Increase Your Parenting Toolbox
Parenting is not an easy gig. There are so many ideas, thoughts and ways to parent. How do you know what is right for you? I personally believe that knowledge is power and the more tricks and tips you have to deal with behaviours and typical developmental milestones the more effective parent you will be.
It is my goal to help you build your parenting toolbox. The key is to build your toolbox with the tips and tricks that work for you. I will provide you with ideas based on your parenting style.
What gives me the right to say I can help you? You are already an expert of your child. I will use my experience as a mom and as a professional to add tips and tricks to your parenting toolbox. My goal is to empower you. If your concerns are not my areas of expertise, I will guide you in the right direction to receive the support and information you require.
Call today to set up a free 15-minute consultation where we can discuss your concerns and ways I can help. Contact Brenda at 403-652-7111.
