When Palmer was 14, he told me he wanted to jump off a cliff in a squirrel suit


Palmer: Mom, sometimes I get on my bike late at night and ride down the middle of the street with no shirt on. Oh, and can I skydive for my 16th birthday?

Kerry: Do you really think you’re immune to broken bones and bleeding?

Palmer: It’s not going to happen to me.

Kerry: I wrote in my journal that night:

“It is FRIGGIN’ TERRIFYING raising teenage boys.

As a parent of a teen, you are no longer in control of their destiny. At least it feels that way sometimes. They think they know best. And you know you know best.

And that’s why raising a teen is tough. It doesn’t come with a manual. As you can see, we have no shortage of death-defying stories that involve Kerry praying nightly for her son to make it to 17.”

That’s why we’re here to help you forge the relationship with your teen that you want.
Loving. Respectful. Empathetic. Fun. And close.

About Kerry

As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Parent Educator, Public Speaker, and Clinical Supervisor, I’ve dedicated my life to helping parents be the best version of themselves so that their children feel seen, cherished, and loved.

I have 3 boys, and am the stepmom of 2 boys and a girl. When it comes to raising kids, especially navigating the teen years, your mental health is important. And it’s easy for that to fall by the wayside if you’re giving, giving, giving, to a teen who won’t budge.
Let’s work together to help your teen feel closer to you. It’s time to create a loving relationship that brings the family together.

About Palmer

Hi there! I’m a 25-year-old Teen Success Coach who attends Northwestern University’s Graduate School of Marriage and Family Therapy. And I have to tell you a little secret.

I was ‘that kid.’ The one who broke rules for the fun of it and rebelled (hard!) against his parents. I have ADHD and a knack for creating mischief. Sometimes I marvel that I survived some of those crazy teen-year decisions that I made.

After a big interruption in life, I made it my life’s work to help teen boys navigate their path through adolescence with success and better decisions.
