Toddlers and Preschoolers bring a whole new level of independence and energy to a family.


Everything is exciting and new.

That bug. Those cookies. Anything deemed "off limits."

Everything is a battle.

Bathtime. Finding the "right" shoes. Snapping the car seat buckle.

And everything...anything...
can trigger the world's largest meltdown.


(No wonder you're tired.)

Thankfully, relief is in sight.


You can actually enjoy these years, instead of wishing them away.

You can learn to discipline your child without spanking or using time out.

And, best of all, you can build a strong relationship that will last well beyond this stage.

In this course you will...

  • Identify and address the things that stand in the way of becoming the parent you want to be (no added guilt here!)
  • Learn specific strategies to manage those challenging behaviors like tantrums, separation anxiety, sharing, calming down and more! 
  • Join a private Facebook group for additional support, encouragement, and accountability.
  • Complete a simple workbook to help you stay organized and on track with what you learn along the way!
​​​​​​​Parenting Toddlers and Preschoolers

I barely have time to go to the bathroom alone, can I really do this?

Yes!

This course is written for busy parents like you! It's self-paced and you have lifetime access to the materials.

The lessons and videos are compact but packed with information, strategies, and techniques that you can use right away. 

Read a lesson or watch a video on your own schedule. Then, pull out the workbook later, giving yourself a few minutes to process the information and apply it to your specific situation. 

Totally manageable.

Even if your computer is covered with tiny Nutella fingerprints and you have to fill in the workbook with a blue crayon.

You can do this.

Confident, Respectful Parenting: One lesson at a time. One video at a time. One moment at a time.

Welcome!
