Life In School
School has never looked quite like this yet we want to make sure our children are receiving the best education possible. The Parenting Principal has 22 years of working in schools and will help you review your child’s schedule to identify any gaps in learning needs and share suggestions for how to fill the gaps.
Over the years parents have worked with the Parenting Principal to help understand how to “win” as parents at home. The spirited child often does not want to hear “no” yet we know its’s important as parents to have discipline. The Parenting Principal will help you create strategies to parent the spirited child in your house
September comes around and many people will say how happy they are that there is a routine again in their household. As much as we enjoy summer, we often lose routine because school, sports, and general activities are missing completely or are not as common. The Parenting Principal will work with you to develop year-round routines that fit your family. These routines will stay consistent and allow you to move in and out of school time and activities as they come and go throughout the year.
The Parenting Principal coined this phrase after watching the majority of parents focus their time on parenting during the early years, ages birth – 11. Parents are around to care for their children (possibly stepping out of the workforce) and then step away a bit more as their children were in school and growing older. Those years are just as critical if not more critical for parents to be present and able to give of their time during the ages of 12-18. Parenting Principal will help you parent through social/emotional issues.
Divorce, Separation, Co-Parenting
Parenting through divorce and separation can be difficult. The Parenting Principal can offer support and ideas to help build strong co-parenting skills to help children at all ages.
