1. We’ll have an introductory
call where we’ll get to know each other and look at
the specific challenges your family is facing. It is likely
there is at least one issue that feels very immediate –
like curfew, chores, screens, back talk, homework …but
you most likely have identified other areas where you’d
also like to strengthen your overall communication and relationship
with your teen.
2. I’ll recommend a game plan
based on the Positive Discipline approach and tailored to
3. We’ll come up with a strategy to
implement the plan that is respectful to both you and your
teen. This is key, so that you feel comfortable and empowered
to follow through on the plan.
4. Then, we’ll have three additional
sessions scheduled over four months to discuss and tweak the
plan, and to talk about any new issues in your family. Changing
patterns of parenting and relationships can bring up questions,
and these follow-up sessions provide you with important support.
