I was thinking back to when we first adopted our girls 16 years ago. Very few people in my life understood what we were going through. They just didn’t understand because they weren’t living it. As time went on, I started leading groups for other adoptive and foster parents. Wow! What a difference. To sit in a room with people who truly understood. So many times someone would say (usually with tears), “I thought I was the only one.”
There is nothing quite like the feeling of being with people who get it. Because they are on the same path. Because they live it. Because they truly understand. No judging. No questioning. Just understanding and support.
This journey of parenting that we are on can be a lonely one. Others often don’t get it so they judge. Question. Or even worse…stay away.
Thanks to the internet, we can reach out and find others who do get it. And now with Facebook, there are pages and pages of support groups of parents walking the same path. Suddenly, we are not the only one. Suddenly, we are not alone.
BUT, here’s the problem…
While there is a value to being with those who get it, often there is a piece missing. A big piece. A VITAL piece. Often there is not a way forward. Not tools or guidance to lead parents to change, to healing. Not a mentor who has not only been in the trenches, but who has made it to the other side.
I have been part of many groups. Yes, they truly understand. They get it. Often, they are a place to share stories. A place to vent. A place to be heard. A place to be encouraged. But…isn’t the goal more than that? Aren’t we really trying to achieve change? Growth? Healing?
So…when I designed my Intentional Parent Coaching Group, I’ve made sure to have all the pieces.
A group of parents who truly understand. Who get it. Who live it. Connecting on a CLOSED Facebook page.
Tools and strategies to give parents to move forward. Tools that actually work.
A mentor who has been in the trenches (trust me, I’ve been DEEP in the trenches), but who has made it to the other side.
An entire learning library of full length courses.
Quick Two Minute Tidbits – small nuggets you can take in and put into play that will make a difference.
Q & A sessions where you can pick my brain, get YOUR questions answered, and get a plan for YOUR family.
