Ep. 88 - Fostering Deep Connection with Your Children with Dr. Justin Coulson


with Dr. Justin Coulson

Today on the Fresh Start Family Show, Terry and I sit down to chat with Dr. Justin Coulson, author of 21 Days to a Happier Family and 9 Ways to a Resilient Child. 

Justin is a father of SIX daughters (amazing … SIX daughters!) & an incredible parent coach who is talking with us how to foster a deep connection with our girls (and all of our children really). 

Through Dr. Coulson’s own incredible story and parenting journey he gifts us with beautiful bits of wisdom on how to dive deeper into our relationships with our kids through understanding, effective discipline, and empowerment.

What if you could be an effective, firm & kind parent WITHOUT relying on fear, force, bribery & rewards?


Parenting your kids with calmness & confidence each day in a way that causes them to do what’s asked of them because they WANT to (not because they HAVE to) … because you’re helping to build essential life skills that have them behaving well & being respectful when you’re NOT looking!

Imagine learning a new way of firm (AND kind) parenting so you can end painful generational parenting cycles and create family legacies & memories YOU are proud of?

All while getting your kids to cooperate with your rules and boundaries with ease.

The Firm & Kind Parenting Blueprint is your step by step plan & video training to help you build the family of your dreams.
