I’m worried that my kids aren’t “world-ready.”
How do I get my teen to contribute around the house?
I want to connect with my kids. How can I get through to them and have meaningful conversations beyond grunty, 1-word answers?
I just want to know them and have fun with them before they’re gone.
These are concerns I hear from the parents I serve. There are a few habit shifts that can turn these concerns into successes in fairly short order.
We’re human BEINGS
These habits aren’t just about the “DOing.” To make lasting changes for the better, we have to dig into habits of “BEing.” Sometimes that takes looking just below the surface, other times, we go deeper.
I provide a safe space to do just that.
I’ve been supporting parents and teens as they navigate the challenging richness of raising the next generation. The parents want to succeed in bringing them up and the kids want to raise the vibe of the bad rap each new generation gets slapped on them.
Raising teens is full of our own “remember when” and “oh boy, here we go” moments that we can choose to either DREAD or RELISH.
No stage of parenting needs to be “endured”
JOY is a choice and the sooner we embrace that together with our kids, the better off we’ll be as individuals, community members, and the next generation of solution-finders. Check out Enjoy Every Stage group coaching for a fun, accessible way to strengthen connections in your family.
Parent/Teen Connection Coaching
I often meet with parents AND teens so we’re on the same page. I’ll meet with each separately and then all together.
“My kids talk to you… like about TOUGH stuff. Kids just TALK to you.”
Beth – parent of 2
“While I was lost – searching for my way, Julie helped me recognize myself for who I am. She helped me keep a budget and manage parts of my life that [I thought] I was unsure how to do. The biggest thing – she helped. I was doing all the work, but she was there along the way to watch me grow.”
D. age 19
“Working with Julie has been such a blessing to my family. My children are excited to talk with her and learn new skills to help them successfully navigate life as teenagers and young adults transitioning to living healthy and happy independent lives.
As a parent, working with Julie helps me to navigate all of these changes more successfully and gives me more tools to better communicate with my children and to understand their needs so much better.
All of us working with Julie, means that we are all learning the same tools and have a language that we all understand to help facilitate more positive and healthy communication.”
