Wouldn't it be nice if there was just ONE Golden, Magical Parenting Manual to get us from birth to adulthood when raising out kids? Parents are bombarded with thousands of opinions and frameworks that feel impossible to implement, while dodging the mines, barbed wire, and explosions of our parenting world. Join us with guest, Amanda Armbruster of Take A Break Tots, as we explore the parenting experience in the battlefield and how we can build our toolkit to survive, thrive, and raise kids who flourish.
For the last decade, Amanda has worked with young children and their families as a teacher, graduate student, Licensed Professional Counselor, and now in her own home as a mom. Amanda started Take a Break Tots to bring information about child development, behavior, discipline, and social-emotional intervention from the clinical world to the average household and classroom. She strives to help caregivers support the social and emotional development of the young children in their lives. Amanda provides lots of free information and personal parenting stories on her Instagram page and Blog. Through consultations Amanda provides personalized behavior and discipline plans that meet the needs of the whole family.
