In every moment you have choices.
Every moment that your kid acts selfishly.
Every moment that your spouse treats you poorly.
Every moment that you judge yourself for not being a better parent.
You can choose to use the moment to react negatively...or make a choice towards wisdom, maturity and freedom.
At Parenting Modern Teens, we help parents and teens make those choices easier and more enjoyable.
In parenting, you are given endless opportunities to use your power and influence wisely.
You are the most important teacher in your kid’s life.
The challenges you face everyday as a parent point to where you’re stuck in tired, old, unhealthy patterns. Believe it or not, you can break these patterns with the help of…
...yes that’s right...your teen!
But you need tools to do this work.
One teacher said of mindfulness (as with parenting)...
"It is the same if you are spinning around in a room
you won’t be able to see what is on the walls or on the floor.
But if you look around slowly
you will be able to see everything."
Modern parents need a certain level of awareness and skill to recognize and transform old habits into new ways of parenting. One powerful tool is mindfulness, already used by parents for centuries.
A mindfulness practice helps you focus and recognize what you’re thinking, feeling, and doing in the moment. I offer mindfulness tools to teens and parents every week as I coach them on their journey towards being their best selves. If you are going to learn to let go and parent with freedom, this age-old tool could prove essential.
This journey may not be easy.
Changing habits is hard work.
I’ve been helping parents and teens learn these simple yet effective tools for over a decade, and I’m so excited to teach you too.
The challenges you face are difficult.
Parenting is so emotional. Maybe the most emotional thing you’ll ever do. After all, your kids are part of you and you are a part of them. That’s why parenting them is SO HARD. Because we care so much!
AND they push our buttons so often! Our family can literally bring out the most intense and sometimes scariest parts of ourselves.
Join me for a 4-week experience where I will teach you mindfulness tools to use today to…
You’ll spend four 30-minute sessions (followed by open discussion) with me and other parents (grandparents welcome too!) practicing some tried-and-true ways that sage parents have used throughout the years to let go of self-centeredness and learn to love in a generous way.
By learning to make better choices in yourself, you can create more freedom for yourself and your teen, and, yes, make parenting easier and more enjoyable. You can transcend old habits and reactions and become the best parent, the best person, you want to be.
