Help for Parents With Strong-Willed, Out-of-Control Teens

Anderson, Indiana (PressExposure) April 08, 2007 -- The problem is that most parents of strong-willed, out of control teenagers have tried very hard to regain control -- but with little or no success. And it seems the harder the parent tries, the more the teenager "acts-out."

I often hear the following statement from parents: "I've tried everything with this child -- and nothing works!" But when they attend my parent-program, they soon discover they have not tried everything, rather they have tried some things.

Now there is an online version of the parent-program for working parents who are struggling with their out-of-control teenagers, and you will experience the same success as those who attend the program in person.

You will learn cut-to-the-chase parenting strategies that work immediately rather than months or years down the road. And I guarantee your success or you get your money back -- and you can keep the package I am about to offer you. This is how confident I am that the online version of the parent-program is going to work for you. The online version is called Online Parent Support (OPS).

OPS includes My Out-Of-Control Teen eBook (a digital book). In this book, I share over 150 proven techniques to use with your strong-willed, out-of-control teenager. If parents don't have these techniques, all they are left with are conventional parenting techniques. And as they may have discovered, conventional techniques don't work with unconventional teenagers.

Believe it or not, your child doesn't need counseling. You don't need parenting classes. You don't need -- nor would you want -- a 250-page manual on how to be a better parent. Who has time for that? And you don't need to go through another year of pain and misery with rebellious, foul-mouthed teenagers with an "attitude."

However, what you may need is someone who has worked with troubled teens and frustrated parents for nearly 20 years -- and does so for a living -- to show you a set of very effective parenting techniques that are guaranteed to work. That would be me, Mark Huttenlocker.

Whether you have big problems or small problems, teens or pre-teens, whether you are a Single Parent, Divorced or Separated Parent, Adoptive Parent, Foster Parent, Step Parent, a Traditional Two Parent family, or a Grandparent raising a Grandchild -- this material is guaranteed to work for you.

Initially, the parents who attend my parent-program (the same program you'll get with Online Parent Support) are at their "wit's end" and describe home-life as "hell's kitchen."

A few short weeks after they complete the program (which is divided into 4 sessions, 90 minutes each session), the majority of parents report that problems in their homes have reduced in frequency and severity and are finally manageable.

You'll be pleasantly surprised at how simple it is to get started with these non-traditional parenting strategies. Whenever you have a couple spare moments sitting at your computer, you can see how to bring about positive change in your household...

...change that will reduce parent-child conflict;

...change that will reduce your stress-level significantly;

...change that will increase the likelihood that your child will be a success -- both at school and in life.

Online Parent Support is all about:

1. Serving people, specifically parents who are at a point of frustration with their child's emotional/behavioral problems and resultant parent-child conflict

2. Providing an invaluable product that everyone can afford

3. Providing a parenting-package that continues to grow over time by incorporating additional products and services at no extra cost to existing members

When parents have finally had enough disrespect and behavior problems with their child, they come to my office to file an incorrigibility charge (i.e., a legal complaint due to the child being unruly and delinquent in the home).

At this point, I ask the parent, "Would you be willing to try something else first before we consider filing the charge." And most parents agree they would rather not involve their child in the "juvenile justice system" unless they absolutely have to.

So I get the parent involved in my parent-program called Parent-Teen Support Group. In this group, which meets 90 minutes each session for 4 sessions, we look at a set of highly effective unconventional parenting strategies to use with their strong-willed, out-of-control unconventional child.

I follow up with these parents weeks and months after they complete programming, and 85% to 95% of parents:

(a) are able to avoid involving their child in the court system

(b) report that problems in the home and school have reduced in frequency and severity

(c) report that the few remaining problems are manageable

Now the Parent-Teen Support Group is available to you. And you don't even have to leave your house to participate.

Your child's behavior is never going to be perfect, but it can be a whole lot better than it is now.

Online Parent Support (OPS) is a program designed specifically for parents of strong-willed or out-of-control adolescent children. OPS provides the practical and emotional support parents need to change destructive adolescent behavior.

The straightforward, step-by-step action plans presented in the curriculum allow parents to take immediate steps toward preventing or intervening in their children's negative choices. Parents involved with OPS have the opportunity to experience success at home within the first week.

The curriculum teaches concrete prevention, identification, and intervention strategies for the most destructive of adolescent behaviors. Parents cycle through programming quickly, thus reducing the length of time that (a) effective solutions in parenting are implemented and (b) resultant positive change in adolescent behavior is experienced.

Here is a partial list of typical parenting strategies. Parents have found these strategies to have little or no effect on their out-of-control child's behavior:

==> Trying to "reason" with the child

==> Having "heart-to-heart" talks

==> Confrontation or being "assertive"

==> Grounding

==> Taking away privileges

==> Time-outs

==> Counseling

==> Having the child go live with his/her other parent (if parents are separated or divorced)

==> Trying to be a nicer parent

==> Trying to be a tougher parent

==> Having another family member "reason" with the child (e.g., aunt or uncle)

==> "Giving in" and letting the child have her/his way

==> Verbal warnings

==> Ignoring misbehavior, and so on...

Your out of control children will NEVER work for what YOU want. But will they work for what THEY want? Yes. And I'll show you how!

Does your child often lose his temper, argue with adults, refuse to comply with rules and requests, deliberately annoy people, blame others for his mistakes and misbehavior?

Is your child often touchy and easily annoyed by others, angry and resentful, spiteful and vindictive?

Is your child in charge (the tail is wagging the dog)?

Does she have an "attitude" -- 24 hours a day, 7 days a week?

Is she resentful about something that happened in the past -- and just can't seem to get over it?

Are you concerned that your child is having unprotected sex, hanging with the wrong crowd, or experimenting with drugs or alcohol?

Has your child lied to you, stolen from you, skipped school, destroyed property, run away from home, had a brush with the law, refused to follow any rules, or stayed out at night without permission?

If so, how much longer will you tolerate the dishonesty and disrespect? How many more temper tantrums and arguments will you endure? Haven't you already wasted too much time and energy trying to make your child change?

Take action now. This is YOUR chance to get the "child-problems" turned around, once and for all -- problems that are wearing and tearing at your physical and mental health -- problems that have probably gone on for years.
