This training, offered in PDF format, will give you practical, effective tools and strategies to:
- Help you set limits without constant power struggles and fights
- Get better listening from your spirited child
- Help your child with daily transitions (because we know spirited kids suck at these!)
- Help you identify why your current discipline strategies may not be working (and what to do instead)
- Give you insight into WHY it's so hard for your spirited child to listen, handle transitions, and meet your limits
You can do this training at your own pace over the course of 5 days (or longer, if you prefer.) Each day there will be a written lesson and practical exercise, but they can be done anytime throughout the day or week.
It's ideal for parents of spirited kids ages 1-6.
The topics for each day are as follows:
Day 1: 3 reasons discipline isn't working
Day 2: How to confidently help your child with transitions
Day 3: 3 techniques for effectively setting limits
Day 4: How to use consequences with a spirited child
Day 5: My 4 favorite proactive discipline strategies
Here is what some of my past students have said about my past discipline classes:
"I have struggled with my spirited since birth. I have spent money on countless books and parenting classes. Holly has lived through this difficulty and has figured out what works and what doesn’t. It is worth anything to have someone who has experience to give you the tools you need to feel like a good parent." - Maddie H.
"This is my second training with Holly and found it, again, to be extremely helpful...Every time I used the information with my spirited children (yes, I have 2), I saw immediate results. Of course, every child and family is different but, we had SO many takeaways from this training to use when different situations arise that help keep me focused and calm and results in fewer, less frequent meltdowns. I can’t say enough good things. The only negative I have to say is I wish it was longer! Thanks for making me more comfortable and confident when parenting my spirited children, Holly!" -Lauren G.
"This training session has been a huge eye opener to me and how I have been contributing to the chaos in our household. I loved implementing all of the approaches and seeing my child respond so positively because there weren’t any power struggles involved and felt that we were working together. I’ve always struggled with connecting with my spirited kiddo but I feel like we’ve been getting to learn more about each other and I am truly grateful for the perspective Holly has given us!"- Shay Z.
"Life changing! I was at my wits end and felt totally clueless about how to parent my son. This training is super practical, and makes so much sense, gave me tons of ‘ahhhh’ moments, and feels like something I can really get on board with. I recommend this 100%! Gave me so much more empathy and patience for my son, understanding more about his age and stage of development, and his personality as a highly spirited boy! Feel less alone too, knowing other parents experience this with their children. Seriously the best investment I have made in a long time! Thanks Holly, you have gave me hope again ?" -Morgan J.
"Holly's training helped me find new tools to deal with my spirited child. It’s so hard to find productive ways to discipline a spirited child. It was a relief to finally have someone understand the unique needs of a spirited child and outside the box ways to deal with them." - Danna
"This was my second training with Holly so far and the information is so helpful in understanding the way my strong willed daughter thinks and acts as well as helping me learn how to respond as a parent (that’s where I struggle the most). So many useful tips that I can’t wait to try!" - Victoria B.
"After completing this training I feel as though I have more ideas to help my son. I knew some of the information, but it was explained in a way that made more sense to me. How to accomplish these positive parenting ideas to help my relationship with my son was explained to a point that it isn't so overwhelming and I believe I CAN implement this." - Elishia B.
