Mothers In Training is a representation of my efforts to help the community of moms in this generation. No man, or in this case, woman, is an island and we need each other. Everybody has a niche, a special something to offer humanity. My special something is helping moms become better moms by encouraging, supporting, enriching and educating. Welcome to my site.
Do you ask yourself if you're ruining your kids in the wee hours of the night? Did you promise you wouldn't make the same mistakes you saw growing up, only to find yourself repeating them regardless? Does the opinions of family and friends somehow blur the boundaries of your authority as the parent?
These questions, as well as others, are the springboard for parent coaching. The goal is to raise a great family and have wonderful relationships within; we all get that! How to arrive at that destination is the challenge, the maze, if you will. Have you ever walked through a cornfield maze? It sure helps to have someone along, someone not stuck in the maze with you but someone who is familiar with family mazes and has some tools to help you make your way to the finish line so you can stand tall and walk proud knowing ....YOU DID IT!!!!
I wished for years that someone had been there for me, someone who would offer suggestions without condemning me if I chose not to use them, someone who would listen to my fears and concerns and give me a word or two that actually made a difference in my day, my immediate situation. The time came when I realized it was time for me to be that someone, that coach, that mentor. Life is funny that way ;-)
