Parenting a teen can be stressful!

I’m not going to kid, it can be bloody hard work parenting a teen. But there’s no need to feel isolated when it comes to the challenges of parenting an adolescent, you certainly aren’t alone.

Often the teen years are overlooked amongst the parent-to-parent chats about teething, toilet training and the ‘terrible twos’ …. but those days can seem like a walk in the proverbial park once there’s a teen in your home! If you’re thinking things are out of control, and you’ve no idea where to turn or what strategies to try … please … don’t despair.

I’m not offering miracle fixes and I’ve got no magic wand, just lots of support, experience and backup to help you make it through the tough parenting phase of adolescence.

I’m working on a ton of resources and programs to help you and your family … but, look, I won’t have all the answers or a fix-it potion… BUT… I promise I’m on your team and I’ve got your back. It’s really super to have you here!

Thank you so much Shari for saving my sanity. When I found you, I was at my wits end with my 13 year old son. I had no confidence in myself or my ability to handle his tantrums and defiance. You have given me strength and guidance in what can be a very difficult time in his life and mine. You have given me information about typical teenage behaviour that I never really knew.

I now do not feel alone in this journey through adolescence. Thanks again! Danielle
