Feeling like you can’t get to your child? At your wits end with disruptive behaviour? Feel that your children don’t listen to anything you say? Wondering if there is something more effective than yelling, time-outs, or physical discipline? Feeling overwhelmed as a parent and aren’t sure what else to do? …or maybe you are just trying to look for ways to be the best parent you can be while honoring the relationship with your child.
This course will begin with an overview of neurological development of children and how this accounts for their struggles with emotion regulation and impulse control. A thorough overview of attachment will be covered: parents will be able to identify and comprehend their current attachment style with their child, how that impacts behaviour, and how to strengthen the attachment should their be issues with connecting.
Our Co-Founder, Tammy Schamuhn, Registered Psychologist and Registered Play Therapist will guide parents and caregivers through effective discipline strategies that honor the relationship with their child and foster neurological development. Furthermore, they will have a better understanding of “what gets in the way” of emotional health in children, and how modern-day discipline can go very wrong with our children [and why it just doesn’t work for us long-term]. All strategies are science-informed, evidence-based, and practical for parenting children. This course is packed with resources, links, and videos on top of the 6.5 hours of curriculum!

Tammy provided information in a way that was linear and easy to follow. Links between research, outcomes, ideas and tools were clear and logical. These things make implementing new discipline techniques and changing our parenting behaviour easier. I appreciated that everything was grounded in research and that Tammy used layman’s terms. It was easy to connect with her and understand the information. I left the presentation with parenting and discipline tools and tactics, a better understanding of my and my child’s behaviour and ways to change both of those to better our lives. I’ve recommended this session to all of my parenting friends, and I’m so glad I took it.
I set a goal today to put into practice what I have learned . . .so far day one has been a success and I am looking forward to many more happy fun days with the techniques I’ve learned to be closer to my daughter. I know there will be ups and downs but I just want to say thank you so much! I have been feeling very emotional, and I can definitely see where I was going wrong. It’s one thing to get suggestions and answers but what really pulled it all together was learning how exactly my two-and-a-half-year old’s brain is working, and not working yet. We had such a good day I want to cry tears of happiness.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for this course… I knew I was doing something wrong, but no matter what book I read, or doctor I spoke with, I never received proper help. You truly inspired me. You gave me my “ah ha” moment . . . I immediately started using the techniques you taught us (and) the results were instant. It was like I could finally “see” my girl & what I wasn’t giving. . . I wish this course was recommend to everyone who has a child, or is thinking about starting a family. I believe I wouldn’t have struggled so long if I had known about you and this class. Honestly. I just can’t thank you enough for what you’ve taught me. From the bottom of my heart ….. I truly thank you

Thank you so much Tammy!! I feel excited and confident in my approach to parenting rather than feeling like I’m waiting for them to misbehave. Which is really just a call out to me! I hope to put as much passion into raising my girls as you have for teaching it to us.
I loved so much about this course. I loved learning about how a child processes information. How their lid flips and how long it takes to come back online. I loved learning how my baggage can effect how I am raising my kids. The information on technology. . . the little clips were great and very informative. I loved it al

This course had real techniques, and conveyed an understanding that we are all humans. We make mistakes but that we can all try to do better next time. It not only helped me better understand my son, but my husband as well and where he comes from at times
