The Parent & Teen Toolbox

Jan 11, 2022

We berate our teens for being addicted to their screens. We complain that our kids are unable to sit still or get their homework done.


And yet, I believe that they are a product of the environment that we have created for them.


We can’t just blame smartphones here.


How we eat and our relationship with food has also conjured up the belief that time is of the essence and that we need to take life on the run. We are now a world of processed meals, TV dinners and drive-thru “dining” - allowing us to nourish our bodies - whilst we are doing something else “more important”.


How bonkers is that?


In this episode I discuss how we have ALL fallen into the trap of immediacy - and that it’s not our children’s fault.

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.
