Life can be confusing and draining for parents. You know what to do, but feel unable to follow through. It doesn't have to be this way, and you don't have to do it alone.
As coach, parent and middle school teacher, I understand and have lived the concerns of parents as their children grow up, the rules of the game change, and the role of parent changes.
My work is dedicated to helping parents create a principle-centered life and develop crucial listening and communication skills. These are essential elements in all relationships. They are also critical to be the trusted adult in our child's life. These are the qualities which, if we model them for our children, will help them become compassionate, independent, confident, loving adults.
My practice is based on "The Ten Priorities of Effective Parenting" (Hyde School), and the communication skills program, "How to Talk So Teens Will Listen" (Faber/Mazlish). These programs are the blueprint for excellence in parenting and relationships in general (family, friends, business... and your relationship with yourself).
You will learn powerful principles and skills to take the confusion out of decision-making, improve listening and communication , and bring out the goodness and potential in both you and your teen. You will also work on your own life balance and goals, or the transition into the empty nest years. Discover the person you are meant to be after the children move on.

I learned to listen to my child instead of yelling before I hear him out. I also learned how to handle a negative situation and that it is okay if he makes mistakes. Hopefully he will learn from them. I also have a tendency to nurture his every need and you taught me to sit back somewhat and let him figure out his own obstacles in life. I would highly recommend coaching or taking a course with Fern, she is wonderful!Darlene B., NJ
Thank you, Fern, for the training received (Parenting from Principles). You're right - it's never too late to receive tips and training that apply in all relationships. If we only knew then what we know now!Ginny B, NJ
I was looking for a way to bring character and integrity back into my parenting after long years of divorce struggles, and the bitterness and strife those too often bring, when I met Fern Weis. Her insights as a parent, her commitment to the priorities of the "Biggest Job" program, her skills as a coach - listening, empowering questions, refocusing, goal-setting, acknowledging, validating, cheerleading - combined to build a sturdy foundation on which I could explore the most difficult feelings and experiences a parent can have, and rebuild around principles and integrity just as I had hoped. When I became a parent, there was almost no support - no manual, no "For Dummies," and I lived far from my relatives. I wish "The Biggest Job We'll Ever Have" had been around then, but it's never too late! I'm so glad I found it now, and found Fern. Buy the book. And if you need to build a better parenting foundation, for goodness' sake, call Fern! Thank you Fern, the Hyde School Family and "The Biggest Job We'll Ever Have."Barbara D, NJ
