Empowers parents with tools to be organized and in control

Meet Brenda

Brenda Trott, M.Ed enables parents and teachers with the tools they need to feel organized and in control.  Former teacher and mother of four children, she understands  first hand the challenges facing parents and started MyParentingCoach.com to support them.

She spent 10 years as a preschool director building her business from an in-home childcare provider, to 3 locations, and finally a Child Care Center with 15 employees.  After obtaining her master’s degree in Early Childhood and Elementary education, Brenda taught in the public school systems of MT, NV, and TX.  Her favorite grade was always the the one she was teaching!

Brenda passionately believes that parents know their children best.  Many systems in our social and school systems make them second guess themselves or give them information overload.  Her mission is to support and encourage them in every area of their life.

When she isn’t shuttling her children back and forth from school, she can be found eating chocolate chip cookie dough while her Cheweenies Buddy and Hershey keep a watchful eye. She is a freelance writer and enjoys writing children’s stories as well as how to books for parents.

    Just wanted to say thanks for coming over to my blog, the follow and entering the giveaway. I am now following you. I really like your site and was wondering if you could give any tips or start a discussion on having to remind kids to do stuff? My oldest is 11 and he is driving me batty. I ALWAYS have to remind him about stuff – homework, brush your teeth, wash your hair, don’t forget your violin, gym clothes, uniform etc… – this is everyday and it is slowly making me INSANE! I guess I want to know if it is normal or not – if it’s a boy thing or just a kid thing? Also the complete lack of caring – I don’t know if that goes along with him forgetting stuff but he seems numb at times. Like ‘whatever’ to everything.
    Any info/tips/pointers/discussions you could offer me right now would be heaven sent because I really don’t know what to do anymore.
    Thanks a ton.
