Even the most loving families occasionally feel overwhelmed and stuck in certain family dynamics.
Because love alone does not automatically help us understand each other or enable us to resolve conflict and see things more clearly from our children’s perspective. This can feel like an impossible task, without the help and clarity of someone from the outside. Someone who can help us see ourselves and our loved ones more clearly, to point us in the right direction and help us find our own answers.
One of the kindest things we can give ourselves as parents, is “time-out” – space to find inspiration, to think and connect with that desire that led you to become a parent in the first place.
With me by your side, you will be exposed to alternatives to “time outs”, threats of “One, two, three – or else…” and exhausting power struggles that ultimately strain the connection we share with our children. While it can feel tempting to get our kids to cooperate using these tactics when they are younger, this rarely works when our little ones become teens with a will of their own and the fearlessness to defy us.
Whether you choose to work with me on a 1:1 basis or by attending my workshops, you will come to better understand your own reactions and why you sometimes sound like your own mother or father, despite vowing not to. You will discover effective ways to not let your own baggage take over – and instead connect with the side of you that you want your children to know. Developing a deeper understanding of your child’s perspective will allow you to discover what makes your child want to cooperate with you and strengthen your connection with them.
Whichever way feels right for you – I am here to support you on your parenting journey.
