How I Became a Parent Coach

It was the summer of sunscreen and slippery kids.

Who would have guessed that an 18-year-old lifeguard having nightmares about letting small children drown would grow up to be a mom, much less a parent coach?

Not me!

And yet, here I am.

I became a parent coach by way of business school, corporate America, years of teaching, being humbled by my own kids, and finally learning what I was always looking for: how to be a good mom.

Watch this conversation (no Instagram account required) to get the whole story.

This is a really special episode because I also share:

Yes, this is the final episode of my weekly Instagram live conversations... for now.

Please enjoy my previous Parenting In Real Life episodes, which you can browse easily on my blog.

In the meantime, I'd love to hear: are you parenting based on conditioned beliefs, other people's expectations, or what you "should" be doing?

Or are you parenting from choices based on what matters to you, and from your desire to keep evolving as a parent?

It's a rhetorical question... and if you're not sure of the answer then let's talk.

Life is too short to live it for someone else.

Your children are too precious to raise them by default.

Here's to parenting on your terms.
