Parenting Support - Just for You

The SPS Blog — Just for You — contains practical coaching tips and advise for parents of teens and young adults. (PS: There's tons of good info for any parent who wants to learn, grow and hone their parenting skills.)


Let’s face it, when you have a struggling teen or young adult, the holiday season is just not what it used to be.  We see many trends, challenges and successes through our transitional work with families when it comes to thriving during the holiday season.

There are many concerns surrounding how the holiday will play out, how to manage emotions how to make decisions that will support the whole family system.

Although this article is geared towards ways wilderness and residential professionals can help ease the transition for families, we also wanted the families in our Solutions Parenting Support community to know the work involved on the end of the professionals during this pivotal time. In an effort to continue collaborating on ways to guide parents in the treatment process, we want to share with the wilderness and treatment professionals, in our community, another prevalent theme we are witnessing with the parents we coach.
