When your daughter is hurting, struggling, acting out, pushing people away, comparing herself to others, and unable to deal with stress and anxiety in a healthy way… It’s not your fault. Teen girls are under so much pressure.
But it is absolutely imperative that you seek out a solution ASAP.
It’s isn’t important to me if you ever spend a dime working with me.
What I want the most is for your daughter to get the support and resources she needs.
I’ve learned that the longer she embraces negative habits or feels at the mercy of negative thoughts, the more those habits and that negativity become part of how she interfaces with the world.
Your daughter doesn’t need to be a victim of her circumstances and her reactions.
She needs to learn specific tools that allow her to cope with the stress of our complicated world.
That’s where coaching comes in.
Teen coaching offers a way to grow in confidence along with valuable life skills she can be proud of. She is guided and receives the reward of taking steps and experiencing success.
Plus, it’s a huge relief for a girl to know somebody outside of her family sees her, hears her, and gets her. And can help.
But like I said, it isn’t important to me if you ever spend a dime working with me as her coach. What I want is for her to her get the right help immediately.
Did you ever watch Mary Poppins when you were a kid?
I did, and the part that always stuck with me was when Dick Van Dyck was giving the dad perspective about growing up.
He said, “Childhood slips like sand through a sieve… and all too soon they’ve up and grown, and then they’ve flown.”
It was an urgent reminder to me to seize the time while are at home and purpose to help young adults grow.
I encourage you to make the most out of your child’s teen years.
