"I WANT TO ENJOY BEING A PARENT."
Being a parent – whether of a child, tween, teen, or young adult – is challenging. Just when you think you’ve mastered one stage, another one throws you a curve ball. You want to do better, you want to be patient and understanding, and you want your kids to have a good relationship with you.
As a parent, you may spend a lot of time and energy just trying to “make it” through the day. It’s on you to get everyone out the door smoothly (and on time) in the morning, to get homework done without procrastination and whining, to be the referee so that everyone gets along, and to get everyone into bed and off to sleep. By the time you end your day, your EXHAUSTED!
You may also spend a lot of time ‘in your head’ trying to make sense of your kid’s behavior: what is with all the tantrums, why won’t she just go to bed, why is he so anxious, what is with all the drama, why won’t she come out her room, and WHY do I have to yell for anyone to listen!
As a parent, it feels like you are barely surviving, and your bag of tricks, well it’s almost empty. Your ability to be the calm and confident parent is diminishing, your relationship with your kids is not where you want it to be, and the conflict with your spouse is through the roof because you can’t agree on how to ‘fix’ things. You find yourself saying daily, “I just don’t know what to do anymore.”
ARE YOU READY FOR A CHANGE?
Together we’ll help you learn how to stop fighting and start working together as a team. Imagine what it’ll FEEL like to actually want to be around your kids again (and have them trust you enough to talk and share when they have something to say.). Because little kids have little kid problems, but bigger kids and teens have problems that require trust, connection, and communication in order for you to keep them safe. And you always want to be the first call they make when they’re in need.
Let us show you how to understand problem behaviors through the lens of brain science. This allows you to change behaviors that keep you stuck without self-blame or lowered self-esteem, and it gets right to the root so that you’re solving the problem and not just putting a band-aid on the symptom.
It’s time to ENJOY being a parent again. Laugh more as a family. Relax, play games, hang out, and enjoy each moment together.
