Trailer: Introduction to The Mommy Whisperer
Hello, all you moms out there and welcome to The Mommy Whisperer podcast. My name is Heather Anderson, and I call myself The Mommy Whisperer.
I am first and foremost the mother of 4 wonderful children from my first marriage, and 6 bonus children and so far 7 grandchildren from my second and current and final marriage.
Being a mother has been the most rewarding and the most challenging part of my life. I have spent years reading and studying how to raise these kids well, and the best parenting practices and household management skills to use along the way.
I am also an educator and I have my Master’s Degree in education. For 23 years I have taught in the public school and then when I had my 2nd child I started a private in-home preschool called Miss Heather’s Preschool. I absolutely love teaching. I have taught hundreds of children throughout the years, and I have kind of developed this reputation for being able to shape even the most challenging children’s behaviours.
Parents have said that they hardly recognize their child anymore after coming to my school. They’ve been so pleasant around the house and so obedient. I have been able to work with hundreds of kids for thousands of hours and I am passionate about shaping children’s behaviors.
And I also discovered along the way that I love human psychology and human behavior. I love figuring out how to tweak little things here and there to get the results that are wanted. I also love to see what’s working and what’s not and to experiment with different methods and philosophies. Human behavior is truly such a passion of mine. I eat, drink, and breathe this stuff.
For the past few years I’ve also been a teacher through a charter school that supports independent study or homeschooled children and their families. This has helped me to become somewhat of an expert in the areas of homeschooling and different curriculum and the different approaches out there. I have really enjoyed working with these families.
I am also a music teacher. I currently teach a music program to beginning, young musicians called Let’s Play Music. I’ll tell you more about this program on an episode coming up for those of you who might want to find a teacher in your area for your child or even some of you musical moms out there who might be looking for a side-gig… it is a really amazing program.
And I am also a Life Coach who specializes in parenting, motherhood, relationships, and homeschooling. Working with moms and coaching moms is probably my most favorite thing I do. I have developed a coaching system that takes mom through an amazing process that helps them develop self-love and acceptance, build their parenting tool kit, and figure out what their dreams are for their family and how to accomplish those things.
So… what is a Mommy Whisperer, you might ask? Well, I am here to give you the boost and support you need. I’m in the background cheering you on and helping you be the rock star mom that you were meant to be (and you probably already are but just don’t realize it yet). And I’m hoping you will listen to my podcast each week because I’m really hoping it will help you become a lot more confident in your parenting and a lot more peaceful in your home.
In my early years of motherhood, I would always listen to Dr. Laura. For those of you who don’t know who she is. She had a radio talk show on AM 640 and now she has a podcast. She is very opinionated about mothering and relationships and how we should be doing things. And some of her opinions might rub some people wrong. But I got quite a kick out of her. And I just remember thinking, as I listened to her pretty much every day, that I really wanted…Needed…to talk to her.
I even called into the radio program quite a few times but never was able to get through. I wanted to tell her my ideas with parenting my kids or dealing with my difficult previous relationship. I needed someone to tell me that, either my thinking and parenting was good and to keep going, or that I’m a little off and how to figure things out and where adjustments might need to be made. I needed to know if I was maybe overreacting with my kids or if the battles I was choosing to fight really did need to be fought.
I needed someone experienced who had been where I was and who could answer all of my parenting and relationship questions that were really really important to me. Because kids don’t come with user manuals. And most of us are just trying to figure it out as we go along and hope that we don’t mess our kids up too much along the way.
And that’s why I’m here. I’m hoping I can help you figure out solutions to the questions and issues that you’re having. I want to be that for you. I want to help you figure things out. Together we can find answers to your simplest and most challenging parenting and relationship dilemmas.
This podcast has been in the making for 5 years! And I am so excited to finally be here with all of you. On this podcast, we will talk about all things motherhood, and how to create happiness, confidence, and more fulfillment in our lives.
We will talk about a ton of parenting tips, tricks, strategies, and ideas to really build up your parenting tool kit. We will talk about finding yourself as a woman, not only just as a mom, and figuring yourself out and really cleaning up your thinking about your life and work towards self-actualization. We will talk about relationships because I truly believe that good relationships, whether it’s with your significant other, your children, your family, your in-laws, your friends, seems to be the key to our own happiness. They play such an important role in our mental health. Increased life satisfaction and happiness is a result of being part of positive relationships. And we will also talk about home management and all the things that come with effectively running a household. I invite you to tune in each week so you will be able to see the beauty of inviting The Mommy Whisperer into your life and feel the love and support in your motherhood journey.
I can’t wait for our journey ahead and to help make your life easier, less stressful, and more happy and fulfilled. So put all your mommy worries aside.
Let’s do this!
