My Mission

There is so much fear surrounding parenting in our society – both within ourselves (“If I don’t {fill-in-the-blank} then my child will be spoiled and out of control”) and in the parent-child relationship (threats, punishment, control, shame, etc.). This is how most of us were raised and it’s how we’re conditioned to raise our own kids. But this fear erodes at our instincts and intuition, our confidence, and most importantly, our connection with our children. My mission is to help eliminate this fear and reclaim our intuition and positive influence as parents. To trust our children and to trust God’s perfect design. I believe the key to this change is to tend to the heart. To heal our own hearts. To nurture, connect with, guide and inspire our children’s hearts – to influence them in a Christlike way. To work with them rather than against them. My goal is to offer a different perspective than the mainstream, and to help shift our society’s view of children and the parent-child relationship. Please join me on my journey!
