Program Topics

Once we unwind and settle in, we'll start creating your ROADMAP OUT OF OVERWHELM.  In your sessions you will learn how to...

- Design smoothly running routines... so that you can start and end your day without feeling frazzled by power struggles and can enjoy the precious time at the end of the day to connect with your partner and kids with energy and hope.

- Get crystal clear about limits and expectations... so that you can be more successful in setting limits that stick in different zones of life... whether you're at the park, rushing out the door, or at the dinner table, you'll know what you want to happen and why.

- Balance your weekly schedule... so that you can build in time for self-care like exercise and alone time, your relationship, and more relaxed 1-on-1 time connecting positively with your kids. 

- Get connected and stay connected... including how to repair our relationships so that you can have the kind of relationship where, as teenagers, your kids come to you with their problems because you share mutual respect and trust.

- Create a vision for your family for 2020... where do you want to be in a year as a parent?  What would that look like?  When we know where we are going, we can break the journey into manageable steps and take them one by one to get there!
