Parents these days are under a great deal of pressure to “parent perfectly.” From psychologists to social scientists, journalists to weekend bloggers, everyone has an opinion about the do’s and don’ts for raising healthy, well-adjusted children in today’s fast-paced world. Parents often searching for support when they are feeling vulnerable and frustrated are left with “quick fix” strategies that, in the end, further alienate their children and leave them feeling even more discouraged.


In this upbeat, informational and power packed Parenting Workshop, you will learn why a “less is more approach” to parenting will put you in the drivers seat as true leaders in your family and learn how to:


  • Invest in the relationship with your children in ways that foster independence and self-reliance and minimize power struggles, disrespect and defiance.

  • Support the development of self-discipline, self-control and discernment without punishment or rewards.

  • How to quit your job as the maid and empower your kids so they become cooperative and contributing members of the family.

  • Learn how to deal with sibling rivalry without pitting the kids against each other.

  • Create routines and systems that support the unique nature of your family and make life smoother for everyone concerned

  • Remain emotionally available for your kids when they seem frustrated, fearful, overwhelmed, angry or just throwing a good old-fashioned temper tantrum.  

  • And finally, how to keep your eye on the long-term responsibility of parenting and support the development of competencies that support children as they mature.


In other words, LESS nagging, reminding, lecturing, yelling, from you and less pushback, tantrums and disrespect from the kids and MORE cooperation, love, fun, connection and family bliss for everyone.


There isn’t a one-size-fits-all magic solution that will lead you into bliss but there is a one-sized-feels-awesome for-all outcome: a happy, stable family with children who can think for themselves and parents who can turn the lights out at the end of the day and say, I feel good about where we’re headed.


Vicki provides insight as to why all the over parenting, nagging, hovering, and helicopter parenting is not working out for you or your child and identifies five of the biggest parenting obstacles and how you can “clear away the clutter” and create clarity that will guide your family for years.
