foster and adoptive mom
When we adopted as parent trainers, we thought we were prepared. We were wrong.
We spent three years in a constant power struggle and dying on all the wrong hills. It took almost losing our kids to get us to do something differently.
Kids should come with manuals, but since they don't, a parent coach is the next best thing.
I've read all the books, gone to all the trainings, and gotten certified as a Life Coach, Enneagram Coach, Essential Oil Specialist, and Empowered to Connect parent trainer, so you don't have to.
I've helped dozens of parents shift to a brain-based view of behaviors so they can find more effective solutions besides threatening and punishing and become confident parents. I'm a mom to six kids by birth and adoption. They've taught me a lot about what creates thriving parent-child relationships…and what doesn't.
