Independence comes with responsibility.
During the teenage years a child goes through a process called individuation, where they are gaining a clearer sense of self that is seperate from parents and others around them.
At the same time, their brain is reorganising itself in preparation for adulthood, sometimes resulting in impulsive and erratic behaviours, as well as hormonal changes that are affecting them emotionally too.
Parents are faced with a delicate balancing act of supporting their child to safely explore who they are, learn from their mistakes, but also stepping in when the child is not showing they are ready for the responsibility of independence.
The PSC understands the juggling act and helps parents to calmly and rationally navigate their way through these challenging years.

Our Happy Parents
I really want to thank u Donna and Jackie. I have recently completely the 28 Day Tame Your Temper Challenge and have been working my way through the MMCL Challenge.
Yesterday we had a day without any challenges from my son. The first since I can ever remember and he is now 11. We have also been discussing with him some issues that would normally set off a big tantrum and because we are communicating again without everyone shouting we have been able to resolve some things calmly by discussing them.
Please don’t think it’s perfect. We r still getting some back chat but since I have been ignoring this back chat and just responding well to the good bits and reminding him that I can’t hear him when he shouts and tantrums and it doesn’t get him his own way, things are really starting to improve.
My husband was starting to become a skeptic but promised he would continue to do it this way for now. And yesterday he said “You’re right Em. It’s really working. From 2 desperate parents. Thanku.
With the roadmap Jackie has given me, I feel equipped to appropriately address whatever gets thrown my way. The tools Jackie shares have been priceless and are grounded in sound science. I would highly recommend this program to any parent wishing for deeper connection with and understanding of their child and a smoother, more joy-filled existence.
Thanks so much Jackie. This has been transformational! I’ve really enjoyed your realistic, down to earth approach and candid videos, you deliver all this info in a way that people can really relate to. My mind has been blown repeatedly. I’m proud of the change I can feel in myself, and excited for the changes I can begin to see in my kids (and my husband)! Well done for creating such an amazing program. I truly believe you are doing such a wonderful thing for parents of future generations!!
