Boundaries, Parties, Lying and Me

Looking back at my normal

When a teenager doesn't understand why a boundary is in place, it can feel like a restriction and indicative of a lack of trust. If you cross that boundary there is a rule. Yet, without understanding of why a boundary is in place, teens see a boundary as a challenge to be pushed against. How does that combine with parties, drugs and alcohol? 

​What kind of teenager do you want? One that ticks all the boxes in front of you but is doing it all behind your back? If you would like to listen to other audios that relate to boundaries and how to parent through some of the challenging times, listen to this interview with Mary-Jo McVeigh


Have you ever found the 'rule book' doesn't fit your child or family. So did we. So we decided to make a website that offered practical skills to build a way of living that could be responsive to whatever might present itself in family life.

That way rather than needing a 'rule book' there is a sense of being equipped to deal with whatever situation is in front of you.
