Thank you so much for agreeing to be a guest on Raising Resilient Teens. I absolutely cannot wait to speak with you. Before we do, here’s everything you need to know to make sure our conversation can happen without any mishaps — technological or otherwise.

Raising Resilient Teens is focused on helping our young adults survive and thrive, because…Surprise! Your kids are different from you!

They’re growing up in a different world; one with more complexity and an overwhelming number of choices. Their education supports a lot of learning and information, yet limited life skills. What impact is this having on their ability to evolve as successful adults? What can you do as a parent to help?

Join us and help prepare your teen to one day ‘leave the nest’ and confidently embrace the challenges and triumphs of adulthood.

The interview

We will record our interview on Skype, and it’ll take about 45-60 minutes of your time, depending on how in depth we get with our conversation. We’ll talk for a few minutes before we start the recording so that we can get to know each other a little bit and check the sound. I’ll also answer any questions you might have, and I’ll have you pronounce your name for me. After that, we’ll begin the recording.
