"THANK YOU! There were so many aha moments... For so long now I have felt like I had to control and fix everything and if it wasn't working I must be failing... what a heavy feeling. I entered this course to help essentially one child who struggles with weight but I've learned the weight struggle was mine. Her weight doesn't hold her back.... it was me. I was thinking by fixing this I could protect her from being made fun of or help her to look a certain way.... these were never her insecurities.... they were mine. It doesn't seem so overwhelming and hard now.
In fact, in such a short time I've gained so much from your course beyond food and weight. Now it's here we are, where do we want to be and let's take the steps together to get there.
As a family, I'm taking Me time and asking for help or moreso requesting it from my husband and kids. It makes me a better person, Mom, and wife all around. I'm also including the kids more in meal planning and what they bring to lunch or snack time. They feel like they have a voice and we can all feel good about our choices."
It’s time for change
As parents, we are worried about our kids’ weight.
We are frustrated with our own history of diets and working out just to be able to eat the food we actually love.
Now we are concerned that our kids are following the same path.
It’s time to stop feeling guilty
You know, the the long list of things we
Would be doing better
If only our kids just ate better, moved more, weren’t on the electronics,
If only we had more time and energy to focus on all the “right” things to do.
Let’s address the stress
of raising a healthy family, already full of never-ending To-Do lists, rules and expectations…
And then add on the worry about our kids’ weight.
What does it mean for:
Their long-term health
Their body image
Their relationship with food
What does it mean about how we’re raising them?

"Moms don't need anything more to stress about. This can take a bunch of stuff off their plate!!!
(I've) changed thoughts and perspective so I can lead by example."
Ashley, Mom of 2
"My kids are so different. My son is underweight and I felt so guilty that I fed my daughter every time she cried as a baby, and now she's overweight. They used to whine that they were hungry while I was cooking and it was such chaos.
Now, I have some peace while I am cooking and I feel like I am winning because they are eating their veggie or fruit before the meal even starts."

She's making you a better mom."
You're Not Lost... You've Just Found There is a Better Way
Even as a pediatrician, I still had worries about my family's weight and health. Controlling food and activity just created friction with my kids - and I thought I was failing them. Through coaching, that changed because I changed. The Family in Focus approach was born from my own powerful transformation.
I now help parents worried about their children's weight build a healthier whole family. Because working just with the child overlooks the role of the parent to set the tone and lead the family to health.
