And WELCOME to The Work on PARENTING! One of the most profound and meaningful roles we’ll ever have in our lives.
Does the thought of being a fully happy, peaceful, wise, clear parent feel like a nearly impossible scenario? Do you find you feel troubling emotions when it comes to your kid(s)?
Many beliefs running in our minds appear to affect our approach to parenting, whether conscious or hidden triggers.

Parenting can be one of the most stressful experiences of life….when you’re believing the thoughts you learned growing up, the thoughts you have about your kids and your influence on them (if you’re worried about it) or your thoughts about what is necessary for your kids to succeed in the world.
Listen here to a radio interview I did with the wonderful Donna Markussen of Your Inspired Truth by clicking here:
Would you like to let go of some of your painful thoughts, and relax and enjoy your role as a parent?
A remarkably quick way to relief, patience, calm and joy in parenting is to identify your thoughts, question them (the painful ones). As we walk through this work, we find “turnarounds” to our thinking. This practice gives us awareness and a new way to be with ourselves, and therefore with our children.
The Happy Parent Teleclass gathers moms or dads together on teleconference. We’re all guided gently into identifying what we believe that creates suffering about our parenting.
In this powerful work, we discover how we feel about our powerlessness, our capacity to say no or yes honestly and genuinely, our feelings of loss or emptiness in our own childhood, and our ideas about love and what it’s supposed to look like. We even get to spend two sessions on the parenting we ourselves encountered from those who parented us.
Doing The Work is an amazing doorway into the inner world, and the way we think about life overall.
Here’s the class topics, for 8 sessions:
Class 1: Judge Your Child – Get those embarrassing thoughts out on paper…it’s not really about your kid, and you can admit them here
Class 2: When They Say No, When I Say No, and Marshmallow Moments – One of the most powerful areas of inquiry…Saying No. How it feels, why it hurts or feels scary, when you want to do it but don’t, what you think it really means.
Class 3: Judge Your Mother’s Parenting – Take a look at how your own mother parented you, what you thought was missing, what you adopted, what you’d rather not believe anymore…the qualities you notice here, taken to inquiry, may turn the way you are around
Class 4: Judge Your Father’s Parenting – Look at your father’s approach to parenting, break it down, see how it affects your choices today and take this to inquiry…and find a new way
Class 5: When My child suffers emotionally or physically – What happens when they get hurt? End your agony here, through inquiry, so you can be efficient and powerful when they’re going through pain
Class 6: Helicopter Moments — I Need To Hover, Follow, Rescue – When you’re wanting to know anything and everything about their lives, are you operating from fear?
Class 7: Dictator Moments – This Must Be Stopped, Forced, Disciplined – When you feel like overpowering, when rage arises, when you want to punish…what’s going on?
Class 8: The Most Terrible Awful Thing That Could Happen – When you’re terrified of visions of what can happen with your kids, how can you learn to relax instead of freak out? Here’s how.
This work brings revelation and awareness, and in turn the awareness offers us new possibilities from the inside out. When we’re thinking clearly, calmly and realistically….our communication becomes clear, calm and realistic.
When we communicate in new ways and feel good inside, we reflect happiness outwardly. Those around us, including our children, naturally become lighter, more at ease, and willing to stay connected.
Amazing changes have come out of this internal work with our minds. To have a transformation in our thinking truly affects our feelings, actions, and our experience with others–our kids, our families, our whole world really.
Join me for an exciting inner adventure in discovering greater love and sanity by really seeing what thoughts we’re thinking that cause unhappiness inside ourselves….and questioning them.
When we question the foundational beliefs we’re standing on that cause suffering, we find it possible to be free of despair, worry, irritation and frustration with ourselves, with our kids. We become the role model we really want to be: a clear, loving even humor-filled parent who has it together!
