P is for Parenting

Parenting a child is a job for life! Children are brought into this world, wired to be connected to the people they have a genetic connection to. If we engage in those early days and weeks of becoming a parent, a bond builds up that equips us for life, that is how we are made to be! It does not always come naturally to us, depending on how we were parented, but we can learn. Just as with a new romance, we want to spend lots of time with our beloved, watching every movement, listing to every sound, enjoying his interests while awake and movements and sounds while sleeping, – we call it “falling in love” and we do so similarly with our babies in the early weeks while they are so dependent on us for everything.

We are also required to support our children towards independence into adulthood, and so as they grow strong enough to crawl, to walk, to read and write, to play with friends, to join the team, our parenting-style needs to be engaged and age-appropriate, letting our child know that we are right there cheering them on to what they can achieve. It is not about us, it is about wanting the best for our child. The best for our child is to support them to achieve their goals.

As a practitioner I have become increasingly aware that work-life balance has become a critical issue, particularly in an age in which the demands of work are often at odds with home and family life. I am passionate about family life, it is the catalyst for every other relationship we have - in every other area of life, we expect to study, get a qualification, try something on appro , we want to feel in control - however it is the one area of life, that none of the above applies - Babies do not arrive with a parenting manual! It is my privilege as a Parent and Life Coach, to partner with you as you take hold of the challenges you are facing in your family, in your life and work with you , supporting you to achieve the decisions and outcomes you are choosing for your family and for your life. It is my job, to keep you on track, to cheer you on, when the "going gets tough". Through coaching, understanding of yourself and your child, and his or her phase of development will enable you to consciously develop a parenting style that will benefit you and your family.
