Episode 24: Healthy Parenting with Susan Holt

Raising kids is one of the toughest and yet most rewarding jobs in the world — and it is also one that might make you feel the most unprepared. We’ve all been there. However, today’s guest will help you be a more intentional parent and raise emotionally intelligent children.  In this episode of the WHoly Mom chat, I sat down with Susan Holt, a board-certified Family Life Coach to discuss her journey to become a Life Coach, the parenting pyramid, and how to parent effectively with Susan’s CALM method. 

Susan Townsend Holt, M.Ed, is a Board-Certified Family Life Coach, a parent educator with her own coaching business, and also on the faculty of Everyday Parenting Solutions.  She serves on the board of the Family Life Coaching Association and has the additional joy of serving as Director of Family Ministry for Community West Church.  Susan has come alongside adults, children, and teachers in building healthy relationships and managing “big feelings” for 30 years, at home and in the classroom. She is blessed with a husband of 38 years and two strong and beautiful grown daughters.

Listen in as we discuss: 

  • Susan shares her experiences growing up and how that experience led her to become an educator and life coach. 
  • What is the Parenting Pyramid?
  • How to apply the CALM method in parenting?
  • What to do if you have an argument with your spouse in front of your children?
