    • Parenting

“When someone tells you who they are or someone tells you what they want, believe them.” -- Jill Wheeler
It’s a new year, a new decade, and a new special series for Parenting Peak Performers. We couldn’t be more thrilled about this episode with adventure therapist, speaker, writer, athlete, and yoga instructor, Jill Wheeler. As the founder and director of the Wellfit Institute, Jill combines life coaching and the power of nature to produce impactful adult therapy. Jill is a licensed mental health and licensed professional counselor, who creates transformational and empowering experiences for individuals, groups, and communities in personal and business sectors. 
When the new year comes around, we tell ourselves we’ll try new things. Conquering a new task is thrilling, and a great way to build confidence. As parents, we want our kids to feel that success, and when we spot talent in them, we’re quick to take them to tryouts. 
But what happens when your teen tells you they don’t want to go? 
Today, Jill and I discuss 
Expedition mentality  How to make an agreement with your teen about trying something new  The benefits of self-enrollment and empowering your teen to choose  How forced entry into sports can break relationships, motivation, and trust  And so much more! 
Keep up with Jill at jillwheeler.com and learn more about Wellfit Girls here.
