Read more about Parent Coaching: Raising Children Consciously
We have been conditioned to believe that being a good parent means to take care of our kids first and if there is time left at the end of the day, or the end of the week, then we can take care of ourselves. We believe that is selfish to take time for us when there is so much to do and what ends up happening despite our desire to make time for self-care is that rarely there is time left. And not only there is no time left but also no energy left for yet one more thing.
Where to start when there are not enough hours in the day already? Choosing one thing that you look forward to doing when you wake up in the morning (besides keep sleeping, lol Guilty!) The idea is that the only thing you need to do when you get up is to take care of you, and that means that you need to get up before duty starts calling you, be that kids, husband, work, etc. 5 or 10 minutes before you start your day can really make a difference.
What is one thing you can do for yourself before you start your day?

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.
