Session 1)   The 12 Major Mistakes in Parenting Teenagers
Teenagers are experts at avoiding detection and staying under the radar….especially from their parents!
Why? They’ve been "studying" you for years and know exactly how to hide the "things" they want hidden from you.
The transition from child to teenager is dramatic for them, but it’s also dramatic for parents too. The same talk or gesture that made your kids day a few years ago, now only receives a reaction of disdain and indifference. 
It’s not that you are not important to your children, you are arguably more important than ever. However there are 12 mistakes parents make that sabotage their best intentions. In this session you’ll learn what they are and how to avoid them.
Session 2)   Prepare or Protect
It maybe the dream of every parent to wish upon their children a protective cloak that will ward off every possible disease, misfortune and misery. However, so far no loving parent has been able to keep disasters at bay, not your parents, nor their parents, and not anyone’s parents.
In fact, in an effort to try and protect their children many parents fail to help their progeny prepare for almost certain obstacles everyone encounters in their own journey through life.
If you want to keep your children safe you need to give them the tools to navigate their own way out of their own hurdles.

"If you go to one of their seminars looking to see how you can grow as a parent, you will.

Stephen and Ruth draw from a well of deep spiritual wisdom. 

They teach in interesting and informative ways, and they really care."

Marc Inzelstein, Co-founder, Indiggo Associates

Session 3)   Effective Communication
As you probably already know, talking to your teenager is a completely different experience than talking to anyone else. All the rules of normal conversation seem to go out the window. It’s not that there aren’t rules, it’s just that they are different.

The truth is, once you understand the teenage rules they actually make a lot of sense. In this session you will learn how to master the five elements of effective teenage communication.



At any point, if you are not completely satisfied, or the program doesn’t live up to expectations, just let us know and get a total refundfor the whole course – no questions asked! 


Session 4)   Drugs

We all understand how important it is to talk to our kids about drugs. The problem is, what do we say?

We need a lot more than "Just say no." Simply put, you are not the only one talking to them about drugs, and unfortunately those people are cooler than either of us.
The truth is, drugs are just one of many issues our children face in the category of "escape" and by dealing with the general category, you are going to find it a lot easier to deal with this specific issue. 


What Parents Like Most about the “Parenting Teenagers” tele-course:

Convenience. Parents are busy. It’s the common parenting dilemma:“If I could take off six hours to learn about parenting, I wouldn’t have as many issues as I do.” 

If you can’t make the class, listen anytime you want, as often as you want for a week.

The program really gets to the nitty-gritty of what children needto succeed. This is not pie-in-the sky, this is real life examples and practical advice that you are going to be able to implement immediately.

Session 5)   Parenting is a Team Sport
Invariably spouses find themselves arguing technique with each other almost as much as they argue with their children.

Of course it’s easy to find the places you disagree, but the truth is there are far more areas you are actually in agreement. This session focuses on the dynamics of a common front, understanding compromise, plus other vital skills to turn your parenting into a team sport.

Session 6)   Depression, Anger and Bad Moods
Telling your children you love them doesn’t have the same impact after 11 or 12 years old. You are really going to have to upgrade your tool chest if you want to nudge those unhealthy teenage black clouds out of your kids head.

what is essential in child-raising.

Thank you again for a spectacular

learning experience.

Wonderful seminar,

would love to do a follow up."




Session 7)   Lying & Stealing 
Unfortunately catching your teenager in a major lie is not that uncommon today. Plus not keeping commitments, using rationalizations and getting defensive and far too common issues in today’s teens.

Children engage in these behaviors because they really think they will gain, and of course a parent is caught in the dilemma of whether to punish the lying or reward the final admission of guilt.

However, there is a third alternative.


What are the magic potions and soothing words that will give our children the strength to conquer their own battles and go on to live exciting and fulfilling lives?

At "Parenting Teenagers" we show you a side of parenting most parents never thought of before. Apart from offering solutions and techniques we emphasize peace of mind and understanding the parent’s role and process.

Session 8)   Money & Motivation
As strange as it may sound, it’s harder to raise children in affluence than poverty.
There is a big difference between teaching your children values and instilling the value of money – just because you have taught them to respect people, does in no way imply they are going to value hard work.
If you don’t want them to be one of your dependents for the rest of your life, you need to learn the concepts in this session.

Session 9)   The Paradox and the Dilemma
It’s odd, but making it easier for our children doesn’t seem to make them more successful. What is going on?

A Parent is faced with an inordinate amount of choices and decisions.  How many times do we look back and wish we could do it all again. 
How do we do the best for our children?  You might have a thermometer that tells your child’s temperature, but you don’t have a similar meter to tell if they are happy and well adjusted. 
Very few parents think they are letting their children down, so how do we know if we are, or not?
The basic theme of the program is how to raise happy and self-confident children. 
After years of research delving into the Jewish concepts of parenting, you now have the opportunity to experience parenting in a way that makesdramatic sense.

"Parenting Teenagers" will show you how simple and easy techniques make all the difference in the world.

"Parenting Teenagers" teaches parents the key skills to sustainhealthy, respectful, loving relationships; improve communication and create a more satisfying, nurturing family.
I have yet to meet the parent who wants their child to fail.
Everyone raises their children in the hopes of success. So how do we know we have it right above the vast majority of wishful thinking parents?
In marriage, business, sports, in fact just about everything we do, we start with the hope and maybe expectation of winning. However, in all these endevours it becomes clear, usually sooner than later, who knows what they are really doing. In parenting, by the time you find out, it’swell into overtime.
Knowing what you want for your children doesn’t guarantee they will get there, anymore than knowing how much money you would like, or what kind of house you would like to live in.
"Parenting Teenagers" will show you what it takes in simple and applicable steps. 
The seminar covers the issues parents are concerned with today. The course is practical, insightful, and with the tele-course, incredibly convenient. Immediately after the first course you will start to realize how helpful and practical these ideas are.
The course has a money-back guarantee – if you don’t hear ideas that help you improve your parenting, it’s real simple to get your money back.
The consistent line every parent says when they encountered major problems with their children: "I didn’t see it coming." Don’t be one of them. Sign up now.
