Transform The Way You Parent

And Take Charge of The Toddler Years

Transform The Way You Parent And Take Charge

of The Toddler Years

A transformative parenting program that helps you create a calm and connected home.


Especially when you're triggered AF.

To the burnt-out parent who feels like they’re getting it wrong. We see you.

To the parent who feels like their kids run the show. We feel you.

To the parent who knows there’s gotta be a better way. We understand.

Being a toddler parent is hard.

It's like when it finally feels like we have this whole parenting thing down,

BAM- they turn into toddlers and everything we knew gets thrown out the window.

It doesn't have to feel like you're failing.

It doesn't have to feel like they're running the show.

There is a way for you to take charge of the toddler years.

There is a way you can transform the way you parent your child.

Even though they say we aren’t given parenting manuals when we become parents, we disagree.

The parenting manual we have

is how WE were raised.

And there’s a lot of power in knowing that.

Because as much as what our parents got right,

there’s also a lot that doesn’t serve us, and those Connection Wounds

are what we keep running into every time we have a #parentingfail.

• Losing our patience when our children are in the midst of a tantrum.

Not knowing how to discipline in a way that sticks.

Yelling, screaming, or using old methods that scared us more than taught us.

• Getting in our own way in following through with what we're learning.

Calm the chaos in our home.

Stop the power-struggles with our strong-willed toddlers.

• Communicate in a way they’ll listen.

 Discipline in a gentle and effective way.

Raise children who are resilient

and compassionate adults.

Lessen the urge to "take the edge off" every night and actually *enjoy* that glass of wine.

• Feel confident in leaving your kiddos in the care of others.

• Schedule date night to talk about all your wins, instead of your parenting fails.

Truly enjoy a girls weekend because you freakin' deserve it.

Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it?

Well, it can be your reality.



Show off just how much easier, lighter, happier, better things will be when this solution is placed into their lives.

Transform your parenting by taking charge of the toddler years, calming the chaos in your home, and becoming an expert on your child’s behavior.

Raising Children You Like is a 2-part parenting program backed by the latest research in early childhood development and infant mental health that's been turned into a unique framework, filled with practical and actionable tips for everyday parents.

This program goes beyond telling you what to say, because without understanding the underlying root of the issues, the scripts that “parenting gurus” teach are just bandaids for problems.

Interactive Journal with prompts to personalize your Taking Charge Plan

100+ sentence starters and phrases for certain situations to know what to say, how to say it and why it works

We start by taking charge of our home and family with Part 1:

Of The Toddler Years

Of The Toddler Years


Tantrums are unmet NEEDS. They’re Normal,

they’re Emotional,

they’re to be Expected,

they’re definitely Demanding, and they require us to Stop

and Respond.

You’ll come away with:

Identifying and meeting the needs of your child.

A method to minimize tantrums.

A method to prevent tantrums.

6 tantrum soothers that work for everyday parents.


Somewhere along the way, we have lost sight that discipline actually means to teach rather than to punish. And with living in a society that favors prisons over schools, it’s no wonder parents are having such a hard time disciplining their children.

You’ll come away with:

Understanding your Trigger Points and how to soothe them.

A technique to stay calm

and regulated.

A method for setting house rules the whole family can stick to.

12 discipline hacks that actually work.

Finally getting aligned with your parenting partner.

And once you’ve taken charge,

you’re ready to transform the toddler years in Part 2:

The Toddler Years

The Toddler Years


Now it’s time to take the gloves off and get our hands dirty. When you know what to do, have a hard time following through, that means you’re running into the Connection Wounds we mentioned earlier.

You’ll come away with:

Identifying your Connection Wounds and what Walls you’ve put in place for protection.

Identifying your Connection Wins and how those created Bridges in your life to connect you in relationships.

Setting and holding boundaries with yourself and loved ones so you can show up in your life how you intended to.

Coping strategies to deal with stress, anxiety, and fears that you can actually stick to.


Parenting for the most part is trial by fire. But it doesn’t have to take years for us to get to a place where we’re proud of it. Hindsight is for those who don’t take preventative actions that can set themselves and their kids up for success. (teenage-years-dread, anyone?).

