WHAT IS THE
The Parenting Mentor is the ultimate ally to parents on their journey to raise confident and resilient children, whether they are toddlers or teens. Our sessions help parents reduce everyday parental stress, fear, and anxiety – creating happier, more relaxed families.
We believe the road to raising independent, self-reliant adults starts with adopting a clear set of parenting strategies today, grounded in our highly-effective approach to parenting known as the CLEARR™ method: Communication, Love, Empathy, Awareness, Rules, and Respect.
We are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals for your children and your family.
WHY DO I NEED A PARENTING MENTOR?
A parenting mentor is not a psychologist or a therapist. It’s an experienced friend, confidant, and strategist you can turn to for parental advice and guidance. We offer a safe place to talk, judgment-free, completely tailored to your questions, your concerns, your situation, and your needs.
In our professional lives, we all seek mentors who can guide us and nurture our careers in ways large and small. But when it comes to the most important job in the world – parenting – many of us can feel confused, clueless, and completely on our own. Parenting books and websites can feel impersonal and judgmental, and none are specific to your child or home life.
Above all, a parenting mentor is an ally when you need it most. Together, we’ll achieve amazing results for you and your family.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE PARENTING MENTOR?
We offer thoughtful guidance and advice designed to tackle parenting’s biggest challenges.
Our CLEARR™ methodology can help address a wide range of common issues, such as:
RELAX & LET GO
Do you find yourself helicopter parenting, even when you don’t intend to? Learn strategies to develop confidence, relax, and get out of the “rescue business” once and for all!
Do your kids rely on you too much? When your kids depend on you for every little thing, it’s a sure sign they need to develop stronger self-sufficiency.
DEALING WITH DISAPPOINTMENT
What do you do when things don’t go your child’s way? Not making the the basketball team or not getting invited to a party can sting, but can also provide major growth opportunities.
Are your children constantly bickering—or worse? Learn how to minimize sibling rivalry and create a more positive family dynamic
GETTING OUT OF THE
Forgotten lunch? A missed project? It’s common to want to fix those little mistakes, but it doesn’t do your child any favors. Discover how to encourage self-reliance in kids, so you can stress less.
MANAGING MORNING AND EVENING ROUTINES
Competing priorities and a ticking clock can make family A.M.’s and P.M.’s quite stressful. Learn how to manage routines so everyone gets where they’re going on time – without yelling.
And so much more . . .
