  • Teach Your Child to Listen the FIRST Time! 
    Do you ever feel like you just can’t get your child to listen to you? This is our most popular workshop for a reason!
  • The Ins and Outs of Toilet Training
    Which method of potty training actually works? How do I know if my child is ready? Is there any way to do this really fast? We'll review the literature supporting our approach as well as tips and tricks we've learned from training hundreds of children.

  • Prepare Siblings for Baby's Arrival! 
    Wondering how to help your little one adjust to the new sibling who is on the way? Or maybe the transition with the first new sibling didn’t go so well and you’re looking for a little help this time around. We’ve got you covered!

  • Picky Eater to Peaceful Eater
    Does your child live off of chicken nuggets and grilled cheese? Can’t seem to get any veggies in the diet? It doesn’t have to be this way. Learn how to overcome picky eating in your home.

  • My Child Avoids (Almost) Everything! 
    Does your child tend to avoid or control things? Does your child whine, dawdle or try to get out of what s/he is told to do? Do you feel like you've tried EVERYTHING with your child? Children in early childhood use their unwanted behavior efficiently! We can help you recognize the subtle patterns of avoidance in your children so you can teach more appropriate skills before it gets “bad enough”.

Audio recordings:

  • Solve Your Child's Sleep Disruptions 
    Did you know that parents who receive sleep education before a child is 3 months old report smoother roads than those who lack this education? Sleep problems don't have to be the norm...whether your child is 3 months or 3 years of age, help is on the way!
  • Combat Impulsivity by Teaching Your Child Self-Control!
    We are raising children in a society that puts a high value on things that are fast and convenient. Children rarely have to wait for things. Because of this, we have to teach self-control to children as young as one year old. We need to intentionally create opportunities for our children to learn to wait for things, accept no for an answer, and move on when it is time to end something fun at home, to set them up for success at school. 

  • My Child Doesn’t Respond to Rewards! Capitalize on Your Child's Natural Motivation!
    We will review the reasons children often do not respond to rewards and share other strategies to motivate your kiddos more naturally. We will discuss how control may be your child’s motivation and how to capitalize on that natural motivation and steer it into a positive direction.
  • Supporting Your Elementary Student with Distance Learning
    We share tips for setting up a successful distance learning station in your home and creating a routine and expectations for distance learning that consider your work-from-home schedule. We will highlight pivotal behavior regulation skills to work on with your child to promote independence with distance learning. Learn our evidence-based parenting tools to promote child participation and compliance during remote learning. 
  • I’ve Tried Everything! Typical Parenting Doesn’t Work With My Child!
    Do you feel like you’ve tried EVERYTHING and your child is still not displaying the correct behaviors? Parenting books and other advice-givers likely didn’t do a thorough assessment of WHY YOUR CHILD has learned to use his/her unwanted behavior. Learn why WHEN you teach determines the success of your teaching! 

  • My Child Delays, Dawdles, One-More-Minutes, And Then Still Screams When It’s Time To End Something!
    Don‘t cover up this missing skill! Teach your child the crucial skill of pausing or ending preferred activities! Did you know there are 3 self-control skills/behaviors involved in a successful transition? Learn what those 3 behaviors are and how to teach your child. 

  • My Child Avoids (Almost) Everything!
    Does your child tend to avoid or control things? It’s import to address this behavior early on, before it becomes ingrained and truly problematic.

  • Everything is a Battle or Negotiation with my Child! How to Pick Your Battles Wisely!
    Are you tired of your child’s constant arguing, negotiating, or otherwise battling your parenting? Do you give in to his/her demands and negotiations to avoid the battle? If picking the battle means an epic tantrum or aggression, it is likely that you need to pick the battle, but in different way at another time. The battle is indication that your child is missing a skill. We will share strategies to nip this pattern in early childhood by assessing the extent to which your child is using negotiation as avoidance, and help you identify WHEN and HOW to pick the right battles!

  • Don’t Teach the ABC’s During a Tantrum!
    So often we try to correct unwanted behavior and teach the new behavior “in the heat of the moment.” The brain isn’t wired to learn new information when it is firing. In fact, it is designed to actively block any input to PROTECT the child who doesn’t yet have all the skills to begin with.

  • I Expect My Child to Obey and Show Respect
    Expectation is not a teaching strategy! You can expect your child to learn to swim all day long but if you don’t provide the instruction and opportunity to practice, s/he will not learn to swim. The same goes with behavior. Your child needs to practice the correct behavior and has to be given ample opportunities to practice the correct behavior. It’s not about disrespect; it’s about teaching new skills. 

  • How Can I Help My Child At School When It Doesn’t Happen At Home
    Parents may learn what pushes children’s buttons and inadvertently avoid or accommodate those situations. This can be a disservice to your child, as it may mask missing skill(s). Teachers or coaches cannot be as flexible or accommodate your child’s missing skills. You can and need to create opportunities at home to teach those missing skills.

  • My Child Constantly Pushes My Boundaries! Teach boundaries to children through choices.
    When you offer two options does your child say, “Both”, “Neither”, or suggest a 3rd option? The ability to make a choice when presented with options is one of the first behavior regulation skills to develop. Parents need children to pick one of the choices offered to maintain parental boundaries. We will break down choice-making into teachable steps, share how to strategically offer choices to prevent unwanted behavior; and how to effectively use more advanced choices. 

  • Everyone Says This Behavior Is Normal, but I’m Struggling to Parent My Toddler!
    When “normal” childhood behavior becomes a pattern such that you aren’t enjoying time with your child anymore, it isn’t normal! It is a learned pattern of behavior. The longer your child practices unwanted behavior, the better s/he gets at it. Teach your child during the younger years to prevent patterns of unwanted behavior as your child enters school age.
