When the 'stress ball' just ain't cutting it anymore, we need to get serious about stress management. It is no longer a desire for parents but rather a need! The levels of stress that families are under around the world are staggering. There is no 'one-size-fits-all' approach but we do have access to a variety of different measures to help ease some of the burden around parental stress.
Most Parents know being overly stressed isn't good for our health but did you know that our own children ABSORB the stress we experience as well? People don't think of children as being stressed individuals but they are. Let's take a look at how we can get the help we need and improve this area of life.
Teens have always been given a bad-rap and are generally the most 'overlooked' age group out of them all. I usually work with younger children - mostly the early years - but I have found that advocating for teens has been my latest pursuit. There are many challenges when it comes to parenting teens however, it's not as difficult as you may think.
I have asked many parents how they CONNECT with their teen on a daily basis and most of them reply with "They don't want anything to do with me anymore! They lock themselves in the rooms, play video games and hang out with their friends. We don't do much together." Although this may be true, it does not mean we stop trying.
Check out the following TIPS below that help me connect with the teens in my life both personally and professionally....
There is a lot of information out there for parents and children's behaviour. It can be really difficult to sift through it all and know what will work and what won't. Many of my clients say that they have read all the books and searched online for answers but none of it works OR it's too confusing and overwhelming. They want someone to tell them the most efficient way to get the solutions they are looking for. This is where an Early Childhood Consultant that specializes in children's behaviour, discipline and development, can make a HUGE difference. We have sifted through all the info and research and have curated specific programs and workshops to help make it easier for parents.
Our website offers information on many topics covered on our RESOURCES page that are relevant to parenting, the early years, education, coaching and much more. We have articles to read, radio clips to listen to and tv clips to view.
