Bet you thought you'd seen the end of temper tantrums, abusive behaviour, and outright defiance when your toddler grew up, didn't you? Then along came your teenager and it started all over again. Except this time the loud, obnoxious, irrational and self centred person in your life is a whole lot bigger and stronger, and can't be picked up and removed to another room, or restrained, or watched 24 hours a day.
The scary thing about teenagers is that the trouble they can get themselves into through poor behaviour and choices is potentially very serious, and can have damaging and long term effects on their lives. You're at your wits end – they won't listen to you, they oppose everything you say, and their behaviour is so irrational and out of control that you are seriously worried about their safety. You have finally come to the realisation that you simply don't know what to do next.
There is no shame in calling on outside help to assist you through those difficult teen years – in fact it makes perfect sense to ask for help from someone with the experience and insight that you, as a first time parent of teenagers, may not have developed yet. But where to find that help? Who to ask? The web (and your local bookstore) is full of advice from all sorts of people with all sorts of theories on how to manage defiant teens. You don't know if they have practical experience, or if they are just educated people with well presented but ultimately pointless plans – made up largely of catchphrases and airy-fairy new age claptrap.
Meet Mark Hutten. Employed by Madison County IN as a probation officer working with serious repeat youth offenders, Mark has a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology, and has for over 20 years worked as a Family Therapist, performing home-based counseling/supervision for families experiencing difficulty with their children's emotional and behavioral problems. This guy is the real deal – he works with troubled teens and their families, and is also on the Indiana Juvenile Justice Task Force, as well as working at the Madison County Correctional Complex.
Mark's approach is to try and prevent teenagers from getting into trouble in the first place, but when they do, the focus shifts to getting them to understand and take responsibility for their behaviour. His is a no fuss approach – no new age BS here – just sound and practical advice and assistance from a guy who works with kids before they get into serious trouble, as well as with those who have already crossed that threshold.
Mark has developed his course – Online Parent Support – so that people all over the world can now benefit from his years of education, experience, and genuine concern for the welfare of young people and their families.
For the sake of your sanity, and the future of your children, have a listen to a guy who knows what he's talking about. Check out Mark's website by clicking on the link below.
