What if I am too busy to do the exercises in the program?

When you look at the amount of time that you spend arguing, nagging, threatening or bargaining with your kids – you have to decide if that is a pattern that you want to – or should continue.

Family peace is not outside your reach and a community like this, along with the live training and support, is a game-changer for many families. They see dramatic changes in the level of cooperation and connection that they feel from their kids after implementing what they learn.

So you really just have to ask yourself – can you waste time with short-term punitive discipline and what is the cost to your relationship with your child? Are these small conflicts not that big of a deal – and not worth the time and investment of learning a new way? Balancing the long-term goals for our kids with the daily grind is always a challenge in parenting. This series will certainly require a time commitment, but it is one that will continue to reward you as your child grows.

Can I get a refund if I decide I don't like the class?

Once you complete your payment process, you will automatically begin receiving access to your materials. Our goal is to build a community of parents and professionals who are committed to changing the world for the better for our kids. ALL class purchases are final. 

If you are new to this paradigm or looking to slowly dip your toe in the conscious parenting waters - you may want to start with my monthly membership option - an affordable no-commitment solution with short video lessons and monthly group calls.

There is no one-way path to peace and I will still be here to serve you every Tuesday with another TEACHable Moment, no matter what you decide.

 Is this program for parents of toddlers or teens?

This series is geared toward parents of children of ANY AGE!  Some people find my work when their children are toddlers, usually about the time when they start to resist and say NO! - and many of my clients have older adolescents and teens! This material will help you connect more deeply with everyone in your life!

My classes involve a personal journey to self-discovery and whether your children are 2 or 22 - if you are looking to have a closer, more influential relationship - then this is the series that will address that.

We do not discuss baby routines, infant sleep or feeding, however, the communication tools and self-growth you will learn in the classes apply to families in general. They are appropriate for parents of toddlers to teens because the process of building relationships and decoding behavior is the same – no matter what age we are.

What if I do everything in the program and I still am having challenges with my child?

This program is meant to be an in-depth exploration of yourself > your goals, needs and feelings coupled with and understanding of child development - so you can work with your child's unique temperament and stage, instead of unknowingly creating more problems. The sessions and learning exercises are designed to enhance your understanding of how to effectively parent with confidence and kindness. It is not a substitute for professional help. If you feel your child’s behaviors are severe or uncontrollable, please re-consider seeking a licensed counselor before enrolling in this course.

While your kids may need extra help, if you are struggling with your own reactions and find yourself unable to stay calm and not yell - you will learn the steps to change those personal habits which have affected your ability to influence your child. Honestly, I have not had anyone implement a conscious parenting viewpoint and be worse off because of it.

I imagine it’s because my classes are not a magic-fix-all, one-sized-fits-all kind of course. It is best to take the strategies and philosophies that you learn, and then apply them, with your own creativity and personality, to the experiences with your children based on their unique stage of development, and temperament and according to your personal family values.

When you’re truly seeking to understand your child on an individual basis and looking beyond his behavior while practicing the compassionate communication tools I will show you, it’s pretty hard NOT to see real observable change in your kid’s behavior.

Is this just another parenting program that gives me a bunch of theory but doesn't really tell me how to apply it to my situation?

This program is full of actionable ideas, exercises and concrete, practical tools to use as you go through the eight sessions, including a 50+ page workbook. If you’re concerned about not understanding how to apply the strategies that you’ll learn in the course, then be sure to attend our bi-monthly bonus Q&A Support calls. On these calls, you’ll have even more time to get your questions personally answered.
