Calm and Connected:
Creating a Peaceful Home Through Positive Discipline
Parenting is Hard
I see you trying. You want to be more connected as a family and stop yelling at your kids. You start each day promising yourself that today will be different- you won't explode when things get tough. Yet somehow, in spite of your genuine intentions, you seem to fall back into the familiar cycle of calmly asking them to do something, patiently asking again, and then losing it when they have ignored you for the hundredth time.

That finally gets their attention, but you can see the fear and sadness, or maybe even anger, in their eyes.

Then the guilt sets in. Sigh

It hurts to see our kids hurting and it's not what any of us want.

The good news is that there is hope!

Many families, including mine, have broken the cycle and learned to use tools and strategies that encourage cooperation while still maintaining a strong connection.

We have found a way to create peace in our homes, and really enjoy our kids.

You can have that, too!

Imagine what it will feel like when your kids willingly do what you've asked...the first time.

Know what to do when they aren't listening

Feel confident in your parenting
Reduce conflict and power struggles
Empower them to be confident and kind
Stay calm when you feel like exploding
Understand what is beneath their behavior
Set limits they will respect, without yelling

Solve sibling conflict without fighting

Get them to help with chores (really!)
Use challenges to teach them skills that they can use throughout their life
I'm with you!

We all imagine how parenting is going to be before we have kids.

Instant connection, lots of laughing. All joy, all the time.

At least, that is what I thought. I didn't realize how much my own "stuff" would get in the way of my ability to be the parent I knew I could be. There was so much yelling. Fear and self-down were constant companions as well.

And then I discovered positive parenting. That's when things changed and I started the journey toward becoming a parent I am proud to be.

You can experience a transformation also.

As a licensed therapist, parent coach (and recovering yeller!) I can help you become the parent you want to be.

Here is what other parents have to say:
"This class really helped me stop and listen to what I was actually saying to my kids.  It just gave me more awareness and insight into my own behavior and how that might, in turn, effect the behavior my kids exhibit in return.  Acknowledging and reflecting their emotions back to them has been a very useful and effective skill." 
~Mother of 2 boys, ages 5 & 7
"I LOVED this course! It was eye opening about the small changes I needed to make to have a more positive parenting experience and not constantly feel defeated.  This course gave me words to use, taught me how to listen & respond and gave me usable tools to use in day to day parenting - not only when I felt like flipping my lid.  I recommend this course to ALL parents, regardless of how much or little you feel like you have this parenting thing figured out."  ~Mother of 3 children, ages 2, 6, 9
