Read more about Parent Coaching: Raising Children Consciously
This week we are starting to get ready for the beginning of a new school year and it is always a reminder of how fast our children grow. A few years back they were running around in diapers and drinking from sippy cups and today we are getting backpacks and meeting their teachers. The time we have with our kids before they leave is very LIMITED.
Harley Rotbart from No Regrets Parenting calculated there are 940 Saturdays between the day our children are born and the time they go to college AND 260 of them are gone by their 5th birthday. Wow!
The irony of this is that when days are filled with power struggles, tantrums, sleepless nights and kids not listening for the 10th time the days seem like they would never end, but they do and all of the sudden our littles are not little anymore and what really matters in the end is how they felt during times.
Days are long, but years are short is what helps me remember to put things in perspective.
What are your feelings at the end of summer and your kids are going back to school?

I support you with the hardest job of all, the raising of your precious children. I help you find joy, peace and ease dealing with your family challenges. I teach you to connect instead of divide by parenting through love. I work with parents who are committed to turning their family dynamic around, to bringing more peace to their homes and cooperation from their kids. In other words, I teach them how to stop yelling and punishing and how to parent through empathy and connection. Parents know when their approach is not working and when they reach out, I meet them right where they are, I offer them a judgment-free and confidential relationship, I guide them through their struggles, celebrate their successes and support them in their setbacks. After working with me you will feel confident about the best way to raise your children, you will feel a sense of peace and regain your joy knowing that every member of your family feels loved and valued, they are heard and they matter. You will be the parent you always wanted to be in the midst of any circumstance. I am a mother of three boys and I went from being the perfect parent in my fantasies to a “monster mom” in reality and in a matter of a couple of years after I had my first child. My world crumbled. It was chaos. And then I went to being a confident mom that gained her joy back thanks to a deep dive into conscious parenting, a long journey of inner work still to this moment and staying committed to being true to myself.
