Parent Coaching for Parents of "Spirited" & Strong-Willed Kids

If you have a spirited child, you've probably already figured out that many of the normal parenting and discipline strategies just aren’t working for you…or for your child.

You may find that traditional strategies like time-outs or taking away privileges may not only be ineffective, but may even lead to long, intense meltdowns or other BIG displays of feelings.

This can lead you to feel guilty, resentful, frustrated, and like you're doing something wrong. You’ve heard other parents have great success with these strategies; so why aren’t they working for you?

I want to help you make positive parenting work for your spirited child. Positive discipline techniques are amazing, but sometimes we need to tweak them to make them work for our spirited or strong-willed kids.

This is what you’ll learn through my coaching and my classes. All my lessons, strategies and exercises are designed to help you not only learn effective techniques, but to practice them and make them part of your everyday life.

I would love to help you get more peace in your home, and enjoy your child more.

Please look around the site to see what programs, classes or coaching opportunist are currently available. These change frequently, so check back often!
