Are you struggling to cope with your teenager's rude and moody behaviour?

We can support you with a range of concerns, including connecting and communicating with your teenager.

  • How do I respond to disrespectful or rude behaviour in my teenager?
  • My teenager has trouble sticking to our family rules. How do I handle this to get different results?
  • How do I guide my teenager towards making good choices?
  • My teenager can really push my buttons. How do I remain calm and communicate appropriately?

New ways to look at parenting:
Betty and Jane's story.

Betty’s daughter Jane had become moody and irritable, seemingly overnight. Betty felt that she couldn’t say anything to Jane without it turning into an argument. This created stress for the whole family, and increased the distance between Betty and Jane.

Our professionals supported Betty to gain a better understanding of teenage brain development. They also suggested ways Betty could support both herself and her daughter through this time. Betty learned new ways to manage her own frustrations and to keep calm so that she could be a good listener for her daughter.

As a result of these changes, Betty and Jane understood each other better and managed their emotions more calmly. Their improved communication and connection made things much happier at home.
