Coach - Personal & Business

As parents we spend countless hours trying to please, cajole, fix or talk our child out of unhappiness, reaping limited results. Our most powerful response? Choosing to feel good. 

Counterintuitive? Yes. Incredibly loving? Absolutely. Effective? Definitely.

On Thursday, April 26th from 7 - 8:30 p.m. come join other parents in learning the benefits of staying calm and loving especially when your child is unhappy.

You will:

Acquire a powerful perspective, allowing you to be clear, creative, consistent and compassionate 

* Get out of the role of emotional caretaker to express genuine love and caring

* Discover the benefits of empowering your child to be in charge of his/her emotional wellness

Come join me, Melissa Ford, parent coach with over 16 years of experiencing supporting families and their children.
