When my husband and I first sought Cynthia’s help, our house was a pretty chaotic place. We have three kids, and it was difficult to get them to do their chores or take accountability for their actions without threats of taking away screen time, cell phones, or play time. These threats and punishments didn’t seem to change their behaviors over time, and my frustration as a parent was building.
I had attended two of Cynthia’s seminars over the past few years and what she said made a lot of sense to me– but I wasn’t sure how to implement her strategies over a sustained period of time. My husband and I decided to invest the time and money to sign up for her individual coaching program. Working one on one with Cynthia has made a huge difference in how we parent and how our kids respond to us. We learned how to set better personal boundaries, what behaviors we do that cause our kids to tune us out, and how to engage with our kids in a more productive way.
It’s been a real blessing, especially for my teenage daughter’s and my relationship. Our daughter was having a hard time, and we weren’t able to figure out how to guide her and support her. We were getting caught up in her behavior but weren’t able to see what was behind that, and how to deal with it. Through our sessions with Cynthia, we were able to set up an effective plan and structure that helped her become more independent, develop life skills, and it even seemed to change her mood and her outlook on the world. She and I have a better relationship because of our time with Cynthia, and I feel more confident to go through the teenage years with our kids because of the tools that I have learned from her. I know that we will continue to check in with her over the years to stay on track and continue growing as parents.
