1 hour 30 minutesService Description
Parenting can be a tricky struggle, whether your child is 2 or 12 or 17! While there are many books and experts out there with their pre-written plans, the reality is that each of us lives in a unique family environment, and each of us has to find a way to parent that is in line with our own personal values. What used to naturally be taught and shared between grandmothers, mothers, aunts and sisters is increasingly challenging to come by. With almost two decades of experience, Heather offers a coaching-based approach coupled with tested strategies and one on one support to help you determine the best way forward for your child and family as you aim to navigate your parenting journey as smoothly as possible.
