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.
"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."
"Bro a lot. Too much for a text i can barely speak what i need to say"
"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"
"I appreciate it 😊most definitely👍"
"Yeah, my aunt took a stroke, the doctors didn’t know why and it wasn’t looking very good. She had a severe brain bleed and their hope was that her brain would swell and stop the bleeding. But 12 hours later her brain was still bleeding. She had a 3% chance of pulling through but by 8 last night she was brain dead so they took her off life support and around 4 this morning she passed"
"hey thanks im sorry im just being bullied at school and i told the counselor and he's been helping me but it's only getting worse"
"I feel bad talking to my parents, because I know they will still love me if I let my grades drop and they'll always support me, but it does feel like to much pressure sometimes, especially since my older brother was so good when it came to grades and academic performance. And I'm not close enough with any of my teachers to share this kind of stuff with them...that's a good way to look at it, thank you.”"
"my older sister and i got into an argument and she moved out so i had to step up as older sister and then my dad kicked my mom out so i feel like i have a lot of pressure on me"
"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"
"Well thank you amazing human too! It's so awesome that you take time to talk to strangers and brighten their day through this program. Keep it up! Have a great day"
"Your advice really helped! Now I feel that my friends want to be around me more. 🙂"
"you're so right !! i'm kind of doubting the relationship because it has a lot to do w/ me trusting him!"
"I totally agree thanks!"
"I have been feeling just really down"
"I just dont rlly have anyone i can talk or relate to. Idk just feeling lonely and a little overwhelmed."
"thanks, that's really nice to hear honestly. I hope you have a great day"
"My friends mom passed away and I don't really know what to say to him. I don't want to sound insensitive but I don't what to sound pitiful, so any advice?"
"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 😅"
"Thanks for the wonderful advice"
"I miss my dad, he seems to be the only one who calm me down lately. And i'm stuck in my room breaking down while trying finishing assignments before the quarter ends so i don't have a bad grade, and i just need him to be here."
"The bullying has been happening for a few weeks and I honestly don't know why. Me and another girl got a note directed towards me called me a f---ing retard and behind my back this kid called me an ugly a--hole. i try not to let it bother me though it's not super important cos (this sounds weird and far fetched ik) likeeeeeee why would he call me ugly unless he thought i have a higher opinion of myself then that, so he prolly knows i couldn't care less about his words like they hurt but i know he's verbally abused at home and i don't put up with it and he can't handle not having the right reactions from me."
"I can't help in my classroom, we are online"
"You've been so helpful"
"0 - I’m super sad. What do you do if nobody likes you?"
"Okay sweet! there’s kind of a back story to it all to explain, as well as this being the first time I’ve gotten into this subject with anyone, so I’ll do that first if that's all good."
"That's a good idea thanks"
"I Don't know yesterday and today I just Felt sad when I woke up."
"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 don’t enjoy my life anymore.I mess everything up. I dont like it. My life is painful and since then I've had 2 suicide attempts. Been like this since mid 2019"
"No worries, monster texts are usually the best 😊 That is really helpful actually- I'm a visual learner, and that is a good image. Do you have any suggestions on how to get back to the inner circle? I get so caught up in the dregs I forget how to get out"
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:
