Hi, I’m Elaine. You can read more about me here. I’m also the creator of the Raise Perfect Kids With Imperfect Parenting program and your partner on this mentoring journey. 😊
As a mom to 3 kids of school-going/preschooler age and having juggled parenthood with a full time job at a bank for a while, I know what it means to be constantly torn between giving your best at home and at work.
IT’S SO EXASPERATING, RIGHT?!
After a long day at work, it can be especially hard when I had to (and also why this program might just be for you):
- face frequent, random tantrums from my eldest daughter because of homework (how then can I ‘get her into shape’ so that she reaches her best potential?),
- yell and issue threats at a whim because I got so messed up in the head, toggling between getting my kids to do simple things like getting their baths, or just not do anything further like getting my son to stop irritating his younger sister (where is the much-needed peace and headspace?),
- go against what conventional parenting advice advocates, ie ‘losing it’ in front of my kids – the going berserk kind. Not good. 😫 (*mom-guilt overload* am I damaging my kids’ brains with my parenting ways?)
Now, I tame tantrums that usually go on for 30 minutes in under 3 minutes (more on this in the program), and my prize is my son telling me I’m a good mommy while we laid side by side before bedtime, chatting about random stuff.
Another sweet bonus? My eldest daughter tells me I’m “the best mom” and it means so much because she is usually reticent. 🥰 I’m happy beyond words that my ‘little tricks’ have worked and moved her in a better direction – she’s so much easier to manage!
As parents, we can always do with a little inspiration… so… GO GET BACK YOUR GROOVE! And give your young ones at home a little boost along the way too!
