Parenting Foundations was started in May, 2013. What is Parenting Foundations?
The idea for this business started 14 years ago while sitting on my friend’s couch. We were talking about the fact I loved being able to help the parents I was working with.
I was working with families who had children with behavior and emotional issues. I was able to teach parent’s ways to help their child cope with the daily life stressors. My friend’s husband told me that I should start putting up signs saying I could help people get their kids sleeping. At the time, I laughed it off. I felt that I could not help parents if I was not a parent myself.
Fast-forward a few years. In 2010, I was welcomed into my ready-made family. Not only did I marry my sweetheart, I became the extra caring adult (aka step mother) to my two boys who were 11 and 15. The business idea from years ago kept popping in my head. I started to believe I had the skills.
In the 11 years that had passed I had built up my parenting toolbox! I was and Early Childhood Educator, Child Care Counselor, Community Support Counselor, Mental Health Therapy Assistant and a Child and Family Services Caseworker.
In 2011, we welcomed our beautiful little boy into the world and I was hooked! I had well over 18 years of experience working with children and families and Bachelor of Child Studies. Did all the experience help me as a parent? I believe it did help me understand child development but did not prepare me for the 24-hour position I now had.
I realized then that I no longer had any excuse for not starting the business I spoke about 12 years before.
Voila… Parenting Foundations was born!
