Course Description

Our work begins by setting goals. How do you want the relationship with your son or daughter to be different, better? Then, in our trusted small group setting, we will walk step-by-step through a process of looking at how the limiting beliefs we all have, affect parenting. After that, we learn about creating boundaries, discipline vs. natural consequences, how the adolescent brain functions, and a few more areas that will transform your home and family life to the one you desire with relationships that are functional, inspire open communication and is above all else, PEACEFUL.

Kim Muench

Welcome! As a Jai Institute for Parenting Certified Parent Coach, Founder of Real Life Parent Guide, and mother to five unique individuals for three decades, I have developed and spent many years practicing parenting in a way that truly allows adolescents to shine! The key to transforming your relationship with your teen into a peaceful, functional experience you both enjoy is to work on yourself. This self-care practice, along with shifting your approach to parenting with rather than over your teenager will bring you the kind of relationship you've always wanted with your son or daughter. In addition to guiding mothers of adolescents into healthier, happier, more functional relationships, I am an avid writer on topics related to raising adolescents in today's often confusing culture. My writing has been published on websites such as A Fine Parent, The Conscious Parent Blog, 10 to 20 Parenting, and The Huffington Post.
