“Ravid & Kirsten saved my relationship with my teens! …With Ravid & Kirsten’s focus on connection over correction, I was able to relax and reconnect with my teens! Parents are allowed a safe place to show their struggles!
You will not only gain insights into your relationship with your teen, you will gain insights into yourself as a parent.
I am more relaxed and having way more fun with my terrific teens! This class is an A+!!!!”
– JB, mother of two teens, CA

You are a good parent. Your tween/ teen is a good kid. Really.

But it can be hard to remember when…

Snuggles on the couch have been replaced by shouting and slammed doors.
They are angry more often than not, you are rarely sure why, and they’re convinced it’s your fault.

They are preoccupied with their friends and phones and have little interest in you or other members of the family.

They are mortified to have you drop them off at school, yet expect you to be on call at a moment’s notice.

Their behavior can seem erratic and unpredictable.

They have trouble concentrating on the tasks (school, chores) before them and cooperation seems unattainable.

The distance between you and your child seems to be getting bigger.

No matter how hard you try, you can easily lose your cool or become distant yourself.

This course will help you build strong bridges between you and your t(w)een that will sustain you well beyond any upcoming storms in your relationship. It will give you support to navigate your own feelings of frustration, confusion, and hurt. It will help you find ways to stay thoughtful and stand by them, no matter what, through the worst of their feelings (and ours.)

“Ravid and Kirsten create a wonderful safe space, with other wonderful parents, that allows me to feel supported in a way I never have before in my parenting. This helps me to feel stronger and more resourced so that I have good capacity for playfulness and fun and to be the kind of Mum I want to be more of the time. Thank you both! I’m so grateful.”
– MW, mother of two teens, UK

This interactive course includes:

  • A weekly mentored call with Ravid and Kirsten, with a small group of parents. You will get practical, emotional support and tips for the challenges and feelings that arise when parenting a t(w)eens.
  • Brain science, developmental information, and insights that will help you to understand your t(w)een’s behavior and emotions.
  • Five life-changing tools that enable you to reach your t(w)een and make your relationship stronger and more meaningful.
  • Access to an online classroom with loads of videos and reading materials that you can refer back to as long as you like. They are yours to keep after the course is over.
  • The support YOU need and deserve in order to be able to see and remember the goodness of your child again and to navigate your relationship with more confidence.
  • Real life examples from the mentors that will help bring the ideas we are sharing to life for you… We really HAVE been there with our own kids!
  • Time to put into practice what you are learning, ask questions, and get feedback and suggestions to deepen your understanding of the tools.
  • A discussion thread where you’ll share triumphs, struggles, questions, and get feedback.

We are, Ravid, mother of two daughters (20 and 25), and Kirsten, mother of two sons (18 and 24.) We both raised our children from their early years, through adolescence, and beyond using the Hand in Hand tools. This approach helped us stay sane through the storms of those years. Our families would not be the same without the knowledge and support that this approach gave us.

Our wish is to share this with you.

“Ravid and Kirsten provide a space for me each week in the skill-building class for tweens and teens where I feel that I am getting parented in order to parent my children! In this weekly space, I receive warmth, empathy, connection, compassion, attuned and attentive listening and insightful wisdom – all the emotional nutrition I need in order to provide that for my children! The community of parents in the group also gives me this. I feel less alone in my parenting and I feel that shared bond and community, experiencing their support and also knowing that I am not the only one to have these struggles. Ravid and Kirsten are full of experience, wisdom, insight and kindness – highly, highly recommend!”
– Dr. KP, mother of two, UK
