Help You Parent in Partnership


40 per session - Virtual OK

I will provide coaching and counsel on parenting in peace and respect according to the partnership paradigm. You can have harmony and peace in your family, meeting everyone's needs, and raise compassionate, respectful, confident, happy children without punishments and reward. Freedom to be who you need to be can be enjoyed by every family member without hierarchies and authority. I can counsel you in this regard whether you desire to unschool (either regular unschooling, or whole life learning/radical unschooling), or I can counsel you in how to mindfully parent in partnership with your schooled child. No one is perfect, but when there is compassion, respect, honesty, and authenticity, families thrive.

Training & Qualifications

It takes knowing the thing rejected to appreciate the thing accepted. I first raised two kids (now adults) using authoritative parenting styles. When I became pregnant with their little brother (the oldest is 18 years apart from him), I parented using attachment parenting practices, which then seamlessly transitioned into partnership principles. For nearly a decade (as of 2017), I have raised this third child in partnership as a whole life learner. I have been faced with the challenges of letting go of conditioned norms to embrace this alternative paradigm and now have the confidence and experience to help you through every aspect. I note that no human being is perfect, and partnership parenting is never perfect, either. However, it is far more connected and produces enduring relationships (and children who never need to rebel), and kids who mature into fully confident, responsible, respectful, productive, interdependent, and happy adults who do not struggle with generational dysfunction. You can also find me posting about whole life learning and living in partnership with children at my blog @ Each Simbi session is one half-hour.
