Michelle Bowen is a parent empowerment coach, entrepreneur and mother to a child who she gave birth to at the early stages of her awakening. The only way for Michelle to continue to further expand in her awakening was to utilize her relationship with her child. Your Child is Your Guide was birthed from her own process with her child that brought about an enormous transformation in her own life. In her practice, she specializes in guiding you to the realization of the divinity of your child and your relationship with them which initiates a level of accountability that aids in the acceleration of both your healing and actualization. Michelle learned that her child was her guide and provides you with guidance and applicable practices that allow you to see the same. The courses created by Michelle along with her other offerings show you how to achieve the actualization of the unconditionally loving relationship you want with your children.

Register for the Teens and Screens Audio Summit

I have five AMAZING guests talking about all things screens – our teens attachment to their screens, setting limits that are useful, gaming, tech and the brain, and finally, having those conversations about WHAT they are posting on social media…

Inside of these interviews are tips and strategies for helping our kids stay safe online, developing their own internal compass around using tech, knowing when their screen time is a problem, and how to nurture your RELATIONSHIP with your teen so that they will drop their defensiveness and engage in meaningful conversation with you.

Cost is $29 until the summit starts.

The summit will go live October 12th – 16th. It is appropriate for anyone raising tweens/preteens or teens.

The conversations are enlightening and helpful – find out more about the speakers and register at www.joyfulcourage.com/tsms
