Carmen earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Miami and is a retired elementary school teacher. Her 31 years of teaching children from Kinder through 5th grade have given her a firsthand look at the decline in children’s behavior and respect for authority. This is largely due in part to parents who have traded leadership for relationship with their children and thus lost control of the parental reins in the family. Her passionate desire to help parents regain control of their parenting roles using biblical sound teaching have led her to become a John Rosemond Certified Leadership Parenting Coach. Carmen and her husband, Dave, live in Naples, FL.
