Hi! I’m Karen.
We’re in the middle of a global pandemic and, speaking as a parent coach and child development expert, I see parents struggling.
If you’re one of them, here’s the biggest piece of advice I can offer:

Give yourself permission to take a break.

(Just below is the first module in my complete course, “How to keep going,” which really breaks down this concept. Scroll on down or keep reading to check it out : )

So many of us feel that, with everything going on and all that is required of us – with work, with family, with the pandemic – we cannot stop.

Even for just a minute.

We even feel guilty for wishing we could stop.
(I know I have felt that way, even more so during the pandemic. If that’s where you are, huge hugs to you.)

What makes us feel better: Taking a break.

I know that’s what has worked for me. When I am better rested and have had some time to myself (even just a few minutes) everything else gets better.

I see it working for the parents that I work closely with, too!

So, that’s the best piece of advice I can offer.

Whatever it takes, grab yourself a break. Even if it means locking yourself in the bathroom or stepping outside the front door, just by yourself.

Even if it’s just for a few minutes, even just a few times a week.

If that is a difficult concept wrap your mind around, just below is Module 1 of my course on “How to keep going…”

I’m sharing it with you, completely free and no strings attached!

We dive into getting past these difficulties, getting the rest we need, feeling confident in saying “I need a break.”

I hope it’s helpful!
