When I was a teen I was a KNUCKLEHEAD!
I got suspended from school multiple times due to poor decisions, and it seemed like all of the adults in my life had chalked me up as a lost cause. I remember constantly being in trouble at home, at school, and at church.
All the adults in my life thought I was doing everything ALL WRONG, and I believed them.
It wasn’t until 20 years later that everything started making sense. As a high school principal, I realized that all of those struggles that I had in school and at home had actually prepared me to be a powerful principal and life coach. I leaned that my struggles weren’t a problem; they were simply a part of my process.
Now, as a life coach, I help parents connect with their teens, no matter how much trouble they’re in. I help both teens and parents understand the individual process involved in becoming an adult, and we develop the skills that it takes to create mental toughness, emotional resiliency, and a powerful parent/teen relationship.
