Parenting is more than a set of skills. It's an attitude. It's about knowing how to motivate your kids through communication and leadership and teaching them how to relate to their own personal power. Too often, we get in our own way with doubt, fear and second-guessing.
Whether you're married, single or co-parenting, the practical minute to minute needs can obscure the bigger picture. That picture involves nurturing a relationship and a sense of responsibility. Consciously choosing the lessons we impart to our kids is one of the most important things we can do for them.
It is our actions, more than our words, that kids see. Working through issues, whether depression, anxiety, substance use or just lackluster communication, teaches children that personal growth and integrity are among the core values. Growing along with your kids is not easy but nothing rewarding ever is. If you're ready to become the best parent you can be, I can help.
