Frequently Asked Questions

  • "I am really interested but I am already stretched way too thin. I don't think I would have the time needed to make it worthwhile for me right now. "

    Boy, do I get that! And I won't say this won't take some time because in order to get the maximum value out you will need to put some time in. ************************************* If you look at one of the parenting courses each month, you might spend an hour or so scanning it. Then it is up to you how much you want to tackle and start implementing. ************************************* You will want to spend a bit of time in the Community so that you can connect, share and support others, as they support you. But really, most of us find time to do that somehow on social media fairly regularly. ************************************* And you might find you want to take the time to connect to the live Q&As, sometimes to listen in to other's lives, sometimes to ask your own burning questions. That is usually less than an hour. ************************************* So, total, it could be as little as two or three hours a month. If you could add up the hours in a month that you spend in conflict with your son, hours you are desperately hoping Dr. Google can help you with some of your problems, hours lost because of communication conflicts, behaviour misunderstandings, ineffective discipline and punishments, and on and on - you get the gist. Our lives are busy but when being in this membership will actually give you more time, more peace, and more joy in being the parent of a son. And who couldn't use a bit of that.

  • "I am already parenting intentionally. I have read all the leading parenting books and have joined a few parenting groups. I don't think this would be for me."

    There is some reason you are still searching, or you wouldn't be reading this. I really do understand, because that was me. The problem is that there is something missing between the learning and the implementing. ************************************* This membership gives you the three necessary ingredients to make that bridge so that you are able to implement and parent in a new way: 1.The right information; 2. A supportive community; AND very importantly, 3. Support when you get stuck or derailed! *************************************And you will get stuck. You will be derailed. It happens to us all! That is usually when we either go back to our old habits or dig deep and try and figure out what went wrong and correct it. Being in this group will make it different this time!

  • "I really am not sure this is the right time to be spending more money."

    I could answer this is a variety of ways. I could point out that you are more than worth the investment. We often don't hesitate to spend money on our child, but really, your son will be the biggest benefactor of your joining The Sonhood Society. This investment will have immediate results but also will be paving the way for better years in the future as well. Truly, this is an investment! *************************************The more direct response would be to remind you that you are investing in you, your son, and your family for LESS than $1.00 a day. Kind of seems like a no-brainer.

  • "This all makes sense to me, but I am still on the fence. How can I decide?"

    When I feel like this, I follow a bit of a process. I make lists. Really - I get a piece of paper and divide it in half, Pros & Cons. I'd think about: What are the benefits from joining? Why do I want to join - for the knowledge, the community, the support? I'd recognize the 'facts' and then delve into how I 'feel'. Do I like the idea of being part of a group where I feel like I am with 'my people'? Where I know I always have support both from a community of like minded parents of boys as well as an experienced, educated professional? ************************************* Then I would think about what's holding me back from deciding? Am I worried that, like other things I may have tried in the past, this might not work either? Am I worried that I might not feel accepted by the others? ************************************* Then I would visualize what life in my family could look like three months down the road. Would life be smoother? Would I be feeling more confident about raising my son? Would I start to see my boy happier, more content? And I would decide it was worth giving it a try - that I was worth it, and so was my son.

  • If you go through this process, and still have some questions just send them to me at kathy@sonhoodcoaching.com and I will reply right away. You need to feel this is the right place for you in order for it to be that.
