Learn how to reconnect
with your teenage son

An instant access online program & training with tools to help you and your son.

A direct pathway with clear strategies
to create a new powerful relationship with your son.

Are you tired, frustrated, and worried by your son’s behavior?

Do you feel like calling in sick from your MOM job?

Do you wish you could stay in bed some days, pull the covers over your head, and pretend you aren’t home?

What if TODAY you figured out what is going on inside that head and body and within a month had life-changing tools and strategies that re-connect you and get your relationship back on track.

This is a tough time as you juggle so many competing priorities and responsibilities, and the last thing you need is another confrontation with your teenager.

I know, I have been there. Taking care of everyone and everything and there just isn’t enough time or bandwidth in the day.

But this is a critical time. There are so many changes as your teenager is growing from the little boy you had a great relationship with to the young man you often feel is a stranger in your house.

The myth of it all being a result of hormones is a very unhealthy and damaging one! There is so much more going on.

These teenage years are the foundation for both the adult he will become and the relationship you will have with him for decades into the future.
Just waiting and hoping for your relationship to improve is a risk you cannot take. What if help was right here?

If you are like me, you are lying awake at night with so many stressful “what if” thoughts and questions. It’s exhausting.

You are trying to survive bad behavior, angry outbursts, happiness, sadness, disrespect, being ignored, stress (yours and his), anxiety, good grades, bad grades, and walking on eggshells. You feel guilty about your own feelings and outbursts. It is a horrible, disempowering place to be.

You love this kid but have run out of ideas and patience.

You need information and navigation strategies and your son really needs you to help him make sense of what is going on inside his head and body and outside in the surrounding world.

You are not alone, there is new information and strategies that can change everything.


Understand the developmental processes that are going on inside that trigger his behavior.


Learn how he processes information, how it is different from you, and why that really matters.

Don’t waste time

These teenage years are difficult but are the foundation for both the adult he will become and the relationship you will have with him for decades into the future. You are here with me now because you have been searching for solutions with limited success. You know the time to act is now, but what do you do?

I want to be your guide, and give you strategies and insights from my experience to change yours and create the future you desire.

My big AH-HA came when I learned about the developmental milestones of the adolescent brain and the fundamental differences between how men and women relate to the world. Adding this information to all I knew about our unique ways of learning and processing information created the content of this course.

Isla Reddin – Your Expert Guide

My Personal Journey

I am the mother of two boys who are now adults. I have been where you are today.

We made it through but not without a lot of drama, trauma, tears, sleepless nights, confusion, uncertainty, and testing all sorts of solutions. I am here to tell you that no matter what anyone else says, my experience was normal (and often terrifying) and so is yours!

I believe with all my heart that moms are the glue that holds a boy together through the difficult and unfamiliar years of adolescence. But given how crucial our role is, we have very little support, and we judge ourselves constantly for not doing enough or being good enough.

We cannot control their outside world, but we can help them make sense of their inside world. This is the goal of my course: to give you the tools to help you make sense of what is going on and create a new relationship that gets you through this period as a team, creating the connection and relationship you want to take into the future.

Working as a professional educator

I have spent 15 years working as a coach and educator with hundreds of young people in schools, universities, and the corporate workplace. I founded my first company in K12 schools writing curricula and training teachers to support all students as unique learners in ways that help them understand and demonstrate their strengths. I have hundreds of hours of study with experts in psychology, neuroscience, and communication theory and have put all this together into a program for you.

What do I know now that I didn’t know then?

I went through the messy teenage years with very little support. At the time I did believe that there had to be a better explanation for the adolescent behaviors I was seeing (two boys, two different experiences!). I knew it wasn’t just about hormones but I didn’t have any tools or strategies. I was told that if I just waited it out everything would be OK but my story did not have that option, and during this program, I will share my experiences.

You need a guide and a framework.


Relationships between parents and teens are tougher today than ever before.  It is a difficult dance as our kids pull away but still need us to hang onto them to keep them secure and safe.  We are their source of unconditional love.


There is much we now know about adolescent brain development that helps us make sense of these years, and with new communication tools we can design a great relationship.


With new information and a new perspective create the blueprint for the relationship you want and build it with your son step by step.  Test what works, what doesn’t, and make changes.

The framework to help you!

I have created an exclusive framework called R.E.S.C.U.E to deliver a course that is easy to follow and implement. I want to teach you all I now know to help you find the best strategies that work for you and your son. There is no one size fits all solution and no magic bullet.

However, there are ways of working together that make a big difference to your relationship, to the way you talk with each other, to your confidence in being able to guide and help him through these difficult years, to his confidence in being able to confide in you and trust you to guide him. I want to save you time and stress by teaching you all I learned to make things easier and faster for you.


What is working and what is not? You had a great connection when your son was younger and you can create that again…you need the right information that you can use in your unique way to put a plan into action. What do you believe is possible for your relationship with your son?


We are living in a time of extreme change and uncertainty. Our children are growing up in a world that is very different to ours and we must understand that. What internal and external stressors are you both dealing with? What impact are they having on your relationship? By taking a guided deep dive you will gain clarity on what can be changed.


Massive brain development takes place in the adolescent years. The only time of such rapid and life-changing brain development that comes close is 0-5 years old. Learn how the biological impulse to become an adult plays a critical role in your teen’s behavior and thinking.


Learn how men and women have different operating systems. How does this impact your communication with your son and other family members, friends, and work colleagues?

We all think we are communicating because we know how to speak and listen but effective communication is a learned skill that requires understanding and practice.


There are many more aspects to creating successful relationships than most of us know. The previous modules have given you the basis for making changes and trying new ideas. This module is where you put all the pieces together and create a blueprint for change based on your specific wants and needs.


