What if there was a safe, supportive parenting community where shaming and criticism didn’t happen, even if you shared your most vulnerable challenges?
It IS possible, and THIS is the place.
Does this Sound Familiar?….
You’re feeling scared: There was no training on how to raise your teen and you don’t know where to turn for answers to help your teen through tough times.
You’re afraid to share your concerns: Last time you tried that, you got a strip ripped off you for being too (fill in the blank), while others shamed and criticized, wondering where you learned such terrible parenting skills.
You’re feeling alone: Sure, your friends are raising teens too, but they’re situations and challenges aren’t like yours so they just don’t understand.
You’re feeling like a bad parent: You constantly compare yourself to other parents with perfect teens and wonder what you’re doing wrong. Aren’t you just supposed to know this stuff?
You’re tired of free advice: Last time you asked your friend, sister or mom for support, they all had a better, step-by-step plan you should follow to magically turn your teen around because obviously, they know best.
You’re feeling sad: Parenting a toddler meant play dates and mom’s coffee groups to connect in. Parenting a teen feels so much harder and isn’t what you thought it would be with crying on your bathroom floor or sleepless nights worrying.
If you answered YES to any of the above, you’re in the right spot!
The truth is, parenting is hard and based on very personal values and beliefs that EVERYONE else has an opinion about (and they can’t wait to tell you, even if you didn’t ask).
If you want a respectful and encouraging community with other parents of tweens and teens where honest and courageous conversations are the norm, then keep reading….
Take a moment to imagine…
Feeling heard: Community members read your posts, offering compassion and empathy for what you’re experiencing.
Feeling valued: Community members appreciate your perspective and insights from your own challenges.
Feeling encouraged: When you reach out for support during a confidence crisis you get a community of cheerleaders reminding you of your strengths.
Feeling celebrated: When you’re in the trenches and the wins feel few and hard fought, you have a community who celebrate your baby steps and epic breakthroughs with the same, heartfelt gusto.
Feeling like you belong: You have a place to go where parents dealing with similar struggles are genuinely glad you showed up and they miss you when you’re away.
That’s WHY I created
The Empowered Parent Community…
