S04|14 - How to Connect with Your Teens with Ben Pugh

May 30, 2022

Ben Pugh is a certified life coach who specializes in helping parents build meaningful relationships with their teens, WITHOUT having to change the teens! He helps parents and teens reconnect, build rock-solid relationships, and turn struggles into strengths.  He currently has a membership for parents and teens at The doors will be open from May 30-June 5.

Ben has spent his life working with teenagers and their parents. He was a foster parent for 10 years and spent 10 years in education, including five years as a high school principal. He is also the host of the popular podcast, IMPACT: Parenting with Perspective.

What we talk about today:

  • How Ben went from lighting a school bus on fire to high school principal
  • How connection affects every area of your parenting/self
  • What to do when you don’t feel connected to your teens
  • How catastrophizing stops us from connecting
  • How to be the change you want to see in your teen, and drop control
