Parent Coaching
Losing your cool more than you'd like?
Want to turn that around?
 
Often, the heat of the moment makes it virtually impossible for our brain to see and get ourselves to do the very thing that would help the most, both in the moment and for the long-term.
 
How do we break that pattern in our brain?
 
There are little things we can figure out to do to help make the hard moments of parenting better for everyone in the family.
 
But we think we should be able to figure those out on our own - to fix it on our own, fix ourselves, get our child to behave, on our own.
 
That is not the case. Trying to do it on our own, we make it even harder for ourselves, our children, our whole family - in the present and in the near and long-term future.
 
When you give yourself the gift of a little expert guidance now, you reap the sweet fruits of your collaboration in the near and long-term future.
 
Whatever your child's age, whatever your issues, Sheryl guides you to find ways to access your better mindsets, thoughts and behaviors so you go to bed feeling good about yourself, both as a parent and as a person in your own right.

We love singing about the robin bird and reciting Aileen Fisher’s poem in several of our music classes.  You and your children will enjoy this special viewing of robins and their nest.

Dean Martin - When the Red, Red Robin (Comes Bob, Bob, Bobbin' Along) (1952)

WHEN THE RED, RED ROBIN COMES BOB, BOB, BOBBIN' ALONG

(Harry Woods)

 

When the Red, Red Robin Comes Bob-Bob Bobbin' Along

When the red, red robin comes bob, bob, bobbin' along, along

There'll be no more sobbin' when he starts throbbin' his old sweet song

Wake up, wake up you sleepy head

Get up, get out of your bed

Cheer up, cheer up the sun is red

Live, love, laugh and be happy

What if I were blue, now I'm walking through, walking through the fields of flowers

Rain may glisten but still I listen for hours and hours

I'm just a kid again doing what I did again, singing a song

When the red, red robin comes bob, bob, bobbin' along

When the red, red robin comes bob, bob, bobbin'

When the red, red robin comes bob, bob, bobbin' along

There'll be no more sobbin' when he starts throbbin'

There'll be no more sobbin' when he starts a throbbin' his old sweet song

Wake up, wake up you sleepy head

Why don't you get up, get up, get out of bed, cheer up

Live, love, laugh and be happy

What if I were blue, now I'm walking through fields of flowers

Rain may glisten but still I listen for hours and hours

I'm just a kid again, doing what I did again, singing a song

When the red, red robin comes bob, bob, bobbin'

When the red, red robin comes bob, bob, bobbin' along

Along, along, along, along, along.
