Michelle has special gifts she shares with parents and children. When you meet her, you will immediately know what I’m talking about. She exudes love and positive energy, and is a natural born teacher. For years I followed a lot of age-old traditions when it came to raising children. For example, I insisted my kids say ‘hello’ or hug someone even if they didn’t want to. I thought I was teaching them to be polite. In Michelle’s empathetic, thoughtful way, she opened my eyes to the messages I was sending to my children; one being that they shouldn’t trust their instincts. Now that my perspective has shifted, my children now feel seen and safe. They trust that I value and respect their thoughts and feelings, and therefore know they will not be forced to do anything that doesn’t feel right to them.
I’m so glad I turned to Michelle for help. I now have a deeper and more open connection with my children, which is so important as they begin to navigate the complexities of adolescence.
