Parenting is one of the
most crucial responsibilities a human being can have.
It brings great joy and can bring much pain. The
anguish of parents who realize only later all the things
they might have done differently is preventable and
curable, but how? There is very little training,
guidance, or assistance available. Community
college seminars? Self-help books? You'll
note one thing missing in all this: one-on-one
mentorship, follow-through that's absolutely assured,
solutions tailored and customized for your situation,
and the critical presence of your actual child!
Enter the parent coach:
Imagine having a clear vision of what values you want to
pass down to your children
Imagine feeling deeply fulfilled as a mom or dad
Imagine living a balanced life in which you have time
for yourself and your partner

I learned early on in
coaching to look my children in the eye 5 times a
day when they talk to me. It was good advice.
Connect to people. Slow down. Feel your
feelings and live an authentic life. If I continue
to run at society's pace and keep up, I will find out
that it isn't me. I was a pleaser.
Susan taught me, "Define your values and parent
accordingly." The competition and comparison among
mothers can blind the new mother. People are all unique
and there is no formula to good parenting. Be true
to yourself and your own unique values. Take time
to figure out what these are. After coaching I
took a spiritual path and found out that the best way to
be true to yourself is through quiet contemplative time.
Take time each day to observe your feelings, without
judgment, and listen to the voice that is deep inside
for direction. You'd be surprised to find how much
discipline it takes to stick to it -- taking time out
each day for quiet contemplation, but it is important in
