“I’m so happy to have had Kelly work with me. I’ve done the online Peaceful Parent Happy Kids class with Dr. Laura, which was one of the best parenting decisions I ever made. I used many skills I learned with my oldest. They were all useful and powerful! As my youngest got older, I realized that I wasn’t doing the same with her. Kelly took the time to listen with such an open heart to my story and asked so many great questions so she could really understand where I was at. She gave me many tools and concrete activities / ideas to do with my 2 year old daughter. Because of PPD and other emotional issues, I had a difficult time connecting with my youngest. I spoke with Kelly just about a week ago, and already in that time, my relationship with my daughter has changed. In fact, last night, while I was nursing her, she looked up and said “love you mama”. My heart swelled! In just that short time of following the suggestions from Kelly, my relationship with her has ALREADY turned around. I am so grateful! Thank you, Kelly! I’m so happy and excited to continue finally bonding with my sweet girl.” – Melanie W.
“Kelly helped me adapt a parenting style that allowed me to be more present and patient with my two children (ages 4&2). I cannot imagine parenting any other way at this point. Being a patient and present parent has helped my strong-willed daughter excel in her young life. I have learned many techniques to deal with strong-willed children so my daughter can still keep her spirited personality but we can have a happy household. Kelly has also taught me how to incorporate silly and fun rough housing techniques to deal with my sons hitting behaviors. I am forever grateful for Kelly’s presence in my parenting style! Thank you SO much!” – Rachel W.
“Talking with Kelly helped me see that my efforts to stop my son’s constant whining and hitting weren’t working and resulting in more frustration and conflict in our home. I did know yelling at him and punishing him weren’t really working, but I felt at a loss and didn’t know what to do. Now, I’m a lot better regulating myself and more connected with my son and life is feeling much better for all of us! Thank you!” – Sarah C.
“Kelly is excellent at allowing parents to share how they really feel about parenting and their personal challenges without judgement. She then isolates areas where there is as a growth opportunity. She is a true professional and allows flexibility to suit specific family needs. I made marked strides working with Kelly which in turn positively affected the rest of my family. It was really nice to have an outlet and a place where I could say whatever was on my mind.” – mom of two boys, ages 4 and 6.
“My 5 year old son is a mirror image of me – highly emotional and impossibly strong willed. I found myself screaming at him daily and really falling apart just trying to get him to understand and follow through with simple everyday tasks This morning, after attending Kelly’s workshop last night, I have these words ingrained in my mind: “Wow, he is really having a hard time” NOT “why is he always giving me such a hard time.” I apologized to my kids for yelling so much and let them know that I am going to try really hard to hear them more and yell at them less. Within minutes the power struggle in my home during our busy morning routine dissipated. My kids got stressed when I am asked them to (after some kind words and long hugs) and ate their breakfast (yes, all of it) at the table with me while I drank my morning tea. I haven’t sat down in the morning in four years. It’s such a weight lifted off my heart. Being a mom is the hardest job in the world and I am hopeful this is the beginning of a much happier and peaceful home – for us and for our children. I can’t wait to work more with Kelly and learn more about Peaceful Parenting.” – Mom of two boys, (ages 3 and 5)
“Thank you so much for offering the Peaceful Parenting workshops. Words cannot express how grateful I am to connect with you and your workshops. I learned so many practical tools I can apply every day with my children. It has really made a positive shift in our home and greatly benefited our family. You are great at what you do and what you are giving families is priceless. Thank you so much!” – Letter from Chris T, mom of two children (ages 7 and 9)
