PARENTING IS DIFFERENT THAN YOU IMAGINED.
You remember when you first brought your precious baby home from the hospital; your head was filled with thoughts of being a perfect parent.
You’d make healthy homemade meals and read the books to help your love develop into baby Einstein (record scratch). But then reality set in.
Now, the days go by so fast that it’s like someone is stealing minutes. It never ends; after-school pick-ups, dashing through fast food drive-throughs (goodbye healthy meals,) and helping with homework. You’re so tired you barely have the energy to tuck him in at night, let alone read a book.
THE BURDEN OF GUILT IS CRUSHING YOU BENEATH ITS WEIGHT.
You thought you could do it all; have a successful career, raise a wonderful family, and be an incredible partner. Now, you’re not so sure. Some days, you don’t even get around to the most important thing on your to-do list – parenting.
If you were to grade yourself as a parent, most days, you’d get a C-, and that’s being generous. But on the nights you come home after bedtime; shoo him away while you’re on the phone; or pepper him with criticism, frustration, and impatience, your grade barely passes.
On those days, guilt squeezes your heart like a vice grip. Sometimes, you wish you didn’t have to work. But money doesn’t grow on trees, and bills don’t pay themselves.
IT’S SO EXHAUSTING.
Your parenting to-do list is never ending; birthday parties, extracurricular activities, and doctors’ visits. You’ve accepted this as part of the deal.
But sometimes, it seems like your child is a bomb ready to explode at any moment with emotions, words, tantrums, and tears. And that you have not accepted, nor do you know how to deal with.
You’re aware that sometimes your responses are wrong and make problems worse. But you’re doing your best in the face of slamming doors, disrespectful attitudes, and one-word answers.
LET US BE YOUR LIFELINE.
As quiet as it’s kept, being a loving mom or dad and being a good parent are two very different things. Loving your child is instinctual; parenting is not. It’s a skill that can be learned, developed, and practiced.
That’s where we come in.
We help you understand your child’s developmental stage so you know what to expect and how to establish rules and consistency.
We’ll teach you ways to soothe an upset child, recognize their triggers, and develop appropriate consequences for unacceptable behavior.
USING SCIENCE-BASED METHODS,…
…you’ll learn to cultivate healthier routines and reinforce good habits. At the same time, we’ll help you uncover your own issues preventing you from reaching your full potential as a parent.
Specifically, we’ll use science-based methods like Triple P Positive Parenting Program to teach you to create consistent, predictable routines that eliminate meltdowns and tantrums and reinforce good habits.
Learn to use discipline instead of punishment, so your child doesn’t hide bad behavior and problems. Instead, they’ll feel comfortable asking you for solutions.
You’ll learn strategies like “ask, say, do” to teach new skills and to talk so your kids will listen and listen so they will talk.
