“Trust yourself. And trust your children. When we trust our children, they learn to naturally trust themselves.” – Bonnie Harris

Hi  Soulful Mama,

I have so much wisdom for you this week in my straight-talking unedited conversation with Bonnie Harris, a child behavior and parenting expert and counselor, mama of 2, and author of two great parenting books.

Bonnie talks about her painful journey of letting go of her passion for acting to uncover her bigger purpose as a mom and a parenting educator. She also talks about finding her voice after a difficult childhood and gives you tips for being the best parent you can possibly be.

Here’s what we talked about:

  • How Bonnie tearfully left her absolute passion for acting to uncover her even bigger passion and purpose and took a huge, courageous move to turn it into reality (2:35)
  • How synchronicity lent a helping hand to help push Bonnie on her path (10:20)
  • Letting go of excuses and the need to be an “expert” to take the next step (14:22)
  • How Bonnie’s daughter was the biggest “obstacle” that she had to overcome to find her wisdom and expertise. (18:54)
  • How Bonnie found her voice after a very difficult childhood where she had to “be quiet” and have no opinions of her own (23:48)
  • Bonnie’s #1 tool to be an effective parent and some bonus tools (32:00)

This conversation will give you lots of ideas, tips and tools you can use become a more confident and effective mama. Bonnie is also generously gifting an audio version of her book to those who listen to this interview and get in touch with her. It’s packed with wisdom so you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity!
