Do You Feel Stuck and Bogged Down By Parenting?
Do you keep having the same fight over and over with your spirited child? Maybe you feel like a broken record, repeating the same directions again and again. Perhaps you have read every parenting book recommended and find that they all say something different, and none of it works, at least not for long. You feel like you have tried every technique and approach to discipline and are getting nowhere. You and your partner are always at odds about how to handle the kids, and it is taking a toll on your relationship. Maybe you feel stressed, angry, sad, and hopeless. You worry that you are incompetent as a parent. You are physically and mentally exhausted. Perhaps you know that what you are doing isn’t working, but you don’t know what else to do. You are ready for a change.
You Can Experience Peace and Confidence as a Parent
You look around and see other parents’ children comply without question and wonder what you are doing wrong. When you are caught up in the endless negotiations and tantrums, it can be hard to see the positives. Many parents of bright, intense, sensitive, strong-willed, or spirited children feel just the way you do. The very traits you admire in adults are exhausting in your child. If you are ready to feel competent and in control, I can help.
You Will Feel More Capable and Connected
I have both experience with, and a passion for, helping parents with their spirited children. Together we will begin to understand your child’s unique temperament. You will learn to adjust your expectations to the skills of your child. You and your partner will develop shared values and rules for your children. I can teach you strategies to tame tantrums and set effective limits. Once your plan is in place, you will be amazed at how close and loving your relationship will be with your child. It will become easy to remain calm and in control when challenging behaviors arise. My positive and strength based parenting approach has helped many parents rediscover joy in parenting and it can help you too.
I offer brief consultation sessions to target a specific issue, such as sleep, toileting, or school refusal. Weekly sessions can be helpful to identify your parenting strengths and weaknesses, make a long-term parenting plan, and learn specific strategies to handle different situations or behaviors. You can learn new ways to discipline, set household rules, provide rewards, and improve your relationship with your child.
