The future depends on good parenting
It is no secret that what a chef puts into the soup is exactly what the chef gets out. The same is true of parenting. Research shows good ingredients yield positive results in terms of social-emotional-cognitive function, and adverse ingredients yield poor cognitive function and attention, as well as poor social skills and poor emotional adaptation.
PARENTING SERVICES & SUPPORT
Education, Consultation, & Groups
Newborn, Toddler, Adolescent
Parents of children of all ages need support, and we are here for you!
We do in-office consultations to design parenting strategies in alignment with your values and goals, or sometimes even to map out your values and goals.
We also do in-home consultations, during which we observe your child in action and your parenting in action, and help you design a behavior plan for you so that you can bonsai your babes in a way that maximizes your children's growth.
After the Divorce...
In the same vein in which IEPs (individual education plans) are good for every student, we believe that having an independent third party observe parenting patterns and family behaviors can be used to shore up the strengths of a family--even one divorcing--and help parents identify areas in which to take additional personal stock and shift some behaviors or limiting beliefs.
We can help you design and modify parenting plans, do pre-emptive and cooperative parenting evaluations, and act on behalf of the child(ren) as a guardian ad litem when families need help.
Newborn, Sibling, Adolescent Support
We are very good at getting today's families going with a Tribe, especially since families often live far away from relatives in our modern lives. We work to bring groups of 6-10 couples together from a few months before baby's arrival through the first year of life.
When a second child enters the family, we offer sibling groups, for which we like to observe elder children interacting.
Additionally, parents of adolescents are a unique group requiring almost as much support as those of the early learning years.
These series are 8 weeks long and are hosted at the homes of each couple/family.
