Q) Talk to us about your journey of becoming a parenting coach
Tiffany Brewer – It’s been two years since I started parent coaching because, before this, I was a flight attendant for nine years. When the pandemic started in 2020, I first thought there was no way I could continue flying in this environment because my son was just two years old, and then everything was coming to a halt because of that situation.
I stayed at home for two months because we had no flights, so I eventually had to take the call. My company wanted me to fly, but I wanted to quit also because I wanted to be more available to my son. Also, I didn’t want to risk being out there in an atmosphere where I could bring it to him because back then, we were so clueless about how everything was.
At that time, I started homeschooling my son, and I wanted to be more aware of how a parent should be because I had more time to do that. Now that I was available, it was more of something that helped me get equipped with information on an expert level and make wiser and well-informed decisions.
Also, I was doing the early education program at that time, so they are all very interlinked because they all come to the same purpose: raising, teaching, helping, and supporting children to be a better version of themselves. So that was how it all started.
Q) What were your major takeaways from being a part of the Cabin Crew?
Tiffany Brewer – It was life-changing ultimately; I wouldn’t have been the same person I am today if I wasn’t a flight attendant. It was nine long years, and I was the cabin crew in charge, so, for me, multitasking, taking care of things on a detail level in terms of safety, first-aid, emergency, or any other learning was very easy.
But it was one of the best turning points of my life. It has just taught me how to help people and handle situations better because that was my profession. But now, as a person, it has become second nature because I have done it for so long, and it tends to shape you up.
Q) You are an Internationally Recognized Early Educator in Pre and Primary Section. Can you tell us something about it?
Tiffany Brewer – When it comes to my degree, I wanted to do a program based on early education. So, my degree is based on all the different education concepts in terms of Montessori and others. It speaks about how important the different kinds of education are, trying to find different teaching methods because every child has a different learning capacity and strategy.
So, I wanted an internationally recognized program, not because of its legitimacy but because it would be an all incorporated holistic approach in the Pre and Primary sections. And this program is also certified and endorsed by the NCC Education UK, which is why I chose to do that.
It would be best if you were well equipped with information in your field in different spheres because when we are dealing with children, in most cases, we are not equipped with the information for some problems. So having this holistic program helped me also learn about how my child is and have opinions on other parents. Understanding how to help children is to learn things, so that is what this course is about.
Q) What do you think parents need to focus on while bringing up their children in today’s world?
Tiffany Brewer – Parents must teach them how to be humble and kind, be somebody who can fit in with anybody without keeping in mind status or society. Children should be able to be with all because nowadays, it’s more about the status factor.
Humans should always have a gut feeling like if I ride with you and if you have a nice connection, then I should be with you. If not, it’s fine; that is how it should be, not based on anything else. This is the only skill for parents, which is the most difficult one because it’s acquired.
It’s not something you teach your child; they’ll answer you. Testing them in different situations and correcting their mistakes, thereby improving them the next day, is something that they should focus on.
Q) What are the challenges you face in your work?
Tiffany Brewer – Not many challenges, but I think one of the biggest, although very small, is that I work from home because I want to be around my son more. So sometimes a challenge can be not having an office space because in this work in a home atmosphere, sometimes it can be a little challenging to think.
But then I started getting a lot of help regarding taking care of my baby when I have my meetings or seminars. For me, that is a challenge, but if I look at the other work challenges, I would be away for 10 to 12 hours a day, so this is a small thing.
If you look at it from a professional point of view, there’s no challenge. The only thing that you need to do is keep getting updated with what’s happening. You need to understand what kind of cultural background or a home atmosphere somebody is coming from. Every family raising children has a particular set of rules for raising them.
These things are essential for parenting coaches because I may come from a different part of India, and then another person comes from a different part; even though the dynamics may be pretty similar, there would be some unique household norms or values for everyone. So that’s important to make the parent comfortable to share with you. Otherwise, you have information that gives you half results.
In her concluding remarks, Tiffany Brewer stated that she would choose to be a cabin crew anyway because she meets people from different walks of life but after being a mother she is fortunate to be a Parent Coach because she gets to learn more and help others in their parenting. She aims to coach more people about effective parenting and does the same through social media.
