Parenting a teen can be exasperating. It’s an immense privilege and a daunting responsibility to prepare a child for adulthood. Your masterpiece-in-the-making craves independence while desperately (and sometimes secretly) needing you to guide his or her unique strengths, talents, and personality.
Many parents only offer rules that may have worked better at younger ages. Now more than ever, your teen needs your time, heart, conversations, and love.
In Parenting beyond the Rules, discover how to paint a canvas that will be enjoyed over a lifetime: a relationship with your unique and wonderful teen. Are you ready to pick up your brush with confidence?

“Connie has packed a lifetime of wisdom and experience into Parenting beyond the Rules. Every parent will find golden nuggets of actionable intel from the front lines of parenting. Don’t just read it . . . USE IT!“
Rick Green, founder of Patriot Academy
They teach with their lives. They are natural nurturers. Their very existence causes us to consider our own existence and to ponder the path of our feet.
Mentors are heart shapers and life changers – not necessarily because they walk through a book with someone for a few weeks, but because they walk through life with someone for a season.
In a world where young women desperately need to experience Titus 2 in real life, mentors are often hard to find. Perhaps not because women are unwilling, but maybe because many feel unworthy, unqualified, unprepared and are just afraid to put themselves out there. Many shy away from the obvious maternal mandate because they lack the tools, the time or the support to feel like they can effectively mentor others.
In the grander scheme of things, we’re all mentors – and we’re all mentees. We’re all in a place where we are either influencing someone else or someone else is influencing us.
But what does it really take to be a Titus 2 type of mentor?

-Colleen Wittmuss | Youth & Education Sales Representative LEGOLAND®️ Florida
“LEGOLAND®️ Florida has had the pleasure of working with Connie Albers for the last two years. She has helped our park make immeasurable strides within the Homeschool community and has been an extremely valuable resource in understanding how this unique community works. Connie has helped connect our park to Homeschooling families with her vast knowledge of how to use social media all the way to strategic data collection and e-blasts to her thousands of contacts. Not only has she helped provoke Homeschool families to consider our park as a field trip option but she has also connected me with many other influential people like herself in this community. As the Youth & Education Sales Representative I have really enjoyed getting to know her both personally and professionally and would not have been able to understand and market LEGOLAND Florida to these groups and families without her help.”
-Alice Pauquette, Former Director of Events & Special Projects for FPEA
