Why I Do What I Do

When I was a teacher, upset parents and defensive kids came to see me for conferences about the students’ behavior or academics. My superpower was bridging the gap between them so they could begin to talk again.

At the time, I thought everyone could do it. Now, I realize that it’s a specific skill set, built upon years and years of conversation and compromise. It didn’t have a name back then, but today we call it Parent Coaching.

I thought teaching would prepare me for parenthood, but when I first saw that urine soaked stick change, dread filled me. What did I know about being a mommy? What if I screwed up my baby’s life?

I was the teacher of tweens and teens, not the mommy of babies! 

I kept my fears to myself, so I didn’t have anyone to challenge my notions. Instead, anxiety diminished her toddler years, and flared up every couple of months after that… until the day she turned nine. On that day, she blew out her birthday candles, and announced, “Mommy, now that I’m almost a teenager–“

“Whoa! Hold on there.” I leaned back as my husband and I blinked at each other. “You’re not almost a teenager. I’ll  tell you when you’re almost a teenager, and this isn’t  it! 

Surprisingly, I wasn’t shaken. True, she was ready for my expertise a bit earlier than expected, but forewarned is forearmed. And, I was ready. My years of teaching had prepared me well.
 
Did we have conflicts? Of course, we did. Did I question my sanity on occasion? Or, hers? AbsolutelyEvery Mom does.

But, at that point, after 15+ years of successfully dealing with parent/teen relationships under my belt, I had more tools and strategies than the average mom.

Parent Coaching is a form of personal development in which your Coach supports you in achieving specific goals for your relationship with your children. Can you figure it out by yourself? Probably, but
getting coached is much easier than making it up as you go along. Deborah will help you prepare for what’s definitely coming and help you avert what may be coming.

Life Coaching is a form of personal development in which your Coach supports you in achieving specific personal goals.
Getting coached is much easier than making it up as you go along. Why make it up as you go along when you can get help?

During this free session, you’ll share the aspects of your life you wish to change, and then select the one you want to tackle first. Together we’ll outline a plan of action, and then you’ll decide whether to implement your plan on your own, or, with Deborah coaching you through it.

Group Coaching is scheduled meet-ups where you can share your challenges in a safe space. In this judgment-free zone, everyone shares:
(1) a win since the last meeting,
(2) a challenge needing a solution, and
(3) a goal to accomplish by the next meeting.

Group Coaching is less expensive than 1-on-1 Coaching.

Many people are energized by groups. If that’s you, this is a great alternative. The groups are small enough to be personal, but large enough to provide a variety of input.

With things being the way they are, plans for an in-person retreat for 2021 are on hold. However, I’m looking into the possibility of holding an online conference instead. The Merry Meddling Newsletter will keep you posted.

Coaching is a form of developmental help in which your Coach supports you in achieving specific parenting or personal goals. 

Getting coached is much easier than making it up as you go along. In our System, you get: 
|  Training |  Accountability |  Guidance |

Yes, you can figure it out yourself, but why spend your time re-inventing the wheel, when you could be going for a ride?

Absolutely not! Although Parenting Coaching is a form of Life Coaching, many adults with children seek Life Coaching in order to corral their self-care, knowing that taking care of themselves has a positive ripple effect on their family.

Think of Life Coaching with Deborah as having an accountability partner for a New Year’s Eve Resolution… any time of year! If you can create a goal for it, we can work on anything you choose!

Life Coaching is NOT Therapy in disguise.

A therapist explores a deep understanding of behaviors and patterns, based on past experiences.

Life Coaches focus on helping you modify present actions/behaviors. We measure your success as progress toward achieving your desired outcomes, and reaching your specific goals.

If one of the offered packages doesn’t suit your needs, we can discuss a customized program.

Webinars and courses will be added soon. Subscribe to Merry Meddling, the monthly newsletter, to get more info and updates.
