"Parenting the Child You Didn't Expect While You Were Expecting" is for those who are new to this tele-course material.
Hello!! 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 am a parenting coach, a master certified life coach, former teacher, and mom to my 16 year old son who is on the autism spectrum. I help parents on this journey 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.

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 three years old and it became apparent that he was on his own developmental timeline. I remained in that funky place for the next four years because I had no idea what to do other than put all of my energy into trying to support him. While I still do all I can to support him, I needed support...BIG TIME!
I finally found that support nine years ago through life coaching tools, strategies and questions that helped me to process the emotions I had shoved down so that I could truly be happy, empowered, intentional and grounded as a mom, wife and person. None of this had anything to do with my son not being autistic and I now share what has worked for me (and many others!!) with you so you can feel the same way!
