During our sessions we will talk about the options that are there and what you would like achieve. We can talk about ways to achieve that in a gentle way.
When you end up with things that you do not know how to handle, we will discuss these so that you will find what the right path for you is to take, so that you will remain having a loving and strong relationship with your child / children.
The ways to go about this are different for every age group.
For a baby it is mostly eating, sleeping and being physically close to their parents.
For a toddler it is already much different, as toddler loves going out and about and getting into anything. 
For a child things are totally different again. They are exposed much more to the outside world and peers, which will have an influence. 
For teenagers things become even more different. In those years it is very important to keep a strong loving relationship intact. For those years things such as alcohol, smoking and drugs will likely come up at some point in time. Keeping the relationship good is so important in those years. You want to know what they are doing to keep them safe and healthy.

The way I coach is only based in gentle parenting techniques. I do not approve of spanking and punishment. So therefore that is not part of what I offer in our coaching sessions. If you are interested in taking a journey away from that type of parenting to gentle parenting techniques, I will gladly help you.

My background and experience

My background is that I have been a leader for Attachment Parenting International (API) and later Attachment Parenting Europe (APEU) since the early 2000s. I have 4 children with whom I have a very good and close relationship (born in 1994, 1997, 2003 and 2008). I have learned a lot about parenting over the years. API and APEU are very good at giving their leaders information on the latest research etc. I have made sure I kept up to date.
I personally really like the way Jean Liedloff has described parenting with the Yequana. This type of parenting worked great with my own children. But there are many ways that lead to Rome as they say.

I have also learned a lot about baby wearing and we can discuss the various types of baby carriers, how they are best used and together we can find which one would be most suitable for you to use.

Always having a strong influence on your children and always being in the know. Once you start building a good relationship when they are babies, it will last a lifetime.
