What makes Christina different? Where is her passion coming from?
Let's face it - parenting a teenager is difficult.
Arguments and disrespect became unacceptable to Christina. Refusing to continue "business as usual" she set out to learn how to deal constructively with this age group.For the subsequent eight years, Christina began talking not only to her teenage daughter, but also to her daughter's friends as well as their parents. Word spread, and she eventually became a sought-after mediator between parents and their teens.
She methodically refined her findings and results, and applied these strategies as her youngest daughter went through her teenage years. Christina's techniques and extra effort paid excellent dividends in the form of a healthier, more supportive relationship with her youngest daughter.
"My daughter enjoyed her freedom, and still respected the rules and boundaries I set," Christina says. "I was at her side when she turned from a girl to a young lady, enjoying and experiencing changes and accomplishments - and so can you!"
Christina's proven strategies, comprised of more than 14 years of working with parents and their teenagers, are outlined in her book Help Me With My Teenager! A Step-by-Step Guide For Parents That Works.
She has helped hundreds of parents who are struggling with the same issues she did, in person as well as through her book. Christina has appeared in podcasts and has been featured in many newspapers and magazines.
