Mom Inspiration Cards to Help You Stay Positive in Tough Situations

About the Hostess
I’m Wendy Bertagnole, a lover of chocolate, lover of heavy-weights, a believer in wearing yoga clothes most every day, and a mother of three kids. I work with moms who are frustrated with their children’s behavior, helping them to understand the reason behind the behavior, address it directly and once again enjoy motherhood and their children. Not every child shows up 100% happy and willing to cooperate every moment of every day, which can be frustrating. I believe every behavior is a form of communication and I am here to help every mom understand what her child is communicating through their behavior.

What Others Are Saying
“I love how you flow through your sessions- parents need to hear that validation that their child is different and it’s ok. I love the personal support you give to each question- real tools to solve real problems. I love the science you give to teach how to problem solve with your child. Many OT probably can’t address this the same way and it’s an essential part of how to learn and grow with your sensory child.”
“My kids are actually having fewer explosive emotions now that I’m giving them more respect as humans by giving them more power and being more empathic.. they’re sharing their emotions a LOT more, and even when my son (who tends to experience his emotions with his whole body!) does get upset, he is able to “reign it in” fairly quickly and tell me the problem calmly bec he seems confident I’m going to be on his side and together we’ll figure out a good solution that we’re both happy with.”
