Welcome to Parent Resources

Parenthood is a life-changer. The enormity of this 24/7 commitment makes being a parent both amazingly fulfilling and downright difficult. You do the best you can with the knowledge you have, and it’s never easy. But, as Dr. C. Everett Koop once said, “Life affords no greater responsibility, no greater privilege, than the raising of the next generation.”

Right now, you may be feeling exhausted, frustrated, hopeless, “at your wits end,” or any combination of those things – you’re tired of the anger, the power struggles, feeling like your kids just don’t listen to you. You are not alone. Every issue or frustration that brings a tear to your eye, a bellow to your throat, or steals your sleep at night has been experienced many times before by other parents just like you.

The answers you seek, the changes you crave, and the parenting joys you desire are all within your reach. But even if you had all the time and energy in the world, you might never be able to discover them without help. Parent coaching gives you the tools you need to find a renewed sense of peace in your life and family. Together, we can lift the load from your shoulders.
