Parents,

does any of this sound familiar?

  • I’m sick of fighting with my kids all the time

  • I don’t understand WHY (s)he’s behaving this way

  • My punishments are not working

  • I want to have fun as a parent

  • My kids fight and argue and whine ALL the time

  • My spouse and I are NOT on the same page

  • I can manage this, but I’m worried for this behavior to escalate…

  • I love my child, and I want to connect with them better

  • I’m having trouble juggling the individual needs of each child

 
My kids won't listen. I have to ask my kids to do something multiple times. My consequence and punishments are not working. I don't know to to help them listen. This webinar and free training on helping your kids listen will go through simple and effective strategies to get back in control without using force.

how would it feel to be a problem solving family?

I have the hack of all parent hacks for you, it’s called “function-based positive behavior support”

Research-based ✔

Practical & Effective ✔

Long-lasting ✔

ANY PARENT CAN BECOME THE PARENT THEY FEEL PROUD TO BE BY SHOWING UP, GETTING SUPPORT AND TRYING… BECAUSE POSITIVE PARENTING IS NOT INHERITED, IT'S LEARNED.

step 1.

what are they communicating with their behavior?

Often, we are missing something that our child needs… and stopping the behavior without addressing the need can be damaging and shift the challenging behavior into worse, more defiant behaviors

  • What are they trying to communicate?

  • Why are they behaving this way?

  • Do they need connection? Do they need touch?

  • what do they NEED?

Become aware of their triggers  Learn effective ways to prevent challenges  Put focus on the positive  One family I’ve worked with, had a child who was having a major meltdown every time he left his Nana’s house, no matter how many warning they gave him… he wasn’t ready to leave. This disappointment was rattling him, to the point where he’d erupt every single time. A child constantly erupting at a request that you are asking them to do… it doesn’t feel good. It hurts because you want them to be happy, but you also have to follow through with expectations. We talked about this inability to handle disappointment and put in prevention strategies…. it worked the very first time it was implemented.

step 2.

how can we prevent common challenges?

  • Become aware of their triggers

  • Learn effective ways to prevent challenges

  • Put focus on the positive

When they are doing a negative behavior, it’s because they are missing the skills to express, communicate or regulate their actual need  We will look at the best time to teach with CREATE and individualized strategies tailored to your child  I will send templates for physical supports when necessary  At a child-care center, the whole class had a lot of trouble communicating their needs without being physical. Every time I was in the classroom, I saw kids pushing, hitting, whining at each other to move out of their space. They were missing the skills they needed to problem solve. The next week, we implemented a few prevention strategies, including changing group size, making the learning times more interesting and creating clear expectations. As soon as we implemented a few supports to teach social skills and problem solving that we saw a huge difference in the culture of the classroom.

step 3.

what skills are they missing to be successful?

  • When they are doing a negative behavior, it’s because they are missing the skills to express, communicate or regulate their actual need

  • We will look at the best time to teach with CREATE and individualized strategies tailored to your child

  • I will send templates for physical supports when necessary

step 4. we respond differently  This is where we take out the yelling, the spanking, the time-outs, the empty threats  We talk about logical consequences — relatable, respectful and reasonable  Follow through with a consequence without feeling guilty  Learn how to set expectations that are enforceable

step 4.

how can we respond effectively?

  • This is where we take out the yelling, the spanking, the time-outs, the empty threats

  • We talk about logical consequences — relatable, respectful and reasonable

  • Follow through with a consequence without feeling guilty

  • Learn how to set expectations that are enforceable

Any parent can become the parent they feel proud to be by showing up, getting support and trying… because Positive Parenting is not inherited, it's learned.

Let’s make a plan specific to your child and your needs

“I’m a bad parent for needing help“  FAKE NEWS. FAKE NEWS. FAKE NEWS.  Parent coaching actually tells me that you are an AMAZING parent. The parents and teachers who receive coaching actually do their very best, and know they can’t do it all alone. This is ADVANCED level parenting/teaching.

there are no “bad“ kids.  Children with challenging behavior can be disruptive to optimal functioning at school and at home. Children who are having a hard time staying focused in school, or entering play with new friends may end up in trouble. Teachers may even suggest the child needs to be tested, seek professional counseling or medication.   There is a place for all these things! However, sometimes we are missing small things that are impacting our children in HUGE ways.
