For Parents of Teens Wanting To Know How to Discuss The Challenges of Social Media:
Up to 95% of youth ages 13-17 report using a social media platform. More than a third say they use social media almost constantly.
Here are what parents are worried about:
- Your teenager not having responsible online behavior and not coming to their parent if they were exposed to inappropriate content, cyberbullying, or online harassment.
- Your teen struggling with setting limits and establishing healthy boundaries for social media use, as well as find a balance between allowing themselves to enjoy online activities and ensure they focus on other important aspects of their lives.
- Your teenager exposed to carefully curated and idealized versions of others' lives on social media that has the potential to negatively affect your teen's mental health, leading to feelings of inadequacy, low self-esteem, and anxiety.
- Your teen's social media and digital footprint and how it could potentially impact their educational or professional opportunities in the future.
I am a parent coach specialist with nearly 11 years experience in the mental health industry. I have a license to practice marriage and family therapy in the state of California. My greatest passion is working with parents and teens on closing the gap in their relationship and building lifelong connection.
I founded Illuminate Your Connection, a parent coaching service to serve parents of teenagers who are struggling with illuminating the path to connect with their teen. I help parents wanting a better relationship with their teenagers and are looking for effective and practical strategies and tools to feel confident while doing it.
I know first hand how difficult the teenage years were and wanting to be loved and feel connected with my own parents.
That is why it is so important for me to help teenagers in my therapy practice build the skills to have healthy relationships and to coach parents in becoming their teen's trusted guide and hero.
Hi, I'm Ashley and I'm a Parent Coach for Parents of Teenagers
Why is it that every time you walk into a restaurant, you are noticing more kids and parents on their phones checking and interacting on social media instead of connecting in person?
In this era, we are the most loneliest and isolated we have ever been, yet the most connected digitally than ever before.
Most parents feel powerless, defeated, and ill-equipped with how to discuss social media with their teen and help their teenager navigate the digital world.
You are not alone!
