Hello! I’m Carolyn Bond. I specialize in working with parents like you to reduce the stress of feeling like you could be handling things differently and more effectively in your family.

There was a time when my children were small, that I was frustrated and discouraged because, among other things, I couldn’t seem to stop my kids from fighting, or deal with one who wasn’t eating properly.

I just didn’t know what to do. The old ways of punishing and rewarding didn’t work. I was yelling at the kids, even though yelling didn’t accomplish anything except to make me feel guilty and incompetent.

I was lucky enough to trip across a way of raising kids that changed my life and theirs. This may be your lucky day too! Imagine feeling confident that you can handle any child-raising challenge that comes up!

I have a lot of ways that I can assist you. I have a blog where I’ve posted articles that I think would be helpful to you, and coaching courses where we can work one-on-one, together, to solve the child-rearing challenges that you’re facing.
