A Note From The Santa Monica Teen & Family Therapist
I can help you learn how to strengthen your relationship with you adolescent. – Sandra
When teens observe how we treat them and others, they learn how to behave. A parent’s interaction with their teen literally impacts their child’s brain development, and parenting styles are often passed down through generations.
Unfortunately, in our society, shaming is an accepted parenting tool for controlling teens. Many teens hear shaming and humiliating messages all day long: comparisons with siblings or other kids, the mocking of their age and abilities, or comments that make them feel stupid or inferior.
It is important to remember that respect and civility both start at home. As a parent, you are responsible for modeling both self-respect, and respect for others. When you treat your teen with respect, they will learn to treat themselves and others respectfully.
Your body language, facial expressions, the tone & volume of your voice, threatening violence, withholding affection, rejecting behavior, demeaning words or physical punishment all directly impact your teen’s self-esteem and can even teach them aggressive behavior. The foundation of respectful disagreements involve avoiding raising your voice, swearing, name-calling or pointing your finger in the teen’s face.
In my 6-week Private Parent Coaching Workshop, you will learn how to effectively help your teenager become more responsible, respectful, communicative and independent.
Topics will include:
- Understanding Yourself and Your Teenager
- Improving Your Response to Your Teen
- How to Communicate Respect and Understanding
- Encouraging Cooperation and Problem‐Solving
- Using Consequences to Build Responsibility
**Recommended for parents with children between the ages of 11 and 19.
If your teen or young adult child is struggling socially or emotionally, I can help you to discover the cause and remedy it.
