So What Will You Learn?

Game Plan Parenting utilizes an all-encompassing process of teaching and coaching you to success as a CoachParent. You will be transformed as you move through the CoachParent process and begin to create your very own family playbook!! Check out the four modules below!


How do you know when you’re getting in your own way?

Consciousness is about self-awareness – or simply put, it’s all about knowing yourself – at your best and at your worst.

In fact, it’s the cornerstone of any relationship – especially the one you have with yourself and the super significant people in your life!

This module starts you out on the right foot, helping you to create a solid foundation of awareness for all your relationships!



Take all that awareness and where do you go next? Connection!

Connecting deeply requires us to show up authentically! We learn all about how to listen deeply and relate effectively. Imagine the quality our relationships can take on when we REALLY show up!!

Bottom line - It’s all about establishing deep bonds of trust and intimacy in relationships!



There are so many elements to communication that sometimes it’s Just. So. Hard.

Have no fear GPP CoachParent! I’m here to help you create some pretty, solid, communication skills.

This module will pave the way for communication that’s simple, clear and genuine!

And the bonus prize is, the better we communicate, the better communicators our kids
become! That’s a powerful life-skill right there!


Any significant growth and awareness must be supported by systems and structures to help ensure that as a family, you are always learning and growing together.

Let’s face it, we’re always changing and before you know it, your kids will be grown and sprouting wings! Wouldn’t you love to feather your family nest for a lifetime?

This module will help you to
build your own structures that will reassure your future adult children there will always be a safe place to land.
