Parenting Teens: Cracking the Code of Adolescence with Courtney Strull

“Because I said so” doesn’t go over well with teens. In fact, it can charge them into arguing, defiance and a relentless determination to get what they want. Teens live in the now and star in their own movie. For parents this can be one of the most frustrating and powerless periods of parenting that creates confusion, conflict and a breakdown in relationship.

Listen to Laurie interview Courtney Strull, LPC for real talk on the developmental tasks of adolescence, when parenting feels ineffective and the value of offering choices. You are not alone!

If you are experiencing conflict or distance with your adolescent, individual or family therapy may be a beneficial option. The therapists at The Montfort Group have extensive training and expertise in helping families communicate, maintain or regain connection and grow together.
