The joy of parenting often entails making tough
decisions, many times under stress. This is
especially true if you have teens that are
pushing your buttons.
The focus of this parenting program is on you
the parent. The goal is to help you understand
the relationship patterns you have with your
teen and the different coping styles you gravitate
to when stress levels are high.
In this program, you will learn how to remain
present with your teen especially during turbulent
times. You will discover how to develop effective
methods of parenting your teen that bring you
more of what you want in your relationship with
him or her.
Former Parent Program Member States:
"This course [parenting program] has greatly
helped in my ability to deal with my teens. I think
they are much more likely to open up to me and be
honest, even if it is not what I want to hear. I
also feel less stressed about stuff that is clearly
their issues and not mine. I also felt a real sense
that Klaus was with us every step of the way, and
I appreciate his compassion and caring for all of
us, and the kids too."
The premise of this parenting program is that the
one and only thing you truly have control over is
If you are not in control of yourself then you can’t
be in charge of highly emotional situations with your
teen. Once you know how to maintain control over
yourself you will be able to maintain a strong connection
to your teen in times of stress. You will also have a
far better chance of influencing behavior in a positive
This program is not designed to go deeper into the ‘problem’.
It is designed to go deeper into ‘you’ as the parent.
If you are looking for quick behavior solutions
then this will not be the right program for you.
What this program will do for you as the parent is take
you into your own inner resources so that you can ‘be’
different with your son or daughter.
This is where the real creative parenting answers come
from for deep lasting changes specifically for you, your
situation, and your relationships.
Parenting Program Outline
The 7 sessions in this parenting program will include
experiential exercises and mini lectures on teen development.
The experiential component is based on the Satir model for
therapy. This model focuses on your internal processes and
how to handle your teen in a more effective and congruent
way. You will learn and practice skills that will help you
communicate better with your teen. Other materials are
based on ScreamFree Parenting by Hal Runkel MA, AMFT.
7 Modules in sequential order:
1. Your Internal Process And How It Impacts Your
Relationship With Your Teen: Introduction to a Personal
– Explore and make sense of your internal process when
interacting with your teen. You will first gain clarity
on your own thoughts, feelings, and the expectations you
have when relating to your teen. You will then discover
how to use yourself in a more proactive way when interacting
with your teen. Introducing ScreamFree materials and workbook.
2. Coping Stances: Looking at Your Patterns of Relating
to Your Teen – Discover how you react with your teen and how
this influences your teen’s behavior. Look at your part of the
relationship and change the pattern to get control of yourself
and the situation with your teenage son or daughter. You will
see how you can influence your teen’s behavior through changing
your own behavior.
3. Difficult Parenting Moments: Internal Process & Practice
– Deepen skills for yourself so that you can handle stressful
situations with your teen better. Practice your skills
for dealing with your teen based on present day scenarios.
Practice coming from a congruent stance instead of using
a coping stance to change the relationship.
4. Examining the Ingredients of an Interaction with
Your Teen – You will break down and discover the small
moments that make up an interaction with your teen. You
will see what happens when certain words are exchanged
between you and your teen and how you both become
defensive. You will practice slowing down the speed of
interactions with your teen in order to get control of
your defensive reactions. This will help you maintain
control in difficult situations.
5. The Impact of Reacting Emotionally to Your Teen
– You will look at how your disappointments, frustration,
sadness, and anger can push your teen further away. You
will experience the letting go of negative emotions and
ideas so that you can actually move closer to your teen.
6. Self-Care as a Parent – what does this really
mean for you taking of yourself as the adult?
How do you fill your 'internal cup' when you’re always giving?
Learn an internal framework to check in and know to get your
energy back where it’s needed so you can be at your best.
7. Anchor the Positive changes You Have Made with Your
Teen – In the last session you will reaffirm and celebrate
the new awareness and the positive changes you have made
with your teen. You will develop a plan to continue to
implement your new behaviors in order to strengthen your
relationship with your teen even in the coming years.
Julie – mother and former teacher states:
"I found the parenting program to be the best,
most practical and helpful ‘class’. I felt very supported
during the whole process. I feel more hopeful about the
boys and more at peace with myself."
