Heading home for the holidays? We’ll all do well to heed @Elizabeth Gilbert’s great advice!
“Thank you so much for your coaching last month. My wife and I have been putting your advice into practice, and it is making a difference by giving us confidence and helping our kids.
For instance, I dropped off our daughter at school without her homework last week (she’d neglected to put it in her backpack) and didn’t rush back to save the day. This week, she did it again, and after first pleading and then berating me for it being my fault, she calmed herself and said, ‘I’m really just angry at myself. I won’t do that again.’ I know 8-year-old-girls are awesome, but her self-compassion just about broke my heart, and it was your advice that gave it room to flow. I really appreciate being given that experience.”

“Christine Carter coaches families on how to create systems that promote family happiness. She helps them restructure schedules and priorities, which are exactly the things I’ve been having trouble with since I moved to the farm and started homeschooling.
We dealt with fundamental decisions like when I will do my work each day and how the family can be more predictable. And you know what? She changed my life. Because she took questions that are difficult and complicated for me and she was able to find good answers quickly.”

“If you find yourself needing to separate or divorce, but wish to do it gracefully and minimize turmoil for the children, let Christine be your guide and coach.
Her warm, compassionate and real-life advice and coaching helped us think through important issues and logistics and put us on a path to a new, respectful and happy co-parenting relationship.”
