Exciting news! I wrote, copyrighted and published a parenting guide, Now What? Mindful Checklists for Life's Hard Parenting Moments, and it is available.
This is my latest passion project that I’ve been working on for almost a year.
What is Now What?
What Do You Get?
Who is this for?
Parents, grandparents, caregivers, teachers of kids ages 1-7, but the ideal age is parents with kids ages 1-4 years old.
But I strongly recommend parents with babies ages birth to 1 to get it in order to get a head start.
What is the Price?
Why Did I Create This?
I remember when I first had Henry, and it was sometimes hard to remember what to do when emotions were high.
So I wrote down the strategies that worked and the next time I had a similar moment, I would run down the list until I found what worked.
That’s what I want for you!
1. I'm pretty busy. Will I have time to do this course?
Of course! I've designed this handbook for busy parents in mind because I'm a busy mom myself. You can take each module at a time. The strategies are short. The videos are short. Use the strategy for a few days. If it works, write it down. Bam you're on your way to success. Also remember these strategies will actually save you time.
2. What if not all the strategies work?
They won't! And that's not because you're doing anything wrong. All kids are different. All moms are different. All families are different. Not every strategy will work 100% of the time. THE PURPOSE IS TO MAKE A CHECKLIST OF WHAT WORKS FOR YOU BY CHOOSING FROM OVER THE 70 STRATEGIES I OFFER. Some of the strategies in the modules I have used and now I don't. Some of the strategies I have used, stopped using, and now use again. Some of the strategies I have used consistently. Try them out, give them a chance, and if they don't work, don't add them to your list. Maybe you can revisit them later. Maybe you won't.
3. Okay, but how much time will I have to actually spend doing the course?
The course is self-paced, with about 30 minutes worth of content per module So, I’d say, schedule about 3-4 max. A small price to pay to build save you time in the long run and to build confident, calm families.
4. What ages is this for?
Ages 1-7. BUT I highly recommend buying even if you have a kid under 1, so you can be prepared. And hey, some of these strategies even work for tweens and teens.
5. Why should I be a member of the Insider's Scoop?
You get weekly emails that explore aspects of parenting. You can ask questions. You'll be part of a small community and won't get lost in the shuffle.
Here are what other parents and teachers are saying about Now What? Parenting Guide:
"Module 4- the Sleep module I learned the most from- I feel the strategies in this module were on point and give guidance on what the parent needs to do to set up a successful sleep environment. It did not focus on what the child needs to do. Because we can't control a child's behavior, only our own. so the focus needs to be on what WE can do rather than on how we can control others."
"I really learned a lot from the module discussing green light choice. As a mom and a teacher these strategies would be used several times throughout the day!"
" From toddlers to lower elementary students would gain a lot from this guide."
"Early childhood centers and elementary teachers would benefit from this guide."
"As an early childhood provider I found this course informative and useful. I would recommend this course to my colleagues as well as fellow parents."
"The guide was so easy to follow."
"I actually enjoyed all of the modules and gained valuable information."
"The Checklist format was useful, and focusing on the idea that some will work for your child and some won't, so choose those you want to use, and try them for two weeks. Also the idea of having it written down somewhere to help in the moment they are needed is great."
