Welcome to Hope for Parents. I’m Kathy Thomas.
Parenting is tough. You want to be the best parent you can be but when kids act out, coping with their behaviour can be very stressful, tough on your relationships, and disruptive for the rest of the family. Wouldn’t it be great if all it took were a few words to correct the way your child behaves? Not so easy. Managing a family is intense and before you know it – a crisis has arrived!Learn More
You Can Have a Calmer and Happier Household
Eventually I found the parenting guidance I so desperately needed and let me tell you – IT REALLY WORKED! Suddenly, I was no longer alone, my partner and I learned how to accept (and sometimes even appreciated) each other’s different parenting styles, and my kids began living in a much calmer and happier household. I was convinced there was a BIG need out there for parents who needed help much like me.
Recognizing that need was motivation enough to begin an intense training certification program after completing an honor year in psychology. Today I am proud of the close relationships I have with my 2 daughters and 5 grandchildren.
The parent-child relationship is one of the most important and complex relationships in a parent’s life. l offer guidance, hope, dedication, and, in some cases, a safe harbour to the many parents I’ve supported along the way, helping them stay close with the ones they love while keeping their sanity at the same time!
I’ve combined all the strategies and techniques I’ve learned into a practical and effective process to provide a modern resource for today’s parents.

I first met with Kathy in 2008 and we clicked right away!!! My girls were teenagers at the time and I needed some tips on how to be a better parent and not lose my mind at the same time. There are so many advantages to having a Kathy as our parent coach. I work with her regularly - it is a great experience. Kathy has taught my husband and I that its the way you communicate that really counts to keep the relationship going even with our hormonal, irrational, alien like teenagers. I've also learned to separate my feelings and not take it personally. Kathy has eased our parenting journey because we have learned to set up boundaries not only for our kids but with our entire family, parents and in laws.Kathy has eased our parenting journey
Just wanted to drop you a note to say THANK YOU! Your sessions have helped Ben and I beyond what we expected. It took some time for us to adjust and now we can't imagine parenting any other way. The improvements we have seen in Connor are drastic. My mother in law commented to me this morning that she has not seen "this Connor" in over 8 months. He is actually fun to be around, As I say this on the brink of tears and almost a sense of guiltiness, this past Sunday I spent an entire morning alone with him doing something fun for him and I actually enjoyed myself. I really cannot remember the last time this has happened. Thank you so much for your time and know that we both have your number as I don't doubt we will need to use it again.Kathleen & Ben Moore
