COMPANY INFO

Parenting for Connection

Parenting for Connection is an individualized coaching program with certified parent coach, author, podcaster, and speaker Robbin McManne. McManne works with parents of difficult, high needs and strong-willed children, who are frustrated with their children’s behaviors, but feel powerless and ashamed, and unable to effect meaningful changes to this dynamic. McManne teaches parents new tools and strategies to put into practice in order to create new behavior patterns and emotional responses for them and their children, ultimately yielding more peaceful, cooperative, connected families. McManne believes that in any other job, the employee would receive training–yet with parenting, there is an expectation that we all know what to do from Day 1. She seeks to demystify the idea of “perfect” parenting, understanding that parents, too, are driven by stress and emotions; ultimately, she teaches them to respond with affirmation and empathy to their children, turning conflicts into conversations. The results are happier, calmer parents and caregivers, and children who are confident, resilient, and have lifelong positive relationships with their parents. McManne is especially attuned to the struggles of children existing on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum and their families; she advocates an approach of affirmation and love, and supplies parents with tools to handle these transitions as a family. McManne frequently writes about parenting topics for the Newsweek Expert Forum, as well as HuffPost, Sunlife, and CEOWorld Magazine. Her consultancy has been featured on Fox40, Canadian News Journal, Business Herald Online and numerous other news outlets.
