The Benefits Of Parent And Teen Coaching

Parents:Do you feel like your teen or pre-teen is a complete stranger?Have the lines of communication been severed?Is your teen making poor choices or struggling in school?Do you feel all hope is gone?Are you running out of options?There is HOPE!Today many pre-teens and teens are more attached to their peers and to the peer culture than they are to their own families. Many are making poor decisions that negatively effect their lives, and yours.What can parents do to prevent the diminishing attachments between themselves and their kids?How can parents create a world at home that allows kids to feel a “connectedness” that they more readily create with their peers?Is it possible to reconnect?YES!Many of today’s kids have been thrust into a blended family situation that might not be blending so well. When families merge together there is an incredible amount of change and with change comes resistance. Adjusting to two part-time environments can be very difficult for kids.Is it possible to create peace in an environment filled with anger and blame?YES!The fact is … many of today’s parents were raised in homes where they felt silenced, like they didn’t measure up and that’s not what they wanted for their child. Yet they struggle to find ways to open the lines of communication with their teen. As a result many parents have lost hope.It is time to Stop – Take a Breath – and Reassess!With the support of a skilled coach parents and teens can coexist in an environment rooted in Trust, Support, Respect, and Understanding – an environment free of punishment and undeserved guilt.Coaching creates:Harmony when once there was DiscordJoy when once there was DespairPeace of mind when once there was ConfusionParents can increase awareness to their own power to choose thoughts and behaviors and learn to ask themselves:”Am I choosing to do something that will increase the distance between me and my child?”or”Is what I am about to do going to pull me closer to or push me further away from my child?”By making the shift to Appreciate – Understand – Support – Respect our children and our spouses, teens and pre-teens can experience healthy connections in the home with parents and outside the home with their peers.Kids mean more to parents than anything else in this world! As parents there is little time left before their teens leave home, little time to reconnect and save them from years of wondering, “Did I do all I could have done? Could I have done more to create a closer relationship with my teen?” Time with teens is precious, let’s not waste it! What you do today could pave the path to a wonderful, loving, meaningful relationship with your child that will take you through all the days of your lives.Parents, there is an Option, THERE IS HOPE! Coaching produces measurable results!Parents have the power to make things different, to change patterns, to create harmony in their own homes.When parents lose hope and consider placing their child or teen in a program, I suggest they:Stop – Take a Breath – and Reassess!While some parents have found programs to be of benefit, some have found it only made matters worse. The Troubled Child/Teen Help industry is unregulated, it has no standards or guidelines, there is no Federal governmental oversight, and anyone can open a program for kids.Let us learn from the experience of others who have said, “If I knew then what I know now I would never have sent my teen away!”Since each family has its’ own unique situation and no two families are alike, coaching is a great alternative that gives parents power to parent their teens and to create the home and family they so desperately desire!My philosophy:I believe that within each parent lies the Power to effectively and lovingly parent their teens and pre-teens. And within each Teen lies the Power to be productive, caring, and loving members of their family.Coaching is anchored on the belief that people are Creative, Resourceful, and Whole, and that within each of us lies the Power to reach our full potential. Once we are able to Unleash that Power we can achieve our own personal, self-defined outcomes.Coaching is an ongoing Partnership. It is a Journey to Discover who you are and who you truly want to be. It is a Process that produces Profound, Measurable Results. Clients come to coaching because they are looking for Change or have important Goals they hope to attain.Coaching creates Harmony when once there was Discord – Joy when once there was Despair – Peace of mind when once there was Confusion.Most people strive for a better quality of life. They want more Joy and more Quality Time with their Children and Teens. Coaching can help them Unleash the Power Within so they attain their Goals and Dreams!

Indoor Volleyball Guide

Indoor Volleyball is played by 6 people on a court at one time. The court is 18 metres by 9 metres, split in half by a net running through the middle. Both sides have an attack line, which any back row players are not allowed to jump in front of. Indoor Volleyball requires a number of skills that are unique to Volleyball. Of course, general fitness is where the sports cross over, but in general Volleyball is very unique! Volleyball is usually split into male and female teams, although if you are doing it for a social activity there is no reason why it has to be split up!Generally 2 or 3 people sit on the bench during a game of Volleyball and they are rotated on as required. In professional games of Volleyball, often there is 4 or 5 people on the bench. The equipment used in Volleyball is largely provided by your school, club or association that you are playing for. The only equipment required by players is the Volleyball Attire (shirt, shorts, socks, shoes) and many players wear Volleyball Shoes, ankle braces and knee pads.Volleyball is a relatively cheap sport to play, and yet it is incredibly good fun. You can buy Cheap Volleyballs without spending a huge amount of money and get a lot of enjoyment out of them. Volleyball is a sport where height is favored, but there are many skills which can outweigh this if you are not tall! I have enjoyed playing Volleyball for many years now, and like millions of other people I fully recommend it!
