Testimonials

Look what parents are saying! 

“Step parenting is more challenging then we ever anticipated. The family dynamics of step-parenting adds a new meaning to the word stress. Connie taught us that being a step parent requires a different approach and needs to be handled like the merging of two companies. Her ability to assist us in establishing a realistic vision of how we wanted to organize and manage our new family according to OUR own family values was extremely helpful. Our only regret is that we didn’t seek out parent coaching services before our remarriage, planning ahead would have eliminated many struggles and increased our confidence as step-parents from the start. ”

“My coaching experience with Connie increased my confidence parenting my teens. As a father, I found the teen years to be very challenging and Connie provided me with many helpful insights and parenting tips. My positive attitude has even rubbed off on my teens.”

“Tabitha and I enjoyed working with Connie. We found it to be very helpful sitting down with each other and talking about some of our concerns about parenting. Issues were discussed that might not have been talked about otherwise. This provided us with more confidence as parents to be. We also found it interesting to discover our parenting styles. It was reassuring to discover that we have many similarities. We gained many helpful insights to parenting such as how to handle media, and how to approach challenges as a team when they arise. We are grateful for having this opportunity to meet with Connie before having our first born.”

Connie provided a safe and very positive environment to work on my parenting skills. I learned a lot about myself and my parenting style. I learned new strategies, came away with new tools and liked myself more as a parent in the end. I found the whole experience to be very positive.”
