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 together they could find a solution.

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 Skills 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.
