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.
"I have a math test tomorrow and that's the only class holding me back from my 4.0 and if I don't do good I'll lose it"
"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"
"thank you so much! i will reach out if i need to 🥰"
"That's a good idea thanks"
"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???"
"How do I increase self-confidence while performing or just stage fright in general?"
"My sister has depression, what can I do to help her?"
"I have a question, I have a friend who hasn't been making the best choices and so I've been trying to stop being friends with her how do I do that without hurting her feelings?"
"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?"
"You too, have a great rest of the day😁"
"yeah he's this guy i met thru my friends family. & we almost dated but then he ghosted me & i think he's still on & off w his ex. he plays w my feelings bc i saw him yesterday for the first time in over a month & he acted like we were still talking & everything & it was weird. so i'm not sure if o should move on or keep hoping he'll choose me"
"Wowwww thats so cool!"
"Your advice really helped! Now I feel that my friends want to be around me more. 🙂"
"I also want your opinion on something real quick: Which one should I get. Two lockets. One is a heart and the other’s an oval. They’re both the same amount. Which one should I get? The heart is the most popular, but oval is more sentimental to some?"
"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."
"My friends say I talk too much, any tips on how to talk less?"
"“I have tried to talk a little bit to my parents but I didnt like seeing them upset, plus they are already worried about me to much as it is, I dont want to add more weight on them anymore. And I dont trust the counselors anymore”"
"That’s a great idea thank you, honestly, I really appreciate it.”"
"im sad i aint at school i wanna kill my self"
"i'm failing all my classes"
"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 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.”"
"I want girls to like me"
"“Thats a good idea! Ive never tried that. Usually each day I just get a 1-2 hour nap...Alright i will definitely have to! Thank you so much”"
"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"
"I’ll give that a try, I appreciate the words of advice, they’re quite comforting."
"I like that, I think that’s a good point, thank you for your input"
"well, the overbearing feeling that everyone around is making you feel like you aren't good enough, like you're not deserving of the same kind of love if you're different"
"“I'm grateful for you, and my family. Thanks for being here for me!! You're awesome ”"
"My boyfriend broke up with me"
