Why does that matter?

Your parenting began with enormous love and a gentleness that bonded you and your child for life–and nothing has been the same since.

Now, despite that bond, you’ve started reacting more often than you thought. As a result, things challenge, frustrate, and trigger you and you’re emotionally exhausted.

The secret solution is to shift how you teach your child about their behavior. Then you can communicate, empower and teach without damaging your child’s spirit, or losing your temper!

No child likes hearing “eat your veggies.”
No parent appreciates someone telling them what to do.

Fortunately, you’re the expert on your child.

You know what works with your child and what doesn’t.
I don’t because I’ve never met you!
But that doesn’t mean you’re alone.

What does that mean?

  • Our job as parents is to guide and help our kids translate life’s experiences.

  • Our job is not to prevent or control those experiences.

  • Our job is to help our kids gain wisdom about themselves and the world around them, while we empower their potential and purpose as life continues to push them to grow. Shifting this one perspective about parenting naturally moves the mind toward responding.

A rut of inaction…

Without an actionable plan, it’s easy to fall into non-action and repeat the same reactive methods again and again, hoping for a different result. We all know what Einstein said about that, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”Albert Einstein

Read the blog, the book, book a coaching session, or purchase a mini-course because I am confident that you will, at long last, find the parenting strategies you’ve been looking for so you can respond instead of reacting.
