Sound Familiar?

Overloaded With Daily Obligations?

Feeling overwhelmed? Exhausted? Struggling to navigate it all?

Do you feel like no matter how hard you try, you can never quite manage to meet everyone's needs and expectations?

Do you dream of having an hour to unwind, when you rarely have a single moment for yourself? Wondering how everyone else seems to have it all together?

Tired of Tantrums, Arguments & Attitudes From Your Kids?

Do your kids ignore you? Argue or tantrum until they get their way? 

You’ve tried everything. Rewards. Stickers. Chore Charts. Simple requests. Repeated requests. Nagging. Consequences. Consequences on top of consequences

But getting your kids to actually comply makes discipline even more stressful. And when you finally do get a consequence to work, it doesn't take long before your kids are right back to the initial behavior that started it all.

Sometimes the hardest part is coming up with a consequence in the first place. One that is effective, enforceable, and doesn't come with a battle!

All of your efforts to manage behavior is often more exhausting than the behavior itself! It's almost easier to just give in and do it yourself!

Frustrated By Your Own Shocking Outbursts?

Do you you manage to keep your cool throughout the busy day or week only to lose it unexpectedly?

You're tired. Exhausted really, and there's still so much to do. When you ask for help...that's when it starts. The tantrums, the attitude, the arguments...or you get ignored! And who gets stuck with the clean up? Who gets pulled right in?

We all know where this ends. The blowup! Yelling. Arguing. Saying things you don't mean. Setting consequences that not only don't seem to work, but make you feel bad! It doesn't take long for the guilt to set in and the silent promises to keep it together next time. Sure enough, you find yourself repeating the same pattern. Over and over.

Struggling To Parent On the Same Page?

Tired of arguing with you spouse or co-parent over parenting? Do you find yourself constantly disagreeing on how to handle behavioral issues or consequences? Do you find yourself trying to offset your co-parent's techniques by softening consequences or by being more rigid?

Are you exhausted by the added weight of parenting differences. Or worry about the impact your different parenting styles will have on your kids?

Wondering If Your Kids Will Be Okay?

Protecting our kids is one of the most basic parental instincts. It's no wonder we worry about them. Do any of these sound familiar?

Are my children happy? Healthy? Are they doing okay in school? Are they keeping up academically? Socially? Are they being bullied? Are they bullying someone else? Are they feeling pressured by her peers?

What are they watching on social media? Are they gaming too much? Are they safe online?

Is my child going to be successful in life? Am I providing the right tools for success? Am I spending enough time with them? Am I too hard on my child? Too soft?

Am I doing a good job? Instilling good values? Teaching them the necessary life lessons? Does my child know all of the mistakes I've made? That I'm making right now?

And, the ultimate question…Is my child going to be okay? Yes, Powerful Positive Parenting Plus can help!

You're Not Alone!

You are not alone in your struggles, fears and frustrations. I promise!

And, no! You're not a bad parent. If you were, you wouldn't be here.

On this page. Right now. Searching for support and wisdom to be the best possible parent you can be.

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.
