You can stop trying to fix your struggling teen.
If you are like me, you have probably had a vision for your teenager’s life from the minute they were born – maybe even earlier for those of you who really like to plan.
What kind of student they would be, what their friends would be like, where they would go to college and how they would start their own family when that time comes.
And now here you are – watching your teen struggle with mental health issues and not live up to the vision you have always had for them.
So where do you go from here?
I believe the path forward starts with acceptance.
You don’t have to lose hope. You just need to be willing to accept that your teenager’s journey will probably look different from what you had envisioned – and that’s ok.
Most parents don’t know that their efforts to “fix” things for their teen can backfire and keep them stuck or make things worse. And that acceptance of the situation is what will actually help.
This 90-minute workshop will break down the path to acceptance in 3 steps:
the feelings that come with it
what exists without the need to “fix it” so that you can better position yourself to find a solution that will actually help
This workshop is ideal for parents of teenagers with mental health issues who feel like they are on an emotional roller coaster and are having a hard time watching their teen not live up to their potential, alienate the people around them, make bad decisions and not take good care of themselves.
Or for parents who are just generally at a loss for how to help and feel bad watching their kids suffer.
By the end of the workshop, you will be on your way to feeling less frustrated, disappointed, and hopeless about your situation, and seeing much more clearly where you can have the most impact.
