What we're about at Raising Our Resilience...

  • Proven strategies and tools, so you can rest into them and end the search for the 'right way' to handle parenting challenges 
  • Getting you clear about what to do and say, so you don’t spin out in tough parenting moments
  • Helping you learn how to set limits, create routines, and handle big emotions in a deeper, long-lasting way that builds stronger relationships 
  • Becoming a true leader in those tough moments… once you’re consistent, kids will turn to you for your leadership and get on board with you rather than rebelling and pushing back
  • Keeping you out of overwhelm and isolation, the two things that can take you out of the self-improvement game, by surrounding you a like-minded community of coaches and peers
