Don't Live With the Frustration and Stress of Parenting an Unmotivated Teenager Any Longer

Learn how to unlock your teenagers motivation even if you feel like it is a lost cause!

Parenting an unmotivated teenager is stressful and exhausting.

You have promising, lovable teenager, who has been a pretty good kid, and still is. But there is a problem that is starting to dominate everything else...

Your teenager is unmotivated!

Not just a bit lazy, or slightly distracted. No, your teenager is chronically unmotivated to the point that you are worried it is going to limit the options they will have in the future.

You have tried everything.

You have given them freedom to manage things and you have tried managing things for them. You have offered them rewards, issued consequences, explained the significance of what is at stake, asked them nicely, threatened them, and even pleaded with them to "at least just try!"

But nothing seems to work.

And it’s so frustrating because you know your teenager has loads of potential! If only they would just put in the effort.

But it feels impossible to get through to them and make them see sense. And the more you try the worse things get  between the two of you.

Instead of enjoying watching your child develop into the adult you always hoped, you are left stressing about their future and wondering what you are doing wrong as a parent.

You want to give up, but you can't because they are you child and you want them to have the best possible chance of life.

It doesn't have to be this way!

You can learn how to turn around, even if you feel like giving up.

Here’s what people are saying about the course

Here is what some of the parents who have done the course have said about it. They were all feeling stressed and helpless about their teenager when they started

Lynn Holloway

Texas, USA

I can't say enough about the comprehensiveness and usefulness of this material. From the opening lesson all the way to the end Chris challenges the common and erroneous beliefs we have about teenagers in general but specifically with regards to motivation. The material is very optimistic and valuable . It is something that I will grow into as I change the way I think and the way I parent and I can already see an Improvement in the way my daughter approaches school this year . Chris is a very clear and effective communicator and has much wisdom to offer any parent in general that has a teen but specifically one that has a teen that seems lost, unmotivated or stuck.

Kate Babb

Granada, Spain

This course has completely changed my relationship with my teenage son in just a few months. The course is actually about us, the parents, being aware of how we treat our kids and the many, many common mistakes we make every day without even realising it! For me, the course was about learning to see my son on his own terms for the first time, instead of forcing my own ideas, preconceptions and values on to him. I learned the different types of motivation, how they work and how and when to use them. Chris explains all the concepts with total clarity and give examples that, as parents, we can all relate to. I found the course fascinating but also had to face some hard truths about how I was behaving with my son. I am now able to see things from his angle and really listen to him. As a result, after just a few months, our relationship has gone from tense, defensive and uncommunicative, to relaxed and open, where we share things, chat to each other and spend quality time together...I highly recommend this course to any parent who is despair of motivating their teen or having a good relationship with them. It really will change your lives!

Leanne Trip

Motivating Teenagers really helped me get in touch with my fears and agendas for my teen. This was an invaluable insight as it truly enlightened my teens individual and unique path. It brought to the light what I was doing to block communication and opened up the dialogue. And, the session on chores and reframing worked exceptionally well. It’s been insightful. Our teens can teach us so much about ourselves when we dare to be truly present and listen to their voice while quietening our own. Thank you.:)

What’s in the Course?

The course comprises of 6 easy to follow modules, that make it easy for you to help your teenager find their own drive and focus in life.


Module 1: The Secret of Your Unmotivated Teenager

In this very first module you will discover the why common assumptions and strategies for motivating teenagers are at best ineffective and at worst actually damaging to a teenager and their desire to change. Lessons include "Why You Cannot Motivate Your Teenager" and "How Your Teenager is Already Motivated."


Module 2: 3 Things Every Motivated Teen Needs

In module 2 you will discover the conditions teenagers require to develop lasting self-motivation. Research has shown that for people of any age to desire and effect change they need 3 things; Autonomy, Competence, & Relationships. This module shows how as parents you can provide this for your teenager, and what types of parenting inhibit  these things occurring.


Module 3: Change Blockers - The Enemies of Motivation

Even with your focus on providing your teenager with what they need to be motivated, there can still be specific issues that can block or be a barrier to teenager's making changes. So in module 3 you will learn about the most common types of blocks that prevent teenagers from being self-motivated.


Module 4: Helping Your Teen Overcome Ambivalence

In module 4 we focus solely on how to help your teenager overcome ambivalence. In Module 3 you would have learnt that ambivalence is the most common and in some ways complex obstacle to change. This module walks you through a 3 step process that you can follow to help your teenager resolve their abivalence and make progress in positive direction.


Module 5: Strategies for Solving Your Teen's Change Blockers

Explain exactly what this module will teach them, and use names of individual lessons if you can. You might want to include the number of lessons, the length of each lesson, or any other information. But make sure you focus on the benefits that the customer would get just by taking this module on it’s own


Module 6: How & When To Used External Motivation

In the last module you will learn when and how to effectively use extrinsic motivational tactics with your teenager. There are lots of ways this can be done, and although most of the course is focused on your teenager's internal drivers for change, there is definitely a place for strategic use of external motivators when parenting teenagers.

Wish I Knew This Sooner!

Since I got the course material, I have been finding excuses to read. After viewing the material I am filled with regrets asking myself how come this was not available when my child was 14. We work so hard on correcting our kids but at time it is we the parents who need to correct. This course has helped me evaluate my parenting style and find less complains about my teen.

A Note From Chris

Hi there, and thanks for reading (or skimming) this far down the page. This course is something I am proud of, mainly because I know it works and I have seen the relief in parent's faces when their teenager has turned the corner. My sincere hope is that by doing this course, you and your teenager can discover and realise a whole world of possibilities.

I hope it helps.
