Jacqueline’s Story

She’s also the author of the upcoming book, Strong Enough to Stay: Smart Enough to Go.

At 30, Jacqueline Green, BA, was delighted to leave her corporate career in communications to become a mom. Soon though, her dreams of family bliss turned into a nightmare of overwhelm. Not only was she hit with postpartum depression, rage that left her fearing she would be an abusive mom, and debilitating, crippling perfectionism, but her marriage was rapidly disintegrating.

Like too many moms, at her lowest, she contemplated leaving the planet. She knew what a cruel legacy suicide would leave her children, and she wanted so desperately to have a great family life. She committed instead to finding solutions to her seemingly insurmountable problems.

Her message is one of profound hope, based on her personal journey, and those of thousands of parents with whom she’s worked. Her approach is mostly that of a mom who found a path to a great family life, and wants to share what worked for her. Along the way she taught the iconic How to Talk so that Kids will Listen courses, took instructor’s training and taught Active Parenting courses, and mentored briefly with Dr. Gordon Neufeld, whose best-selling book Hold on to your Kids is a must read for anyone who works with children, or was once a child and wants to understand his or her own development.

The international GPS community of tens of thousands of parents, are all committed to getting the support and information they need to be the best parent possible, while enjoying the journey.

Although Jacqueline was born in the US, you will hear from her accent that she grew up in Canada!
