  • Coaches can give you a third-party perspective on what you are doing right and where you might need to make some changes to improve. 
  • Carve out time toward the end of the week when you can have a family meeting or otherwise connect with your teenagers when they aren’t tired and bogged down by school and other obligations. 
  • Make family meetings fun, and you’ll get things done!
  • Coaches can teach you and your teenagers to find agency and autonomy. 


“With teenagers, that consistency piece of just keep showing up even when there is resistance (because that’s one of the hardest things to learn in parenting a teenager, and people want to give up because it gets hard). And if you stick with it, like everything else, they come to look forward to it as their quality time.” – Keely Ng
