Michelle MacManus Runnells

Tell us about you! (who you are and what you do)

Hi! I’m a parenting expert and life coach. I’ve spent over 15 years helping women and men thrive as parents. When childhood ends, our parenting must change, but there were no parenting tools, techniques, and perspectives to help parents thrive and connect through adolescence and early adulthood! Parenting-daughters helps parents understand and overcome the challenges of parenting emerging adults and become the guides and mentors our kids need.

What would your clients say about you and your business?

“When I began working with Michelle, I just wanted my daughter to stop being awful! I never imagined that the changes I made could create peace and bring us closer. When I first started working with Michelle, I was convinced that my daughter was malfunctioning.! I blamed myself for messing her up and then I’d blame her for choosing to be awful. Looking back, it’s funny. Today, I realize that my daughter wanted to know me all along and I’d forgotten who I was… I didn’t think I had anything to offer her as another adult woman. Remembering this hurts my heart. I focused on monitoring her and trying to control her like she was still a child. She would challenge me and I didn’t know how to draw and enforce boundaries comfortably so we would fight. I took everything personally and I felt like a failure. Today, I am so comfortable and confident with myself and my parenting. My daughter listens to me because she knows I’m not dictating to her like she’s a child. When she disagrees we talk about it. I can listen because I have no problem deciding to stick to my guns or change my mind. I used to get so confused and overwhelmed. I just can’t say enough about how my life has changed. I have so much joy in my life now because of my relationship with my daughter. I couldn’t have said that before and I know that if she has just stopped “annoying” me, we would never have become this close. I am so grateful to Michelle for my transformation.” A.B.R.
