Do you find yourself struggling to feel effective as a parent?

Would you like to know a short cut to speaking the language of your child’s heart?

What if there truly was a way to maximize Mom-time in overloaded schedules?!

You most likely started into parenting feeling fully rested, a little anxious,
but excited to meet that little bundle of sunshine that would arrive and change your world! You imagined:

Cuddles and snuggles

Unconditional love of a child

A cute little child who showed an obvious resemblance of you and your husband

And watching that sweet child happily grow and change over the years.

How many times have I looked at each individual child-so unique, so gifted—and wondered if I would ever truly understand how to best walk alongside them as a mother, a teacher and a mentor? The You Zoo is a phenomenally practical, creative and inductive tool that will give you a much-needed lens into viewing how your child thinks, feels and experiences life. You will laugh, affirm, celebrate and gain life-changing insight along with your child as together you are handed the gift of perspective with clarity, sensitivity, and compassion
–Ghena Burson, M.A. Curriculum and Instruction and Homeschooling Mom

Then you started down the real journey, quickly sleep-deprived,
a bit more anxious, and possibly surprised that this little pottying, burping,
crying bundle was totally dependent on you and it rocked your world! You then experience:

Sweet cuddles that might yield an urp or toot or some other undesirable noise or substance

That sometimes you have to trick them into sitting still long enough to snuggle

A child that sasses or says things you’d never imagined hearing

That little one not only resembles you both but has some traits that you wish neither of you possessed

And that despite people saying,

“Enjoy these years…they go so fast!”

there are days that you question if time will ever pass, or if you will make it to see this child grow up!

You see, parenting is hard work! And no matter how much you love your child or love parenting

parenting is hard work!

I will be the first to admit that I came into adulthood full of dreams and excited to be a wife and mother. I have since teased my mom that she made marriage and parenting look far too easy! While I love being a mom, there are parts of this job that feel like they just might do me in!

parenting is hard work

The truth is, parenting is not only hard work

And I want to help you learn to speak the language of your child’s heart!

You can maximize your joy as you do the heart work of parenting!

Imagine being able to…

Motivate your child with positive means

Identify their unique emotional needs

Appreciate your personality differences

Encourage them to grow in their strengths

Target your time to meet their needs

Anticipate what will work with them

Help them minimize their struggles

Connect with them at a deeper level

Adjust your approach to be effective

Imagine sharing more laughter,
more joy, and a meaningful connection!

“Dynamic! Fun! You’ll walk away with a greater understanding of your personality and how you are uniquely created.”—Tammy Busse, Mom

I'm Jami Kirkbride, founder of Parenting with Personality

As a licensed professional counselor, speaker, author, personality trainer, and mother of seven, I have found personalities to be one of the biggest and best keys to truly understanding others, and especially my children. Our kids vary in age from 3-21…yes, you read that right We are doing everything from potty training to wedding planning! And oh my, all the stages in between!

If I didn’t know this personality stuff, I’d think I was losing my mind! Because you see what works beautifully with one, might be a total flop with another! And what truly motivates one to action can totally shut another down. I could devote several hours to something I might imagine a child would like, but if it misses the mark with their personality, that time can appear a big waste. Knowing the personality information has given me a beautiful framework in which to understand each child, appreciate each child, and actively meet the unique emotional needs of each child.  

 

As a mother, I can not imagine parenting without knowing the different personalities. I believe I am a much better mom knowing why my kids are driven to act certain ways. I have much more patience towards behavior I may not understand. I believe I can help them understand themselves and how they are amazing just the way they are wired. Without the knowledge of different personalities, I may be more harsh and believe my way of doing things is the only correct way. I am so thankful I studied the different personalities and am able to see things clearer through other people’s eyes.

—Ashley Howe, Photographer and Homeschooling Mom

There are a ton of parenting programs out there, but most of those focus on target behaviors or particular methods. This parenting approach is different. We focus on the heart of your child! And that’s why we focus on the heart work of parenting.

Here's how we make it happen

Learning the Language
of Your Child's Heart

Visual and Verbal Cues | Inherent Strengths | Potential Struggles | Unique Emotional Needs | Parent Personality | Parenting Tips Specific to Each Personality | Combinations of Parent-Child Personalities
