Get Yourself Grounded.

 I know, I know. This holiday season is gonna be a bear but we can get through it by building our coping tools, which is why I’m offering my Grounding Course as a FREE email workshop.

Grounding is a tool to help us regulate our minds and our bodies when we feel overwhelmed or checked out. If you feel like your emotions are going to run away with you or if you can’t focus and feel disconnected, grounding will bring you back to center. 

When you sign up for the Grounding Course you’ll get seven daily easy and immediately useful lessons straight to your inbox!

When you're about to lose it.

When anger or frustration is about to take over, Grounding Tools will bring you back to calm.

When you can't remember what's next.

When you feel disconnected from real life, Grounding Tools center you in the here and now.

When things feel intolerable.

When it’s all too much, Grounding Tools give you the space and energy to cope.

About Me, Dawn

2020biopic
Dawn Friedman MSEd

I love working with parents. Especially struggling parents.

I’ve been working with families for the past thirty years. I’ve been a preschool teacher, a childcare site director, a parenting educator, a college course instructor, a family case manager, an editor at a national parenting magazine, and a counselor in private practice working with parents and kids.

I love working with parents who are having a hard time and care deeply about our struggles, our challenges, our good efforts, and our shining successes. I know we do best when we have supportive community especially when we’re working hard to break family cycles of dysfunction. I built this site because it’s what I would have wanted when my (now 16 and 23 year old) children were younger. Someplace where I could safely figure out what kind of mother *I* wanted to be, not advice that didn’t fit or feel good. I wanted friendships with like-minded parents who understood where I was coming from. I wanted information based in research, not opinion. 

And that’s how why I built YouAreNotYourMother.com.
