Parent Support Group

Kol Haneshamot, with the guidance of Rabbi and Mrs. Shimon Russell, offers Parents of struggling children a Support Group. 


Rabbi Russell, LCSW, a recent oleh to Israel from Lakewood, NJ with decades of experience working with teens and their families is considered an authority on the phenomenon of struggling children. Mrs. Russell is a certified family coach and narrative therapist.


Rabbi and Mrs. Russell share from their personal and professional experiences how parents can make small changes in the family life with exceptional results. Groups will be limited in size and will meet every other week.

Under Rabbi and Mrs. Russell’s guidance the group will:

  • Talk to other parents who understand the types of problems, turmoil, and roadblocks you experience

  • Gain a sense of hope from parents whose teens are making progress.

  • Get assistance in brainstorming ideas for how to respond to a difficult teen.

  • Help you to carve out time to sort out your thoughts about your teen and make plans to take positive action.

  • Allow you to hear other parents' experiences with treatment programs for their teens. You may gain information about what services they have found helpful.

  • Give you a better perspective on your teen's situation.

  • Teach tools for improved communication and parenting skills.

  • Give feedback about whether you may be over- or under-reacting to your teens' problems from parents dealing with similar problems.

  • Allow you to find solace in the fact that you are not alone.

  • Teach you to avoid making mistakes with your teen by listening to what other parents have tried that didn't work.

  • Let you help other parents by sharing your thoughts, experience, and advice.

  • Allow you to receive help from others in dealing with a crisis teen situation.

  • Very likely provide an opportunity to keep your sense of humor. Even though many things troubled teens do are risky, there may be some silly things that you're able to laugh at once in a while, too

  • Let you vent the uncomfortable feelings that come up in dealing with a difficult teen with parents who won't judge and may be able to offer advice.

  • Counteract any fears that it is your fault your teen is troubled by relating to other parents dealing with the same challenges.
