Parenting Challenging Kids

Learning Cohorts & Support Groups

I LOVE groups because parents learn and receive support with other families with similar challenges.

  • Do you butt heads with your child or preteen?
  • Do they resist conversations?
  • Do they struggle with big emotions or behaviors, attending school, or life in general? 

There is a way forward!  In the learning cohort we will explore ways to build regulation skills and family communication so that you can better enjoy your lives together and help them succeed in our demanding world.

You've probably tried all the things: the charts, the rewards, the threats and punishments... you've tried being more consistent, holding firmer boundaries, and even giving in (sometimes we just have to survive). I'm going to help you see these challenges in a new way so that you can learn how and why to do things differently.

While ALL children's brains and bodies are still growing, some youth need more from us in order to build regulation and life skills. And in order for us to help them, we have to build a relationship with them where they know we are here to help them.

There is no chart, reward, or punishment that will change their ability to do better.

Join me and learn what you can do instead.
