PARENTS…

  • Are you frustrated by your child’s behavior?

  • Being a parent with a plan, a parent who feels confident in their role
  • Learning to respond to your child, rather than reacting to their behavior

Parenting is one of our most important jobs. It’s never too late to develop a meaningful relationship with your child…a relationship that will continue to grow as your child grows. Your relationship with your child is important to their future.

I loved our family time during the holidays, and set my intention to soak up every moment. I also consciously planned a very low key slow week after the holidays to get back to life, organize, declutter, and let go of what […]

Lets Play with Our Kids…

The holiday season is upon us and it is so easy to get caught up in all of the hustle bustle! Before we know it, the holidays have come and gone and we’re left to wonder “Where did the time go?” and “I wish we spent more family time together”. It’s not that there isn’t enough time, although it certainly feels that way, but that we are not conscious of how we’re spending our time.
