Trust Yourself, You Never Know What Can Happen

I am a minority.  I am part of the 13 percent of people who actually like their job.  I am lucky.  I have taken my love for children and travelled down many different paths.  I had to trust myself to make choices for me, and more recently my family.

My latest path is Joyeux Parenting, my independent consulting business designed to help families.  I have combined my knowledge of child development, my passion for supporting families, and my desire to stay up to date on new research.  I read articles that I find interesting and offer my thoughts on them.  For the past two months I have been sharing these thoughts on my Joyeux Parenting Facebook page and people actually like it!

A friend and colleague told me I need to start blogging and tweeting because social media is key.  I don’t understand twitter, yet I am going to be tweeting-ahh!  This is my first blog post.  I am going to tweet.  I am going to trust myself that this is a path worth pursuing.   The reason why is simple- I love my job, I am passionate about working with families, and I think people value my insight.

As I reflect on the topics I find most intriguing-breastfeeding, adjusting to parenthood, healthy eating, sleep, early literacy, and school success I ask you to join me.  Read along with me and share your observations.  If you have questions ask them.  If you think your friends and family would like it please share it.  And if you think I can help you specifically, call me or send me an email.  I do home visits!

My home visits are designed to answer the questions that arise as part of the daily challenges of parenting.  I offer support in the most comfortable, familiar place, your home.  I will sit and observe.  I will problem solve and create a plan for you.  I will help you look through a new lens to see what is happening and create a new path.

After years of dreaming about Joyeux Parenting I trusted myself to make it a reality.  I am so excited about this new path.  Thanks for being a part of it!

Joyeux Parenting

I am the proud mother of two beautiful children and have lived in Boston for most of my life. I have over twenty years of experience as a Child Development Specialist working with new families, pediatricians at Mass General Hospital, and Early Intervention. I have a wealth of knowledge and expertise regarding the challenges related to breastfeeding, behavior management, picky eaters, discipline, sleep, and development. I love being a wife and mother and sharing my experiences-the good, the bad, and the ugly. I am constantly learning about new evidence based information as it relates to parenting. Most importantly, I think it is crucial to recognize that we all make mistakes and learn from them. I am a firm believer that humor is essential as you navigate the world. Parenting should be full of joy and that is why I started my business Joyeux Parenting. Thank you for allowing me to share my experiences with you.
