Our Essentials program gives you an entire framework to decrease challenging behaviors and build healthy, happy family relationships.
You feel confused about how to respond.
And Nothing you’ve tried seems to be working.
But you promised yourself you would do it differently.
When savvy entrepreneurs start a new venture, the first thing they do is create a business plan. They know when unexpected bumps happen on their journey, they will need a way to navigate through to the other side.
Why don’t we treat our families the same way?
While it would be nice if kids came with instruction booklets, they don’t. Most parents use advice from the internet or repeat patterns from their own childhood to do the best they can while feeling overwhelmed and flustered.
You already know you need a better approach, but figuring out a starting point and unearthing credible information is difficult. Our Essentials e-course provides you with concrete tools that have been studied and are shown to improve behavioral and emotional outcomes for kids and decrease parenting stress.
“As a result of this course, we are better and more confident parents and our family is happier and calmer as a whole.”
Our Essentials parenting course puts the power of the most studied evidence-based parenting programs in the palm of your hands
In this 6 module course, Dr. Shanna Alvarez and Dr. Jenna Elgin will equip you with the fundamental knowledge and positive parenting tools to tackle toddler tantrums through pre-teen angst.
This course is perfect to help you parent kids ages 2 through 10.
Connection is the heart of raising emotionally healthy children. Children accept guidance from parents when they feel a strong bond. By the end of this module, you will learn simple yet powerful skills shown to improve your relationship with your child. You’ll also learn how to build your child’s emotional regulation through coaching.
Behaviors often let us know that a child is missing a skill or sense of motivation. Children, just like us, are doing the best they can with the skills they have at the time. Learn a menu of research-based tools to teach your child how to meet their goals in healthy ways and improve behavior.
Even if they don’t realize it, children crave boundaries. Yet, healthy limits can be hard to set up and maintain. In order to enforce boundaries, we first need to make sure they are well defined and understood by our kids. Here, you learn to do the preventative work in boundary-setting to set your child up for success and improve cooperation.
After you’ve set clear boundaries, you need to know what to do when they are crossed. This module will help you find the balance between correction and loving guidance. We will use research to work through hot topics like time-out and handling annoying behaviors.
Child behavior doesn’t happen in isolation. The well-being of all family members is interconnected. Sibling conflict may be inevitable, but there are helpful ways to deal with rivalries that set your children up for a lifetime of healthy relationships. Learn skills to nourish your children’s sibling dynamics and your own well-being.
By the time you reach the last module of Parenting Essentials, you will have given yourself the gifts of freedom from misinformation, hope, and confidence. You will have resources if you need more support and tools to troubleshoot when tough times arise.
This 90-minute workshop will bring back peace to your evenings and help the whole family get the sleep they need. You will understand the science behind healthy sleep, get tools to develop an effective bedtime routine, prevent bedtime power struggles, respond to pushback.
In this 2-part, 95-minute workshop, we do a deep dive into the young toddler years. We explore toddler brain development, define what co-regulation is (and isn’t) and the cooperation and limit setting tools from the main course for children under age 3. While designed for our younger toddlers, this workshop is helpful for any parent wanting to better understand challenging behaviors and how to respond.
