“It is so comforting to know that I’m not on my own...
TeenSeen has worked with our family for several years now. TeenSeen manages to keep my 12 yo son engaged (no mean feat!) and keen to turn up to learn, as he understands the value of the vast wealth of knowledge and, most importantly, empathy, fondness, and care for my son that shines through at all times.
As a single mother, I feel very supported by this process. It is so comforting to know that I’m not on my own, that others have the same/similar issues to our family, and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, in the form of expertly delivered and practical tools and tips.
My son is so much happier and has much greater self-esteem and interpersonal skills than prior to working with TeenSeen.
I have learned a great deal as well, including how to tweak my language so that my messages are more readily heard by my child.”
Katrina, Mother of 12 yr old boy
“As a family we were adrift, confused & emotionally spent when we first reached out to TeenSeen.
Through working with our 11 & 13-year-old daughters, and with us as parents, we all learnt to step back and were taught why we each behave the way we do at different times in our lives. When starting with this knowledge gained through TeenSeen, we stopped reacting to difficult behaviour & we were all able to develop a language to explain, understand and find solutions to work through the hard stuff together.
As a family, we don’t feel like we are on an out-of-control roller-coaster anymore. We feel like we are at the controls and we are all enjoying the ride of adolescence through all the twists & turns.”
Vicky & Russell, Parents
Adolescents are adults with L plates.
They are becoming more and more independent, but they need the love and guidance of their parents and carers more than ever. The way you choose to see their world will create the world you see.
It’s never too late to adjust your lens.
Our programs will give you the tools and knowledge to show you how.
TeenSeen Schools Programs are for parents and teachers to get a better grip on the normal, natural and necessary (yes, necessary) behaviours that typically mark the period of adolescence.
Our programs can be targeted to either a full school community, or teacher professional development, and explain the confluence of many factors that can, but don’t have to, make it hard for teens and their carers.
As a business, you care about your employees. You care about their work/life balance. The more successful and content they are at home, the more productive they’ll be at work.
But the truth is you can’t manage their home life. Things happen that are beyond your control. But maybe there is a way to facilitate things and take an active leadership role in educating them about what they may be going through.
Let’s hear it for all the parents! You have survived what by far is the toughest job in the world.
Adolescence is all about leaving the family nest. What’s really happening is your child is learning to become brave and adaptable enough to live a life…without you. So, the challenge for parents is how to stay connected whilst letting go.
Our online program is for parents to better understand the WHY behind teenage behaviour then giving the HOW they can be at their best.
