To say that parenting a difficult teenager is stressful is an understatement.
The stress is hard on you, your other children, and your relationship with your parenting partner. You feel judged by friends, family, and even by professionals. No one seems to understand. You’ve tried everything, and it’s hard not to feel like a failure.
You want the best for them but feel helpless. They can’t or won’t listen to your advice and guidance but still blame you for everything. While other teenagers thrive, yours seems to stagnate if not actively sabotage their opportunities. You worry about their decisions and future. You’re overwhelmed by disappointment and fear.
It’s not too late. I can help.
If this is your experience, I want to reassure you that you are not alone. The truth is that parenting teenagers is hard. I call it the “big leagues” of parenting, and it requires an upgraded perspective, mindset, and skillset.
Since 2006, I have been helping parents evolve their parenting to meet the ever-changing needs of their teenager. I can do the same for you. I can help you become the ally, not the enemy, in your teenager’s life. I can help you stay calm no matter what your teenager throws at you, regain your confidence as a parent, and, most importantly, stay connected to your teenager.
“Ken provided us with warm, thoughtful, and knowledgeable support through intense parenting challenges with our teens. He helped us remember to stay connected as a parenting team through our shared values for our family and to stay grounded when the waves of emotions rose up (both within and before us!). His approach is humble and attentive, but he clearly has extensive experience with many different families and situations. This gave us confidence that he could handle anything we needed his help with. We really appreciate his coaching and highly recommend him.”
