Raising a child with difficult behaviors can be more than exhausting...it can actually be painful. It can hurt just getting out of bed in the morning.
The day in and day out of being with a child who
rejects you, defies you, and disrespects you can put you in a place of even questioning your decision to become a mother. This level of stress
leaves you tired, angry, frustrated, physically sick, resentful, sad, tearful, and/or hopeless.
But who really "gets" what it is like for you?
If you're like most mothers raising a child with difficult behaviors, the answer to this question is probably
"Nobody." Zilch. Zippo. No one, not even your best friend.
If you're like I was, you've actually tried to reach out for support, only to find people who either minimize your
struggles or even blame you for them. Then, of course, there are the ones who give you all the advice on how they
would handle things differently and how they would just "lay down the law." You know this won't work and most importantly, you don't feel
heard or understood.
Not having someone truly "get" you is one of the loneliest places to be. You originally set out on your parenting journey to
connect, to love, and to make a difference in a child's life, only to find yourself at your brink---at your screaming
edge, unsure if you even want to be a mother anymore, much less get up out of bed to face it all over again for the day.
It's your turn!
Yes, you. No need to look around your shoulder as if I'm speaking to someone different. You're the one and it is finally your turn!
I know you have been working to love your children and to make it all work, but an essential piece has been missing...love for yourself.
You cannot give what you don't have.
I've been there with you.
Several years ago, I knew I had to make a change in me or else serious damage was going to happen. My life had not turned out to
be a happy story on Main Street; it was a nightmare on Elm Street. The challenges I faced as a mother came about not only from raising children with traumatic histories, but from the void of my own sense of internal calm, peace, and self-love.
I wanted out. I wanted it all to end.
Yet, from the depths of my soul and deep within a space tucked within the caverns of my heart, I knew there had to be a happy way out. This sense of "life can be okay" was still barely alive but it was screaming in a voice so loud I could no longer ignore it, even amongst the chaos engulfing me within my own home.
Hence, my quest to find my way out of the stress and chaos and return back to love began...
I did it and I can help you find it, too.
My "Every Day is Mother's Day" conference has been created to help you return back to happiness, love, and peace.
It is designed to give you the beeline to making this happen for you. I've done the research. I've done all the trial testing. I'm streamlined the process to perfection.
And now I want you to have a process to clear the emotional pain, find happiness, and reclaim love back into your life! I want to support you through your process and give you the "how" to make it a reality in your life!
I want you to be happy and to get yourself back!
As mothers, we are often asked to give more to our families and to our children than what we have within ourselves. It often feels impossible to stop to take care of ourselves because if we stop then we fear our families will not only fall apart, but utterly collapse. We hold on by a mere thread yet at the same time we desperately want so much more---we want happiness, joy, and peace.
Due to the great needs of your family, economics, and other logistical issues, you may not be able to come to me. So, I'm coming to you through the
Internet to make this happen.
A Video Message from Heather.
Really? A conference Online?
I asked myself this same question and the resounding answer was, "Yes! Of course!" Anything is possible when you put enough passion behind it (and
with a little help from our friend, Technology). Through an Internet Video Conference service, I will be conducting this conference in the privacy of your own home.
I will be LIVE with you through my webcam and have the ability to show Powerpoint slides, videos, and music.
The only requirements on your end are to have
high speed Internet access, a pair of earphones, and the willingness to try something new.
Additionally, you will be able to connect with other moms participating in this online conference. I'll be able to bring other moms online with me to share their experiences (and this is also an option for you if you would like and you have a webcam). This part of the conference will look something like this:
Here's the 5-Day Schedule:
This Online Conference will take place over a 5-day period...we will meet each day for five days in a row. This is necessary to keep moving forward in your healing process by meeting five consecutive days, without a long break to keep you from reverting into old patterns. We'll start on a weekend for two intensive days, and then continue for three more days. Here are the dates and times:
COMING SPRING 2016!
At first glance, it may seem impossible to be able to block out these times with all the demands you face every day as a mother. The reality, however,
is that by not making this time to heal your own heart, you and your child will stay in a continuous negative loop. If you're feeling like the picture
with the broken heart, feeling as if your child has managed to hand deliver feelings of sadness, brokenness, and hopelessness, it will require making
a major adjustment in your household routine for 5 days. Just 5 days.
If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!
Solutions always exist. It just takes creativity, courage, and permission to make it happen for yourself.
Find people in your life who will support you in
your decision to participate in this conference: husband, partner, grandparents, friends, neighbors, babysitters, relatives.
This is your turn to be just
as demanding as your child! Ask for the help and if you have to, demand the help. You and your family are worth it.
Can I just listen to the recording in my spare time?
This online conference is designed to be a personal healing experience with me and other mothers from around the globe. It will be much more than just
a lecture or typical training that can be burned onto a CD. It is in the power of connection through our coming together as a whole group that the
synergy of this experience will be created. Too much will be lost to listen to it on your own, so recordings will not be available.
What to expect in these 5 days.
This online conference is different from any of the other trainings I do, and for that matter, different than anything I have ever seen offered on the
Internet. It will be all about helping you get your life back and giving you the chance to process
anger, frustration, sadness, hopelessness, and other difficult feelings. I will be leading you and supporting you through exercises to help you get
in touch with what is behind your reactive moments with your children. The deepest form of love in the present within comes from learning how to forgive
those in your life who hurt you in the past.
