About Me and the Method
Hi, it's so lovely to meet you! My name is Ifat, and I'm a parenting coach, a wife, and a mother of two children.
But the truth is, I never planned on becoming a parenting coach. I had a very successful career as a lawyer in Israel, where I worked as a legal adviser to the Israel Women's Network and promoted rights and laws for women and working mothers. I earned my master's and doctorate degrees in law at the University of California, Berkeley. I conducted research as well as published articles about the challenges that fathers experience while combining family and work obligations. When we returned to Israel,I taught at universities and colleges all over the country.
Then, very randomly, I attended a parenting workshop that changed my life forever. I suddenly realized how much I didn't know about parenting. I felt as if a curtain was lifted, and I saw and understood things that I had never seen or understood before.
The Courageous Parenting method I developed is based on the notion that parenting is a great opportunity for personal growth and development. The method is built on five foundational concepts: Empathy, Awareness, Creativity, Humbleness, Gratitude.
