About JoAnn Schauf
JoAnn Schauf began her professional counseling career in California. Later, as a counselor in schools and colleges in Texas, JoAnn supported students, families and educators providing guidance, presenting professional trainings, and creating innovative programs.
JoAnn responded to the needs of parents of adolescents by founding Your Tween & You in 2016. She received a Top Entrepreneur Award in Dallas in 2017. She’s a member of the Texas Counseling Association, contributes to local media, and stays in contact with her readers with a bi-monthly newsletter, The Tween Times.
A sought-after coach and speaker, JoAnn empowers and inspires parents with the system and secrets to thrive together during adolescence. She understands that it’s challenging to be in the body of an adolescent, and equally frustrating to be the parent of one. Those she’s touched call her the “Parent Whisperer” because what they learn and apply transforms their relationships with their children.
JoAnn and her husband Dave raised four children, all of whom were adolescents. Every holiday season her family and friends eagerly await a box of her famous fudge. It won’t be long before JoAnn’s book for parents of tweens will be available.
As an expert on adolescents and parenting them, JoAnn Schauf is a popular speaker. With stories right out of her counseling office, hilarious video clips, and fun activities, audiences love her.
She claims, and it’s true, that it’s easier to learn with laughter than data. Her goal is to send everyone home with at least one new strategy to connect better and take care of number one. In the human world it’s relationship, relationship, RELATIONSHIP.

Helping you connect with your tween
I was talking to Frank about his 7th grade daughter after a recent workshop. He said, “Emily’s enthusiasm and excitement about making snow globes to give her friends for Christmas was contagious. Now the holidays are over, and the jars, glitter, and figurines are jumbled in a corner. Never would I have failed to complete a time sensitive project. I get frustrated by how different Emily is from me.”
I nodded, and he continued. “Emily’s extraordinarily creative, but her clock is arbitrary. The thing is, eventually she completes every thing she starts.”
“Really?” I asked.
“Emily made a model of the Alamo for her Texas History project. After baking stones with flour, salt, and water, she constructed the walls and used brown Legos for the windows and doors. I was fascinated watching her.”
“Do you have a picture of her Alamo?” I asked.
He showed me and smiled, “Here’s the thing. Emily wasn’t bothered that she lost 15 points for turning it in late. She was proud of her masterpiece.”
“You understand her, Frank,” I said.
“I’m constantly nudging myself not to nag her. I like her fortuitous and whimsical nature. I don’t want to overpower her or force her to be someone she’s not.”
“Then you won’t,” I assured him.
How can we support and empower our child who’s rhythm, talents, habits, and interests differ from ours?
We can we set expectations for behavior, school performance, and participation based on their individuality to give them structure and confidence?
We can spend time with them to learn what makes them tick so they know they are understood and that we have their back.
And we can celebrate their strengths and values so they feel our acceptance and love.
Thank you for raising your child with care and kindness. They will thank you later. If I can help you along the way, shoot me an email.