Use the R.E.S.C.U.E. framework to take action with what you know and are observing. It is time to create a plan for your relationship that supports you both. This game plan becomes the template that you return to frequently. Test it, learn what works, and what doesn’t, make changes, and test again, and again.

A Framework that works!

Knowing that every child must become an adult, your active participation in guiding the development will determine not just how your child navigates the adolescent years but how you manage your own mindset and well-being during this time. You will be able to make decisions on how to put boundaries and a structure in place that honors your needs and supports your child.

Stretch that confidence muscle – you can do this! You can create the connection you want that will last.

Program Reviews

“This course was a real game changer for me. I was really seeing myself struggle with my son’s behaviour and I was searching for how to carry myself forward. I spoke to people in parent groups, all my friends, and even Psychologists. It just confused me further because everyone had an opinion.

Isla’s Course was amazing for me because it was structured, and it took me by the hands, gave me the support and guidance I needed to stick with one approach and work through it with a clear head.

The ideas and it made me realize a lot of my mistakes as a parent and simple adjustments that I could make in my expectations and my conversation and mostly in my attitude. It helped me to become not only a much more effective parent to my son, but also to stop feeling like I was constantly the bad guy. My son started to see me as someone he actually wanted to talk to and this really helped our relationship build slowly, and change its direction and eventual trajectory.

I really wish the course came earlier but I am so grateful for Isla’s approach and support. I cannot say enough on how I recommend this course. It saved my family!”

R M – Mother of 3 Sons

Isla’s course is a brilliant creation. You see in it material that stems from much proven research in medicine and neurodevelopment, psychology and spirituality.

The course has detailed rich content that is guaranteed to get you deeper into your own growth and thoughts every time you re-listen to it. It has the structure and flow to really help mothers in, not just their relationships to their sons, but also their relationships with themselves.

The material is very well put together and very nicely delivered, with logical flow and ease and clarity to work through. It is skillfully written to seem simple but in reality there is a lot there.

The support and love to the listener is easily felt in a constructive, nonjudgmental approach. The voice of the narrative is easy to listen to, and delivered in a relaxed slow enough pace for everyone to follow.

Here, at last, is the material many moms have been waiting for.”

Dr Mooallem – Pediatrician

“Hi Isla, I just wanted to thank you. When I was first recommended to take your course I was a little hesitant.

I wasn’t sure you would tell me something I haven’t heard in other courses that I previously took.

I have not finished the program yet but I can tell you I am definitely learning and seeing things I have to change within myself. With the way I do things.

You are making me see things I haven’t really thought about before. Can’t wait to complete the program and figure out how to change my ways to connect with my son again.”

The Modules

Discover what is included in each module of this unique training program.

In the introduction I explain how the course has been created and how to work through the different modules.

We have lived through a few very tough years, and they are not over yet.

Your goal is a great relationship with your teenager and in this module we will begin the process of understanding how to make that a reality.

I will tell you more about me and my mission in creating this course.

Through the video lesson and reflection documents you will gain clarity on what is important to you and what the best possible relationship will look like.

This will be your north star to guide your actions as you go through the course.

There are so many new factors in our lives that we, our children and loved ones are dealing with.

In this module you will look at some of them and reflect on the impact they are having. What can you take control of and what will you not be able to change?

Looking at the many different influences, life events, and situations your son has to navigate will bring you more clarity on how you can choose to approach them.

So often we are in reaction mode, and don’t always like the way we react.

This course is designed to help you pause and respond in a way that gives you more peace of mind and confidence.

The past several years have brought great scientific advances in understanding human brain development. New imaging technologies have enabled research into understanding what is happening in the brain during childhood and adolescent development.

All new parents should learn this information and be offered a refresher course every 5 years to understand the development that has already occurred and what to expect as their child grows and matures.

Understanding what is going on in the brain and body is life changing as you discover a new level of empowerment through using the information to manage your expectations.

In this module we will look at two different aspects that affect our ability to communicate successfully.

1. The difference between how men and women think and process their information. This one, along with the milestones of adolescent brain development, was a game changer for me. I had no idea that my way of operating was so different from my children’s and the other men in my life.

2. We have unique ways of taking in information and making sense of it. In this module you will discover your unique way of learning, processing and communicating and realize how important it is to adjust your way of connecting to others so that they can truly hear you.

You will come away with knowledge and awareness that you can apply to all your relationships in the future.

By the time you reach module 5 I hope you will have many more tools in your toolbox. The objective is to focus on a few things that you learned that can start to make a difference in your life.

There are many more aspects to creating lasting relationships that most of us realize. We were never taught any of this in school. How much more worthwhile would classes on communication and relationships have been than some of the topics we studied?

In this module we will start to put all the information together so that you can decide what is most important to you, what you want to work on first, second, third, etc.

You now have the R.E.S.C.U.E. framework.

It is designed to be a trigger word that you can bring to mind quickly and easily when you find yourself in a difficult situation with your teenager. Or, with anyone else, as you now have new tools and strategies that can apply to all your relationships.

Instead of reacting too quickly to a bad situation, think R.E.S.C.U.E., pause, even ask for a time out for yourself if you need it, and gather your thoughts to respond.

In this final module you will create a plan of action for getting your relationship with your teen back on track. Pick one or two things you can do differently to start testing. Don’t get overwhelmed by trying to change too much too fast.

In life we are constantly evaluating what is working, what is not, what to change and do differently to get a different outcome. We generally make progress in small increments. Just 1% per day is HUGE in a year!

Progress, not perfection!

This is no different. You now have new information to work with and can return to these lessons any time you need to. Often it takes hearing information in different ways to truly make it your own.
