Mission: To help both parents and children regardless of their age to work through their issues to gain greater freedom from emotional aguish if they are willing to listen, learn, and grow.
How: I teach and encourage through blogging, the arts of story telling, private musical instruction of the violin, piano, cello, and voice and through academic instruction/tutoring of science, math, spelling, reading, writing, Spanish, religion, and history.
Philosophy: Learning and growth happen best within the framework of RFTLL Respect. Forgive. Be Thankful. Listen and Learn.
Respect. Respect self, others, and authorities (even the ones you disagree with.)
Forgive. As humans we all need to be forgiven for something (probably daily). It also is one of the highest gifts we can bestow upon another. However, it does not mean to forget and allow others to keep hurting us. It means setting healthy boundaries.
Be Thankful. A grateful heart is a cheerful heart. Expect and demand nothing. But give thanks in all.
Listen and Learn: Put the phone down. Focus. Listen to who needs to be speaking. And listen with a heart open to learn something new about the person, yourself, and situation.
