Your Tween & You

Our mission is to help families thrive.

Your Tween & You empowers and supports parents as their children transform from children to adults. It’s not an easy task. Adolescents need the insight and wisdom of their parents. They have no experience with puberty. They are confounded by their role and belonging. Making it worse, their brains are not fully operational.

It’s so common for parents to feel perplexed when their children are moody, challenging  the rules, giving one word answers, and behaving with autonomous independence. All the while, they need their parents more than ever!

Our Story

JoAnn Schauf, Founder of Your Tween & You,  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, designing and presenting professional development, 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 adults and adolescents with the system and secrets to thrive together. 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 raised four children, all of whom who are now successful adults with families of their own. 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.

Our Approach


We believe families will thrive when parents are empowered. Adolescence is a serious time of transformation!  We teach specific skills, strategies and tools to facilitate parents’ leadership, communication and connection. Parents learn “how to” grow emotional wellness and resilience, understand and support the development stages and embrace shared decision making and second chances.

We believe in you! And we believe learning together is better than doing it alone.
