Our focus is your focus — we want to boost the emotional wellbeing, individual awareness, and social competency of your teenager.
We do this by texting your teen(s) videos, podcasts, surveys, memes, and empowering focused messages multiple times a week.
Through text, we are able to measure, inspire, encourage, and intervene directly with your kids, person-to-person, anonymously, and conveniently.
"Guess what? I aced my test, 100/100!"
"Sometimes people don't tell me things because they don't want to hurt my feelings,but the fact they don't tell me hurts my feelings. What should I tell them?"
"I’m feeling nervous"
"Soo, the other day I got into a really heated argument with my best friend's mom, because they kinda make my friend feel down. I went to confront her, but it turned into an argument. I said some things I'm not too proud of, and wrote her an apology note, but um. I still feel sick from what I said."
"Quite a bit, a lot has changed for my recently, I told my parents about wanting to disassociate myself from their religion, and that's been just difficult because I'm trying to figure out what to believe, I recently gave up pornography as well, and it's been such a struggle without it, I've had an addiction to it for a few years now, so everyday life just seems much harder than usual, and as the end of the quarter nears my schoolwork is just ridiculous, so it's been quite hard to feel happy these past couple weeks"
"i'm failing all my classes"
"idk. i just get sad randomly sometimes like my depression will just come and hit me out of nowhere when i'm feeling fine. and my doctor thought i might be bipolar but the psychologist said i wasn't so yeh. idk i'm just kinda weird lol"
"thank you so much! i will reach out if i need to 🥰"
"How do I feel better"
"“I'm grateful for you, and my family. Thanks for being here for me!! You're awesome ”"
"I lost my whole friend group of 4 years. I think that they were just so toxic. i wasn't invited to anything unless i texted them. i would leave with extreme anxiety and no one would ask me if i was ok. and they've all just changed since i met them. we don't have the same values or morals anymore"
"I'm stressed with my grades still. Normally I have all A's but I have a C in math that I've been trying to get up but I don't get the unit I missed"
"Man are u a real person? Also I am burnt out. But answer both questions plez"
"Why do I feel the need to hide who I really am from my friends? I end up resenting them because they're talking to the person I pretend to be, and it feels fake because I'm fake around them"
"I love music, thank you! Thank you so much for ur help"
"My best friend texted me saying she is fed up with me hurting her feelings and being mean, I don't know what I've done and apologized if I've ever done anything not on purpose. She said apparently I did something on purpose and I should know what it is. Now she won't talk to me and I'm still confused. Any advice???"
"i have another question. how do you feel good about yourself and things you are good at without seeming self centered?"
"My friends say I talk too much, any tips on how to talk less?"
"I totally agree thanks!"
"I’m doing better now, thank you!"
"How do I make and keep friends?"
"Thank you for being here for the students, it's great to have a person to talk to. Here's a little expression of my gratitude in video form (the audio is a little quiet so turn up the volume a little)"
"I appreciate it 😊most definitely👍"
"thank you! i'm kinda stuck right now & i don't know what to do about this boy! i really like him & we've dated in the past but needed to break up to work on ourselves. we just recently decided to try again because obviously we still like & care for each other! but last night, i found out while we were broken up he did some bad things that he shouldn't have! he regrets it & says he was forced into it. at the end of the day you are responsible for the decision you make & no one can 'force' you🤷🏽♀️ i've been thinking about this all day & it makes me sick:( i know it shouldn't affect me this bad because we were broken up but i don't know if i can move past this! he's told me he is sorry SOO many times but it just hurts me:("
"I want girls to like me"
"Idk, family life has gotten a little better for him, but his sisters make him feel worthless, and when his parents get after him, they yell at him so much, he feels like cutting. I always manage to make his feel better, but, I really just don't like his mom the most. She manipulates him to fo what she wants, and it just breaks him"
"Ya those are really awesome tips, thank u so much! Ima screenshot it so I don't forget - I appreciate your help, it's really nice to have someone to talk to 😅"
"That’s a great idea thank you, honestly, I really appreciate it.”"
"These tips will probably help a lot for now - I'd love to stay in touch, and I'll reach out if I'm struggling again (probably sooner rather than later 😅) thank you so so much"
"I'll try to gain the courage to talk to someone irl, if not I'll come back to talk to you- it's easy to release over text honestly 😅"
As a therapist of nearly 20 years specializing in treating teens, and as a Best selling author of a self-help book for adolescents, I've realized that every teen needs these 5 things:
