“[NPC] is one of the best uses of my energy and time.”

– Nora, Mom of a 4-year-old boy and NPC Annual Member


Are you having trouble getting your family going in the direction that you want?

Kids are still kids, even in a pandemic. That is both wonderful, and terrifying. Let me help you get your child’s behavior under control so it can be wonderful and not terrifying 🙂

Do you need help reining in a child’s misbehavior or disrespectful words?

Do you feel like you’re all alone on your parenting journey?

There are many challenges in raising kids:

– How do you get control of sibling rivalry and kids’ disrespect?
– How do you stay positive, when there is so much that feels wrong right now?
– How do you streamline, and make a routine, that will work for your family?
– How do you find time for yourself, and your needs?

I’ve been there!
I know how lonely and frustrating it can be, raising a family.
Even with degrees in human development, family relations, and early childhood education, I had to work really hard to figure it out.
Here’s the good news – you don’t have to do this alone!
I have created a safe space, a supportive community, where you’ll learn exactly how to:
– Guide your kids toward independence, so you can have family harmony AND more free time for yourself
– Handle caring for kids, and even educating them if necessary, during the time of coronavirus
– Create a streamlined routine, so everybody gets the attention and care that they need, even you
– Resist bad advice and shame/judgment from others, instead knowing in your heart that you are raising your kids in exactly the best way for you and your family


I call this safe space the Ninja Parenting Community, NPC for short.

I created NPC as an online private coaching practice, to help you get control of the direction your family is going in, cultivate could feelings of family harmony, and to help you truly feel happy inside.

I’ll show you how to stop the sibling rivalry and disrespect.

I’ll show you how to figure out solutions for what worries you most about your kids.

I’ll show you how to create the kind of family life that you dream of.

I’ll show you how to take charge, so that you and your kids are surviving and thriving.

I am a parent coach and child development expert, and I am really good at what I do!
Among our successes in NPC:

– A mom of twins stopped making empty threats, and started using positive discipline to create enjoyable family time (she also has successfully potty trained both boys, which was a huge challenge! I’m so proud of her!)

– A single mom, working 60+ hours per week and living in a small apartment with her energetic and active four-year-old son, and this mom is crushing it! “I thought this was impossible, and we are DOING it,” she reports : )

– A mom of two young girls, who once relied on corporal punishment as discipline and now teaches her girls to resolve their conflicts, positively and safely, truly caring for each other

– A mom of a three-year-old girl, who’s helping her daughter work through her anxieties and experience being present, in the moment, and happy

I can show you how to have that family life and happiness inside that you dream of.

I’ll bring you into the community, and help you shoot past the learning curve, avoid mistakes, and learn to take control of your family’s direction…

I hope you find it helpful if your child is acting out aggressively or having more meltdowns than you feel you can deal with.

“I am feeling able to handle this! I truly cannot thank you enough.”

“I really appreciate having the support system I’ve gotten here and in the live videos.
– Hadyn, Mom of 2 and NPC Challenge Participant


“How do I …

  • teach my child that bad behavior has consequences?”
  • stop my child from hitting me?”
  • “stop the jumping on the couch for my attention?”
  • get my kids to stop annoying each other, and everyone else?”

“I am full of empty threats, and they know it! Help!”

These are all questions that real parents get help with every day in the Ninja Parenting Community.

I give concrete advice and immediate steps to follow… We go WAY past mindset and into “here’s what to do now.”

Parents learn how to handle the toughest parenting stuff, through courses, training modules, and lots of other resources – including a FREE download of my book, Positive Discipline Ninja Tactics.

Membership gives you access to all of my experience and knowledge as a child development expert.

In the Ninja Parenting Community you get to put all of that to work for you!
