Being a parent seems to have become more complicated in the 21st century than ever before. There are so many competing ideas of what is the best way to be a parent that it can be confusing and overwhelming. Using sound child development principles, Monica has been helping parents to “think about their thinking” and connect with their children for over 30 years.

For the past several years, she has been doing online parent education, both 1:1 and in small groups. Sometimes there is a need for a solution to a particular issue. More often than not, there is a need to contextualize grand theories and somehow apply them on the ground, in a family’s own life. When someone asks if xxxx is the best way to do yyyy for kids, she typically does not have an “always” or “never” response. There is rarely a one-size-fits-all answer to any of those questions. More often she’ll say it depends and will begin to explore the various factors involved so they can make the best decision for their family.

Feel free to contact Monica for a free 30 minute consultation to see if she could work well with you, to help you and your family.

Help on My Parenting Journey

I can’t even begin with how much Monica has helped me on my parenting journey, but I will try. I started out my parenting following what I had grown up with.   When my son was not thriving I started to question if there was another way. ……. I knew what I didn’t want to do but was unsure what a different path even looked like. Monica’s gentle but straight forward approach was a huge help for me in reconnecting with my kids in a more compassionate, peaceful way. She has such a wide experience with all different children, ages, developmental stages and personalities that each situation I had trouble with she had something to help and add.  Fast forward 6 years…..I have an amazing relationship with my kids, and Monica is a big reason for this. I have often heard her voice in my mind as I question how to react haha. I am forever grateful to such caring souls like her for sharing their knowledge and passion for our precious children.   – Sheree F., Australia
