Strong for Parenting

Why do these skills and strengths matter?

Strong for ParentingBetween the ages of 12 and 24, your child grows from a pre-teen into an adult. That journey requires a different set of parenting skills and strengths.


During adolescence, the best way to guide your child’s maturation is to communicate effectively with them.


Unfortunately, support for parents who want to acquire these abilities has been practically nonexistent.

Until now...


Strong for Parenting is your virtual personal trainer to help you grow stronger in two key areas:


Communication Skills – The 7 most critical skills for parent-teen interaction

Personal Strengths – The top 10 practices for handling any parenting challenge


Strong for ParentingThis core area involves the behavior patterns for doing hard things when you face challenges or adversity as you interact with your child.


There are many ways to be strong, but these are the top 10 personal strengths for parenting an adolescent:

  • Awareness – being in the moment with your child and noticing moods and changes in habits
  • Compassion – showing empathy and understanding
  • Composure – keeping your cool when things get hot
  • Fairness – setting and enforcing reasonable guidelines
  • Flexibility – changing course as needed
  • Integrity – doing what you say you’ll do
  • Optimism – taking a realistic, balanced view
  • Patience – waiting for the right time to speak or act
  • Perseverance – not giving up on your child, even in tough times
  • Trust – giving more freedom and responsibility as it’s earned



Strong for Parenting Interacting with your teen in an adult-to-adult manner is the way to build a strong, positive relationship that prepares a child for adult life.


As your adolescent’s primary coach, you’ll find out how to master these 7 essential communication skills:

  • Listening – Giving attention, checking understanding
  • Stimulating thinking – Asking questions to get the other person to think
  • Guiding learning from experience – Asking questions about what, why, consequences, and lessons learned
  • Engaging in dialogue – Keeping an open mind while asking about opinions
  • Giving encouragement – Acknowledging situation, affirming, offering support
  • Giving constructive feedback – Affirming positives, describing observed behavior, its impact, and desired behavior
  • Resolving conflicts creatively together – Asking about needs, brainstorming mutually beneficial options

Strong for Business


"When I first saw Strong for Parenting, I confess that I was a little skeptical that an online system could provide much more than the free parenting tips I find on blogs and websites. Boy, was I wrong! The topics that I've covered in this program took me far beyond the glib advice from anonymous "experts." There's so much information and support! The content burrows deep into all of the personal and behavioral areas where I needed help and so much more.


"I've watched and re-watched the videos, posted the inspirational quotes up in the kitchen, and engaged my own personal network of friends in my goals. And all of this in my family’s timeframe—when my kids most needed a strong parent. In one case, I used the tools in the Constructive Feedback section to have what would have been another unsuccessful conversation with my son about his video gaming. We resolved the problem and surprisingly, bonded even further. I would recommend Strong for Parenting to any parent who wants a better relationship with their children!"

- Julie Walker, mother of 2

The SCIENCE behind Strong for Parenting

Strong for PerformanceTaking courses, reading books and watching videos can be helpful. But these activities by themselves can’t build communication skills and personal strengths.


That’s because developing these core areas is a lot like working out at a gym to build physical strength. You learn how to do an exercise, but then you need to follow up with practice and repetition. As your muscles get stronger, the exercises get easier.


Improving personal strengths and communication skills works the same way. That’s because:

Knowing how to do something isn't the same as doing it.

Strong for ParentingEven if you know what to do, that doesn’t mean you’ll actually do it when you need to.


When you face an unexpected challenge as a parent, you may not have time to think about what you’ve learned. You’ll only have time to react. You’ll automatically do what already feels familiar and comfortable.


That's because old habits are hard-wired in the brain, so you have to literally REWIRE your brain to create the new habits.

You get a proven PROCESS for creating positive habits. It's as easy as 1-2-3!


1. Choose ONE area to FOCUS on, and get tips, insights and ideas about what to do.


2. Take ACTION Apply one of the ideas in a real interaction with your teen.


3. REFLECT on what you tried, to get insights about what you can do differently next time.


And then you repeat this simple process over and over until the behavior you’re focused on feels natural.

How much time will it take?

Strong for Parenting  

Once you know your focus, you just need to spend about 5 minutes each day, looking for helpful tips, insights and ideas that you can apply. The real magic happens when you interact with your child!

Make getting your daily dose of Strong for Parenting a habit by doing it at the same time each day, such as with your morning cup of coffee.


"While I can’t have the personal support I need from friends and mentors 24/7, I can get that support via Strong for Parenting. It is there for me first thing in the morning, and it helps me get focused and be more productive during the day. I’ve used it to break free of self-inflicted limiting beliefs."
