My hubby and I will be married 20 years officially this week.
I’m not joking when I say we’ve got along only for around 2 years of it. 😮😮😮
I find it curious that when my marriage started to improve, so did my kids behaviour
Our marriage matters.
Our relationships as a single parent matter.
They create the emotional environment of our home which impacts our kids. 🤗🤗🤗
Join my hubby and I LIVE on FB this Wednesday 7pm MST as we talk raw and uncut about the struggles of our marriage and how we have overcome.
If you could ask us one thing about our marriage, what would it be? Leave a comment and we will answer it in our LIVE event! ❓❓❓

In order to manage my children’s anxiety, I must manage my own.
Creating an emotionally safe environment in our homes starts inside of us. 🌿🌿🌿 Struggling with this? Join me online this summer and let me show you HOW. Link in bio. .

It’s almost summer vacation... I remember dreading the day. Summer was never restful or fun for our family. Having a child with anxiety, depression, oppositional defiance disorder and ADHD made summers hard because I didn’t know how to cope.
But no more. Summers are now enjoyable because I made changes in my home that I want to teach you this summer. Whether you are in the same place I was, or just wanting tools to create better connection with your kids over the holiday, join me this summer online with my online course and private group live sessions all from the comforts of your own home.

Happy Father’s Day to this amazing man who hugs his boys every day and tells them how much he loves them,

Imagine your partner went to a seminar to find out how to better manage you,
Or fix your behaviour and get you to do the things they want you to do.
That’s how our children and teens feel when we approach them like that.
Parenting is not a skill, it’s a RELATIONSHIP.

What does that relationship look like? More on the blog. Link in bio

Coming off my 2 week tour of B.C., today I present my connection material to the Calgary Police and Social Work unit. I am super nervous but also excited to serve those who assist some of our city’s most vulnerable families.
I am grateful for such positive feedback from the seminar. The common comment has been that the seminar is relatable and extremely helpful for parents struggling with mental health concerns with their children. “I left knowing there is hope.”

Had a great time speaking our Hope The Plan today at St Michaels in Trail.
A couple weeks ago at a mental health day at a school I had a grade 8 come up to me and said, “You speakers are all the same. You say the same things that we’ve already heard a million times. We’re not listening anymore.” She wasn’t being sassy, she was expressing her frustration.
I listened hard, because she’s right.
Youth are tired of hearing. They are tired of talk, they want something genuine. They want solutions that work - and they know that if assemblies were going to solve problems they would have ages ago.
Today’s youth are looking for belonging that is felt, connection that is intentionally created by the adults in their lives, and environments that create wellness.
THAT is what we’re bringing through @nationalhopetalks and what I’m providing through my parenting seminars. It’s time for the adults to step up to the plate, hear this generation and give them what they’re really asking for.
Coming into my last parenting seminar tonight like 💥👊🏻
It’s time to write a new story for your young people

We often want to treat the anxiety with meds and counselling. As important as those are it’s important to first look at what’s underneath the anxiety. Sometimes what’s underneath anxiety are statements like:
I don’t have what it takes to face this.
I’m not enough for this.
I can’t face my friends today.
I don’t think I can pass my test.
Focusing on what’s underneath anxiety is where the transformation is. What children, or anyone needs for that matter, is for someone to name their big emotion, and connect to bring down the giant anxiety seems to be in their mind. This may mean Counselling or medication, or maybe all they need is someone to say, “I’ve got you. You’re not alone. Let’s face shame together.”

Right now this is what school looks like for my son. Exploring BC with me for two weeks.
Just over a month ago I took my son out of school because I saw his behavior spiraling downwards. He was being sent to the principals office daily and starting to believe he’s a bad kid.
Behavior always tells a story.
No one was winning - the teachers were trying, my son wanted to be understood. Instead of getting angry at the outside behavior I changed his environment and it’s made all the difference.
Sometimes that’s all our children need. Our question to answer as parents is, “What’s underneath the behavior?” and start there.
That’s where the transformation is

I was asked for some self care tips from a mom going through a crisis with her child.
I told her everything we say about self care on Instagram she could pretty much throw in the garbage.
There’s no bubble baths and a blanket with a book on a cold day.
It’s waking up at 5am so you can take care of yourself before your children wake up so you are prepared for whatever they face today.
It’s eating healthy when all you want to do is dive into a tub of ice cream from the desperation you feel.
It’s exercising even though you are exhausted.
It’s doing the hard stuff so your children can come out of their mental prison and thrive.
I don’t call it “self care”, I call it Self Ownership. *swipe right for more .

Ever since I first heard of world schooling I knew that was what I wanted for my kids.
Traveling and allowing the world to teach my kids is a family value.
Today home schooling looked like taking a boat tour around Howe Sound and Bowen Island.
Yesterday I was speaking at a traditional Chinese service. My son was managing the book table. I mentioned to him that we probably wouldn’t sell any books because of the language barrier. So my son decided to write out the description of my book in Cantonese via google translate! The people were so impressed with his Chinese writing we completely sold out of books, to which he turned to me and said. “I charge 15%”.
I love it! I was so proud of him 👍🏻
(And yes of course I paid him his 15%)
Swipe to see his Cantonese!

Your family is your feedback.
Stop comparing how you parent your children with everyone else. It only breeds shame.
If you listen to what your children are saying through their behaviour and non verbals you will soon know: - if they’re going overboard on screens
- if you haven’t been present enough
- if you need to change their diet
- if school isn’t going well
- if they are struggling
Your greatest tool is to LISTEN to the rhythm of your family and adjust. You have this intuition more than you think.
I’m excited to be bringing this seminar to
Abbotsford this Wednesday 7-9pm (ticket link in bio)
Richmond this Thursday 7-9pm
Nanaimo next Saturday 1-3pm
