One of Many Mums: From toddlers to teens – working together for happier, calmer families
Parenting is one of the hardest things to balance for many mums. From the decisions you have to make right from the start – about feeding, dummies, childcare, whether to return to work, and so on – to the complex issues that we all face as they grow up – school, friendships, boundaries, screen time – we all often feel stretched, guilty, worn out, uncertain and unbalanced.
One of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves is time and space to be more conscious of our decisions and behaviour around our kids. Finding your network of support, those other mums you trust and turn to, people you can share your worries and wins with, people who can listen without judgment and guide you, can be tough.
Putting together elements of the One of Many Coaching programme along with my training and experience teaching BabyCalm and ToddlerCalm (and of course my own experiences as a parent, with all its ups and downs!), plus many years working with teenagers, I am now offering a coaching programme that will guide you through the difficulties of being a balanced, conscious parent.
If you find yourself slipping into Superwoman mode, or even worse constantly being Shouty Mum or just simply feeling overwhelmed with trying to juggle everything all the time, then this is the course for you. This course will be piloted as a face to face group programme in Hope, Derbyshire.
During the programme, you will explore your values around being a parent and how this affects your behaviour; learn about how to deal with your own emotions, and those of your children; find out about praise and rewards, and how to use them effectively; and help you to work out for yourself how to be the best parent you can be. This is about nourishing yourself, forgiving yourself for those mistakes we all make, and learning how to trust your judgement when doing what is right for you and your family.
What you will get:
- 6 group coaching sessions with a maximum of 6 people
- Email support between sessions
- Membership of a secret facebook group for your group, where you can support each other, ask questions and share your wins
- Tools and techniques to support you on your parenting journey, and help you to live a balanced life
- Strategies to support your children to develop resilience, respect and self-discipline
