Are you at a loss for how to best help your struggling teen?
Does one of the following sound like you?
Your teen was just diagnosed with anxiety, depression, ADHD, or OCD and finding the right help feels so overwhelming. Every place you call has a long waiting list and you have gotten a ton of conflicting advice from friends and family. It feels like there is so much at stake and you don’t want to make the wrong decision.
You have been dealing with this for a while now. Your teen is not getting out of bed, not doing their work, doesn’t seem to care about their future, and won’t speak to you half the time. You have tried everything – several therapists, medication, and all of the advice in the parenting books – and your teen is just not getting better. Nothing seems to work and you are tired of feeling so frustrated and scared.
It seems like there is always a crisis when it comes to your teen, and they won’t get help even though they are deeply unhappy with their life and too anxious to function. And now they are smoking too much pot and you are worried that they may start experimenting with other drugs. You are so afraid that they are going to ruin their life forever and don’t know what to do.
I have the answers you need to help you decide what to do next and to regain the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you can be ok no matter what happens.
And the best part:
This is happening in a group so you get to see what other parents are asking, all the things you never even knew you should ask or felt too uncomfortable to ask. It is also a great way to share resources with people in your exact same situation.
It’s time to start living instead of just surviving.
It’s time to actually enjoy your family again.
