The Magic of Childhood

Parenting isn't something that you do. A parent is something that you become.

The birth of your baby is a momentous occasion, but a lot of emotional growth happens after that; it takes trust, compassion, and bravery to develop a respectful relationship with your child.

What does my child need? What is my child trying to learn?
What do I need? What am I trying to learn?

As a parent coach and educational consultant, I help parents learn more about their children's stages of development, activities that educate and build relationships, and how to handle challenging behavior.

I offer both group coaching and one-on-one consultations.

Find the calm. Find the magic in childhood.

“Education is a journey we take with our children.” - Aubrey Hargis

Sharing the Journey


I write about child development to help parents better understand their children's behavior, gaining insight into their developmental needs.Whether you have a baby, a toddler, or a preschooler, you are welcome to search or explore the archives for inspiration and information about children.

I am a certified and experienced Montessori teacher and educational consultant. In 2013, I created a surprisingly popular Facebook community called Montessori 101. The discussions are lively, and the wealth of knowledge about compassionate parenting from the member base is immense.
