Not Your Momma's Parenting Advice: End the Cycle of Conflict with Your Teen

If you are a caregiver of a teen struggling with depression, anxiety, PTSD, anger, drug use, high-risk behaviors, runaway, etc, this book is for you. Parenting teens has become exponentially more difficult over the last 10 years. This book is designed to help you have a better relationship with your teen and solve conflicts so they don’t keep happening over and over again.

The two main points I cover here are the need for
 connection and collaboration while addressing conflict.

I am a therapist-turned-parenting coach, and I have used this method hundreds of times to help families through conflict. If you are interested in learning more about coaching, you can always visit my website: I give you everything you need in the book to get a handle on the conflict in your family and start actually addressing the real issues right NOW.

This book is designed as a how-to model and is very low on fluff and hot air. I am not that kind of person, so I didn’t write that kind of book. It will give you the tools and strategies you need to approach conflict differently than ever.


Here’s what you can expect:

  • Define exactly what connection and collaboration mean
  • Learn why this approach is better than the traditional approach
  • Debunk and re-work all that bad parenting advice you’ve gotten in the past
  • Parenting Self-Assessment so you can know where you are and where you want to be
  • Learn about the 7 big lies parents tell themselves in the midst of this trying season and how to address them
  • Common questions about the process answered so you know the why behind the process
  • What to expect from the process
  • How exactly to calm the storm, collaborate and connect so you don’t keep having the same blowups over and over
  • Worksheets to plan out your conversations to minimize the chances of unmanageable conflict and plans on what to do when conflict does happen
  • The 7 Stupid Things Parents Say That Don’t Make Sense (and How to address them)
  • Clarity on why what you are doing now isn’t working.
  • Common questions and answers around the process
  • A realistic timeline on how long it’s going to take to see results.
  • How exactly to use Connection and Collaboration to change your family.
  • Examples of how the process works and troubleshooting advice.
  • The Golden Rule and how it applies to parenting.

There is absolutely no catch. This book has everything you need in it to stop the cycle of conflict with your teen!

All you have to do is read the book and then do the things!
