Stress directly affects blood sugar. Unfortunately, we can't eliminate all stress - like when we have kids - but the right tools can reduce it.

How Kids Raise Our Blood Sugar
Being a mom means that one of our biggest stressors is our children that give us so much life and purpose, but simultaneously drain our energy and make us consider running away from home.
Between tantrums, attention seeking, power struggles, attitudes, and more, stress levels are bound to elevate.
Well, guess what stress is directly related to.....blood sugar!
It's simple math:
kids (stress) + gestational diabetes (stress) = elevated blood sugars
Increased stress means higher blood sugars.
That's why I want to tell you how Positive Parenting Solutions significantly lowered my stress and anxiety in 4 days!
The 2020 Pandemic
*cue dramatic sound effect*
Before the pandemic I was struggling with many things, being a single mom to my headstrong 3 and 2 year-olds. Then the pandemic bomb dropped and we were at home all day, every day.
I saw a Facebook ad about how to get your kids to listen without yelling. The ad lady promised to give me a tool during the webinar that would immediately change my kids' behavior.
Um, yes please! (She also said other things about parenting that I agreed with.)
I signed up, knowing it was one of those "I'll give you a bite, then sell you the whole pie" webinars.
BEST WEBINAR EVER!
She delivered on her promise, plus more, and really taught me the "why" behind it all in just 90 minutes.
I was thankful, impressed, and hungry for more so I bought the program, and I was so grateful that it was reasonably priced.
The program was exceptional - by far the best structured program I'd ever gone through.
It was easy to implement the strategies, and in just 4 days of implementing the first strategy I realized all of our stress levels had gone down, as well as the noise level!
It has helped us so much that I regularly mention the program and strategies to family and friends (like the person who can't shut up about the things they love).
A mom in a private Facebook group I'm a part of asked for help and she mentioned similar struggles to mine. This was my response to her.
I don't want to be that person who offers unsolicited parenting advice, but I HIGHLY recommend you look into the program and see if it aligns with your values. The strategies are so valuable, no matter how old your child is.
It can be a much needed stress/blood sugar reducer during this time.