I will also be helping you to find new ways to keep from falling back into old patterns and how to move forward in your life, no matter the outcome
of your children's behaviors. Your children need you to be the best you can be in order for them to be the best they can be. These five days
are designed to get you on that path and to help you reclaim yourself, your life, and your sanity!
Expect to be educated and develop a deeper understanding as to what drives you to your brink.
Learn how to be an empowered mom from deep within yourself. Expect to receive encouragement and to be
energized by the power of women coming together in one place -- feel the synergy in such a gathering (even online!).
It will require you to set time aside for you, just as if you were traveling to another city to actually attend a conference in person. But this is
exactly what you need in order to change the patterns in your home. Please seriously consider doing this for you and for your family!
From the hearts of other Moms.
Here's what other mothers said after attending my last Every Day is Mother's Day Online conference just a couple of weeks ago:
"The conference was far more personal than I ever thought it could be being that it was online. Sharing with the other mothers and having them share as well, really made it powerful."
"It was so cool to see Heather up close and 'live'! I felt like Heather was talking right to me and I had a chance to receive her wisdom and insight in a personal way (closer than at a conference somewhere). The women who went on-screen made the conference so real and down-to-earth and I felt not-isolated!"
"I felt like Heather was in my home talking one on one."
"This 'Me' time was so significantly important to me. The amount of time was perfect and Heather pinpointed the areas I needed work with. Her dedication, passion, and energy made this a truly unique and healing experience."
Okay...how much is this going to cost me?
Instead of having the expense of traveling out of town, this online conference is available to you right in your own home. Compare the costs of these
two types of events:
Hotel for 3 nights
That is a $900 savings!
For that amount, you can easily afford a babysitter to come into your home and watch your children to get your privacy.
Plus, you'll be receiving in the mail, a special gift package to pamper
you and get you prepared for your 5-day event! What's in the package, you ask? Well, I can't tell you...
it's a surprise! It is
a collection of items I have picked out especially for you.
Register here -- It's safe and secure.
Registering online is easy, 100% safe and secure. You'll be directed to our secure shopping cart and once you register, you'll be sent an
email with all the conference instructions. Please be sure to check your spam folder if you don't receive this confirmation email.
COMING SPRING 2016!
"This conference helped me recapture a part of myself that thought I had lost."
"It's an incredibly powerful conference for personal healing; the weights were lifted, and I am able to see clearly. I found
my wings again and remembered how to fly."
"This conference provided me the tools and support I needed to become emotionally whole."
"The exercises allowed me to get to pain and hurt and healing in a way no other work I've done to date has been able
to accomplish. Because of this, I can truly see and believe that I am a good parent even when my children don't respond positively to me."
I believe in this conference so much that I will back it with a full money back guarantee. If you are not completely satisfied
by the end of the fifth day, for any reason, just let me know at the conclusion of the conference
and you will receive a full refund. No need to return your gift...I want you to have that, regardless.
A video message that "gets" your struggle.
More about Heather T. Forbes, LCSW
Author of three best selling books on raising children with traumatic histores, Heather is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW)
who knows not only from her professional training, but from her personal experience as a mother, what it takes to raise children who can challenge
you beyond human limits.
Heather's basic believe is that society can no longer ignore the findings of brain research and neuroscience, that trauma has a major impact on a
child's developing nervous system as well as the child's belief system. Yet, while all of this is important to take into consideration, none of it is
valuable until you know how to put it into action in the home. Her passion is in helping parents bridge the gap between the science and love-based
parenting in order to create environments that foster not just behavioral change in children, but deep healing.
"Heather has tremendous insights into how and why
our behavior impacts our children. I learned so much
about myself and how I can improve my relationship
with my son." - Susan
Heather travels around the nation working to educate and support parents raising children with traumatic histories. She strongly believes that the healing
of the child is directly correlated to the healing of the parents and the family system. Heather sees the importance of working with mothers
and how the "mom dynamic" has to be in alignment and balanced before the family can move forward effectively.
Her work with moms centers on
empowering mothers to move out of hopelessness, shame, resentment, victimhood, and into happiness, love for self, joy, and internal peace.
What will not be covered:
This conference will focus on helping mothers in their internal heart-centered healing process. It is very different from the Beyond Consequences
Online Parenting course. If you are in need of understanding more about the Beyond Consequences Parenting Model with parenting techniques and
examples, please visit the following website for
information on the parenting course: www.BeyondConseqencesOnline.com
Peace in your home begins with you.
You simply want your children to be okay. But how can they be okay if you're not okay? Your children can't get better
if you are at a point of depletion or at your screaming edge.
The only way to make a change in your family is to make the change within yourself.
Yet, very few of us were taught how to do this and more importantly, were never given the permission to do it.
This conference will lead you through that process and help you reclaim yourself and your happiness!
Taking "control" of your children or having "power" over them comes from the depth of your relationship with them, not through
punitive or fear-based parenting techniques. If you wake up and don't even want to me a mother, you will not be able to create
a safe relationship with your children. Peace in your home begins with you. This conference will give you the experience and
the tools in order to be the BEST you can be, thus the best mother you can be!
COMING SPRING 2016!
This is an opportunity you won't want to miss. Registering is safe, easy, and secure. I hope you'll come join me!
