I’m Crystal, The Parenting Coach. 5 years ago I found myself in a yelling match with a child of mine– one that I had labeled difficult, sensitive, and headstrong. I was at rock bottom, and ready to give up on parenting- at least on parenting him. I would come home from church feeling and believing in love, hope, and kindness- and then resort to anything but that in my relationship with him.
Our home did not feel like that peaceful, joy-filled haven that I felt like it should be… and I knew something needed to change.
Fast forward a lot of tears, learning, and several years later... and I have 2 neurodivergent kiddos that see and experience the world in a very different way than I do. I have learned how to parent through connection, not force. My children have changed and grown in leaps and bounds- mirroring the change that had to happen within me first. I find joy in my children, and our home is filled with peace, messy chaos, and love like I always dreamed.
