Rachel Bailey: Parenting & Relationship Educator
Please tell us about your magical healing powers.
I help parents feel better about the way they parent by teaching respect-based strategies for managing children’s frustrating behavior & strong emotions. I work with parents to bring more calm and connection into their homes so they can worry less about their kids and enjoy them more.
Tell us about your home team.
I have two fun-loving daughters (4 and 1 1/2) and an amazingly supportive husband. We live and love in Arcola, Virginia, a suburb of DC in Northern Virginia.
Besides your work, what else are you passionate about?
I am passionate about teaching the concepts of empathy and compassion to as many people — in as many ways — as possible. I think that if we can learn to be kind to ourselves and to others, and the world will be a different place.
How do you take care of yourself?
I take 10-minute self-care breaks where I do something that will FILL my energy bank! I also try to practice gratitude as much as possible.
Is there anything else you’d like to share with us about your work?
I’d just love to be able to provide hope and tools for parents who are struggling. I want to teach them that it is possible to feel good about raising responsible, confident kids – even in today’s world!
Do you have a favorite inspirational quote?
“The way we speak to our children becomes their inner voice.”
Where can we find you?
