Hey there!

I'm Jessalyn, author of Not Your Momma's Parenting Advice.

First, let me say how grateful I am that you've even made it this far to check out my book!

If you've gotten here, it is probably because you are struggling with a teen you love. I know that's hard and I'm here to help!

But first....

I want to take a minute and tell you why I wrote this book.

I have A LOT of experience with families and I have never met one without struggles in the area of conflict. This is something almost all parents deal with on some level.

And it's hard to get good advice on parenting teens because so much of what we are told about how to effectively parent teens is WRONG.

I wrote this book in an effort to empower parents to address their own familial problems. It is simply not true that you need someone to "fix" your family.

All you need are the right tools and resources to do it on your own.

This book is one of those tools. I also offer parent coaching to provide extra support and guidance to parents who are struggling with implementing what is in the book and parents whose struggles go beyond simple conflict between family members.

In my book you will...

I am also including 2 Bonus Trainings when you buy my book!

BONUS #1: 5 Ways to Build Trust with Your Teen: Use these tools to help you get started with re-building the trust you need with your teen. These are designed to be easy to use and easy to remember. Try one at a time, and then try to practice all five when you can!

BONUS #2: 3 Tips for Helping Your Teen Build Self-Esteem: One of the biggest problems teens face is self-esteem. Research shows teenagers struggle significantly in different ways with self-esteem. Most teens, at some point, experience self-esteem problems. This can lead to many issues including negative thoughts, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, self-harming, drug/alcohol use, and many other concerning behaviors. You know how amazing your kid is, but THEY DON’T SEE IT. This leads them to pursuing relationships that aren’t healthy and engaging in things they know are not a good idea. If they don’t know their worth, they make decisions that are not worthy of them.
