Parenting is our most important job, but many of us find it much more difficult than we expected. In a culture which assumes that consequences or time-outs are the answer to every problem, it is difficult to find our way when things aren’t working for our children. Rather than throwing consequences at symptoms, Pamela focuses on uncovering the roots of problem behaviour so that trouble can be understood, prevented, and attended to at its source. With a strong emphasis on restoring, building, and preserving the relationships between parents and children, Pamela walks the maze of parenting with her clients.
These appointments are for parent(s) and other care providers. It is best if your child is NOT made aware that you are seeking help to understand them. I do not work with children directly, but only through the child’s adult care-takers. It is best if your child is not made aware of the nature of your visit.
About Parenting Tune-Ups:
If you have already seen me for an introductory consultation and you want to schedule a single session from time to time when faced with a perplexing or frustrating parenting situation, or just to get a head's up regarding your child's current development, I would be pleased to see you for a tune up.
Pamela's insight into what children really need has made such a positive impact on my parenting and in my teens' lives. I walk away from every session with greater understanding, new ideas, and feeling more confident that I can be and do what is needed.
