Button, button, who’s got a button?

Here’s a sneak peek at the back cover of Laura’s and my first soon-to-be-released children’s picture book, BUTTONS! It will be available on Amazon soon! This book is for little people ages 2-5. You’ll even catch a glimpse of Santa within the pages of BUTTONS, so it’s the perfect gift for Christmas!

Coaching Tips for Parents

Parenting is one of the most challenging and rewarding jobs on the planet, but it doesn’t come with a manual. I’ve read tons of parenting books, solicited my fair share of advice from successful parents, attended parenting classes, like Nurtured Heart, and listened to Love and Logic DVDs. I’m not too proud to have paid good money (and well spent, might I add) for a life coach during rough patches.

Recently, I’ve been on the other side of the coaching conversation as a new teacher coach. It turns out; the same coaching questions that empower beginning teachers to thrive in the classroom are the same questions that can inspire your adult child to reach their full potential. These coaching techniques are so life changing; I just had to share them with you. It would be just plain selfish not to. Stay tuned for excepts from my upcoming parenting book, 10 Tips to Coach Your Young Adult Child for Success.

This book is as cute as a BUTTON!

I am so excited to publish my first children’s picture book, BUTTONS, with my talented daughter, Laura Ambrosio! This book has been 5 months in the making. We started working with an amazing illustrator, Sarah G., from peopleperhour.com back in April. BUTTONS will be available on Amazon soon! This book is for little people ages 2-5! Stay tuned for sneak peeks inside BUTTONS!
