Hello My Friends!

If you knew me, you'd know just how much I not only love and value being a mom, but how seriously I take it. Since being pregnant with my oldest daughter (who is almost 15!!) I saw my job as a mom as something I wanted to do with awareness, attention and intention. I didn't want to be the mom who was constantly chasing my tail, reacting and feeling overwhelmed by the unknowns, operating out of fear, or afraid of not being effective. I felt determined to not only be the best mom I could be, but to raise children to be the best that they could be.

And not to pat myself on the back too much (though I will!), I happen to have amazing daughters. At 12 and 14, they are not your typical teens; they are present, polite, mature, aware, compassionate, thoughtful, responsible, accountable, trustworthy, know themselves, speak their truth, are involved at school, care deeply about family, don't talk back or do too much eye-rolling (lol, okay, maybe only a little bit!). And while I know I had good material to work with, a lot of the above I relate back to how I parent them: how I'm present, and honor their uniqueness, parent them by meeting them where they are at, have realistic expectations and clear follow through, and one of the things that I think is most important, is I validate their emotional experience. I can say with 100% honesty that we have an amazing relationship, and they tell me all the time, "Mom, you need to write a book on being a good parent, because you're awesome, and you need to teach other moms how to do it like you do." Seriously - they do tell me this; I can't make this up! It's amazing to get this validation and feedback before they are mothers themselves!

Okay, so I haven't written the book - yet! - but I have just recorded a 7-class series (each class is less than 10 minutes; easy to listen to on-the-go!) for the app Simple Habit on how to be a patient and effective parent. This class is available for download as of today, and if you're ready to learn the 7 best tools to be a patient parent, then you're gonna want to check this out: Simple Habit Patient Parenting Therapy Class.
