Helping You Help Your Kids is My Mission

 

You are your elementary-school child’s best friend, her confidant, her playmate. You spend time with your son, and fish with him and play video games. But you know you are not a real substitute for the friendships you want your child to have.

  • You wonder about your child’s baffling behaviors, he says he wants to have friends and then he ignores the overtures of a possible playmate.
  • Your preschooler is shy or quirky, so she doesn’t mix in.
  • He doesn't have play dates alienates other kids?
  • She is left out most of the time.
  • You thought she would grow out of it, but the pattern continues.
  • You are not sure what to do but you know something must change.

I want to help you be able to see, hear and respond to your child in a new way that changes everything. I can you help your child become her best self: socially engaged, confident, and open to the unlimited world of learning, connection and life. 

My book and my strategies can help you learn how to cope with the daily social dilemmas that come up and will teach you how to help your child. So they are no longer so alone and so they can make friends and have the kind of relationships you want for them.

Each playdate for my daughter ended in catastrophe. The Play Better Plan changed everything. It gave me a road map I could follow. It took a few months, but taking it slowly and in small bite-sized steps, we improved.

I will teach you how to coach your child

Most parents have already been putting forth huge efforts to improve their child’s social plight, but nothing has brought about any lasting change. Once they understand what professional coaches understand and see how to use basic coaching techniques, that all changes.  “Coach”, at the end of the day, is just another word for parent with a game plan. Coaching enables you to step out of the fruitless cycle of scolding or imploring in the “why can’t you just” mode, and into the role of more knowledgeable, supportive mentor and guide. I want to help you be able to see, hear and respond to your child in a new way that changes everything. Your coaching will help your child become her best self: socially engaged, confident, and open to the unlimited world of learning, connection and life. As a parent you are on the front lines.
