I've fallen so many times as a parent,
I can't even count.
The up's -n- downs to parenting are infinite.
Because the ability to
and to ultimately blossom again
in parenting is exponential.
We have to be willing to fall,
to rise again- even stronger.
If you celebrate Easter,
I hope you had a wonderful holiday!
We certainly did.
Here's my thoughts on the significance of Easter.
This spring time of year reminds me
of the importance of rebirth + renewal.
That there is no shame (absolutely none!)
in messing up.
For in every challenge,
and every lesson,
every single hard time
--- there is also opportunity
to keep growing + changing.
To learn and become more + more of who YOU are.
This is the work we do together in positive parenting.
We help you become more you.
But this work is vulnerable + scary.
While I truly in my heart-of-hearts know:
We can do it.....
That everything is just an opportunity
to step into that blossom of who we are.
I also know it's wayyyyyyy hard.
We need each other.
And the old way isn't going to cut it.
The cool thing is we have each other.
And it's our children who are leading us
(sometimes dragging us lol)
into the new way.
During this spring season of rebirth + renewal,
I encourage you to keep believing in yourself.
To be open to change,
in big + small ways.
To keep trying.
To find the strength + courage
to try the same thing
in a new or slightly different way.
And to stay tuned for more details
in a couple days of ways
our community is supporting you
to grow + blossom.
To become that full essence of who you are.
Here's to a time of maximum blossoming for all us.
You Got This.
Lots of love,

Hi friends, I write from the heart to tell my life story, and the story of those in my neighborhood called life. Research shows that our children's emotional & mental health is contingent upon us parents being able to tell our life story, or "coherent narrative." This is my coherent narrative, my life story in the making, with some of what I love in life too. My goal is to share my life in a way that is real, uplifting & positive- sometimes serious, sometimes fun. In my practice, I inspire parents to empowerment through reclaiming our life stories and learning respectful discipline. My work is my offering to our children- our future. Wishing you all a happy family!
