All you need are the right tools and insight.

Everything you could possibly need to start your new and improved, stress and guilt-free parenting journey is right here.

Breaking the Cycle is Easier Than You Think!

Screaming and yelling are simply not necessary to get your kids to listen. I promise-it’s true! In fact, while it might work here and there, it’s not a long-term solution. If it was, you wouldn’t be here. Over time, it simply leads to more trouble. Yelling louder. Yelling more often. The cycles of follow-up emotions: frustration, anger, guilt, remorse. You swear next time will be different, only to rinse and repeat.

Frustration and anger no longer have to be part of parenting. Nor does yelling or screaming. You can have a calm, cohesive, and respectful household!

The sooner you start, the sooner you’ll be free of the stress. And the sooner, you can enjoy your family life again. Why wait another minute!

Enjoy Parenting Again!

Can you imagine....

Can You Imagine

Simply asking your children to follow your requests without an argument: A chore, task, homework, setting down their phone or tablet, turning off the television?

Can You Imagine

Respectful conversations? Pleases and thank you’s! And even: “Sure, mom, what do you need?”

Can You Imagine

Coming home to a clean house? Dishes in the dishwasher or cupboards? Laundry started? Homework underway?

Can You Imagine

No more attitude, arguments, ignoring you or getting stuck with all the chores and hard work.

And with the bonus section: No more setting consequences that don’t work or can’t be enforced! No more tired, old behavioral issues that never seem to stop.

Can You Imagine

A stranger complimenting your children’s behavior at a grocery store or pediatrician’s office?

Testimonials From The Home Front 

What My Kids Have to Say

Yes!  These are my real children.  No, I did not force them, bribe them, pay them, pressure them, or anything along those lines.  I asked my kids if they’d be willing to provide an honest testimonial on how they would describe the success of my parenting skills ~ after I dedicated my efforts to improve my parenting skills, earned my certification, and put my lessons to the test in the real world.

“My mom really changed when she started working on her certification and parenting knowledge.  She became a whole different person, a better parent. I’m always asking for her classroom management advice.

Nicole Graham, 21

“My friends tell me how lucky am to have a mom who listens and supports me, even when we disagree. I have to admit she’s a great mom. I feel safe coming to her with almost anything.”
