And regardless of whether you're a parent or not, please forward this message on to any parents you know who, like me, are passionate about being the best parents they can be.
Now if you are a parent…
Are there certain things about parenting that have eluded you that you wish you had answers to? Things like how to:
- Discipline your child without ruining his or her self-esteem?
- Help your child be successful, both academically and socially?
- Get quick and easy nutritious meals on the table?
- Protect your children from the dangers of cyberspace?
- Teach your children the skills they need to avoid bullying, and to stand up when they see it happening?
- Teach your children about money and responsibility?
If you've wondered the answers to any of these questions, you're not alone.
(oh believe me, you're not alone!)
With cell phones, computer access, changing educational requirements, a global economy, a world view and yet isolation in our neighborhoods and communities, parenting can sometimes be a confusing and downright daunting task. It was challenging before and now there's so much more complexity.
Fortunately, the internet HAS created greater access to information of all kinds, including parenting. It's also helping us connect to other kinds of resources and experts in ways that previously were just not possible. It's giving us opportunities to reach out and bridge all those challenges in real, practical, personal, and accessible ways.
On that note, I am grateful to officially announce my "coming out" into the parenting space.
I'll be creating a new website, resources, and programs, to help support parents in their unique, challenging, and very rewarding adventures. And as part of this "coming out," I'm going to be a featured speaker on the upcoming FREE "Great Parenting Show" hosted by Jacqueline Green.
The Great Parenting Show is now in its 5th season, and Jacqueline has invited over 25 leading experts in parenting related fields to share their wisdom, humor, and more importantly, their approaches, on just how to most effectively parent our children in these quick changing times.
I will be speaking alongside experts such as Dr. John Gray, Marie Diamond, Laura Silva, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Tana Amen, Shelly Lefkoe, and my dear dear friend Farhana Dhalla (who has inspired, supported, and "nudged" me to bring my parenting work to a larger audience).
I really feel that being a great parent isn't just about having good strategies to help your kids "grow up," it's also about growing ourselves as people… and allowing our transformations to be the examples, foundations, and mediums by which we raise great kids.
That's why I'm grateful to know that in addition to some of the basic "how to get your kid to do what you want" kinds of topics that all parents want answers to, some of the speakers will also focus on on helping you take the edge off of overwhelm and stress, feel more calm and energized, bring more fun and joy into your family's life, and of course give you tools to parent with confidence and easy.
And when I take the virtual stage, I will be speaking about "The Myth of Perfect Parenting: Why Your Self-Critical Thoughts Prevent You From Being the Best Parent and How to Overcome Them."
I've been told that I'll also be fielding live questions, so if you've ever wanted to pick my brain about parenting this will be the time.
I've been wanting to share my parenting perspectives with a larger audience for years, and the time was never quite right. Now that time has come, and I hope that you and other parents will join me in this wonderful, mysterious, rewarding, and oh-so-challenging adventure. Click the button below to get all the call-in details!
Just in case you can't make the live calls, they'll be recorded. So for a couple days after each show, you'll be able to listen to the replays for free as well.
And if you know any parents who would benefit from a resource like this, please forward this email on to them or click the links below to share it on Facebook.
