When I became a mom, I knew that I wanted to raise my child with calm and empathy, discipline him in a gentle way, and build a strong relationship that will last a lifetime.
But then, as he was going through his toddlerhood, putting all this into practice turned out to be more difficult than I imagined.
His tantrums made me feel helpless, the bedtime struggles left me exhausted, and dealing with a strong-willed child put my patience to the test every single day.
As time went by, I realized I wasn’t the mom I hoped to be.
Giving up didn’t seem like an option, so I put all my energy into learning how to make peaceful parenting work for us.
It took time and effort to discover the right strategies and make them work for my family. But once I had them in place, everything changed. I connect more with my child instead of wasting time in endless power struggles. I face parenting challenges with more confidence instead of feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. I am happier and more relaxed.
This is an ongoing journey, and I’m still learning to deal with new challenges as my kids grow up. But these strategies help me foster a peaceful home time and time again!
This is why I want to share with you everything I learned along the way. Because I know that parenting with joy, calm and connection has the power to completely change your family life!
