Q: Is this class offered at a certain time, with other people?
A: No, this course is individual and self-paced. You do it on your own, when and where you want it, on any device.
For several years, I taught this content in a live seminar, Savvy Solutions for your Challenging Young Child. After many lively parent groups, the content refined and evolved into my ChildSightTools® model. But it became very difficult for interested parents to attend live. So, I created this course!
Q: Can I get a taste for your content and presentation style before I purchase?
A: YES! You'll find 5 lessons marked PREVIEW in the curriculum at the bottom of this course info page.
Q: I've seen dozens of parenting courses online. Why and how is yours different?
A. Well first, I am a licensed Child Psychologist trained at the doctoral level. I've treated children with highly complex issues, beyond every-day parenting problems. For decades, I've sat on the floor listening and playing with young children. They've opened their minds, hearts and spirits to me. And I've extended those insights to caregivers in "the parent half of child therapy."
Second, I don't simply offer parenting tricks to get kids to behave. I help parents see young kids clearly ... and how it feels to be their child. Seeing the child's point of view changes everything in parenting. And that is a huge driver of improvement in child behavior. So, the emphasis on looking through the child's eyes -- the heart of ChildSightTools® -- sets this course apart.
Q: How long will this take?
A: If you just breeze through the videos, about 90 minutes in all. Each video is brief, about 3-4 minutes each, so busy parents can watch when they can. Short, labeled segments make it easy to find your back to specific tips. You can get the main idea from the video. And the workbook & printables help you remember and apply it.
If you choose to use the printables, download the memes and do the workbook exercises (some or all), it’s as much time as you would like to put in. And you can as circle back whenever you need.
Q: What’s in the digital workbook?
A: The 30-page workbook is where all your transformations happen. The pages summarize video info, give exercises that help you "think along" and guidance to weave these tips into your life. It’s the place where where you make this course your own. At the end of each section, the “Take Action“ sheet guides you in getting started.
Q: What’s the Meme gallery?
A: Throughout the videos, my original memes appear. The meme gallery is a place to view them again and download any to your phone or device. That way they're at your fingertips when you need them most!
Q: What if I'm not happy with the course?
A: If you find you're not as satisfied as you expected, contact me within 30 days and your purchase will refunded.
Q: Do you offer coaching along with this course?
A. That is a definite possibility! This course was originally presented live in small groups. The parent interaction was so wonderful and tripled the learning. So coaching would be a lovely, personalized way to recreate that benefit. If you would be interested in coaching, please let me know - email me at [email protected] and I'll keep you posted on developments.
Q: Do you offer a private parent community?
A: This is introductory sampler course. Soon, my other 4 core ChildSightTools courses will be released. Private communities are planned for those courses. They will assemble parents working on the same material and concerns.
