Ready to Leave Home?

Did you ever wonder when you were getting ready to leave home for the first time, if your parents had taught you everything you needed to know to survive on your own? Did you know how to do laundry; clean a home; balance a checkbook or cook a meal? Were you aware of the different types of deposits required to either rent or buy a home? If the answers were “yes” – good for the role models that you had! Thank them every chance you get! If the answers were “no” to most of these questions – don’t be discouraged – there is help on the way!

Creating a Well-blended Step Family

Man and woman relationships alone are difficult. When you add his kids, her kids, his ex, her ex and the in-laws, most people cannot handle the pressure. Step-families require more effort and understanding because of more people involved, and this often includes young ones who didn’t ask to be put into the situation to begin with.

You and Your Teen Can Survive!

When I say the word teenager what comes to mind? If you are like most people, the words rebellion, trouble, andstubborn, come to mind. You might also think: drugs, crime, pregnancy, peer pressure, sex, puberty, driving, attitudes, relationships, irresponsible, and messy. Those about to go through the teen years might think: independence, first job, fun, sports, adventure, dating, invincible, and driving. It is time to change the way adults see teenagers. Teens today are faced with drugs, teen pregnancy, texting or sexting, alcohol, peer pressure, bullying, and other dangers. Why do our teens use drugs and alcohol, gamble, or fall prey to other destructive behaviors such as eating disorders or cutting? We will walk through these and other scenarios and I will offer guidance on how to get through it. We take our children through childhood, into teenhood, and then onto adulthood. Remember: if you go into the adventure together, you will come out of it together.

Positive Parenting

It all starts with a stick…those two minutes you have to wait are the longest two minutes of your life…then you get the “+” sign. You are pregnant! You will be someone’s parent. You spend the next nine months preparing for your baby. You realize that there are so many things to do; so many things to buy; and so many things to learn. You also realize that children don’t come with instruction manuals. Now what?

Teaching Teens Success Principles

The primary goal of the teen years is to achieve independence. Other goals include: finding a way to fit in; thinking about a career choice; and for many just making it through high school. For the process of the primary goal to occur, teens will start pulling away from their parents. They will pull away from the parent they are closest to first. Although capable of making decisions, a number of teens are not ready for the adjustment. Maturity levels vary amongst teens. No matter what level you are in your maturity, the principles in “Teen Success: It’s All About You! Your Choices – Your Life” will work for you.
