Wholehearted Parenting...a show for parents who want to parent consciously, in the moment and from the heart. Being a parent is the most important job you’ll ever have. Parents are often confused and frustrated by their child’s behavior, yet children don’t come with instructions. Bonnie Compton, a child & adolescent therapist, parent coach, Mom, grandmother and host of Wholehearted Parenting knows the ups and downs of being a parent. Join Bonnie and her guests as they inspire and empower you to become the parent you want to be. They will offer information and resources to help guide you through your parenting journey, and as Maya Angelou so wisely says, “When we know better...we do better.” Please join Bonnie now on Wholehearted Parenting Radio.
Bonnie is often referred to as “Bonnie, Your Parent Coach”. Throughout her 25 year career as a pediatric nurse practitioner, child & adolescent therapist and parent coach, Bonnie has had the opportunity to partner with parents, as she helps them nurture their children and develop joyful, healthy relationships with them! Bonnie offers workshops, tele-classes and retreats, all designed to help empower parents, in both their role as a parent and as an individual. She is also the host of Wholehearted Parenting Radio. www.parentingpartners.info
Hope you'll join us!
I’m thrilled that you’ve joined our conversation today! Although some Dads may relate to this show, we’re really going to be talking about Moms. Specifically how critical Moms can be of themselves. I’m in the process of writing a book and am devoting a full chapter to this topic.
I believe women are more critical of themselves than men are, and mothers are particularly hard on themselves, both as women and Moms. So I decided that it was time to have this conversation, to bring it out into the open, and begin talking about specific ways then we, as Moms, can be kinder and gentler to ourselves.
I’ve invited my guest, Kathryn Thompson, to join my conversation. Kathryn is a writer who lives outside Seattle with her computer genius husband and three kids.
