Let’s be real for a minute…parents and teens drive each other crazy. You might find yourself in the middle of a war zone, walking on eggshells, or bunkered down waiting for the other person to give in and surrender. It doesn’t have to be this way though! Grandville Teen Counseling from Great Lakes Wellness Counseling is here to help.
Help me with my teen!
Life used to be great with my kids. We got along, they said the loved me, and we had fun together. Now they tell me they hate me and barely speak to me unless they absolutely have to or want something. They constantly fight with each other or me. I end up fighting with my spouse about what to do. Sometimes, I cry myself to sleep at night because I can’t figure out what to do.
There’s hope. You don’t have to be stressed out anymore. Losing your temper will become unfamiliar. You won’t feel alone and unequipped in this battle of loving your child. At Great Lakes Wellness Counseling our counselors will provide you with tools, tips, and strategies to regain a healthy and mutually respectful teen-parent relationship.
Conflicts will be resolved. Communication will improve. You’ll both know what to expect from one another. Your relationship will improve and your family bond will be strengthened. You might even laugh together again!
Schedule a Grandville Teen Counseling session today to get back what you had with your child.
My parents drive me crazy!
We get it. We know that life is complicated and a lot of the time it’s not fair. Parent’s can be great sometimes but a lot of the time you may feel like they are doing everything they can to make your life horrible. Grab a water from our fridge or sip on a coffee or hot chocolate from our office and tell us about it. You can bring a snack too if you’d like.
We want you to be ok and have someone to turn to when things get tough. Life can feel pretty lonely if you don’t have anyone to trust or be real with. We know that your trust is hard to earn but if you give us a chance I think we’ll be able to trust each other and get your life back better than it has been.
If you’re wondering if what we talk about stays private it does, unless you tell us you are going to hurt yourself or others. If that happens we’re required by law to tell other professionals to help keep you or others safe. We do that because we care about you not to violate the trust we have with you.
We’ll have to create a goal or two for our time together. Most of the time that will be a goal that you create for you. Some of the time though we may have to create a goal with your parent(s) too. Our conversations will be about an hour. Part of the time we’ll talk about what’s important to you and also your goal or reason for going to counseling.
We won’t get angry with you. We won’t judge you. We will listen to you. Sound good? Schedule a Grandville Teen Counseling session today. Call us at 616-202-1910 or schedule an appointment online.
