I’m an author, speaker, and ally to parents who want to stay calm and think clearly... especially when their kids are pushing their buttons (and it'd be so easy to yell!)
I call my method “closing the parent gap” because you’re closing the gap between what you want to do as a parent and what you actually do when triggered in a high stress situation. To me, connection is the goal - not perfection. (Can I get a hallelujah?)
I live in Houston, Texas with my husband of 20 years and our 3 kids, 2 dogs and 2 part-time cats.
Contact me for speaking, media interviews, or to help the families in your organization close their parenting gap.
I don't judge and I'm not perfect - in fact, I'm quite up front and real about how things are in my own home - the good, the bad, and the ugly (yes, still!). As a parenting coach, I talk about how to close the gap between what we want to do as parents and what we actually do when the chips are down. Want to bring that conversation to your group, audience, or organization? Let's talk about it.
Learn how to keep cool, stay connected and change unhealthy patterns by closing the gap between what you WANT to do as a parent and what you ACTUALLY do during triggered moments with your peeps.
Maybe you find yourself yelling at 5:30 p.m. during the notorious witching hour? Or what about all those triggered moments, like when your child still hasn’t finished putting on his shoes for school and you have reminded him no less than twenty-seven times!
We all want happiness and success for our children throughout their lives. The worry of screwing up the people you love the most is attached to the thought that your behavior will possibly hinder their future state of being. You want the world for them. Closing the Parent Gap shows how to change the patterns you intended to bury from your own childhood by Closing the Parent Gap, allowing you to access in the heat of the moment that file in your brain with all those parenting tools you took the time to learn.
