Perfectly Imperfect Parenting

It's time to let go of the idea that to be a parent you have to be perfect! Parenting is not perfect, being human is not perfect, our children will not be perfect - Thats okay!

The best skill we can give ourselves and our children is grace, understanding, and the ability to learn from mistakes we made through problem-solving, self-care, and building our community. 

This class gives parents tools for child development, parenting tips, and how to self-care without guilt. Come join us!

What is Perfectly Imperfect Parenting

This concept is owning the idea that we are our children's perfect parent, flaws and all. We learn to embrace and grow with chaos as we gain a deeper understanding of our children and self. 

It focuses on fostering a respectful environment that empowers children to make responsible choices and learn from their mistakes. The curriculum aims to create a sense of belonging and significance for each child, helping them develop essential life skills such as problem-solving, cooperation, and empathy.

 

Incorporating strategies such as active listening, effective communication, and consistent consequences, Perfectly Imperfect Parenting instills a sense of self-discipline and resilience in children, ultimately preparing them for a successful and fulfilling future.

Parent + Life Coaching

Do you need help fine-tuning your parenting skills?

Coaching gives parents the tools required to handle nearly any situation:

  • Learn how to respond versus react to situations

  • Eliminate/reduce yelling by creating a happier, calmer, family dynamic.

  • Learn the Positive Discipline way of mindful parenting with kind and firm boundaries.

  • Work on your own triggers so that you can maintain calm in tough parenting situations

  • Learn tools to teach your children how to navigate their own life choices. 

  • Learn how to effectively communicate with your children in developmentally appropriate ways,

  • Learn about the ages and stages of your children, decode their behavior patterns and learn how to adjust as they grow. 

  • Improve your relationship with your child, help your child improve the relationship with their siblings. 

Over the years, I have been overjoyed to help families learn how to navigate challenging situations and gain new insight into their role as a parent. Together we problem solve trouble areas and help grow new habits while learning how to let loose old ones. My one on one coaching helps bring balance to your family's unique needs and to achieve parenting goals

My Journey with Positive Disicpline

I started my journey into Positive Discipline when my son (now a teen diagnosed with autism, ADHD, and anxiety) was just a toddler. I read the books and implemented tools that I felt were important, and they worked well to help me curb tantrums, build autonomy in my son, and create boundaries. I was far from the perfect parents, but I took it day by day. I soon became a mother of two under 3, and when my daughter was five days old, my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer. I felt out of control in my life. I dug deeper into Positive Discipline (that and crochet!) to ensure I kept my parenting balanced and not reactive to my deep sadness. When my daughter was almost a year old, and many friends asked me, "How do you do it all?" and being told, "Show me how!" I decided to train to become a certified instructor. I also ran an in-home daycare at the time - "How perfect!" I thought, "I could start offering classes to my parents as soon as this is complete!" Once I was done, I started working on workshops. On my birthday in 2013, I was booked for a mini session with a PTA, "What is Positive Discipline?" I won't lie, I fumbled a lot, but it was a learning and growing experience. 

Since then, I have helped countless parents navigate everyday childhood development issues, such as tantrums, pickiness, defiance, and so much more. In addition, I have helped parents set up and navigate when their children have been diagnosed with special needs. Being a special needs mom of two and having years of practice as an educator, I am confident I can help create a plan with your family and with Positive Discipline. 

 

Most of these parents have come to me with neglectful or abusive backgrounds looking to start over with a blank slate - needing a more gentle approach to parenting. Through a class or one-on-one coaching, we use techniques from Positive Discipline and help create a path for parents that's easy to understand and navigate. Sometimes through additional coaching, we will build self-esteem for the parent while overcoming past traumas; sometimes, this happens alongside the help of a licensed mental health professional. 

Through everything, Positive Discipline helps parents and children grow healthy skills, self-esteem, autonomy, and healthy boundaries together.
