term damage to their mental health.
