WELCOME TO BECOMING A 3D PARENT
I am so happy you have found the 3D Parent Podcast. My name is Beaven Walters, and I am your host. Before I created the 3D Parent, I spent over 10 years teaching in various educational settings. I have always had a passion for working with children. After my first child was born, and not too long after my second, I discovered I was truly passionate about parenting in a way that worked for my children. So, I became a certified parent coach to help not only myself, but other parents who were struggling through a tough season in parenting just like me.
This podcast was created with the parent in mind. I am going to be covering the 3D Parent method and systems, so you can gain tangible tools to help you bring dignity, direction and deep connection to your family dynamic. My goal is to help you become the most confident parent you can be, and feel empowered in your parenting choices.
THINGS YOU WILL LEARN IN EP. 1: WELCOME TO BECOMING A 3D PARENT
[2:09] I share a bit about my story and background, and how I became a parent coach and founded the 3D Parent.
[8:21] Finding parent coaching enabled me to try to become a better parent for my child. But what I realized was instead of trying to mold her into what I thought she should be, I needed to spend more time learning and connecting with her on a deeper level.
[9:59] As my husband and I took this journey, me mostly bringing him along for the ride, we removed all of the techniques we were using that weren’t working. We made it safe for our daughter to experience her emotions and we started to see a shift in her behavior almost immediately.
[11:08] With these skills, I went back to work part time at a local elementary school and developed a social and emotional learning program for the local public school.
[11:44] After the birth of my third and fourth children. I stepped away from the program and waited for my next opportunities to present themselves. I found these opportunities in working at Northwest Family Therapy and doing a short segment regularly on a local news station.
[13:45] The goal of the 3D Parent is to support and empower parents, and help them build strong lasting family relationships.
QUOTES FROM WELCOME TO
BECOMING A 3D PARENT
“The answers were not in a book or a workshop. The answer was right there in front of me … I had to get to know [my daughter] on a much deeper level …”
“And as we stayed present to her and helped her make sense of these feelings and emotions inside her, and stayed present to her, we started seeing radical changes in her behavior, and our relationship grew and deepened.”
“I really enjoyed my work, but it didn’t feel like I was really fulfilling what I could be in being primarily a support to parents who were struggling in a way that I had been.”
