The Parent & Teen Toolbox

Dec 21, 2021

Presents need wrapped ( in my case some haven’t arrived yet!) - Relatives are coming home ( well, at least you hope they are ) - Turkeys need stuffed - AND Covid is still here.
Nerves are understandably frayed.


No wonder we are at the end of our tether and taking our anxieties and stresses out on those closest to us.


In this episode I discuss how to avoid ( or if not - then minimise ) the tensions that are likely to be running riot in the home right now.


I offer some pointers that will help

1. Remember WHO you are
2. Stay away from the flash points / people
3. Remember “It takes two to tango”
4. Take much needed time-out
5. Set realistic boundaries
6. Eliciting support can help EVERYONE
7. If all else fails - BREATHE
8. Practice the “Fly on the wall” exercise

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.
