The Power
of Parenting

Discover the secret to swapping power struggles and pushback for cooperation and connection.

Parenting can feel like
one argument after another.

If we’re not threatening to take away our child’s screen time, we’re butting heads over homework. Or lecturing them about lying. Or (ironically) yelling at them for yelling at us.

There must be a better way, right?

There is a better way.
And it’s never too late to start.

In The Power of Parenting online course, you’ll learn how to:

Set limits without triggering tantrums.

Inspire cooperation without begging or bribing.

Stay connected without feeling like a pushover.

When you parent on purpose:

You can parent your way, instead of how your parents raised you.

Your kids can be their authentic selves, rather than simply complying with rules.
You’ll know you’re doing your best, so you can let go of mom guilt.

Your children will want to cooperate with you because they know you deeply value them.

You can build meaningful relationships with your kids that last into their teenage years and beyond.

I just want my child to behave! Will this course work?

It will… although maybe in a different way than you imagine. 
The Power of Parenting isn’t about asserting power over your child. It’s about harnessing their power so they want to meet your expectations.
If you grew up in a home with strict, authoritarian adults who were all about obedience and punishment, that approach may sound overly “permissive.” We promise it’s not.

There's no way my partner/in-laws will get on board with "gentle" parenting. What should I do?

We offer suggestions for navigating this exact scenario inside the course!

I feel like my child is out of control. Will this help?

We’ve talked with thousands of parents who were at their wits’ end before discovering the strategies we teach in The Power of Parenting. So, yes: Even if you feel like you’ve tried everything, this course will help.

I follow @thedoctormommy on Instagram. Will I learn anything new
