The Strong Willed Child Mom's Support Community is a safe, supportive membership for parents to learn techniques that help soften the struggles and allow families to feel more peaceful, hopeful, and connected.

What to Expect / How it Works

When you join The Strong Willed Child Mom's Support  Community, each month you’ll get:

  • Live Sessions 

    • Connect and share your parenting struggles and successes in a supportive and judgment-free space. We take creating this safe space to be heard, built on trust and mutual agreements seriously.

    • You’ll meet fellow Mom's who understand what you’re going through, and leave feeling seen, heard and accepted; empowered to try a new approach. 

    • Group sessions run on Zoom via Mighty Networks, a platform that allows us to hold private group chats, make connections with one another, and keep everything together in one self-contained place. 

  • Weekly videos and educational articles 

    • Sharing lessons and ideas you can access and implement at any time for skill building, encouragement and support 
    • Each session explores a theme - such as anger, anxiety, emotional health or meltdowns - and walks through a framework you can use to approach these challenges in a proactive way. 

  • Filling your tank is a foundation for thriving while doing this work. We also share weekly suggestions and encouragement for infusing self-care into your daily routine.

Here’s what other parents are saying about the SWC Mom's Support Community:

"This Mom's Community is helping me stay connected with my values when I parent. I have a better understanding of myself and my kids. I found a community where, without fear, we can be honest about how we live our messy journey as parents." ~ Carole,  parent of 3

"After learning the 5 Steps to Connect framework, I feel more grounded and able to cope. I come from a family who "didn't do emotions" so I'd feel triggered when my children had them. I'd want to fix it or rationalize it away. Now I have skills and practices that work! What a difference it's made with my kids!" ~ Angela, twin boys

 "Prior to joining, my house was filled with aggression, defiance, back-talking, disrespect, and sibling rivalry.  NOW- I control MY response better, which in turn helps THEM get less defensive and recenter more quickly. Seeing how to shift MY ENERGY was a huge eye-opener that I am very grateful for. I really love 3 VITAL THINGS tips and scripts. I use these a million times a day and my kids respond well to them. I truly enjoy the feeling that I am really not alone and my kids aren't these terrible little people. We are in this together! I REALLY love our community!

~Steph, 2 boys 

"I would have given anything to have these skills sooner as a parent! I felt alone and like a failure. Like I was doing something wrong since my experience seemed so much harder and more intense than most parents I knew." ~ Jennifer, two boys 

I love having concrete tools to use and knowledge that emotions have a message for us and are necessary. Also to know that an "uncooperative" child is one who needs connection and an emotional release. This helps me not take it personally." ~ Wendy, 2 girls

"I love what I took away from The SWC Mom's Support Community... Each week I walked away feeling better with myself and with some great new idea to try at home. The ideas were easy to implement and most importantly as a parent, easy to remember! Best of all, I find more positivity in my family life with these practices." ~ Megan, 2 kids
