Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My child isn't a teen yet. Does your information apply to me?

A: ABSOLUTELY! Preventative medicine is the best kind. If you can learn how to navigate the social media world, look for the signs that your child is being bullied/cyberbullied, and help your child have healthy relationships – you will be way ahead of the game.

Q: Isn't it intrusive to be monitoring my kid's device activity?

A: It's called social media for a reason. Everyone else knows what your child is posting and you should, too. It is vitally important to teach our kids how to protect themselves on social media, and the best way to do that is to find out what's they’re really up to!

Q: Where can I find some of the upcoming group topics?

A: Join our weekly newsletter or keep checking our workshop and groups page for updates on the topics that matter the most to you. If you have a topic that you would like to discuss, contact us or try a one-on-one coaching session with Kacee.

Q: My child has had significant life challenges. Can you help?

A: Kacee is trauma-informed trained and has walked many young people and their families through some of life’s most overwhelming challenges – and she knows many of them first-hand from her own experiences. Kacee would love to help you and your teen find the specific resources to overcome the difficulties you are facing.

Q: Why would I benefit from the social media awareness workshops and resources? How bad can it really be?

A: Social media and the cyber world our teens live in is constantly changing, and the way our kids are interacting with their devices negatively impacts their health in many scientifically proven ways. It is vital to the physical and emotional health of our children that we help them keep their social media use in balance so it doesn’t take over their lives.

Q: I am a teacher or a youth worker. How can I benefit from Let’s Talk Teens?

A: Kacee was once a youth worker and now has nearly two decades experience training them. These resources were created with you in mind as another layer of defense in the community web that keeps our kids from falling through the cracks. Feel free to use them for your trainings or get in touch with Kacee for customized curriculum.

Q: My teen is really testing me. Would coaching sessions help us?

A: With either one-on-one or family coaching sessions, we’ll dive into those exasperating dynamics. Having worked with teens for more than 16 years in various capacities, Kacee will help you gain insight and perspective on the situation so you can begin communicating with honesty and kindness.

Q: I don't have a lot of extra time. Is the workshop worth it?

A: We know parents barely have time to sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee. Our workshops provide the essential information you need into just 30 minutes, plus bonus material, so you can watch while you get ready for your day, or make dinner, and feel equipped to manage the teen years.

Q: What other services does Kacee offer?

A: Kacee has over 16 years of experience consulting with nonprofits, speaking in front of large crowds (over 70,000 to date) in live settings, facilitating leadership training and management, running youth groups, coordinating conferences and camps, and more. She is also a speaker for Rachel’s Challenge, the leading school assembly program in the country, promoting kindness and compassion. She would love to talk with you.

Q: My teen is a “good kid.” Why do I need to be involved in my teen's social media life?

A: All teens – even if they are not they are the target or perpetrator – are being exposed to harmful behavior online, through texting and other means. Then there are the digital phenomena of stranger hookups, party updates, cyberbullying, catfishing, hateful language, and much more in the secret world of our teen's cyber lives. If you don’t know what some of these terms are, you definitely need to educate yourself for your child’s safety.

Q: How do your virtual coaching groups work? Is it awkward to be online in a group?

A: Groups are an opportunity to not only receive coaching but also have the resource of other parents or teens to bounce ideas off of for perspective once you’ve lost yours. We also encourage one another during the week through a Facebook private group. We share our stories through a private Facebook group, support each other through common challenges, and create a positive, nonjudgmental community.
