Behind every good parent
is a great partnership.
What's the Secret to Parenting?
Each child comes to this world with their own unique strengths and needs. As parents, we want to help our children thrive and maximize their strengths while supporting their weaknesses. But what happens when you are not on the same page as your partner on how to get it done?
IS PARENTING WITH YOUR SPOUSE DIFFICULT?
DO YOU FEEL YOU ARE CONFUSING YOUR CHILDREN WITH MIXED MESSAGES?
IS GETTING ON THE SAME PAGE WITH YOUR SPOUSE HARDER THAN PARENTING?
DO YOU FIGHT CONSTANTLY WITH YOUR SPOUSE OVER PARENTING ISSUES?
Parenting arguments with your spouse are exhausting. They can feel like an endless battle where your children can end up behaving even worse, or not getting the resources they need to thrive. Do you wonder if the constant disagreements on parenting are affecting the emotional well-being of your child? As time goes by, the arguments about parenting can get worse and get in the way of a fulfilling marriage.
60% of parents report dissatisfaction during the first 3 years of a child’s life
Whether your child is a toddler or a teen, this statistic is staggering. It shows the impact that parenting can have on a relationship. You see, when your first child was born, a new relationship was born as well, you and your spouse became parents, in addition to being spouses. This transition can be difficult for many. Parenting is particularly challenging because your kids needs change over time as they face different stages in life. There is a lot of information out there on how to parent a child, but detailed information on the nuances of raising a child as a couple is sorely lacking. With my help, a trained Relationship and Parenting Counselor, it is possible to get on the same page with how to parent your children and experience once again a fulfilling and satisfying marriage.
BECOME PARENTS THAT ARE A UNITED FRONT
It is paramount for parents to present a united front in front of their kids. Not only because kids can wear you down and your partner’s support can go a long way, but also because many children or teens can identify points of conflict and play each parent against each other to get something they want. With my guidance and experience, parents can learn to be there for each other, encouraging and hold themselves accountable, and provide their kids the nurturing structure they need.
