You’ve tried talking, bargaining and spanking — nothing works. You cannot get her to finish her homework without sitting over her like a hawk. By 7:00 p.m., you don’t have the patience for this, so nights often end with a fight.
It’s not that you don’t like being her mom, that’s easy. You love and care for her without hesitation. Being a mom is instinctual. Parenting is the challenge.
As quiet as it’s kept, having a child and being a parent are two VERY different things. Parenting is a skill that is developed.
That’s where we come in. We help you understand your child’s developmental stage, so you know what expectations are reasonable, how to establish rules and — be consistent.
We help you create a parenting toolbox, so you have some tricks to address common parenting challenges (e.g. bedtime battles, school and mental health issues).
We also help you uncover some of your own ‘stuff’ and determine if it’s interfering with your ability to reach your full parenting potential.
