I am Margaret Webb and I help parents who are "Parenting the Child They Didn't Expect While They Were Expecting." These parents are just like me...on a Hero's Journey in Parenting.
What is a Hero's Journey in Parenting? I see this as experiencing an unexpected in parenting - a special need, a learning difference, a child who is on their own developmental timeline, or one who just marches to the beat of their own drum - that sends the parent into an unrecognizable reality when compared to what they know and see around them. This is the start of an adventure that while not chosen, has the potential to teach you a lot about yourself, what you are capable of, and help you to parent the child you didn't expect while you were expecting. Is this you? Are you ready?
If so, this is where I come in. I help those who are on this journey reconnect with themselves in order to feel...
Empowered to be a leader in their life, making choices that are best for them and their children, knowing how to handle those who question and judge and setting boundaries when necessary.
Grounded when things and thoughts get chaotic.
Confident that when they notice tension in their life, that they can do something about it.
Intentional about what they are doing and why they are doing it.
Equipped with tools, questions and strategies that they can use anytime, anywhere to support them and their children.
Content and able to get a different perspective when they feel stuck and without hope.
Clear about what is important to them and how to create a life that supports it.
It is my passion to help others find ease and joy while on this parenting journey because life is too short to feel isolated, judged, uncertain and exhausted!
You are NOT alone and I would be honored to be your guide.
Why trust me? I have personal experience as mom to my 16 year old son who is on the autism spectrum, has ADHD, anxiety and had apraxia of speech. I bring professional experience as an elementary school teacher along with the tools, questions and strategies I've gathered, and personally use every day, as a Martha Beck Master Certified Life Coach and Parenting Coach/Educator to help parents shift from feeling inadequate and in a non-stop game of "Whack-A-Mole" to feeling those powerful things mentioned above.

Do you want to feel confident in your parenting and know what to do when others judge or when s#!t hits the fan with your child? Do things feel completely out of your control? Does having more ease and joy in your life sound like it is only possible for other people? Me too!! I've been there!
I hit rock bottom when my son was 3 years old and parenting was nothing like I expected due to him being on his own developmental timeline. Fortunately, coaching tools, strategies and questions came into my life that helped me to be happy, empowered, intentional and grounded as a mom, wife and person...and none of this had anything to do with my son not being autistic!I now share what has worked for me (and many others!!) with you so you can feel the same way!
