Parenting after a change: Sometimes something happens that changes our life; a divorce, a death in the family, a traumatic event; and we are left to figure out how to take care of ourselves and our children after this transition. It is hard enough to deal with it ourselves, but how do we parent after this event? what do we tell our children? what do they need from us to overcome this life transition with the least amount of negative consequences? You, as a parent, have the greatest influence in your children, and how they handle challenges. I can help you so that you feel more prepared and supported in this difficult journey.
Parenting adolescents: this is a stage of rapid changes and as a parent, we are not always prepared for the difficulties of this stage. I talk more at length about counseling teens in the section called “adolescents” but parents can change their teen’s behavior by using effective parenting strategies and techniques. It’s never too late to gain new parenting skills that are very effective in helping your adolescent transition this stage with a positive outcome. As a parent of two adolescents myself, I test these techniques in a daily basis.
Parenting a new baby: this is the best time to get support and guidance in parenting techniques and skills. You need lots of support at this stage to deal with the changes that a new baby brings to your life so that you are able to keep the balance in your relationships, career, and personal goals. Starting this beautiful journey with the right skills can help you in achieving a more contented and balanced life.
