  • Parenting Coaching & Mentoring



    We understand how challenging it is today to meet the needs and desires of  children while trying to take care of yourself and your relationship with your partner simultaneously. It feels almost impossible at times as we are pulled in a million directions.

    However, as caregivers and parents, we need to regularly take an objective view of the balancing of these relationships. One of the most important aspects for caregivers is to take care of ourselves while we are taking care of others.   Similar to being on an airplane during an emergency: The flight attendance remind us to “put the oxygen mask on ourselves BEFORE we put it on the child”. We are no good to the children if we pass out, right? Just like we are no good to our children if we are not setting limits with our kids and taking care of ourselves.

    Through home visits and/or telephone coaching/mentoring, parents and care-givers receive confidential, personalized, and non-threatening support without ever having to leave their home or office.
