In this episode we hear from Mary Van Geffen about parenting strong-willed kids, therapeutic resonance and what it means to embrace that gift in us as we mother.
Mary Van Geffen is an international parenting coach for overwhelmed moms of strong-willed & spicy children.
Based in Southern California, Mary helps moms (over the phone or on FaceTime to) gain confidence to choose gentle, respectful parenting especially if they weren’t raised that way.
She has a ministry on Instagram where she posts an inspiring parenting tip every single day. Just reading her social media will help you delight in your child and remember that you are enough. Mary believes that when a mom realizes how hard she is on herself and cracks the door open for some self-compassion, her entire family is bathed in light!
Mary is a certified Simplicity Parenting Counselor® and Professional Co-Active Coach®. Her greatest achievement, however, is cultivating a calm, kind and firm relationship with her spirited go-getter daughter (turning 17 next week), polar-opposite introverted son (14) and un-Enneagramable hubby.
