Want More From Your Family Life?

Is your family life not meeting as many needs as you would like?
Do you want more fulfillment and balance,
for yourself, your partner, and/or your children?
Do you long for more cooperation and peaceful communication,
in your household, your marriage, your divorce, your life?
Do you wish you had a deeper connection,
with other family members?
Do you want to be more confident that your kids’ needs are being met?

If any of these things are true, then this website is for you!

My family has created a family life that meets our needs for deep connection and satisfaction. The suggestions I describe here are informed by that experience, as well as by my studies and training. You can read all about that experience and training at my About Me page.

But your family doesn’t need to aspire to have a family life like ours to get something out of this website. To the contrary!

You might like allthe ideas discussed here. Or, you might just want to integrate part of one suggestion. Or, perhaps you’ll look the site over and decide that none of the family life possibilities discussed here are for you.

This website comes with no judgment whatsoever about “right” or “wrong” family life choices. Although I do believe some strategies are more likely than others to lead to nourishment, connection, and fulfillment for members of most families, I don’t believe my suggestions are the last word, or that alternative strategies are “bad.”

Moreover, I realize that each family has a unique set of issues and resources, such that, even to the extent a family desires to follow some of my suggestions, it may find doing so unrealistic.

Therefore, throughout this website, I offer you various possibilities you may wish to consider and strive for, to one extent or another, as you are both interested and able.

So, I invite you to peruse this site . . .

. . . Whether you know you want to make major changes in your family life, or you just want to consider tinkering with a few things;

. . . Whether you’re divorced, or married;

. . . Whether you’re a brand new parent, or you have a house full of teenagers;

. . . Whether you’re happy with how you and your family members communicate, or you’d like to learn about an alternative;

. . . Whether you use rewards or punishments in your parenting, or you don’t;

. . . Whether you love working full-time outside the home, or being a stay-at-home parent, or you aren’t happy with your current status and want to consider changing it;

. . . Whether your family loves having your children in school, or homeschooling, or unschooling, or you aren’t happy with your children’s current schooling situation and would like to consider other options;

. . . Whether you love breastfeeding and the family bed, or the opposite, or aren’t sure what to do and want more information;

. . . Whether you have only the occasional conflict with your spouse, or are planning divorce.

However it is for you, I welcome you here with a open heart, and open arms. I hope you find you are interested in and able to integrate at least some of the family life possibilities you discover here.

Below you’ll find a list of family life possibilities I have available for you to explore right now on this website.

This list is just beginning to grow though, so feel free to check back often. Or, if you’d like to be notified whenever I add a new web page, and hopefully get inspired along the way, you can subscribe to my blog.

Here is the current list of family life possibilities you can explore on my site:

  • Family Communication: Learn about the communication method that has helped me and my family so very much. It forms the foundation for virtually all of my offerings.

  • My Blog: TLC for Your Family is my ezine turned blog, from my heart to yours, aiming to meet your needs for inspiration and support, as you explore what might be possible in your family life, parenting, schooling, staying or working at home, and more.
