When I became a parent, I became a step parent first and it was so incredibly hard. I struggled with knowing how to parent effectively and took on what I knew how to do. Most of us have been raised with the "Power Over" or "Power Under" style of parenting and I flowed between the two, either being so militant and controlling the kids couldn't relax and just be, to staying away in order to avoid conflict. Instead of finding the middle ground and finding my pause button I became resentful and avoidant. I wasn't being my true self and nothing felt good.
Then I had a child of my own and I saw myself, going right back to default as she moved into toddlerhood.
I knew I wanted to parent differently and I just didn't know how.
I knew I needed help.
Fast forward, I also became a sleep consultant and I realized that it was soooo much bigger than sleep issues and many times it was a disconnect between child and parent. I knew I needed skills to help these families come together as a connected team.
When I signed up for Jai Instsitute for Parenting, I knew I was going to be in for a change but I had no idea how life changing this transformation would be for me as well as the clients I work with. I'm so excited to be able to share what I learned with you all and in a group setting so there's a community of support around the harder parts of the transformation.
This process is not easy but you and your child(ren) deserve to feel safe, connected and heard.

Parent Coaching Options
I decided early on that this program needed to be in a group setting so that parents could have the realization that they are not alone in the parenting game.
There will be resistance, mistakes and people going back to default but when you have a community behind you, understanding where you are at, it's easier to pick back up and try again. It's not about being a perfect parent. There's no such thing. It's about being a connected parent and having tools that help you to co-regulate with your child so that unwanted behaviors aren't such a trigger.
This program is 12 weeks and is held on Zoom.
