Make life-changing shifts in the way you parent

Every parent deserves to have the skill and mindset to gracefully RIDIE the waves of challenging scenarios, instead of being worn out and drained by the ups and downs of daily life with kids

You'll learn how to:

Set clear, confident limits

I'll show you HOW to set effective, empathic limits step-by-step as well as WHAT limits to set. You'll know exactly what to say and why and learn to hold confident boundaries while keeping your child’s self-esteem intact.

Handle your child’s emotions

Handle your kids big explosive emotions and learn how to best help them move through their feelings in a way that supports emotional intelligence, emotional regulation and resilience.

Handle your own big emotions

Handle your OWN explosive emotions and break out of the exhausting guilt inducing cycle of blowing up at your kids when nothing else seems to work. Understand why your child ‘pushes your buttons’ and learn to stop repeating unhealthy patterns that you likely carry from your own childhood

Access the tools you need to gracefully rise above the chaos and become the relaxed and confident parent you strive to become. The WW course is designed to be the only course you’ll ever need to take on limit setting and emotions.
