Hi I'm Terry Manrique an Expert Parent & Relationship Coach with 25+ years of experience in the field of Early Childhood Education. After working 17 years as a teacher and Program Director at a private, arts-integrated early childhood education center, I decided to start my business in April 2011 coaching families in their homes. as a successful owner of Working with Parents®, LLC, I helped countless families across the United States improve and transform their relationships using my C.P.R. for Parents® philosophy, a variety of parenting methods, and proven behavior management practices.
I'm an author of Revive Your Parenting, C.P.R. for Parents®, A Philosophy based on Compassion, Patience, and Respect and Change Your Perspective, Improve Your Parenting. My experience has allowed me to… provide parents with a crash course in Early Childhood Development, help parents better understand how their children think, and empowered them to be empathetic to what their child’s needs are. Understanding your child and knowing WHY they behave the way they do can eliminate the frustration many parents face.
I am a Gottman Certified Educator, Certified by Tony Robbins Team in Strategic Intervention-Relationship Coaching and Certified in Early Childhood Education. I continue to enrich my studies by keeping up-to-date with the ever-changing needs of children.
I also received my National Administrator Credential and trains Early Childhood teachers and parents on how to help children manage their emotions using my progressive techniques.
I conduct seminars for parents, teachers, colleges, and speaks for various organizations. I have built a working relationship with several physicians and schools in Columbus, Ohio, and the Chicagoland area.
