Did you know that adding a mantra to your parenting tool box can be a game changer?  When you chant mantras your mind releases the positive energy that decreases the negative thoughts or stress. Scientific studies have found that chanting mantras, even just 5- 10 times in a row can decrease anxiety and increase calm and focus in your body.

The next time your kids are working your last nerve and you are about to lose your $%&#, try a using a mantra to stay present and help you respond instead of react to what is going on.  I guarantee that everyone will feel better when you get through that difficult moment. The key is to find a mantra that speaks to you. Here are some to get you started:

  • “This is not an emergency. I can get through this.”
  • “Connection, connection, connection.”
  • “My child is having a hard time. It's ok. I can handle this.”

It takes time, practice and sometimes even some support.

I offer individual coaching for parents who are frustrated with their kids behavior and for whom parenting is feeling bad and sometimes even out of control. I have coached over 100 people and these parents are now are seeing AMAZING results in themselves and their kids.

"Jenny has been one of the best things that has happened to me and my family. I have four kids (preschool through tween) and was feeling overwhelmed. The mom rage was real and podcasts and books felt like scratching the surface. I found Jenny and over the course of about 8 months, things are so much better. She helped me do the hard work of really seeing my kids and myself and finding strategies that worked for each of them. There were two amazing parts of what Jenny does: 1) understanding the kids, their motivations, their needs and my own stuff. 2) practical plans, tools, concrete and tangible strategies that help connect and work with each kid. Jenny is sweet, kind, warm, funny and so so wise and smart. I will be forever grateful (as will my kids)."  Find more reviews HERE.
