Advice for Parents of Teens


A Lasting, Science-Based Approach to Help You “Decode” Your Teenager’s Behavior

Every parent of a teenager knows that teens can be difficult, moody, and downright defiant at times.

This behavior seems to crop up out of nowhere. One day, you’re a parent to a clever and bubbly tween, and the next, you’re on an emotional rollercoaster with your new teenager.

Dealing with difficult teenage sons or daughters is a challenge—and communicating with them is a seemingly impossible task.

We understand. We’ve been there too.

That’s why our founder and parenting expert, Tammy Gold, developed The Therapeutic Parenting Method for parents.

Using psychology and a science-based approach, we can help you decode your
teenager’s baffling behaviors and create channels for positive communication.

You’re Overwhelmed, Stressed & Frustrated Not Being Able To Understand Why Your Teenager Acts The Way They Do

Teenagers experience radical changes that can affect every aspect of their lives. While they attempt to make sense of their new physical, emotional, and hormonal reality, the rest of the family may feel like they’re walking through a minefield.

These life-altering physiological changes are confusing and difficult for teens to navigate.

As parents, this is stressful and frustrating because we want to help, but our teens run hot and cold—and communication is sometimes non-existent.

Nobody wants to be left in the dark, least of all parents.

The Therapeutic Parenting Method was explicitly designed for this reason.

We won’t just tell you what to do; we will equip you with the skills and knowledge to communicate effectively with your teenager so you can guide them through their adolescent years with support and encouragement.

Biological and Developmental Changes In Your Teenager

At this stage, your teenager is experiencing biological changes that affect their physical and emotional development.

In addition to their physical transformation, your teenager’s hormones are surging.

This can lead to emotional ups and downs and changes in their daily habits.

You may have felt prepared to discuss these developments with your teenager, only to have them shut you out completely.

No matter how many times you rehearse “the talk,” it very rarely goes as planned and can leave your teen feeling awkward or embarrassed.

We’ve seen it many times, and we can help.

The Therapeutic Parenting Method gives you the tools to understand your teen’s feelings about these biological changes—and how to talk about them—so you can help them build confidence and self-esteem as they head toward adulthood.

Environmental Changes In Your Teenager

Being a teenager today is hard. The pressures of competition in school, sports, and social status can cause stress for your teen.

Peer pressure, or peer influence, is a big part of your teen’s everyday life. More than ever your teenager wants to belong to a particular group. They want to fit in.

The importance of peer acceptance can cause your teen to distance themselves from you as they try to discover who they are.

This is scary for parents. While you want to encourage independence, you don’t want your teen to pull away from you completely.

The Therapeutic Parenting Method is centered around understanding the “why” behind these behaviors so you can stay connected to your teen through these social challenges.

We’ll help you guide your teenager toward positive decision-making while staying true to themselves.

We will help you cultivate a relationship that values your teenager’s need for independence while positioning you as the role model they can come to for advice in any situation.
