Parent's Guide to Preteens : Communicating through Connection

How to survive the preteen years

Over the years, I’ve had numerous conversations with friends and coaching clients and hear the same plea:

Why don't preteens come with a handbook?

And from there, this class was born. It seems like overnight our “babies” have grown into mini-adults, complete with the attitude to go with it! This class was designed for parents who want to not only survive the preteen years, but also establish the foundation for a strong lifelong relationship.


Do you find you’re clashing with you preteen over:

  • homework?
  • screen time?
  • chores & responsibilities?
  • rules, boundaries & punishments?

Maybe your child is acting out emotionally or has become distant or withdrawn?

Can you relate?


In this class, you will learn tools to help you:

  • pinpoint why your preteen’s behavior pushes your buttons
  • deconstruct your reactions and rebuild a support structure for your preteen
  • evaluate your current rules, boundaries and expectations
  • identify Sand vs. Stone boundaries that allow your preteen a voice
  • learn 3 easy steps to connecting with your preteen

This class is broken up into 3 Units consisting of 10-15 minutes of audio training and 5-10 minutes of work either with a worksheet, journal, free-writing or reflection. You can listen to each unit at your own pace, any time of the day (or night), whenever you can make the time and dedicate yourself to doing the work.

These proven strategies are based on Conscious Parenting principles, that will help you transform your communication with your preteen. These practices are easy to implement into your everyday interactions with your preteen and as a result you’ll open the lines of communication and begin a relationship that will extend into adulthood.


Here's what parents are saying about the class:

Kacey's course is a game changer for moms! I can't even begin to explain the eye-opening experiences I had being part of this course. I knew I didn't want to do everything exactly like my parents did, but I also had no idea where to begin or how to break some of my learned parenting patterns. Kacey makes the concepts of communication and loving boundaries accessible and meaningful. I literally sighed in relief when I realized that there are effective ways to communicate and build strong relationships with our kids, while minimizing the anger and frustration that I thought was "just part of parenting". If you have a pre-teen (or want to be prepared for one!), this course is the best investment you will make!~ Olivia (Mom of 2)

In Lesson 1, the analogy between the toddler on the playground and the preteens outbursts and our need to control our own emotion to diffuse situations, was really an eye opener. It is so easy to see how difficult it is for a toddler to control emotion, or look to their mother for guidance, but just as easy to forget the same thing goes for a preteen who is going through changes in a much different way, however just as difficult to navigate.~ Stacey (Mom of 2)
