helping families deal with the growing pains of growing up!
It is that time in life, when children grow into teenagers, that a lot is happening for parents and teens – huge change, growing independence, emotional distance, hormonal turbulence. All this can lead to demanding, stressful and difficult situations for the whole family: parents, teenagers and siblings.
Stressbusters-4-Teens could be just what the Doctor ordered
Stressbusters is a life coaching initiative that aims to support parents and teens through the process of growing up. Life Coaches Lisa Parkes and Dr Mariette Jansen have teamed up to create some highly effective, practical easy e-coaching workshops to deal with this particularly sensitive and tricky time for families.
Each workshop fits around research which defines the top 5 stressors causing the most worry for teenagers as:-
- School work
- Friends problems
- Romantic relationships
- Younger siblings
- Stressbusters Dr Mariette Jansen and Lisa Parkes
There is no manual to guide you. There are no rules that apply. There is only learning in the experience!
It might sound daft, but in our experience life is a continuous learning curve. Especially when it comes to families. Parents areemotionally involved with their kids and as a consequence, they can’t be objective. Teenagers are not clear about what life throws at them and are in the middle of growing and discovering. Often they don’t really know what they want and confusion is a common emotion.
When children are growing up, they need the freedom to learn the lessons of life, however, their parents want to protect them from certain experiences. Quite frankly, this has potential disaster written all over it – rows, strops, confusion, frustration, anger and hurt.
Stressbusters-4-Teens is designed specifically with both parent and teen in mind
We aim to bridge the gap that every day stress has made between the two. We want both parties to get a better understanding of each other and offer new approaches that will help you both deal with stressful and challenging situations. Not only will Stressbusters-4-Teens improve well-being and happiness, but it could also help your teen:-
- deal with the most stressful areas of their lives
- find their own path towards positive change
- change their attitude towards problem areas
- develop life skills that will help them take responsibility for themselves
- empower them to make choices
