OK, It’s time for some honesty.

I’m going to tell you who I REALLY am.

I spent most of my life:

… trying my best to follow the rules and do the right thing.
… working my butt off — and most of the time, my efforts paid off.
… spending a lot of time and energy making other people happy (sometimes — OK, usually— at my expense).
… feeling pretty confident that I could be successful, as long as I knew what I was supposed to do. As long as there were rules to follow, I would succeed.

 

And I knew that when it came to parenting, I’d put a tremendous amount of pressure on myself to “get it right.”

But it turns out (ugh!) that there is no “right way” to parent. There are no rules to follow. Or maybe there are too many.

I knew I was supposed to trust my instinct, but I had spent so much much of my life following the rules… that I wasn’t sure what “my way” was.

I knew how I didn’t want to parent, but I wasn’t sure how I did want to parent.

I was petrified that my children would suffer.

I am so grateful that I found a solution.

 

My name is Rachel Bailey, and I help parents who feel helpless about handling their children’s behavior and feel guilty about not doing things the “right way.” I teach you how to redefine perfect parenting so that you feel confident in your ability to raise responsible, resilient children who believe in themselves and make healthy decisions.

Through Redefining Perfect Parenting programs, I will teach you how to be confident in your ability to raise your children to be the absolute best version of themselves – without requiring you or your child to match a certain image you have in your mind.

My success stems from my extensive professional background over the last 10 years. I have a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology and am a Certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator. I have worked as an adolescent ADHD Coach, an Academic Coach, a tutor and an in-home intensive counselor. My years as a psychotherapist for adolescents and young adults has also helped to teach me the real reasons they do the frustrating things they do.

More importantly,
 
I can help you because I completely understand where you’re coming from.
I am a mother and I do not always make the right decisions.

 

 
I feel so fortunate that my own children, as well as the children of hundreds of families I’ve worked with, are proof that
 
teaching children to believe in themselves,
giving them the tools to handle obstacles, and
creating a powerful connection with children
 
has a much more positive, long-term impact than saying or doing the “right thing” in the moment.

I won’t teach you how to be a perfect parent.
 
I will teach how to create YOUR foundation so that you can raise children who believe they are worthy of respect.
 
Children who make good choices, and children who thrive.

I look forward to helping you raise children who trust themselves and possess the tools that will lead to their
 
happiness and success.

No perfection required.
