LONG BIO:

Tosha Schore, M.A, is a sought after coach, author, educator, and speaker. She is the mother of three boys, and an advocate for boys and their families worldwide. Schore is committed to creating lasting change in families and in the world by supporting parents to care for themselves, connect with their boys deeply, set limits lovingly, and play wildly.

Schore has drawn upon her multi-disciplinary background in gender studies, linguistics and neurobiology, and adult and parent education, and has followed her heart to find her life’s work.

PRAISE

Working with Tosha has been nothing short of life altering. Sounds crazy, I know. But when your two little boys drive you absolutely mad and you have no idea what is wrong with them (or with you), life can be tough. I used to think “what on earth do I do now??” These boys are too busy, too intense, too violent, way too emotional. They are just too much. And now I know.  Honestly, truly know that my boys are good.  I am good. I know why they do what they do, and what they need when they do it.

Tosha can hold space for you like no one I’ve ever met can do. There is so much love and compassion and support from her, that it’s hard to put into words. I don’t know how she does that over the phone. But she does. And that whole life altering thing?  It’s just like magic. You get off the phone and go back home – and everything shifts. A hard moment comes up – and you think – “I got this” – I know exactly what to do. You’ve been filled up somehow, and you can respond in a way that feels good to everyone. And then life is better. For you, for your kids. And there are more smiles, and more play and more of everyone feeling good. All from some phone calls with Tosha. – Jalayne, U.S.A.

Tosha has been a great support for our family. Raising children is challenging, and Tosha has helped keep us on track with supporting our children in ways that have proven to be effective in sustaining positive interaction. Whether it was distress our children have felt over homework, sports, friends or family, Tosha’s warm, caring style has helped us to make strides in communication with and support of our elementary-school aged kids. We’re fortunate to have connected with Tosha and would recommend her guidance to any parents raising young children. – Dad, U.S.A.

Your presence and insight have had such a positive impact on me. You also have provided a model of a powerful, clear, vulnerable, wise, present woman that I so needed at this time. It has been a huge part of the journey to finding myself that has occurred and I will always remember how you helped me. – Roma, U.K.
