Parenting

The relationship between parent and child sets the tone for a child’s entire future. Cultivating a healthy parent-child relationship requires communication techniques similar to those that make for successful couples’ relationships.

 

I teach “conscious parenting,” which, according to Harville Hendricks, “…conveys to the child that he/she is of value and demonstrates the intention to understand the child and what he/she needs.”

 

Overwhelm, over-scheduling, too much multi-tasking: Most parents face these each day. And this intense schedule sometimes makes family members feel very separate and disconnected even when they are together all the time. I help parents learn to slow down, listen and attune to their children so that they can be truly connected, rather than just accomplished.

Together we will focus on:

  • Effective communication skills

  • Collaborative problem solving

  • Identifying and solidifying family values

  • Creating common goals

  • Identifying and understanding developmental stages

  • Fostering a loving and respectful parenting style
