Do you wish parenting was more fun and less work?
Let me show you how.
You love your children more than life, glory, and coffee.
You will leave no stone unturned to give them the best start in life.
You will do anything for them… well
….clean up another LEGO explosion (you would rather eat a slug).
… play a board game that makes you fantasize about picking a fork and sticking it in your eyeball (I’m looking at you Chutes and Ladders)
… do an art project that sounds innocent but ends up causing lots of mess (and stress).
… break up a sibling fight that makes you regret motherhood (just for two minutes but it leaves you guilty for hours).
By night, you worry that you don’t make enough happy memories with your children.
By day, you wonder how those adorable little kids manage to drive you crazier than you ever thought possible.
But have you heard the news?
There’s a better way.
Hi, I’m Eva. Giving birth to four children in eight years has taught me that my heart can burst with more love than I ever thought possible. I’ve also learned that my sanity can be tested in ways I had never imagined.
Being a good parent has not been what I thought it would be. It has meant being quiet even though I have something to say or talking when all I want is a bit of silence. My kids make me think. They make me doubt. They have taken my heart. They have given me an ever-expanding sense of possibility.
It came as a surprise that the only mom my kids needed was the one willing to learn and grow along with them. The only mom my kids wanted was the one having fun parenting them.
I discovered that
Good parenting doesn’t have to be complicated.
I believe that when you combine the SCIENCE of how a kids’ MIND works with the ART of POSITIVE parenting, you can CONNECT on a deeper level and create happy MEMORIES with your children, even if you don’t have the time, energy, or Ph.D. in child psychology.
You are a great mom even if you have an uncontrollable urge to shriek at the sight of Chutes and Ladders and pushing Thomas down the track triggers the symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder.
Take a deep breath.
Yes, you. I see you. I know you are already a rock-star mom. You give the best hugs. You don’t have all the answers, but you are good at improvising. And you always have your children’s best interests at heart.
You don’t have to get everything right today. You are already the one mom your kids would pick from two billion other mothers in the world. That’s because there is no one in the world better suited to mother your children than you!
My passion is to inspire you to enjoy the children you love more and to stress less even in the midst of your crazy busy life.
When you join Kid Minds community, you’ll discover how to embrace connection and learn how to bring FUN and PLAY into your everyday interactions with your children without adding more stress to your life.
