Hi there, and Welcome! I bet you are wondering:
What is Intentional Parenting and what’s in it for me?
Well, have a look at the chart below. If your life matches with the column on the left, then your life is pretty great, and you probably don’t need me at all! I am really happy for you and I will be cheering you on from the sidelines! AND, I’d love to hear from you because I would love to share your success and your secret sauce with others.
On the flipside, and the more normal, common, run-of-the-mill experience, if your experience lines up better with the column on the right, I have some great help for you!
Have a look:

So, how does IP work?
I have worked in a doctors office where there are 1000s of files, and every now and again, I couldn’t find one. I’d look and look and look. Eventually, I’d ask for help. Often, the person would have a brief look and then say, “It’s right here.”
Really? Sigh! What happened?
They had a fresh perspective, and they didn’t’ keep looking in the same old places.
Here’s another example: Take a look at this image. What do you see? An old woman? A young woman?
Parenting can be just like that image, or losing a file. We can be so sure about not having a solution, and then a fresh perspective comes along, an outsider’s view that makes all the difference in the world!
That is how Intentional Parenting can make a big difference in your life, with a fresh and experience perspective! Give us a try!
