About the Author

Natalie Cabinda

Natalie Cabinda's primary mission is to share strategies that will enable broken families to rebuild after a divorce, so that they can exploit their potential to the fullest as they re-structure their lives.

Most of these strategies are drawn from more than 18 years of teaching high school and college students, interacting with parents and students from divorced families, school counselors, members of child study teams, and from her personal experience as a divorced mother of three.

In her opinion, divorce has the uncanny ability to destabilize most families, especially families with children, forcing many children to struggle academically or become delinquent in certain cases. Single parents, particularly mothers who have been out of the work force for many years, are strained to the point of being unable to bounce back.

Ms. Cabinda intends to arm such fragile families with strategies that will enable them to help themselves and their children to reach their maximum potential socially, academically, and professionally.

Natalie Cabinda is available to speak at schools, colleges, churches, and conferences.

Philosophy


“Parenting is tough, and single parenting is even tougher, but with patience, sacrifice, and great comunication skils, the job of any parent is simplified.”

“The light from a parent often radiates to the child Shine so that your children will shine as well.”

“It takes a village to raise a child, so don’t be afraid to reach out for the support you need from others.”

Public Speaking


Ms. Cabinda has taught English, French, and ESL at various high schools, middle schools, and colleges around the country. This has given her experience teaching and mentoring children of all ages through the dynamic challenges of adolescence and young adulthood. By nature of her position Ms. Cabinda has also worked with parents from diverse backgrounds and circumstances, offering advice that would further benefit their children within and outside of the school environment. She attributes her passion and enthusiasm for working with children and their parents to a higher power. Her experience in overcoming a challenging divorce in her own life has motivated Ms. Cabinda to reach out to families weakened by divorce to show them that divorce is not the end, but rather the beginning of a new journey. She is positive, outgoing, humble, and enjoys making others laugh. Her greatest joy comes from improving the lives of others. Ms. Cabinda is determined to make an impact on the fragile lives of divorcees, and to repair each broken home, one family at a time.
Available for conferences and other speaking engagements. For more information, contact me.

The “Learned Helplessness Syndrome”

13694190_1151463644923444_1192785393_o (1) I have observed a very disturbing trend among older, school age children. Perhaps you've observed this too or maybe not. You don’t have to agree with me if you haven't observed this, but understand that I’m not only expressing what I’ve witnessed but also echoing the voices of other teachers and parents. We have a problem; we are raising children who seem too willing to accept mediocrity, and a possible explanation for this could be a theory psychologists are still working on, a theory called “Learned Helplessness.” Whether we admit it or not

God is the Heroic in us.

20955163294_76a30cfeb9_o   God is that HOPE  we all nurse in our hearts for a better future for ourselves, our families, and our friends; God is the hope for  progressive careers, better politicians, eradication of prejudice or racism, peace for all nations, and a future we all believe in. Most importantly, God is the hero in those who have performed heroic deeds, past or present, irrespective of their race or religion; God is the hero in Jesus, Mohammed, Ghandhi, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jr. Joan of Arc, etc. God is the hero in all of us e

Be the Change You’d Like to See

          slide4_cover     Last weekend we had a blizzard which dumped about 33 inches of snow on us. I remember tweeting that someone needed to come up with an invention that could quickly melt the mountains of snow that we had shoveled from our driveways, decks and sidewalks because even after redistributing it, we still lacked space. It was the biggest snow storm we’d experienced in several years. That morning, my two daughters and I embarked on the shoveling ordeal, and it would be a couple of hours before the driveway regained some semblance of normalcy. Despite our achi