You’ll come away with:

The 3 Pillars of Raising Children You Like.

Knowing how to teach your child emotional intelligence, resilience, and empathy (and so much more.)

A transformed relationship with your parenting partner.

Transforming the sibling relationship between your children.

Knowing how to teach body awareness and break gender stereotypes, so they learn to be more accepting in this melting pot of a world.

the chaos in your home, and becoming an expert on your child’s behavior.

Hear from parents who've joined

the movement of

Raising Children You Like.

Let's sweeten the deal.



There are certain times where we can sense a tantrum is coming and oftentimes it’s around meals and bedtime. And that’s because when your child is hungry or tired, their nervous system is crying to get those needs met.

You’ll come away with:

An approach to having a stress-free dining experience.

An approach to bedtime your kids will look forward to.


Screen time has become everyone’s BFF. Need to get on a call? Here’s the iPad. Need to trim their nails? Give them the phone. Even for adults. There’s nothing like scrolling mindlessly on our phones after a rough day. But want to know a secret? There is a way to optimize screen time to enhance your relationship with your kiddos instead of it just being a distraction tool.

You’ll come away with:

A sure-fire approach to using screens in a developmentally-appropriate way.

A list of alternatives to use instead of screens.

How to have a screen-free (and tantrum-free) dining experience, inside and outside the home.


You don’t realize how scary it is for a child to go see a doctor or dentist until you get there and they act like a cat being put into a bathtub. Speaking of bathtubs, how many times do you remind your kiddos to “keep the water in the tub,” or that brushing their teeth, brushing their hair, and washing their hands happens E-ver-y-Day.

You'll come away with:

Methods on having tear-free check-ups and dentist visits.

Easy peasy hygiene tips.

A PLAN for when they need to see a specialist and how to walk them through that experience.



In Taking Charge of the Toddler Years, you’ll learn how to manage and prevent tantrums from happening. You’ll also know how to identify your triggers and take charge of your discipline. The next step after that is transforming typical toddler behavior. If you live for parenting tips on Instagram, you’re going to LOVE this.

You'll come away with:

How to handle 45 typical toddler behaviors, in a way that teaches them what you expect, rather than what you don’t want them to do.

Sentence starters and phrases for each specific behavior to add to your toolbox.

The ideal tone and posture to use when delivering these messages.

An explanation of why this works (in case you have a partner who thinks gentle parenting doesn’t work.)

You can break the cycle of passing down habits that no longer serve you.

We don’t take raising the next generation lightly. We understand the responsibility and we are rising to the occasion and taking action.

We are a well-researched, highly informed, premium program that seeks to transform your life. We’re loving and compassionate healers seeking to make a difference in the parenting space. We’re so grateful to help you calm the chaos in your home and deepen the connection with those you love.


Level up your parenting to become more connected with your family

and have a more peaceful home.

You deserve to enjoy these early years of parenthood.

Your frequently asked questions, we're happy

to answer.


Parenting is like an onion. So we broke down this transformative experience into two parts to make sure you feel confident building on top of what you're learning.

The first course gives you all the tricks and tips you need to take charge of the toddler years. The second course is for when you find yourself running into roadblocks. Like, you know what to do, but you can’t follow through. You need more guidance on siblings, on your relationship, and you’re ready to fully transform your home. If you just need one and not the other, you can buy it here.

Won’t they just grow out of this phase? What’s the point of taking courses to teach me how to parent?

While yes, children do grow out of ‘phases’, what children learn in these phases they take with them. We have an optimal opportunity to nurture and support our child’s ENTIRE development by committing to parent in this intentional, respectful way. And yes, this approach works.

Is there a money-back guarantee?

Yes! Try it out for 30 days. If you're unhappy with how you've taken charge and transformed, email us and we'll be happy to refund you.

How are you different than other courses?

So many courses out there focus on giving you only the scripts and hacks and then tell you to add sprinkles in your kid's water to get them to drink medicine. Although we also provide scripts, we take it a step beyond to heal the root of the problem. We are not in the business of selling bandaids for problems. We're here to ACTUALLY heal and transform families.
