Parent Advice for the Challenging Child: Grades 9 - 12
Do you feel like you no longer know your teen since she started high school? Do you argue about how much independence she can have? Does she no longer trust your opinion, preferring to listen to her friends. Has she developed an "attitude" that you are afraid will never go away? Do you feel lost and are not sure where to go for help and reassurance?
Parent training may be for you! This is different from counseling in that the focus is not on "teaching you" how to raise your child. Instead the focus is on assisting you in clarifying what is happening, what is a normal part of development, and understanding alternate methods of communicating for this age group. You have the building blocks to do this and may already be using these skills at work. Now it is just a matter of understanding how to use your knowledge to interact with this age group.
I imagine you are thinking "Why would I hire a parent trainer when I can ask my pediatrician, check Google, read a book, or ask my mother?" These are very good points. But if you have tried any of them so far, you may have found that you came away with more questions, or a sense of incompetence for not already knowing something, or feeling like the responses didn't actually address the stresses and concerns you were feeling. The answers were too generic or there was no one to check with if it wasn't working as you expected. You may have also ended up spending more time away from work or paying more co-pays or deductibles seeing your pediatrician for a 15 minute appointment which barely got you past the first question.

What is that worth to you? If you added up all the money you spent on books, the hours you searched Google, the time away from work to go to your pediatrician for advice, and the copays or deductibles you paid for this, what has it cost you so far?
