Hi! I’m Eran Katz, and I want to help you feel better about your parenting.
Are you struggling with day-to-day parenting?
Have you ever found yourself shouting at your kids while simultaneously wondering “what am I doing?”
Did you ever mutter to yourself “Oh no I’m becoming my Father?”
If so, I have a feeling we’re gonna get along just fine.
But first, let me introduce myself
As I’ve said, my name is Eran (pronounced “Eh-Run”). I’m a Clinical Psychologist from Israel, where I live with my lovely wife and two adorable (though nerve-wrecking at times) kids. I consider myself a family man and being a parent is actually one of the most important and meaningful things in my life. In my work as a psychologist I deal a lot with parenting issues and working with parents is a favorite of mine. That's because I believe that raising kids is one of the most amazing things a person can do. A role that gives so much to so many – your child and yourself at first but also the rest of your family and environment.
Now, I know what you’re thinking, and I’ll be the first one to admit: It’s also a really tough job.
Let me share a story with you. I know myself to be quite cool (not Fonzie cool, the “not getting too worked up” cool). When my first child was born, I immediately fell in love with this cute little thing. Of course, it wasn't all fun and joy. We had to learn how to handle a baby, get by with less sleep and adjust ourselves to new roles. But all in all we felt good with our parenting. And then we hit The Terrible Twos (such a deceitful name, by the way). Suddenly, this cute thing was becoming a menace. Still cute, still funny, but boy, was I lost with him.
One day, as he was jumping up and down on the sofa – even though I repeatedly told him not to – I suddenly lost it. Something grew in my belly and this huge bellow came out of me: “JUST STOP IT! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?”
Then I grabbed him by the arms and hauled him into his room.
And I immediately felt like shit. Thoughts were running through my head as I watched his little face wrinkle in insult: “What’s wrong with me? Where did this rage even come from? Did I just traumatize my boy?”
I bet you feel like that too sometimes.
I knew that I’m at least an okay parent. I knew I had my heart at the right place. And I knew that I just lost it. Fortunately, I was able to gather myself, calm down and set things right with him. That’s where my knowledge and experience as a Child Psychologist with a special knack to Attachment Theory came into fruition.
Now I want to share that with you. My goal is to help your family have a thriving, meaningful and happy relationship.

Get Your Parenting Values course for free
I want to help you find your way as a parent. That's why I created Your Parenting Values – a short email course that will teach you about leading a committed, value-based parenting, which is the answer to the question “How do I navigate as a parent in today's confusing world?”The course offers a simple yet powerful way of thinking about what is important for you as a parent, via the concept of Values. This concept is derived from ACT, which stands for Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. ACT is one of my go-to models in my work as a Clinical Psychologist working with parents, because it helps parents figure out what is important for them and find practical ways to have a more meaningful life.
