Empowering Kids (and parents) to Make Positive Change
Operating as usual
😂What you see (especially in this pic) largely depends on how you look at it.😂 Perspective is everything, especially with our kids. I don’t know who said this first, but I love it: “Your child isn’t giving you a hard time, your child is having a hard time.” It doesn’t matter if they’re 8 or 18, this is true. No matter what is going on, first try to understand and connect, then decide on consequences, if necessary. 💕
This is a great way to spread love and kindness with your kiddos! I’ll be sending 💜
All of this! Your kids need you to show up in an authentic way. It empowers them and gives them permission to be where they are. You’re also modeling the behavior you hope they exhibit. #itsokaynottobeokay

@Julianna W. Miner - Rants from Mommyland nailed it! We need to remember… if we are struggling, imagine how hard it is for our teens. I truly believe they don’t come out of the womb trying to be difficult. More often than not, they are doing the best they can. 🤪Just. Like. You.🤪
Lesson from a Life Coach. Kids tell me stuff…stuff they don’t know how to say to you.￼￼ Our kids are feeling a lot of ways these days. It’s hard to be a kid, no matter how good or easy you think they have it. Listen to your kids. Try to understand. When you can’t understand, just be there with them.￼ Often times we don’t need to find a solution. We definitely don’t need to tell them they should feel a different way. Sometimes the best thing we can do is just “sit in the suck” because sometimes it feels like… life just sucks.￼￼ So sit there for a bit. Just don’t unpack and live there.
Take care of you. Self care is not selfish. It is necessary. 💕

I know I’ve been quiet on Facebook. I’ve been busy ingiting the light! #watchthemglow
Listen to understand, not to respond.
Sometimes, they don't need us to fix things. They just need a shoulder to lean on or a listening ear. 💗
I absolutely L😂V E this!
Kids are smart.
Kids are resourceful.
Kids are awesome.

I love my job so much! It means the whole world to me to know I make a difference. This is from the mom of a 14yo client I saw tonight. ❤️
Dream big, then take one tiny step in that direction. You’re the author of your story. Write a good one.💚
If there is one positive to Covid and education, it’s this!
Florida removes high-stakes consequences from spring testing Parents and educators have been asking for this move for several months.
A much needed reminder. We also need to evolve. 😉 Thank you Raising Teens Today
I’m about a week behind my self-imposed deadline of March 23rd to have my first rough draft completed, ￼so I am making up for lost time today! ￼

Ten reasons to write a book
More than ten, actually. Millions of books will be published this year and for good reason. People rarely regret the effort. Everyone has their own, but here are some of the reasons to get you started:
It clarifies your thinking.
It leaves behind a record of where you are in this moment.
It’s clearly not going to be a worldwide mass-market bestseller, so you can focus only on the people who want to hear from you.
It’s a project that is completely and totally up to you.
Because it’s a generous way to share.
As hobbies go, it’s energy-efficient, takes up very little space and is portable.
Because then you get to write another one.
It will increase your authority in your field.
We need to hear your ideas, they matter.
And then you become an author.
It’s not that hard to publish it when you’re done.
The publishing is a bonus, a way to seek completion, not the point of the exercise.
And… it’s not as lonely as you think.
It’s okay to be who you are. Tell your kids. 💕
Or in my case.... Design/create a job you love... This morning I had the privilege of talking with 2 amazing moms, who reached out because they want their kid and teen to learn skills and strategies to help them be more confident and assertive. They want their kids to be comfortable in their own skin and to continue to be true to who they really are. I’m super excited to meet these kids and begin working together! Best. Job. Ever. My office is pretty cool, too!
Exciting news!!! 📖 I’M FINALLY (yes, I’m yelling) WRITING A BOOK! 📖 It’s messy and I haven’t decided on a title yet, but it’s a book for parents about how to connect and communicate more effectively with your kids. You know... cuz kids tell me stuff. 😉 I’ll need some beta readers and a launch team. More on that down the road, but I wanted to officially announce it here, because you know if it’s on Facebook, it must be true! 🤣🤣🤣 No, actually... it’s true! I’m S🤩 excited‼️
Kids and teens are under tremendous pressure and stress. I talk about the importance breath with many of my clients. Being intentional with breath is one of the best ways to self-regulate and get the amygdala (the emotional control center of the brain) back under control. This is a fantastic opportunity for your kids to learn how to self-regulate and feel like they have a little control.

How we, parents, define success has a life-long impact on how our children see themselves and measure their worth. Life’s a journey, not a destination... cliché, I know... but really... what’s the goal? ￼This is a personal question that only you can answer.
You are not what happens to you. Be the hero. You are the author, after all. Wishing you good health, happiness, courage and strength in 2021.
Life is hard right now. Be gentle with yourself. Then it’ll be easier to be gentle with your kids. Hang in there. 💕
❤️🤍💙 Kids & teens tell me stuff.
Parents... “appear” is the key word.
👇🏼This👇🏼is what I’m hearing lately.
Your kids need you. ❤️🤍💙
A 13 yo client recently shared how difficult it is to navigate the technology piece of Algebra 1. Imagine having to use your mouse to show your work while at the same time having to open and change multiple tabs. 🤯 She was struggling but was afraid to speak up. One of her virtual classmates did try to politely ask the teacher to slow down a little. The teacher curtly responded that she needs to keep up. Needless to say, my client is now even less likely to ask for help. I know teachers are extremely stressed. They are trying to navigate uncharted waters as well. Let’s all, to the best of our ability, try to empathize and support each other. Kids and teachers alike. Talk to your kids and believe them if they tell you they’re struggling. Hang in there. We are all figuring it out together. 🥰
Y E S‼️
Kids and teens feel things in ways we parents can’t understand. Their experiences are real and true to them. They know how they feel, and it’s not your job to tell them to feel differently. Listen and be present. You don’t have to agree with them just believe them. 💕
Rolling into the first day of virtual school here in Palm Beach County like.... 🎶🎶🎶
Umm.... Yes, you do need an education. Just roll with it this year. Lots of speed bumps ahead, so take it slow. We will figure it out together.
Monday, August 31st is day 1️⃣ of virtual learning for public schools here in Palm Beach County. Moms and dads... just breathe. Your kids will take cues from you. There are many unknowns as you head into this school year. Your kids need you to be calm and ride the waves as they come. Don’t think about the last one. Don’t worry about the next one. Just be where you are. If your kids are overwhelmed and break down, remind them to breathe. Let them know you are in it together, and you will figure it out... together. Allow yourself and your kids some grace, and allow a little extra grace for their teachers. We’re better together. Just breathe. 💙
Yep, now more than ever. 👇🏼
Always, but especially now. Your kids are trying to tell you something. Listen.
