Why the balance MAP?
Let’s face it, parenthood is a job. Yet unlike most jobs, it lacks one crucial element–training and development. Unfortunately for parents, parenthood has been branded as instinctual, causing millions to wonder “what’s wrong with me?” when the job doesn’t feel natural or come easy. It makes sense that parents feel lost sometimes. Factor in the fast-paced world in which we live, and raising a family is more complicated than ever before.
While the concept of professional development might not sound exciting, it is a proven practice in the business world because it works! US companies spend thousands of dollars and over 41 hours per employee – every year – to help their employees be more successful. Every job demands it. You need classes and a license to drive a car, cut hair, and do nails. Even the leading coffee chain spends three weeks on training each new employee–all to make a great cup of coffee. If training and development is essential for success for these jobs, wouldn’t it benefit parenthood as well?
Out with the Manual, in with the MAP
Like you, most parents stopped looking for the proverbial manual years ago. Why? The answer is simple – all parents are different. There is no “one way” to raise a child. How could there be? Each parent has their own unique set of circumstances, values, experiences, strengths, and needs. It would be impossible to address all the issues and much of the information would be irrelevant to you and your situation.
What every parent needs, however is a map. A map gives you a lay of the land, lets you see where you are, where you want to go, and how to get there. Most importantly, a map is flexible and allows each of us different starting and ending points. And for every destination, there are a number of different paths to get there.
The Fastest and Easiest way to greater balance, success and happiness
As a parent, your most precious resources are time and energy. The balance MAP maximizes both! Based on your responses, it defines what success looks like to you, and then creates the fastest and easiest path to get you there.
