The Parent & Teen Toolbox

Jul 13, 2021

As parents, there is so much going on for us as we navigate family life.

The teenage brain is a constant ‘work-in-progress’ - so we often need to adapt to the changes quickly, freely, and with PATIENCE. Patience for our children and also patience for ourselves.


In their bid for independence, sometimes our children are not too receptive to their parent’s “interfering” and tend to pull away. Malva addresses this by explaining the importance of PROXIMITY and how this can build stronger relationships between parents and children.


She also goes on to discuss the merits for parents to become more TEACHABLE and to be open-minded enough to learn from our children. Speaking from experience, this truly helps to enrich the parent/child relationship.

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.
