Practical Parenting: Y is for

Y-is-for-YouthThe youth of today have so many opportunities which children of two decades ago could never have dreamt of  – but that does not necessarily make life easier for the teens of today.

In fact, many seem to be lost along the way, with parents less available to them because they are both working full-time, and pursuing their own needs of self-actualisation and survival. Teens naturally turn to their peers for advice and a sense of acceptance, but do not let that fool you. The most valuable relationship which shapes our lives into adulthood are the relationships we have with our parents.

So wake-up, engage, do not leave it to “good luck”, rather actively involve yourself with your children while young and they will actively involve you in their youth and young adult years.parentng-teens

About parentcoachsa

Steph has over 30 year's experience working with families to design child care solutions and supporting parents to be the best parents they can be. In addition she has worked with corporates to find work-life balance solutions for their staff. As a practitioner I have become increasingly aware that work-life balance has become a critical issue, particularly in an age in which the demands of work are often at odds with home and family life. I am passionate about family life, it is the catalyst for every other relationship we have - in every other area of life, we expect to study, get a qualification, try something on appro , we want to feel in control - however it is the one area of life, that none of the above applies - Babies do not arrive with a parenting manual! It is my privilege as a Parent and Life Coach, to partner with you as you take hold of the challenges you are facing in your family, in your life and work with you , supporting you to achieve the decisions and outcomes you are choosing for your family and for your life. It is my job, to keep you on track, to cheer you on, when the "going gets tough". Through coaching, understanding of yourself and your child, and his or her phase of development will enable you to consciously develop a parenting style that will benefit you and your family.
