BE YOU Parenting
How it began...
Welcome! You have landed here because you have an interest in parenting. Perhaps you are a parent or a grandparent or you know someone who is struggling with raising children. Be YOU Parenting came out of one woman's desire to empower people who would like to change the way things are currently occurring in their lives. This has been and continues to be the focus of Enhanced Living.
Mary Dravis-Parrish created Simple Strategies for Family Living as a way of bringing more change for families. It began with her desire to create a different possibility for kids, knowing through her own experience and working with children through teaching that something needed to change in order for children to thrive and become all they are here to be. She spent over 20 years working with children through teaching, tutoring and one on one . In 2012 Mary found that through her contact with kids, she had a connection with parents that allowed her to communicate with parents too. Soon she transitioned from teaching kids to coaching parents, using many of the same tools and techniques that worked for her students. The results have been life changing not only for the children but also for the parents, creating more joy and harmony in home life. She then wrote a book that parents could use a guide- Empowered Parents Empowering Kids A Guide to BE YOU Parenting.
How it works...
Most parents enter into parenting with expectations about what it means to be a parent, how they will be parent and what they expect from their kids. Other parents don't have any idea about what parenting requires and model their parenting after what they see modeled for them or by doing what the experts suggest. Sometimes this will all work out for both parent and child, but more often than not, it doesn't and the result is dissatisfied parents and conflicted kids.
I encounter many parents who find that although they love their kids deeply, the parents are not very happy being parents. Most of this is due to having to parent from inside a box that doesn't allow the parent, or the child, to be and do what brings them joy and fulfillment.
Be YOU parenting is focuses on introducing tools and techniques that break open the box and allow both the parent and the child to grow, be nurtured, supported and encouraged to be all that they would like to be, whatever that is.
Imagine what it would be like to parent your child from a place where you get to be who you would like to be, not someone else who you keep trying to make yourself into. The classes, sessions, and materials offered through Simple Strategies for Family Living takes parents on the adventure of becoming empowered to change what isn't working, getting rid of old patterns and creating the life and living that welcomes more fun, success, confidence and joy into family living. Parents discover the fun and ease of empowering their kids in today's world.
