Solutions for Everyday Life with Children


Welcome! If you have questions about bringing up your kids to become great adults, here are solid, practical answers.

The questions here are ones I hear from parents every day.  You may find all the answers you need here. You might decide that you'd like even more.

If you'd like solutions designed just for your family,  I can help.  I can meet with you in person in the San Francisco Bay Area and by Skype or telephone all over the world. Most parents say that they feel better about their child and their parenting skills after our very first meeting and that a short term consultation leads to long term results. You can choose a single visit, a short term coaching plan, or a flexible hourly rate.

To arrange a personal consultation email me at megzweiback@gmail.com
