Are You Ready to Send Your Teen Back to School?

Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!”

~Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

A Little About Joey!

Joey has been working with teens ever since he was one.

Currently, he is a middle school teacher and counselor. Joey has also been a high school teacher, Sunday school teacher, seminary teacher, and teen improv instructor. He has professional training in acting for the stage, a Bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing, and a Master’s in Education.

Now, as a certified Life Coach, Joey works with teens on developing crucial life skills that aren’t taught in schools. Using his background in comedy, storytelling, and performance, he produces a podcast and videos to help teens learn tools and techniques to help them choose happiness and achieve at high levels. 

3 Back to School Tips.

  1. Give your teen options
    • Give them choices
    • Actually let them choose.
    • Don’t just give them the “allusion of choice.”
  2. Enforce consequences and boundaries with emotional control.
  3. If your teen is doing something you don’t want them to be doing, you’re letting them do it.
    • Teens are data collectors.
    • they’re trying to find the boundaries and ways around them.
    • You cannot control your teen, but you can control how you enforce your boundaries.
    • What you tolerate, you allow.
  4. Listen, really listen to your teen.
    • Listen in a way that they can hear you listening.
    • Find the right way.
      • go on a drive
      • play a video game
    • show them that you are listening.
