Last month I was lucky enough to be invited to a Breakfast Networking Event in Boston, Massachusetts, hosted by Jaclyn Zukerman, Editor in Chief of NEXTonSCENE®. The event was located at a beautiful clothing boutique, Sloane & Ivy, in Wellesley, Ma. A number of Influencers, local area Business Woman and Boston Socialites were in attendance at this event that included light bites, sips of bubbly, a lip spa treatment by Novo Sano Med Spa, and a speaking engagement from the guest of honor, Amanda Houle from Parenting with a Punch. How EXCITING! Amanda is a Parenting Strategist and Behavior Therapist.
I was honored to attend this event and so inspired by all of the Woman that filled the room. The energy was Amazing, I mean a room full of Boss Babes, you can only imagine. Lit!

Amanda's speech during the event was completely relatable and really made me take a step back and truly listen to what she was saying. Essentially, It is necessary to get a grip if you will with your own emotions before interacting with your child. Even if it means taking a few deep breaths or removing yourself from the situation, stepping out of the room even. She doesn't believe in Time Out and only believes in parenting with positive reinforcement. A client of Amanda's also spoke and gave a true testimonial full of raw emotion that told the story of how her child was out of control and as a mother she didn't know where to turn. But, thanks to Amanada, she now has an independent child who has learned how to cope with his emotions. It was moving and inspiring to say the least.
I am honored to connect with all of the woman who attended this event but really Amanda, she is on a mission to improve a healthier household world wide! Wow. Just Wow!
