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.

Parenting is a non-stop responsibility, and you’re right in the middle of it! When your kids misbehave, it’s all too easy to respond by getting big, mean, and loud. Maybe you’ve tried to be thoughtful and intentional in responding to misbehavior. Yet you keep returning to the same ingrained patterns. It’s hard to break the negative cycles!

Our course is here to give you concrete strategies backed by neuroscience and developmental psychology that not only work, but IMPROVE the relationship you have with your child

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 video lessons!
