Hello! If you or anyone you know would like to donate to the cause, we are holding our first annual Christmas Drive and are trying to gift 100 children two gifts for Christmas. This drive is geared towards single parents in the DFW Area so we are also collecting monetary donations as well as supplies for the parents. Any household items, paper goods, sanitizers and xleanine supplies are welcome.

Unfortunately, half of parenting relationships end in separation or divorce. Because of this, we must learn to heal ourselves in order to move on to be Healthy Co-Parents. Check out my free Healing Worksheet for ways in which we can all begin to heal.
🎗If you or someone you know is in an emergency, call The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255) or call 911 immediately.
Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, suicide is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues.
September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month — a time to raise awareness on this stigmatized, and often taboo, topic. In addition to shifting public perception, we use this month to spread hope and vital information to people affected by suicide. Our goal is ensuring that individuals, friends and families have access to the resources they need to discuss suicide prevention and to seek help.
If you or someone you know is in an emergency, call 911 immediately.
If you are in crisis or are experiencing difficult or suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273 TALK (8255)
If you’re uncomfortable talking on the phone, you can also text NAMI to 741-741 to be connected to a free, trained crisis counselor on the Crisis Text Line.
During Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, we will provide images and graphics you can use on your website and social media accounts. Use #Suicide Prevention or #Together4MH
While suicide prevention is important to address year-round, Suicide Prevention Awareness Month provides a dedicated time to come together with collective passion and strength around a difficult topic. The truth is, we can all benefit from honest conversations about mental health conditions and suicide, because just one conversation can change a life.
My Healthy Co-Parenting online course is self-paced over a 30-day period. The online course creates an opportunity for parents and family members that participate in co-parenting to shift their attention from the personal aspects of divorce to the needs of the children. This Healthy Co-Parenting Class focuses on the enhancement of the parent's ability to function within their families, the relationship between the separate households, and how to improve the parental relationship to provide a nurturing home environment. The Healthy Co-Parenting Class is suited for all parents, grandparents, bonus-parents, aunts, uncles, or others that directly or indirectly influence decisions about children.
When families transition into co-parenting, parents need to be equipped with tools to help their children adjust to the changes in their lives. Healthy Co-Parenting helps improve the quality of the parental relationship by reducing conflict while the parents work together to help their child adapt through effective co-parenting.

Remember, any man or woman that is truly interested in making you happy will be interested in making your children happy as well. This comes in the form of respecting your boundaries and having boundaries of their own as well.
It is my opinion that you are a co-parent unless your other parent is deceased or completely uninvolved. You can be a married co-parent or a single co-parent. Others feel that if they are unmarried, they are a single parent. I am unmarried, but I am still a co-parent to my oldest two daughters while I am a single parent to my youngest two children. As a single parent, I don’t get every second weekend “off” and I can’t get the other parent be the disciplinarian when I’m fed up, it’s just me.
Stress can kill just as quick as any disease and affects you in more ways than you may know. For some people, the feeling passes while others become overwhelmed and unable to cope. In the short term, stress can leave us anxious, tearful and struggling to sleep. But over time, continuous stress can trigger heart attacks, strokes, and even suicidal thoughts.
In short, stress can kill you! Even with all the madness and injustice going on in the world today, take time to pray, meditate or exercise to keep stress levels down and take care of your body as well as your mind. Talk to a therapist or life coach today.
In order to co-parent successfully, both parties must separate their personal relationship with the ex-partner from the co-parenting relationship. Through your co-parenting relationship, your children should know that they are more important than the conflict that ended your marriage or partnership. The newly formed relationship is entirely in regard to the well-being of your children. The first step to becoming a responsible co-parent is to always put your children’s needs ahead of your emotions.
The same way communication was key in your intimate relationship, it is key to your new relationship as a co-parent. Although the way you all relate is different, the concept is the same. Consistent, purposeful and POSITIVE communication with your ex is essential to the growth of your children. I encourage some form of therapy or coaching regardless of how and why the relationship ended !
Every healthy relationship begins with Self-Love! In order to be a Healthy Co-Parent we must heal our past hurts. As a Life Coach, I am able to help you with the tools that can begin that process. Take time to Pray, meditate, listen to music, journal or read positive affirmations daily. These things will help you to heal and keep you centered as you go through the trials that come with life. Always know that you are loved, you matter, and you are never in this walk alone!
