Do you feel like you lost yourself to your motherhood? Like you don’t know what lights you up anymore or who you truly are? This episode is for you. Join me as I share my journey of self-discovery, and how it’s taken me right to where I needed to be. I always truly enjoyed going to school, getting good grades and pleasing my teachers… but somehow, I wasn’t ever fully immersed in a true “love of learning”. I did it more for the outcome, cared more about the grades, than any true learning. This has shifted over time, but the shift was intentional, and the results were huge. I think you’ll enjoy hearing this sorry and how it relates to helping you find your passion again.What we cover:How my learning journey was stunted by my fixed mindsetHow I discovered a growth mindsetHow you can find your passion too---I would be honored to be your coach and help you get the changes you want to see in your life.

Have you ever thought about scientists and their process? I think it’s a lot like what we do in parenting. Hypothesize, test, observe, test again, change things, fail. I think scientists can teach us a lot about parenting. Failure is at the core of what a scientist does… but instead of feeling shame and discouragement, they use it to learn, grow and create new ideas to test. We can become the parent scientist and transform our frustrations and expectations into curiosity and connection. Let’s figure out how.What we talk about in this episode:What scientists doThe importance of observationHow we can become parenting scientistsHow to develop our own theorems about our children---I would be honored to be your coach and help you get the changes you want to see in your life.

Have you ever heard of what “radical” actually means? It might not be what you think! Let’s uncover its basic meaning and how it relates to our natural parenting styles. Once we can unpack our own emotional and mindset baggage, connection is at our core. As humans, we are naturally wired for connection. As we age, limiting beliefs, others opinions, and situations around us arise that cloud our natural connection and inclination to parent in a positive way. Just like this thinking clouded us, it can be unclouded as well, let’s figure out where to start.What we cover in this episode:How natural this form of parenting isClient examples of natural parenting despite lack of “knowledge”How you are your own parenting expert alreadyDigging through the emotional and mental baggage is what uncovers this inner expert---I would be honored to be your coach and help you get the changes you want to see in your life.

Your thoughts affect everything… especially Your relationships. We often feel like our children are disrespectful and rude, that they are unkind on purpose, or that they should be… fill in the blank here with all the “shoulds” for you.  These hidden stories in your mind have a huge impact on your interactions with your children, huge. This is major. If you want to start healing your relationships with your kids, it all starts with you and your thoughts.What we dig into today:How our thoughts affect our relationshipsExpectations leading to frustrationThe manuals we have for the people in our livesHow we can reconnect and shift things right now---I would be honored to be your coach and help you get the changes you want to see in your life.

This might seem counter intuitive, but the most impactful way to change your relationships with others is by changing your relationship with yourself. Your position on you is determined by a few things… your commitment, your thoughts, and your beliefs. When these things change, your relationship with you changes. When that changes, everything else in your life changes. Do you want a better relationship with someone, the ability to set and achieve goals, and to get more done and truly enjoy your life? Then start building a better relationship with YOU starting right now.What we talk about today:What a relationship isHow our thoughts about us affect our relationshipSelf-belief and the difference between confidence and self-confidenceHow we can change our thoughts and beliefs and create new relationships with us---I would be honored to be your coach and help you get the changes you want to see in your life.

We have a higher and lower brain. Lower brain thinking is: illogical irrational, highly emotional… maybe a little crazy sometimes. Parenting and making decisions from that space is damaging our relationships. I’ll show you how to make the switch. Moving into our higher brain is a powerful skill to learn how to do. When we can notice we are in the lower brain and move out of it, our decisions and actions become better. Learning more about our future self can help us switch our mindset to our more forward-thinking higher brain and create thriving relationships.   What we discuss today:Emotional vs Logical brainWhat parenting is like from each brainThe power in our 2.0How to get to know our future selvesHow to harness the power of our 2.0---I would be honored to be your coach and help you get the changes you want to see in your life.

One of the most powerful tools I've learned from Brooke Castillo at the Life Coach School is The Model. It’s SO good.

When you recognize the source of your thoughts and feelings, you can change everything.What we dig into this episode:What parenting from different emotions looks likeWhat The Model is and how it worksWhy we should care about managing our mind regularly---I would be honored to be your coach and help you get the changes you want to see in your life.

Positive parenting goes by so many names, but the gist is always the same: relationship and connection above all. The real power of this philosophy is that children naturally want to love their parents, be close to them, and respect them. As we make developing this connection with our children the primary focus; and focus less on doing things to mitigate the negative behaviours, those behaviours will actually decrease over time. This sounds so strange to so many people, it sounds like avoidance and denial, but its not, it is the best way to develop lasting change for even the most difficult behaviours. The reason is that when your child has this radical connection with you, they will want to make you happy, they will be drawn to do good things because they will love to feel the love that comes from those actions. When a child makes mistakes, which they still will, they know of their own accord that they have done wrong. They don’t need that discomfort or pain to be magnified by the very person who is supposed to love them the most and help comfort them through these feelings. One of the biggest mistakes I see parents make, is getting in the way of the natural cycle that goes on in a child when they do something wrong. Focus on building radical connection above all else.This episode of The Freedom Moms Podcast covers:What positive parenting is and why I call it “radical connection”What it is not, and some myths around itIt’s focus on relationship above all---I would be honored to be your coach and help you get the changes you want to see in your life.

Things continued to improve as I focussed on shifting my mindset which allowed me to control my reactions towards him, we both began to freak out less. I didn’t have words to describe what was going on, the change, until I found life coaching. I finally had a way to explain the shift. Life coaching is the bridge to better connection with your children and lasting change in behaviour. I started taking the Life Coaching tools and mindset work that I was learning and pairing it with all of my years of knowledge about positive parenting and started noticing bigger and bigger changes. Our home is an entirely different place than it was back then, this is why, this is how. You can do this too.In this episode of The Freedom Moms Podcast:Positive parenting and how it started to work for usThe changes that happened in my child’s behaviour over time, and mine as wellWhat our home is nowThe HOW behind the changeThe pivotal role that life coaching played in our relationship---I would be honored to be your coach and help you get the changes you want to see in your life.

Parenting my child and his difficult behaviours just kept getting worse and worse until I felt like I couldn’t handle it anymore and finally reached out for help. The changes our family experienced were very profound, and I never expected what I was going to have to do to get them. This is the starting point to one of the biggest revelations in parenting I’ve ever had. The core of what we did and why we got the results we did influences everything I do in my coaching practice. The change in my son’s behaviour didn’t come quickly; but it did come, and as I look back at it and what we went through I am amazed at how much progress we made after just that one session and the book she recommended.In this episode of The Freedom Moms Podcast we cover:What a meltdown looked like in our homeWhat my story about the situation wasWhy it’s not him that needed to changeHow shifting my expectations changed everything for us both---I would be honored to be your coach and help you get the changes you want to see in your life.
