As a parent, I find it is really easy to get stuck in a rut.  Then when I try to make things better, it’s so easy to go round and round and round in my own mind. I think that there is a better way, which I summarize as


Getting out might be calling some friends or family to help you take a day off with people who like you.

Getting out might be dropping by here to get some fresh perspectives.

Getting out might mean contacting me for some individual coaching session.  I charge 100$ an hour and offer a  free , no obligation, 20 minute get-to-know-you chat.  I connect with some folks in over the phone, some with Skype or Google+, some through emails.  My favorite is a combination of all of the above.

Here are some of the useful things I’ve done  coaching other parents:

  • Listen to you in a caring  and eye-openingly effective way. (Lots of us think much more freely and clearly with a caring listener)
  • Help you convert worries and concerns into plans
  • Teach the ‘Nurtured Heart Approach’ based on Howard Glasser’s book Transforming the Difficult Child
  • Help you figure out which plans are vital for right now, and which ones you can safely leave on the back burner
  • Inspire you to take action on those plans
  • Nurture you through the inevitable setbacks
  • Inspire you to take action some more, or to revise the plan, as needed
  • Encourage you to build support locally to reach your goals and teach any needed skills
  • Help you build habits that nurture you
  • Help you find your way to bear the yucky stuff that can’t be fixed, or can’t be fixed quickly enough
  • Help you do just about anything ‘smarter’ instead of ‘harder’ -including all the household management stuff
  • Celebrate with you when you can notice that you’ve made a huge difference in your child’s life
