About this Event

Motherhood isn’t for the faint of heart, especially during the teen years. And you don’t have to get tough to be effective. New tools and words can help you guide your teen to independence, happiness and confidence, and reduce your worry and aggravation.

You can learn a better way to get results without fighting… EVEN IF you have no more patience and believe it’s too late. What would you do to see that happen?

Five days, 15 minutes a day is where you start in “From Helpless to Independent, A 5-Day Challenge”. Here’s what you’ll learn:

• How to know whether you should get involved or not with your teen’s problem • Tools to help you calm down and step back (when all you want is to fix it!) • Methods of communication to increase trust and connection • Insights to understand what motivates you to do too much for your child • What to say and do to become an ally instead of the enemy • and MORE!

It is never too late to change course and support your teen becoming the person you know they can be. What you do now makes a difference!

In “FROM HELPLESS TO INDEPENDENT” we’ll spend 15 minutes a day meeting virtually. What you learn over these 5 days will have a long-lasting effect on your teen’s preparation for life. These tools are doable, and doable by you! All activities and materials will be in our private Facebook group.

BONUS: Each day’s training/learning will be provided to you as a downloadable PDF. You can refer to it as often as you need to reinforce your learning and confidence. It's yours forever!

As you practice these strategies you’ll begin to see your teen becoming more capable and confident . What could be better than that?!
