Our child needs to know and feel we have their back, not see us as an opponent.
I’m passionate about helping families thrive. I have developed my Peak Parenting range; which includes tools and techniques through my app, retreats and coaching intensives.
“No One Told Me It Would Be This Hard.”
No one taught us how to communicate
No one taught us how to have relationships that thrive
No one taught us what to do, what to say or how to say it
No one taught us how to manage the enormity of feelings we navigate as parents, or how to teach our kids to cope with their feelings, especially through the rocky stages of adolescence
But how about thriving as a family? How about feeling confident and empowered as a parent and once again being lit up by the magic of your children and your family? How about being kind to yourself and your kids and them knowing that you have their backs rather than seeing you as the enemy.
I believe that as parents it’s time we discover the life-changing tools available, so we can handle whatever challenges life throws at us, and come through the other side closer, more connected and communicating in a way that works.
Can you remember what it was like when you were young?
Would you like to have yourself as a parent?
It’s time we treat our young people as young people, not ‘mini me’s’ or inconveniences. What your teen is going through is totally normal. It’s up to us to be leading the way to support them to achieve their potential.
The teenage years can be very challenging for a young person
Today’s society expects young people to live by its rules.
There are pressures from many directions – from school – from peer groups. Throw raging hormones into the mix and life can sometimes be very daunting. The teenager’s need to express their individuality and independence can often create ripples at home.
Using her experience as a parent and a ChildLine Volunteer, Cai will help both you (the parents) and your child – appreciate other’s point of view.
