How many times have you heard being the parent of a teen is terrifying and difficult at the same time? There is hope and help.
Cameron (Dr. Cam) Caswell, PhD brings a wealth of information and experience to the table. She has a doctorate in developmental psychology, over 15 years coaching parents and mentoring teens, a certification in professional life coaching, and taught adolescent psychology at George Mason University. She’s also a mom of a teen too, so she not only talks the talk, she walks the walk!
“Teens act out because they feel misunderstood. Teens feel misunderstood because they ARE misunderstood. When we learn to understand our teens, we can remove their need to act out. We’re able to change our focus from reining them in to raising them up.”
Dr. Cam’s passion and purpose is to inspire and challenge families facing everyday problems to re-imagine their family dynamic and build a happier, healthier home life. Her belief is that teens act out when they feel misunderstood. And teens feel misunderstood because they are misunderstood.
In her bi-weekly podcast, Welcome to Parenting Teens with Dr. Cam, she guides you around the teenage land minds with practical tips, simple solutions, and words of encouragement. She’s also joined by experts, authors, parents, teens, and many other amazing guests.
In this episode with Jill Devine, Dr. Cam gives practical advice on how to navigate the teen years. She also provides examples on how we can start teaching ownership to young kids, so it helps set the kids up for success in their teen years.
Jill would like to acknowledge and recognize the hard work moms put in on the daily. It can be a thankless job at times, and Jill wants these moms to know their worth, so she created the Supermom Shoutout, brought to you by Addy’s Way. Each recipient will receive a custom designed Supermom tote from Addy’s Way, in addition to the Shoutout. This week’s Supermom Shoutout goes to Sarah of San Antonino, Texas. Her mother, Deb, nominated her and said:
My daughter, Sarah, has given up so much to provide for her four beautiful children. The last time she had a haircut at a salon was ten years ago and only because she was donating it to “Locks of Love.” I’m beyond proud of this Supermom.
Sarah - YOU are seen and YOU are supported!
To nominate a Supermom (or you can nominate yourself) email firstname.lastname@example.org. Submit the name of the Supermom, where they're from, and a brief description as to why Jill should shout out this particular Supermom.
