Hey there! I’m Merrit, a Gentle Parenting coach passionate about helping toddler moms calm the chaos while building connection with their littles. I’m also a wife, and mama to my 3 year old daughter and a baby boy on the way! I love sharing all that I’ve learned on this motherhood journey to help others find the joy in raising their toddlers again.
As far as my background, I have a degree in psychology with a focus on child development, which is where I learned a lot of the child development and mental health information that is so critical for gentle parenting.
But my main reason for becoming so invested in learning everything I can about gentle parenting came from my desire to be the best parent for my children. I have always felt that being a mother was my true purpose in my life, and as an enneagram 5 and self labeled avid researcher, I wanted to know everything I could to give my children the best start possible. I also place a high importance on building a strong and trusting relationship with each of my children.
The more I learned, and then when I experienced first hand all the benefits of implementing Gentle Parenting while raising my daughter, I knew I wanted to help other moms achieve the same ? I know how overwhelming it can be to want a better way of parenting, but not really knowing where to begin.
That’s when Gentle Parenting Littles was born! I started sharing what I learned about this parenting style on social media, and eventually compiled everything I know into an all-inclusive digital course and coaching program. I hope GPL can help you achieve all your parenting goals, and become the mom of your dreams!
