"What if I knew how to handle all the challenges? You know, like that mom wearing a flower crown who calmly dances through problems with her children?
"My life would be great if I could just understand how to apply those gentle parenting ideals to the hard moments."
"OMG, I could be the mother I want to be and actually enjoy my kids and my life. We would be thriving instead of just surviving!"
Whether you are mothering a baby, toddler, child, or teen, the struggle is real. For those of us committed to walking a gentle parenting path that respects our children's natural ways of being and honors their needs, we can feel even more alone.
I know I did when all my colleagues in family therapy were prescribing control-based time-outs and behavior charts to parents while I was inviting them to sit with their children, validate their feelings, and ask for their ideas. But I don't mind the side eye anymore because what all those colleagues and families witnessed is that this approach works, especially when the goal is to raise heart-full and competent people.
“I just yelled at my kids—another day failing at motherhood."
"I won't hit, shame, or punish my child. But then what do I do?"
"How do gentle parents get through tantrums in Costco without everyone thinking they're raising hellions?"
"I'm stuck. What I'm doing isn't working and I just can't see a way through this issue."

"I can’t recommend Rachel (Sage Parenting) enough! Rachel is a beacon of guidance to connected, respectful, authentic relationships in our parenting journey. I love her podcast and she’s incredible to work directly with as a coach. She articulates in a honest and approachable way and is an abundance of knowledge. I often ask myself “what would Rachel do” to channel her inner wisdom. Thank you Rachel for all that you bring the world, we need more like you, and thanks to you we can all follow the path you lead and change the world in the way we raise the future generations."
“Rachel took me under her wing as a scared, nervous single momma – struggling with sleep, consistency and quite frankly trying to not lose my sh#! with a full time job and a precious and precarious growing toddler. With loving kindness, Rachel gently guided my son and I to a more peaceful and calm relationship. I jokingly asked how much coaching would be for the rest of the year, knowing that each and every single email exchange holds wisdom beyond anything I could have learned on my own. Rachel is a fierce and honest momma warrior you simply need in your corner. No matter the issue or growth you and your family need to step into – Rachel will hold your hand the entire way and none of you will ever want to let go. Thank you for changing my relationship with my son and how I see, know and love him on a minute to minute basis. And thank you for mirroring the love I need to sometimes send my way as well. I look forward to working with you again in the future as my son and I run together into this wonderful world of discovery.”
