Who is it for?

The parent who seeks strategies and tools, who wants ongoing support and accountability, who prefers the structure of a class, and who wants community.

What will I learn?

This is a parenting class for 21st century parents. The class covers different aspects of teen development–social, psychological, and  neurological.  We will address the challenges of raising a 21st century teen such as screens, school, sass, stress, and social pressure.

What is the time commitment and where is it held?

The crash course has two parts: the pre-recorded classes and live calls.  The lessons are downloadable, which means you can watch or listen on the go, or at home. The live calls are scheduled twice a month. Participants  submit their questions in advance, which will be answered on the calls.

Is this a good class for parents of tweens?

Yes. The earlier you incorporate these methods, the better.

How will this change my parenting?

In short: You’ll go from being reactive and endlessly searching for answers to intentional, resourceful, and lovingly authoritative. You’ll transform how you think about and communicate with your teens.


Tame the Teen is a holistic approach to change. It addresses the experience of both the parent and teen. You will gain practical tools and shift your mindset. Both will allow you to partner with your teen more compassionately and effectively.

What are the subjects of the lessons?

  • The teen brain
  • Communication
  • Boundaries
  • Managing social media and screen use
  • Teaching teens to problem solve
  • Cultivating resilience
  • Preparing for independence

What are some behavioral tools you teach?

What if I miss a call?

You’ll get a replay in your inbox the next day.

What if something comes up in between classes?

Tame the Teen is also about building community and tapping the wisdom of those in your same situation. As part of the class, you gain access to a private Facebook group where you can ask for help, get support, or just vent without being judged.

What materials accompany the course?

  • Downloadable, easy to understand lessons
  • A syllabus/reading list
  • Cheat sheets
  • Scripts/go-to lines
  • Bullet point takeaways
  • Strategies for teaching time management/organization/executive functioning


A package of 3 coaching sessions can be added to the parenting class. These are especially helpful during transitions such as going to middle or high school; the college application process; change in IEP or 504 plan; changes in family structure (new job, job loss, recent separation).

 “I have a stack of parenting books I never get around to reading. Tame the Teen has taken all that information about teens, boiled it down the most important points, and makes it usable. The bullet lists help keep me focused, and it’s just the right amount of info for a busy parent.”  ~  Lisa F., Tenafly, NJ
