My darling hubby and I are determined to become better parents. So we attended a full weekend Parenting Boot camp with a famed child psychologist. We tried everything she taught us in class with our 6-year-old at home and it didn’t work. We quickly decided we needed more help.
When we asked if we could work one -on-one with the Boot camp leader (who is a renowned and published parenting expert), she informed us that she had a 4-month wait list. We’d already waited 6 years to fix our parenting and couldn’t wait anymore. So she gave us some names of other therapists.
When I emailed the referrals, I got an answer from one of them that said this:
I work from a strengths based approach so I would love it if you would both take the Strengths Finder assessment online – it takes about 35 uninterrupted minutes, and you will get an immediate return of a report on your top 5 strengths. It costs about $10 per person, and I think you will be encouraged by this information. We’ll use it in our coaching and i’ll help you notice when you are using a strength.Let me know how this sounds. If you want to start, I can send you a link to the strengths assessment online.Best wishes,D
