Parents, Coaches and Teachers, what tools do you have in your tool belt to manage phones and behaviour with your teens?
As a parent, I get it – it’s hard getting along with our kids during their teen years.

Raising kids is super complicated today with phones and all this tech, I understand. I had to find balance for my 3 children and an academy of athletes. Many kids today are struggling with SELF DOUBT, CONFIDENCE and lack of MENTAL SKILLS. With my “10 STEP SCREEN ROUTINES, your kids can thrive and decrease phone use. Let’s teach resilience and watch them become unstoppable.

That’s why I was so thrilled when my friend (and parent of two teens) Rocco Luisi told me he was hosting an interview series all around this topic. Rocco and his wife have been struggling to parent their two teen boys, so he decided to take on a research (and passion) project to learn the approaches that top experts on parenting teens are taking to raise great human beings and diffuse household conflict.

This research project has turned into an interview series, where he is interviewing ten other parenting experts (including me!).

The Summit is called: Overcoming Teen Angst: How to stop fighting with your teens so your family can achieve mammoth improvements in happiness, calmness and relationships.

I have a complementary ticket for you to attend. You can register using this link: https://tiny.one/LarissaMills. Just so you know, you will be able to watch from your home, office or on the go.  It will be broadcast live on November 22, 2022 at 10am. 

This Summit is for parents who want to experience a happier home and improve their relationship with their teens by learning how to communicate better, get out of power struggles and stay grounded when our teens trigger us.

Here’s some of what’s going to be covered in the video interviews:

  • How to get your teens to tell you everything.
  • How to communicate with your teens.
  • How to get out of power struggles.
  • How to handle cell phone and electronics usage.
  • How to stay grounded when your teen triggers you.

These interviews are REAL, short and to the point CONVERSATIONS with experts who have helped parents just like you have better relationships with their teens.  The experts, topics and bios are below.

SO let me ask you this: what would it be worth to you to be able to sit at the feet of ten parenting experts who are improving parent-teen relationships all around the world to find out how they are doing it?

For me, it’s worth A LOT, which is why I will not only be a speaker, but I’ll be attending to.

“Why are you not taking care of your mental health as much as your physical health?”

No one ever asked me this before.  It wasn’t until I was struggling and it showed on the field that I realised that I needed help.  Not knowing who to ask or where to go added to the stress.  Then I heard about the Mental Game Academy.
