Parenting is challenging in the best of circumstances. In the presence of grief it is daunting, unpredictable, and the most challenging and heartwrenching responsibility you'll ever face. It takes presence, stamina, and support that can sometimes be hard to find to be the parent your sibling by heart needs right now in their formative early years, as well as in the years ahead. You're up to the task, though it won't be easy.
See Your Way Forward After Child Loss laid the groundwork for the remaking of life, but it's only the beginning.
In Parenting for the Journey you'll gain deeper insights and proactive parenting tools for day-to-day living and interactions that other parents take for granted but you cannot. You'll build the skills you need to guide and support your child throughout the varied ages and phases of growing up a sibling by heart in a culture that doesn't understand or honor grief.
Choose to remake your life after loss on your terms, no one else's. See with your good grief mindview the future you want for your family, and claim it.
ENROLL NOW in the only parent coaching program designed to equip you with the good grief parenting foundation you need to confidently live forward after the death of your child toward a future bright with possibilities and even joy.
There are two parts to grief.The first part is loss. The second is the remaking of life.

"Good" parenting is more about being the parent your child needs you to be than doing what you or others think you should do.
Signifcant as the early childhood years are, your child doesn't need perfection.

That's what you'll accomplish through the Good Grief Parenting for the Journey Coaching program.
