ParenT(w)een Connection Talks How to Live with Discomfort with Kat Reese
Kat Reese, Life Coach: I began working with kids while attending college. I knew I wanted to help people find their purpose because I wished someone would have helped me. As a teen, I always struggled with knowing if I was making the right decisions and having someone to help me through the tough times. After years of working with children and their families, I got my Master’s in Psychology, emphasis on Life Coaching. I have been trained in many modalities to help people recognize what their body is telling them and how to use those messages to guide them down the right path. I have helped kids become independent in their environment and helped build their self-confidence to go after their goals. https://embracechangewithkat.com/
About ParenT(w)een Connection
When friends of Joe & Clarissa Constantine were going through a REALLY tough patch with their then-15-year-old daughter, the mom said, 'I just wish I had other parents to talk to.' It was like a lightning bolt for Clarissa, and The ParenT(w)een Connection was born. We launched a Facebook group and within a few days had over 100 parents join - talk about proof of concept! We knew we had the potential to make a huge global impact and went to the drawing board to sketch out a vision.
As it stands today, we have four unique but interwoven segments:
Trusted Expert Network: Think Angie's List, but specifically featuring professionals who support families with kids between the ages of 10 and 20. If you're a parent, browse the listings to find professionals who can support you. If you're a professional, join what will become the world's largest network geared toward connecting you with other professionals who support the same clients.
ParenT(w)een University: Joining our Facebook group is a GREAT first step! And when you're ready for more - more community, more support, more education - then it's time to 'enroll' in ParenT(w)een University. We'll eventually have ParenT(w)een University 101 through 401, and we'll build the 'school' as we grow.
Local Communities: It's one thing to connect with other parents online; it's another to be able to get together in person and build even more supportive relationships. Our local communities & events will be managed by local professionals who are dedicated to cultivating relationships with parents & other professionals in their geographical area.
ParenT(w)een Foundation: It's one thing to say, 'Hey, look at all these awesome professionals who can help you & your family.' But if finances are an obstacle to working with these pros, that's not okay in our book. We want to help you get the help you need. We're in the processing of establishing our Foundation, so stay tuned!
As we grow, it's our mission to help families avoid many of the difficulties we experienced. We want to give parents a safe place to connect with each other. We want to help you find trusted experts who can help you when you just don't know what to do on your own. We want to give you different ways to connect with your kids so you can have awesome relationships with them. We believe that the better your relationship is with the kids in your life, the happier you'll all be - and the fewer kids we'll lose to suicide.
