Is the fighting driving you insane?

Do your children complain that you love one of them more?

Are there too many mean words, bickering about who got more, and arguing over the silliest things?

about your instructor:

Mary Van Geffen

Hello! I’m Mary - the international parenting coach for overwhelmed moms of strong-willed & Spicy children. 

I help parents gain confidence to choose gentle, respectful discipline especially if they weren’t raised that way. 

My day job is coaching parents over the phone on how to be more confident and connected to their children. 

My ministry, though, is on Instagram where I post encouraging parenting tips every single day. Reading my posts will help you delight in your child and remember that you are enough.

I believe that when a mom like you realizes how hard she is on herself, she cracks the door open for some self-compassion. Then her entire family is bathed in light! 

I’m a certified Simplicity Parenting Counselor® and Professional Co-Active Coach® but my greatest achievement, is cultivating a calm, kind and firm relationship with my spirited go-getter daughter (now 16), polar-opposite introverted son (14) and un-Enneagramable hubby.
