Are you and your daughter struggling right now because she’s super sensitive and reactive to everything you say and do?
If you answered YES and struggle to find an effective approach, you’re not alone.
I have parents asking me for suggestions everywhere I go … the school parking lot, the grocery store and well, even over coffee.
If you’re anything like me, the best way to INTEGRATE the parenting concepts you hear about is to try them and see how they land, so to speak.
However, your family isn’t a one-size-fits-all, and not every tip is going to work for you.
That’s why you need a variety of tools and strategies to handle the tumultuous rite of passage, aka, adolescence.
I want to help you find the best approaches, so I’d like to invite you to set aside 5 minutes each Sunday morning to read a blog on the Cultivating Resilient Teens website and practice the tips offered in the articles.
Why am I suggesting you read these???
Because they’re designed to address the 4 Steps to Cultivate a More Resilient Teen.
Develop a Strong Sense of Self
Create Meaningful Educational Experiences
Design Healthy Social Scenarios
Foster a Connective Family Life
Think of it like this, your daughter is ready to spread her wings and discover her unique gifts.
Now is the right time to reinforce the foundation you’ve laid for her.
Can you image how great it will feel when …
- You and your daughter talk about the tough stuff freely and without arguing
- You’re able to speak from the heart about how hard it is for you to let go and lose control
- You’re able to show up calm and confident to handle the teenage angst that stems from today’s social media monster
It’s possible for you, it really is.
Here’s what a few of my clients are saying:
“Things are better than they’ve ever been … Shawna, you’ve made this process much easier to manage.”
“Shawna, I can’t thank you enough – I really feel like you’re having an amazingly positive impact on our family with these talks. Our daughter seems so much happier and lighter and more willing to engage with us, joke around with us, show us videos she’s enjoying on YouTube.”
“I can’t tell you how much better I feel having you help us navigate all this, Shawna!”
Another question I hear often is, “how do I know if my daughter is just being a teenager, or if she really needs help?”
Instead of being stuck in uncertainty, try this quick quiz and walk away with some solid clues.
What are your go-to tools and strategies as parents?
Please share them, because we’re always stronger together.
