Parents today are often plagued with self-doubt. The dread of a meltdown in the grocery store, or the helplessness felt as a bedroom door slams in your face can result in a parenting practice that is based on fear and embarrassment. As you struggle to feel confident in your decisions, you may be flooded with uncertainty:
Am I being too tough? Am I being too soft? Does she know I love her? Will he still love me? Have I permanently damaged her?
These kinds of questions are very natural for caring big people to have. I am here to give you answers to some of these questions and to instil the confidence required in order to step up to be the parent your child needs. Using the science of child development, I will guide you through the practice of parenting from a place of empathy and connection, as well as recognizing our own triggers and parenting ourselves.
With a foundation based on the science of child development, Dr. Vanessa helps parents to become more confident and connected guides for their children.
