In this upbeat, informational presentation, parents will be pleasantly surprised by the reasons to “zip-it” and will find comfort and confidence in their ability to parent their children, all while preparing them for the world outside their home. Vicki provides insight as to why all the over parenting, nagging, hovering, and helicopter parenting is not working out for you or your child and identifies five of the biggest parenting obstacles and how you can “clear away the clutter” and create clarity that will guide your family for years.

We know parents play a huge role in the dynamics of the family and you will learn how to:
  • Invest in the relationship with your children in ways that foster independence and self-reliance.
  • Support the development of self-discipline, self-control and discernment without punishment or rewards.
  • Remain emotionally available for your kids as they are faced with more difficult daily challenges increasing their sense of competency and influencing their self-image in healthy ways.
  • Provide the opportunity for your children to make informed decisions, so they are able to keep themselves healthy and safe along their journey to independence.
  • Keep your eye on the long-term responsibility of parenting and support the development of competencies that guide children as they mature.
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all magic solution that will lead you into bliss but there is a one-sized-feels-awesome for-all outcome: a happy, stable family with children who can think for themselves and parents who can turn the lights out at the end of the day and say, I feel good about where we’re headed.
