The time is now…

After this year and a half, I’ve had time to reflect and regroup.

I’ve always known that parents really want what is best for their children. Yet, no one prepares us for the enormity of the role.

There is no guidebook, no road map, nothing. I’ve come to understand that the reason why is that there are many, many right ways to bring up children – not just one way. As long as you understand some basic concepts of behavior and your own child’s personality.

I was a pediatrician before I became a mother, and parenting pales in comparison. Having a child is the most challenging role that you will ever have. Parenting will make you grow from the inside out.

Yet there are many many resources to understand and become educated when it comes to parenting – Time is tight, but the benefits are huge.

So it is time to get started and introduce:

Understanding Healthy Parenting for the Millennial Family 

The Experience of a

Seasoned Pediatrician

After so many years of primary care practice in pediatrics, I’ve seen many versions of the family unit.  We all wants what is best for our children.  Let’s work together.

A Community of like-minded Parents

There are many like-minded parents who are committed and willing to share. Let ME be part of your village. We can share and exchange information instead of having to scrounge the internet.

Online Masterclass

Understanding parenting takes time and knowledge But it can be so much fun learning who children think, react and behave. We’ll have quick videos with basic best practices information regarding normal childhood/tween development.

Every other life skill comes with education and practice except the most important and valuable one!


Parenting is not always what we thought it would be. The ups and downs, the sleepless nights, the “what ifs?” and the when to worry, when NOT to worry.

In addition to all of this, the enormity of information is overwhelming! Whom to believe, where to start?

Am I going to harm my child? What kind of adult will they become. Can I have any control over this or is it all luck?

Dr. de Freitas will share monthly a series of parenting tips.  Treasured tips collected after many many years of being a pediatrician.
