This group was inspired by the experiences we had on the playground when we were kids.
Through play and interactions with others we learned:
How to connect with others
What we enjoyed and maybe not so much
How we fit into a group of friends and strangers alike
To explore our identities by trying new things
How our bodies were capable of amazing feats
What brings us joy
As we move into adolescents and our teen years, we are often no longer welcome on the playground. We also begin to feel some disconnect from the groups we played with for so long. People are changing and finding new spaces in the world, but some of us struggle to find that sense of true belonging.
We may be able to fit in, but new regain that sense of freedom to be our authentic selves like we could on the playground.
This is a space for our teens and tweens who feel "unseen" to reconnect with themselves and step into their true identity. It is here to help our teens BECOME who they are meant to be and on their own terms.
Many of us are also navigating a new path where either our teens are struggling and we don't know quite how to help, or their experience is triggering our own experience from those years, and that emotion is getting in the way of seeing their needs clearly.
The key here is to get our teens the support they need to flourish and be seen, but also to get our support as moms aligned with our teens' goals - because sometimes they are a lot different than what we imagined for them.
The Playground is kind of a Health 2.0 class, where we focus on all the different wellness factors to help teens transition from child to adulthood. We go beyond the basics of nutrition and PE, and bring in socio-emotional learning to help our teens (and us as moms) finally understand how to make health functional and apply it to our lives.
This space is open to any mom or teen who feels that this group speaks to you. We speak about issues related to boys, girls, and those who fall in between. The key goal of The Playground is to support both moms and teens and follow your lead to grow.
If you are called to join us, you are welcome!
Set your teen up on a path of being confident in their identity and goals. Help them step out of the shadows and be seen, and know that you are by their side and supporting them on the path to chasing their dreams.
They'll be getting the tools to know how to support her physical, social, and emotional health that they can use now, but also call upon in the future when new obstacles arise. And you never know, you might pick up a few things to help you on your own journey to rediscovering your own identity as you move through midlife.
Join now for free, and then you'll have the option to upgrade to our All-Access Plan to get the most out of our community for a low monthly fee.
