Hi, I’m Helaina Altabef. I’m an educator and personal coach for parents. I help parents tame teen angst and create strong relationships during what can be challenging years.
Even if you feel like you’ve tried everything, it’s not too late to end the battles and restore your connection.
You can raise your teen to be independent and resilient.
And you don’t have to sacrifice your sanity in the process!
You’ll get a midweek dose of parenting motivation and inspiration, delivered straight to your inbox every Wednesday morning.
Helaina has stellar knowledge of the young mind. She guides parents to manage teen behavior with a mix of consistency, detachment, understanding, and curiousity. After working with her, I learned how to give structure, love and boundaries. Her sensible but not always obvious strategies have improved our relationship dramatically.
Tame the Teen is a valuable resource for parents and professionals alike. The information is current and well-rounded, and Helaina connects with her audience immediately. Tame the Teen provides caregivers with tools for effectively engaging with 21st century learners and helping them thrive.
Prior to working with Tame the Teen, I struggled with my sons: the more I tried to “help,” the worse things got. I was managing my sons. Now, I learned how to set expectations and be consistent, and also to step back and let my sons become responsible. I nag them less and they cooperate more. My sons are more independent and empowered, and I am more confident and calm.
