What Makes Transformative Parenting Different?

We don't believe that parenting is meant to be about using tricks and techniques when something goes wrong, it's about loving your children and doing what it takes to avoid most problems in the first place.

And we know that parenting "experts" aren't the answer for your child, you are. We are simply guides who walk you through our three-step process of learning how to be the parent you really want to be.

Step One: Attachment & Connection

The main factor in how children behave grow into their greatest potential is how secure they feel in their important relationships. Our process helps parents learn how exactly to make sure their children get their essential emotional and psychological needs met...which happens to also lead to much better behavior.

Step Two: Environment & Structure

It is also important to understand the power of the right environment and structure for your family. We teach parents how simplifying your home environment, creating daily rituals and clearly establishing family rules and expectations also improves behavior and leads to less stress and overwhelm.

Step Three: Discipline & Behavior

By the time our clients reach this phase in our process, they report that difficult behaviors are much more rare...but they still happen sometimes. We help parents understand why these behaviors are happening and teach them effective and relationship-friendly strategies for responding to them.

"Todd is one of the most intuitive, instructive and down to earth practitioners I know. His course always gets rave reviews. Most importantly, he leaves parents with reassurance and direction. The toughest part about educating parents is making sure that they leave with practical, enforceable and realistic solutions for their particular family. Todd delivers in spades."
