I, Brenda McSween, am the very proud mother of a wonderful young man and the extra caring adult (aka stepmom) to two wonderful young adult males. When I became a mom I was floored at all the conflicting information that is available to parents. It became my mission to help others find the best solutions to their parenting concerns. My dream of being a Parent Advisor became a reality and Parenting Foundations was born.
I have over 20 years of professional experience working with children and families and hold a Bachelors of Child Studies Degree from Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I am passionate about helping parents navigate through the wonderful adventure of raising children. In 2013, I became a Pediatric Sleep Consultant. I felt the training would add to my skill set and give parents a choice of how they teach their children to sleep effectively.
I am a firm believer that there is often more than one way to do things and that offering choices empowers parents to do what suits them and their families the best. I sift through the massive amounts of information available and offer suggestions to enhance your parenting style and/or your ability to help your child sleep. My goal is to help parents feel they are making the best parenting and sleep choices for themselves and their child(ren).
