8 Things to Stop Doing for Your Kids Before They Turn 18
In the wake of the college admissions scandal, everyone’s talking about “snowplow,” “lawnmower,” or “drone” parents who prevent their kids from learning from failure. To avoid too much “snowplowing” in your parenting style, check out our blog on 8 things to stop doing for your kids before they turn 10.
Dr. Christopher J. Sample, Psy.D.
Specialization: Men & Teenage Boys, Relationships
Dr. Sample specializes in supporting guys of all ages through tough life transitions. Men face a variety of unique obstacles throughout their lives, and Dr. Sample is experienced in helping men cope with challenges such as:
Marriage, divorce, relationship, and dating issues
Work stress and climbing the corporate ladder
Financial stress and the burden of providing for a family
Balancing roles of friend, family man, and professional
Self-esteem and identity
Drug, alcohol, sex, or gaming addiction
Veteran’s issues including PTSD
Young adulthood and independence
While a lot of guys could use some extra support in dealing with life’s stressors, many men have a hard time opening up about personal challenges. Dr. Sample understands the unique perspectives and obstacles that men face and provides a safe and comfortable place to overcome and work through difficult issues. Dr. Sample not only helps his clients build awareness around what they are thinking and feeling, but also learn the coping tools necessary to combat whatever may be holding them back. Dr. Sample knows about the pressures society puts upon men to not show emotion and to figure things out on their own rather than ask for help. It actually takes more courage to admit to oneself that something is not right in one’s life and reach out to a professional to overcome it than it is to deny that a problem exists, make no changes, and continue to live a life unfulfilled. If you are looking for change, a deeper understanding of who you are, or seek to achieve your full potential, feel free to call to see if Dr. Sample is a good fit for you.
