August 25 - Raising Great Parents



This week's show highlights:

  • Clipping coupons and saving money
  • Raising Great Parents

As a single mom of a growing son, Stacey Cox had to learn to buy on a very strict budget because she didn't make a lot of money.  She had to adopt the concept of getting more for less through sales, discounts and coupons.  Prior to leaving for the store, she would create her shopping list based on what they needed, what she wanted to cook that week, and current sales.  Since her family had some favorite foods that were also easy meals such as pasta, she would stock up on pasta whenever it was on sale. By learning to stretch her money at the grocery store she also learned to look for coupons and sales when she shops for clothes and any other items her family needs.

Kiran is a mom to two young daughters and is currently raising her sweet family in Palo Alto, CA.  Kiran became a certified Integral Life and Leadership Coach with New Ventures West in 2011. She participated in the one year Parenting by Connection certification course with Hand in Hand Parenting in Palo Alto in 2011-2012.

Prior to starting her coaching practice in 2011, she spent nine years working as a high school history teacher in inner city schools in San Francisco and Oakland, CA, and three years as a school redesign consultant for the Austin, TX school districts and as a school turnaround coach for elementary principals in San Jose, CA.  She participated in a Gates-Foundation funded, Stanford University-supported school redesign from 2003-2006, which led to breakthrough results for Mission High School students' college attendance rates.

So pull up a chair, shake up a cocktail, and kick up your heels while you tune in to the refreshingly real talk about what it takes to be a functional - and fun - parent in today's wild world of raising kids.
