help and encouragement for parents in three flavors
Parent coaching, classes, and workshops
“As a single parent the hands-on parenting skills and techniques made a dramatic difference in my family.”
“I found all the information and suggestions he provided very grounded and relevant. They were immediately helpful to my needs and those of my children.”
“He presented his material with an ease and humor which set the tone for the entire workshop. . . Something I would recommend for all parents to attend.”
Loving AND effective parenting requires these three steps
Step one: knowledge. We need to find out what we need to know. For example: children need to be loved. Children need boundaries.
Step two: understanding. Knowing is not enough. We must also understand. Knowing children need love and boundaries will not help us if we do not understand what those two realities actually mean.
Step three: effective action. Knowing and understanding is not enough. We must also be able to act effectively. Understanding our child's love and relationship needs must become words and actions that actually meet those needs. Understanding the need for boundaries must become words and actions that successfully set and maintain those boundaries.
Without effective action, our parenting will never be complete. More . . .
My job as a teacher and coach is to help you get through all three steps.
