Real-Time Parenting originated from my collaboration with two amazing parent coaches, Amy Armstrong and Mary Funari. As parents and professionals, we have supported and inspiried each other. We shared a similar mission: to help parents discover what matters most and choose action steps to make positive changes. We are thrilled to offer Real-Time Parenting: Choose Your Actions Steps for the Present Moment. We hope you will gain renewed confidence for parenting and experience more joy in the everyday moments.
Real-Time Parenting invites you to take inventory of your values, personality, and experiences to craft a unique vision. We include a collection of parenting skills that become your personal toolkit. We share stories to illuminate common struggles and best practices. There are activities for you to test out approaches and experiment with skills and concepts. Our book guides you to make informed parenting decisions with an emphasis on the connection between you and your child.
Real-Time Parenting helps you choose action steps for the present moment and make positive, lasting changes in your family. Stay tuned for more information about our book and online classes!
