You feel like you've tried everything but...

  • Nothing seems to work and the behaviors seem to be escalating.
  • The more you try to connect, the more they push you away.
  • Your kids don't trust you, and you don't trust them either.
  • Shame seems to have the upper hand, and you’re running out of patience and compassion.
  • You can't figure out what's "normal" teen and what's ADHD, FASD, RAD, trauma, etc.
  • You just can't seem to win.

There’s hope for your family. Imagine a world where (even if you were stuck at home), parenting challenging kids didn't include chaos and drama and you knew exactly what to do no matter what crazy behavior you were faced with.

Sound too good to be true? It's not. You can get the support you need.

I reached out to Melissa when one of our children started displaying scary behaviors that were outside of the tools we had. I had run out of ideas and felt like I was failing. Once we started using the REAL Life Behavior Plan System, I could feel the bitterness slipping away, and I started enjoying my child. The behaviors haven't completely gone away, but I don't live in fear anymore. I feel in control of myself and confident about my parenting. The transformation is like night and day. Thanks to Melissa, we feel like we have our family back again.
