Welcome to Balanced Parenting

Join our new group

 We are creating a group for women to connect with one another. To chat, to complain, to share and to connect. If you feel this is the elixir you need, please send an email to Bette@balancedparenting.com and we will figure out what days and times work for everyone. 

Space is limited – even if we begin virtually.


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: Pushing Through

Life can be hard, at times. We can lie down and let it roll over us or we can stand up to the challenges and let them make us smarter and stronger.

Teaching our kids the importance of “pushing through” the hard moments and even talking about it as a family value is one of the greatest gifts you can give your kids. 

Are you modeling the skill of pushing through? When you do, share it with your kids so they see what it looks like and know they’ll come out better on the other end – even though it’s really really hard!


"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!”
