The Connected Family | Busy Moms, Healthy Families

Do you feel disconnected from your family? Do you feel like you are just going thru the motions?

Do you want more connection with your family? Do you want your children to feel more loved, heard and understood?

Do you find that you often run out of patience with them? Do you question whether or not you are getting through to them? Do you sometimes wonder if you are doing a good job as a parent? You are not alone. The Connected Family Program I developed was created because I felt just that way and heard countless stories from patients who also felt that way. My Connected Family Program will help you to identify the best ways to praise, reprimand, communicate with and organize your household… all in a way that will help you show the love you have for each person in your family.

You’ll find tools and information to help you understand the unique personality, needs and communication styles of the ones you love and how to use that knowledge to develop deeper communication and connections.

The Connected Family

Does your family suffer from some or all of these?

  • Digitally distracted
  • A sense of entitlement rather than responsibility
  • Inadequate sleep and unbalanced nutrition
  • Sedentary indoor lifestyle
  • Endless stimulation, technological babysitters, instant gratification, and absence of dull moments

Do you find that your children just are not listening to you?
Do you feel like your children just don’t hear you? Or you are not getting through to them?
Are you frustrated with your children? Do you lack patience?
Do you wish for a greater connection with your kids?
Do you wish you could say something to your family and they would just “get it” without having to keep nagging or explaining?
Are you tired of being second to the remote or their phone?

You are not alone! I get you!

I am Dr. Michelle Dickie and I have talked with many moms and parents that feel that way, including myself. But, the good news is, it does not have to be that way.

Several years ago I was introduced to personality testing for my practice. I loved it and became certified in DISC assessments. So, what did I do? Naturally put my entire family through the testing. What I discovered changed my thought pattern and gave me a new perspective that drastically improved how I communicated with my family.

I found out that all 4 of my children and my husband were the complete opposite of me with respect to their personality traits. At first I was shocked and disappointed. In all of my efforts to be the best mom and wife, I felt like I was failing. I discovered I was not giving them what they needed. I was giving them what I needed.

We often treat our children or partner, as we want to be treated, instead of how they want to be treated. As parents, we often assume that what worked for us will work for our children. If they do it our way, it will all work out.

The problem is; THIS DOES NOT WORK! We have to adjust our parenting/communication to meet the needs of our children/partner. By doing this, we can create deeper connections within our family and develop children that feel like we understand them and are meeting their needs. So, I unscrambled my family and we connected. I indentified what they needed to feel loved, heard and connected. And, isn’t that what we are all looking for?

Now, I am on a mission to help other families create greater connection and ease in their communication.

Using my experience as a mom and health practitioner, I have created a program that will help you identify the best ways to praise, reprimand, talk to, and organize your household, all in way that will help you show your love for each INDIVIDUAL person. It may even help you let go a bit more and regain some patience.

Sometimes all it takes to make a shift , is an outside perspective from someone who has been there. The Connected Family Program is specifically designed to reconnect busy families, and to create a more cohesive and functional unit that allows a gateway for you to be the loving parent and partner you want to be.
