Today marks the last session on Parental Coaching for Sue and me, but certainly not the last time we are working together. I started working with Sue on July 26, 2019, as I was having a hard time on my parental journey. She was there for me to overcome the obstacles that I wasn`t able to see because of my burn out as a mom. She said the one thing children are looking for is the connection not just the correction. That hit my heart at that time and I started to see things in a different way. She leads me not only as an experienced mom but also as a successful businesswoman. I am on my first steps of working again after being a stay at home mom with my 2 children and that’s all thanks to Sue for empowering me. Please reach out to Sue if you need parental help, if you need someone to empower you in your journey as a parent and professional. Thank you, Sue! Love, Dorthi.
Working with Sue has been a professional, yet very personal experience for me. She is one of the most patient and compassionate, heart-centered individuals that I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I found Sue (or she found me) at a time that I was so very lost. My husband had recently passed away and I was ever-so doubting my ability to parent. Week by week, Sue took the time to listen and hear my struggles. With words spoken straight from her heart, she gently guided me to find the answers within myself. I truly feel that she empowered me as a person and as the mother of two young boys. I feel confident to say that I now empower my children too. Sue was there with me through the tears; she laughed with me through the humorous times in parenting, and was my very own cheering section through my growth. I can honestly say it has been an invaluable experience to work with Sue; a million thanks would not suffice. ❤️
Sue was such a pleasure to work with! Her strategies were thoughtful, personalized, and effective. And her calm, soothing demeanor is invaluable to an overwhelmed mom! I appreciate that her advice is from a gentle, collaborative parenting approach, and not your typical sticker chart behavioral approach. I would recommend Sue to anyone who needs some help managing the stress of motherhood and their kids’ behavioral concerns.
Sue is much more than a passionate and warm-hearted coach: in her, I see my guardian angel. That’s how she arrived in my life and, as angels do, she showed me the way I needed to go. Now I know that with her gentle and loving support I can always find my way “back home” and thus come to equilibrium. I will never forget how she helped me out of fear and anxiety by simply activating my inner guide in the most beautiful and profound way one can think of.
Her ability to heal, to empower, to encourage you to shine YOUR light is beyond words. All these qualities make Sue an extraordinary mentor that I can only recommend.
I started working with Sue DeCaro at a time when I was just beginning my spiritual exploration of my approach to parenting – specifically after reading two books by Dr. Shefali Tsabary; Conscious Parenting, and The Awakened Family. Our two children were in high school at the time, and I was uncomfortable with how I approached my relationship with them, and was unsure how to deepen my relationship with either of them. I began meeting with Sue regularly and over that time I learned much about myself, my own parents, my spouse, and my children. Developing a greater understanding of my reaction to what I perceive as my strengths and weaknesses, Sue’s suggestions have inspired me to extend myself to my children in a more selfless, productive way, which I have discovered to be very meaningful. She has also helped me develop a stronger understanding of myself. One thing that I have begun doing at her suggestion is sending encouraging text messages to each of the kids without an expectation of a response from either. At first, only my daughter responded, but in time, my son also began responding positively on his own, which was very surprising.
Over the past few years, with Sue’s help, I have developed a much more meaningful connection with both of my children – and it’s not just my opinion! Both of them have confirmed that – on separate occasions! I really look forward to my appointments with Sue – spending time focused on what’s happening in my spirit, and what I can learn from it, has brought me much happiness and peace as a mother, daughter, wife and woman in general.
Since working with Sue, our son has graduated from college, is working full-time in his desired field, and has a strong connection to me, his father, and our extended family members. Our daughter is a college sophomore, pursuing her degree of choice, with a strong personal direction teeming with self-confidence. My own relationships with my children, my living parent, my siblings, spouse and friends have been significantly and positively impacted by Susan. I am tremendously grateful to her for the coaching and her help, and highly recommend her as a teacher and coach. I have become a much more effective and self-inquisitive person with Sue’s advice, and I look forward to even more impactful realizations!
With the deepest appreciation.
Sue is an extraordinary coach. She beautifully combines the knowledge of conscious and positive parenting with practical solutions to empower parents to live their best self and build a strong relationship with their children. I highly recommend her and her work!
She (Sue) listened to our concerns – encouraged our efforts – helped us uncover our family goals and gave us solid tools to help us through our challenges….everything she said we immediately put into practice and it worked like a charm. Now when we face issues- we know how to plow through in a way that is compassionate – knowing her suggested approaches have a positive impact on our kid’s confidence and well-being. I can go on and on about how delightful this experience with Sue has been! We finally felt like we had that “parent instruction guide” that we all wished the hospital sent home with! Lol.
Thank you once again Sue- you truly have a gift and I’m so happy our paths crossed.
Conscious parenting gave our kids the voice we didn’t realize we were not giving them.
Its not like we weren’t doing our best as parents before, but now we have more tools, and the difference is unmistakable.
Conscious parenting gave us a healthy awareness of how easy it can be for parents to unknowingly pass along shame. That awareness and the newfound courage to include our kids in major decisions has been a game-changer.
You will be surprised when you find out that your house does not have to be a dictatorship. We now listen to our kids in ways we never thought we would/could. We have been blown away by their ideas, opinions and solutions.
Sue has wonderful insight and a gentle manner. She has helped us as parents to understand the needs of our children and to parent them in a way that empowers them to be the best version of their true selves.
Our home now is filled with less conflict and more mutual respect. We still love our kids to the moon, only now we love them more unconditionally. Our house is happier and more peaceful. Working with Sue has been
wonderful gift for us. 5 stars all around!!
Thank you for bringing a new level of beauty into our lives. We are forever appreciative and grateful for you.
We had never heard of a Parent Coach before we started this journey with our daughter. Finding the right resource for our daughter was hard…but finding a resource for us was not even a thought. We struggled desperately to say the right thing and do the right thing for our daughter.
We learned very quickly that not only did our daughter need some resources, but we did too! Having the chance to work with a Parent Coach was different and refreshing. Another parent at our daughter’s new school highly recommended Sue as an exceptional resource. We are so glad that we were introduced to her. Sue has truly been a life line for us. Sue has been where we have been, and offers ways a parent can frame a situation to move forward in a positive way. We have learned “what we focus on grows” and have trained ourselves to see the good things to love and nurture in each of our children. Anyone with a struggling child, needing to learn how to manage their own expectations to help a child move in a positive direction, is looking in the right place.
Sue has been a wonderful resource and please know she is able to bring a light of clarity in troubled times.
