Welcome to Balanced Parenting


Parenting is one of the hardest jobs you will ever have…but you don’t have to do it alone!

If you are…
Fighting meltdowns, defiance or angry attitudes...
Exhausted at the end of a day with your kids…
Feeling like you have to argue or negotiate with your kids day and night…
Worried your children are not respectful or expect too much of you…
Tearing your hair out from your baby’s sleep issues…
Wondering if you expect too little of your kids...

Then you have found the right place! We are here to help bring peace and a balance to your family.
We are Balanced Parenting.


Through private sessions, parenting parties, and speaking engagements, parents all over Southern California are learning about the “Balanced Parenting” methods of raising kids to become great adults.

Value of the month (November):

Gratitude is believed to be “the great multiplier”.  The more grateful we are, the more we are likely to receive.

Teaching our kids the importance of gratitude is also a mindfulness practice.  When we are being grateful, we are fully in the present moment. We aren’t lamenting was was or wasn’t, we aren’t yearning for something in the future, we are fully here and now and expressing our thanks for what is right now.

Make November the month of gratitude.  Create gratitude practices at dinner or bedtime and make gratitude an important part of your family’s value system!

I’m so thankful that you visited my site and took the time to read this!! 😊



"My 5 yr. old son was throwing tantrums and creating major stress in our family. After two sessions, Bette found the real issues and gave me the tools and encouragement to be a better parent. After a few weeks, my son’s behavior improved dramatically and just keeps getting better!”
