I thought once I had kids, parenting would come naturally. The love part did. The rest of it, I needed some help with.

I had no idea parenting was something you could LEARN.

We Each Have a Story

We all come to parenting from our own unique perspective and with our own stories. I hope you'll read mine, and then, if you like, you can tell me yours. We're all in this together. 



Practical, tactical change from Day ONE. A specific set of counter intuitive tools you'd never think to do, but once you learn why and what, you'll be so happy you have them.

"With help from Abigail our child is stronger, calmer, more compassionate, and clearly happier. And so are we!"

P.F. - Dad of One


What will YOUR letter say?

So THEY can...

+ be more emotionally flexible + find their own resilience and grit + move beyond stuck fears + use challenges to become smarter and stronger + love their siblings + stop aggressive behaviors like hitting and biting + handle transitions better + put their own shoes on + do their homework + navigate friendships and resist peer pressure + manage chores + and even leave the house on time! :)

So YOU can...

+ tap directly into your child's inherent goodness and ACTIVATE it + create a bond with your children that lasts for life + be a safe trusted adult in their life + handle a tantrum with confidence + set effective limits WITHOUT ANGER + inspire great sibling relationships + keep your cool, even when things are tough + be a strong and benevolent leader + earn their respect, and with that the ability to truly guide them + and even leave the house on time! :)

Whether your child is 2 or 12, chances are they've got BIG feelings, and those feelings matter, because they are the roadmap for their soul.

You're a good and loving parent, but sometimes...

You're slammed with work, the dog ate your kid's guitar, and you forgot to buy toilet paper today.*

(*Or maybe, like us, your kid just had heart surgery...) 

And somehow you still have to deal with all THEIR big feelings.

Real Parenting Challenges. Real Life Solutions.

Science Based

You've got a brain. And so do your kids. This is your chance to get to know it and how it works. Once you know the basic neuroscience behind why we (and they) flip out - it's easier to learn how NOT to.

I share with you the work of Patty Wipfler, Dr. Dan Siegel, and Dr. Gordon Neufeld (among others) in an easy to understand way. Then I synthesize it all into practical action for you.

Here's the Thing

You are doing an incredibly hard job under what can often be very challenging circumstances and YOU DESERVE SUPPORT. You get no pay, no societal recognition, no time off. What do you say we at least make this feel good, huh? :)
