We chat to parenting coach Denise Suarez, founder of Con Cariño.
Denise Suarez is based in Madrid and also offers her services online.
She works with parents who would like to improve communication with their children for a more enjoyable parenting experience and finds solutions that work for the whole family.
She talks about family values, the importance of collaboration within a mixed marriage and how cultural differences should be appreciated.
[0:30] On your website you say, helping you to enjoy parenting more. Why do you think we need to learn how to enjoy being parents?
Denise Suarez: “This came from me just speaking to so many parents, and a lot of the vibe I got was they feel just like tired. They’d say ‘Am I doing things OK?’ ‘Is what I’m doing right?’ And then there was ‘I knew parenting would be hard, but I didn’t think it would be this hard, this isn’t what I signed up for!’. I realised that we’re missing that part of actually enjoying being with our kids. It’s become too much of a job. It’s something like, we have to love the journey while we’re on it. That’s what I strive to help parents with.”
