Expert Q&A: Transformational Parenting (Non-members $10)

Paula has developed a framework of parenting that is based on the principles of transformational leadership which will empower parents to become the source of change for themselves and their child.

Parents don’t have to wait around for their child to change, or their partner to be more supportive as they learn the powerful transformational leadership principles which will help parents become the influential parent-leaders that they have always wanted to be.

It is never too late to make your vision become a reality! You can begin that journey RIGHT NOW by attending this presentation in which you will discover:

5 Pillars of Transformational Parenting:

Vision – How to create a powerful vision and live your vision like your life depends on it

Responsibility – How to move from shame, blame, guilt, anger frustration and insecurity into empowerment

Committed Action – Learn how to operate like a pro so you can show up for your vision, your child, yourself and your life 100% as your radiant, authentic and free self

Abundance – Learn how your past history and limiting beliefs hold you back inside a prison of fear, worry and self-doubt instead living a rich life full of potential

Generosity – Learn to let go of the need to be right, and give yourself, and your love generously to your child without needing anything in return

Join us for this Expert Q&A led by Paula Kettula, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been working with children and families for over 20 years.

In her role as a psychotherapist and a transformational parent coach, Paula works closely with parents to help them connect with the heart and soul of their child by using a love-centered approach infused with the power of the latest research findings from developmental neuroscience and trauma research.

Paula has developed a unique approach to parenting based on a powerful transformational leadership framework which she is using to empower parents to become conscious, confident, and inspiring parents so they can create an authentic, connected, and loving relationship with their children.
