Do you feel like you're drowning in challenging behaviors? No amount of yelling or punishing is working, and you just want more cooperation from their kids. You've found a safe place where we know what it's like to feel like you're at the end of your rope. We also know you are desperate for something different for your kids. If you're here, you're doing a great job because you haven't given up yet. There is hope and help!
Before I talked with Melissa, I felt alone. She is an awesome resource and really understands the day to day struggles of parenting!
Before finding connected parenting I found myself spiraling down to where I felt like I was drowning. Now I have hope and joy again, and my self confidence has returned. I am able to be the mom I want to be.
I felt encouraged to know I had someone to talk to who understands what my family and I were going through. It was so helpful to feel heard!
When we welcomed an 11, 13, and 14 into our family as parent trainers, we thought we were prepared. We were wrong.
We spent three years in a constant power struggle and dying on all the wrong hills. It took almost losing our kids to get us to do something differently.
Now is your chance to learn from our mistakes. It's never too late.
I've helped dozens of parents of tweens and teens shift to a brain-based view of behaviors so they can find more effective solutions besides threatening and punishing. I'm also a mom to six kids by birth and adoption. They've taught me a lot about what creates thriving parent-child relationships…and what doesn't.
