Hello, I’m Monica.

Welcome to “Home Is My Happy Place”. A parent’s lifestyle blog.

A Bit of Backstory 

I’ve always known I wanted to help people because it’s brought me the most fulfillment, work-wise. So, I decided to turn something I’d been doing for years into my career, motivating and helping people through advice or talk. Today I’m a certified life coach and I’m pursuing a psychology degree.

What I Do

I coach parents on concepts that will help them have a better relationship with their children, I present on parenting concepts in schools, and I hold classes to teach these parenting concepts.

Throughout the 4 years that I worked with children as a coach, I had the chance to hear about their…

  • Feelings
  • Needs
  • Wishes
  • Favorite part of the day
  • Least favorite part of the day and how they would like to change it

After learning these things and noticing repeated answers and common factors I felt I had to switch my focus to PARENTS because the parent is the one who needs to make the change first! 

My Reason for This Blog

I want to help you. And I love doing it! 

I’ve had many parents who couldn’t thank me enough for reminding them or teaching them about these simple parenting concepts. Many of you know this stuff and that’s awesome. But are you applying it? Do you know the why behind the importance of implementing these concepts? If you do, wonderful! But if you don’t you and your children (your entire household) will benefit from these simple to apply parenting concepts.

Like many of you, I’m constantly seeking to grow and find easier, better, smarter, more efficient ways of doing things. All the way from communicating with our kids to cleaning the house. If there’s a shortcut, I want to know about it. So, I hope this site will help you in some way, big or small. 

My Blog And What You’ll Find

Lots of parenting stuff!

As a life coach, who began working solely with children, I’ve had the opportunity to learn about the concerns, wishes, and thoughts of our children. Their wishes and many of their thoughts are simple. They want love and quality time from their parents. And so, I’ve put together and share with you, key points to ten simple parenting concepts that can make a world of difference in the relationship between you and your children.

Along with cool places to visit with your kids and projects to do with them.

I also share some of my personal experiences, the great stuff happening now, and the amazing things that the future holds, God willing.

Home Is My Happy Place

Is a big advocate of creating a Happy Home, Not a Perfect Home.

This means a space that’s filled with:

  • Love and support.
  • Parents who take care of their overall well-being and their own relationship.
  • Kids who spread happiness throughout our home and are receiving the love and support the need to thrive.

Our home is a space where we can welcome anything that lights us up. For me, it happens to be my family, friends, love, respect, kindness, fun and yummy food:)

From a wife and a mother of two, I hope you enjoy and thank you for visiting.

Happy Reading,

Monica
