The tools and techniques work but don't trust me, listen to one of the kids on the receiving end of Purposeful Parenting.
My experience with Laura can be best described as a big deep breath into personal acceptance. My marriage has improved, my friendships have improved and I am a better mother. Laura is passionate, intelligent and compassionate. She exudes this through her work. It is amazing to think a few hours of time spent with her will forever change your life.
Learning about my 9-year old daughter's behavioral style has helped our family communicate more effectively with her. Over that last few months, we have also seen a positive turn around in her ability to process her life events and change her interpretation of them in a way that benefits her self-esteem
Based on my own incredible experience, I was thrilled when Laura started offering her coaching to children. Our conversations always left me with that, “Man, I wish I had this intel earlier in my life” sentiment. To be able to provide my children with the gift of awareness – of themselves, others, and their interactions – is a true blessing. I am forever grateful.
Laura has coached me to develop strategies for handling difficult situations with my parents, my siblings, and in my intimate relationships. She has helped me have "tough" conversations, handle monetary disputes, structure extended-family vacations, and calmly react to high-stress family interactions. Her coaching has strengthened my relationships and changed my life!
Two years ago, Laura helped me get my son to define what he wanted from his high school experience. He was getting good grades but I knew he could do better. Our conversation caused him to re-evaluate his effort in school. As a result, his GPA went from 3.1 to 3.8 and made a huge difference in the options he had when choosing the University he will attend in the fall.
