Life Coaching for Teens and Parents
April 21, 2015
Hosted by Virginia L. Colin, Ph.D.
Raising teenagers brings challenges for many parents. Being an adolescent comes with built-in challenges for teens. The same goes for being relevant and effective as a dad or a mom, for co-parenting after divorce, and for raising happy, well-adjusted children of any age. Working as a compassionate parenting coach and life coach, ShaRon Rea empowers teens, men, and women with insights that lead to enjoying happier, more fulfilling relationships and lives. We will discuss both what she has learned while coaching family members and the global movement she founded: No Judgment. Just Love.™ ShaRon helps people move from negative to positive and treat each other with respect and dignity. Her websites are http://www.thewholefamilycoaching.com and http://www.nojudgmentjustlove.com. Her books include “Activity and Inspiration Book for Parents of Preteens & Teens” and “The Whole Family Healing After Divorce – Activity and Inspiration Book.”
