Most of have a pretty good idea of the discipline strategies we’d like to use.
But what do you do when you’re following all the experts' “rules”, or a particular parenting style (positive discipline, attachment parenting, RIE, gentle parenting, authoritative parenting, etc., etc., etc.) and still feel like it’s just barely working (or not working at all)?
Or what if you have older kids, and the stuff you did with them just isn’t working for your spirited child? (This was definitely my experience…I thought I was SUCH a good mom and had everything figured…until #2 came along).
In this 10-day training, we’re going to work on learning and practicing practical and effective discipline strategies for our spirited kids.
Each day, you'll receive the lesson in your email inbox at 6AM local time. You can follow along in your printable workbook, and come upload your answers or worksheet to our private Facebook group to get feedback or ask for help.
The training will include lots of hands-on, practical strategies you can use to help you manage your own reactions to your child (this is so hard, but is key!), set limits in a way that doesn’t trigger meltdowns, and help your child meet the limits you’ve set…all while helping you build a stronger, closer relationship with your child.

To get the most out of this training, be prepared to spend approximately 20-30 minutes per day reading the lesson, practicing the strategy, and reporting back in the group. However, please note that this 30-minutes can happen at any time of the day, so this is doable even if you work full-time or can’t commit to a specific time of day.
Once registered, you can expect to receive a welcome email immediately, and your Day 1 lesson within 10 minutes (the rest of the lessons will be delivered each day after today at 6AM).

Here's what some of my students have had to say about the training:
"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.
"This is my second training with Holly and found it, again, to be extremely helpful. There’s a nice range of topics covered relating to not only understanding your spirited child but understanding how we as parents react and address these behaviors. She’s thorough and everything is very easy to understand and implement. 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.
"I pride myself in connective parenting, but parenting a spirited child takes the cake. Holly managed to address, prior to asking, everything I've been struggling with. Honestly I don't know how she does it except for the fact she's been in our shoes. So, not only does her course offer guidance and her scholarly background gift us wisdom, her personal experience is what speaks volumes to the challenges of what we deal with on a daily basis. It's been monumental of a shift that our whole family needed. So much gratitude". - The Wishstar family
"The training with Holly was fantastic. I feel like she really understands the essence of what it means to raise a spirited child and the struggles we go through on a daily basis. Her training was easy to follow along and organised in a very comprehensible manner. I had read a lot about raising a spirited child already but it felt like she just beautifully condensed all the overwhelming and sometimes confusing information and made it more accessible that way. The "homework" tasks were applicable and there was enough time and opportunity to ask questions or clarify new situations we had run into. After 10 days, I really feel it's made a difference already in our family. Thank you, Holly! "
"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
I look forward to taking this journey with you!
