There is always a lesson….Life provides us with so many opportunities to learn and grow, and parenting is certainly one of them. There are so many lessons in every day parenting. Our children are our greatest teachers. If we slow down, listen, observe, and reflect, we will realize how much children have to teach us about ourselves, them, and life.
It is our job to usher in our child’s true essence and to nurture our own generous and loving hearts through parenting. We are here to guide them but also to follow their lead. As parents we hold the keys to creating a generation and world that is compassionate, self-aware, confident, resilient, cooperative, and emotionally healthy and intelligent. Yes, that sounds like a daunting responsibility…that is why parenting is truly the hardest practice, and we all need support and love as we journey through life as parents.
I don’t have all the answers but I do know from experience, research, my life’s journey and my training and mentoring, that through nurturing attuned connections with our children we are able to guide and foster their emotional intelligence (as well as our own) and their overall well-being. Many people say “parenting is natural – you just know what to do.” Yes, it is natural for us to want to be parents but many times conflicting needs or old parenting paradigm influences keep us from following our intuition in parenting and end up hindering us from seeing our child’s essence. These obstacles disconnect us from ourselves and keep us from parenting in a more peaceful manner.
All human beings’ most core basic need is CONNECTION. This starts from the time we enter the womb. And this desire for connection grows stronger once we enter the world as babies and children, and it is strong until the day we die. We all want to be loved unconditionally (no strings attached or expectations), seen, heard, and understood. And as we grow up, we so desperately want this from our Parents. Thus, I am here to help parents feel understood, seen, and heard so that they can then learn how to validate and effectively help their children feel unconditionally loved, seen, and heard so that their children’s core needs are met. Through supporting the parent and teaching tools to meet their own needs, we are able to create an amazing connection and cooperation between Parent and Child. And We are able to understand our children’s needs and meet them as best as possible.
The other basic human need is FREEDOM. We all desire to be free, autonomous and liberated. We want to be free to be our authentic selves, to express ourselves, to make our own choices, to follow our passions, simply to be FREE. This is not only true for adults but it is also a desire we come into life with early on. Our children seek to be authentic and autonomous. They want us to allow them to be themselves. This can be challenging in the current parenting model. I am passionate about helping parents free themselves in authentic ways and at the same time allow their children the freedom and liberation their children desire. It is a partnership and two free autonomous beings living side-by-side cannot be more beautiful and inspiring.
Parenting can be CHALLENGING work. But it doesn’t have to be. There are tools to help foster more peace and ease in our practice of parenting. Tools to help you look forward to your time with your child and ensure that time is filled with laughter, love, joy, and emotional expression.
Through my parenting coaching process and classes you can be supported as you deepen connection with your child. Also, nurture more compassion for yourself. WE learn to make great opportunities for connection from our mistakes as parents and turning them into growth experiences for you and your child, rather than making it a struggle, shame and regret.
I am here to support you in your journey to LOVE Parenting, to awaken to your own needs, awaken to your child’s needs, and to nurture your own self-compassion, to help you foster attuned connections with yourself and with your child. I am here to serve and to share my passion for parenting, childhood freedom, and self-growth with anyone and everyone, through coaching one-on-one and my other class offerings.
