Everyday life feels overwhelming for all families and, when a teenager is in the picture, the stress can be even higher. What works for one child might not work for another, and what worked when that child was 15 won't necessarily work at 16.
As a parent or caregiver, do you ever need help getting through sticky situations? Do you feel cornered or realize that your methods are not working? Do you want to try something different?
The Tool Box teaches positive, understandable, and practical skills and strategies for you and your teen, including how to:
• Communicate effectively and clearly
• Identify core issues
• Prioritize needs and wants
• Navigate conflict
• Learn the wonders of true compromise
This time-tested, solution-focused approach-used by many therapists and counselors to help parents, mentors, and teachers navigate new territories-will help you raise healthy and content teenagers; build successful, strong, and positive relationships with them; and prepare them for the rest of their lives.
