Highly Emotional or Highly Sensitive Child?
Discover Calm, Confident
Connection Despite The Challenge
Just Minutes a Day For A Complete Turnaround in Your Home
Are You Feeling
Depleted, Defeated, or Desperate?
Maybe you're feeling overwhelmed by trying to read the books, doing
the research, and looking for all the possible explanations for your
child's issues and struggles.
Maybe you're feeling saddened that, despite your prayers and best efforts to understand your child and his unique needs, you just can't figure out
how to deal with him effectively or connect.
Maybe you're feeling discouraged that you can't get on the same page with parenting, find consistency, or agree about how to handle your child, his intense emotions, or challenging behavior.
Maybe you're feeling exhausted by the amount of doctors, counseling, occupational and physical therapy, or other appointments you and your child have on the schedule, and you aren't even sure they are helping.
Maybe you're feeling guilty about focusing your limited time, efforts, resources, and energy on your business or activities, knowing that you really need to invest in figuring out those nagging concerns you still have about your child.
Maybe you're feeling defeated, wondering if your child or family, for that matter, will even know peace and calm again, or even have a chance at making fun memories together, because of all the turmoil and stress in your home.
Maybe you're feeling desperate to find your child, your other children, yourself,
and your entire family a bit of relief from the meltdowns and constant struggle.
Maybe you're feeling so incredibly consumed by your child's behaviors, emotions, issues, medication maintenance, and daily care that you question
if you even exist outside of these challenges.
Waking up in a home where you can feel calm and content. You are confident in how you will handle troubles that may arise, and you have the energy and desire to do fun things!
You feel a connection with your child and can
truly enjoy their company!
You feel aware of your child and their unique needs, and you can anticipate how they may handle situations. There is a new sense of acceptance of the needs they have and also a clarity in the steps you would take to be effective in helping them. You are no longer searching for things that will be a miracle cure, instead, you are confident in your knowledge and skill to understand, communicate, and work through difficult times. You can face each day with a renewed sense of understanding and tools that you have found to help you and your child feel calm, confident, successful, and truly connected. For the first time, you are on the same page with parenting and your parenting approach. You realize you now have the energy and ability to invest in things that
help you feel refreshed and fulfilled. And. that. feels. good.
Utilize the iHeart approach as you learn to look internally at what you bring to a situation. Identify how or if your thoughts, feelings, fears, or past experiences are affecting you in parenting. Evaluate issues for you and your child. Learn the value of listening for what is said, not said, or noises surrounding an event to gain new understanding.
Take some time learning how to really empathize. Practice effective dialogue that helps your child feel understood and less threatened. Find out some effective ways to make adjustments in your problem solving and parenting approaches that can increase success and connection as you learn to communicate and relate.
After getting clarity on the first four steps of the iHeart approach, you will be feeling more confident to make necessary adjustments based on what your child needs. You will be ready to think about responses and how important they really are to help you learn to transform the relationship between you and your child.
Gaining clarity in the iHeart approach will help you to operate as a calm and confident parent. At this step, you are ready to put all the steps of iHeart together with the personality concepts to understand your child at a whole new level. This refreshed and renewed perspective of your child's needs will be key to helping you connect in a whole new way. It's exciting!
One way that you can manage the cost of this program is to jump in while the introductory prices are still offered. Additionally, during the workshop, I will be having a $500 scholarship giveaway. Make sure you complete the tasks or homework that can help you qualify for that drawing. If people invite others to the workshop, and we have a larger group, there may be an additional drawing for a second scholarship...so make sure you post, do your homework, and invite your friends.
Ultimately, I only want you to apply to this program if it feels right for you. So if the cost is something you feel you can't afford, you have a couple options:
1. Take a step of faith and see how God provides.
2. Wait, pray, and save until you feel the time is right.
3. Take a long hard look at your budget and see if there are any places you might cut back and save (eating out, Starbucks, clothing budget, smaller scale vacation, or even selling some things that are just taking up space in your storeroom.). I've seen some people make some big sacrifices to get the help their family needs.
When we follow God's call, we are sometimes asked to step out in faith and take action. It might also help to think of this program as an investment in your child, family, and future. It can be easy to invest in business or other things, but when family is a priority, it might mean investing there as well. This investment is one that can pay off for generations to come!
I don't. As a professional, I am offering my time and resources to help you be successful. Once you make your initial investment, you have immediate access to the whole program and library of resources. It would be impossible to take back information that was already shared or learned. And I know that you understand that. However, I am committed to helping you grow and hope you match that commitment!
I only want you to apply and purchase the program if you are committed to doing the work and learning the skills. If you are unsure about making the decision to enroll, wait.I have no doubt that when you do the work and learn the skills, you will see massive improvement and incredible transformation in you, your child, and entire family. And I want to help you get there! With that being said, if you start feeling like you are hitting roadblocks or stuck, let's communicate and work through it. I am here for you. I want to see you and your family meet your goals and make those changes that can bring your family peace, joy, calm, and connection!
I wish I could work those kinds of miracles! I can tell you that you will experience a drastic reduction in meltdowns both frequency and intensity. In fact, within just the first couple of weeks, parents have experienced a remarkable change. But it is important to remember that your child may have some needs and issues that need to be explored. Once you know more about those needs and how they relate to their emotional or mental (for some even physical) health, you will have a better idea of the future expectations you can reasonably have.
I can guarantee you that when you approach this program with an open heart, open mind, and willingness to implement the skills, you will develop skills, strategies, and mindsets that empower you in parenting your high-need child. And through the challenges and stresses, you will be able to develop a connection that builds the trust to work through hard things when or if they do occur. And that is golden!
Your journey through this program will be unique to you. The information here is intended to be self-paced and tailored to your needs. So when you have time to devour a couple of videos, you can do that...any time! And when you feel stressed and spread thin and can't get to a video, that's OK! You have access to these materials for the lifetime of this course. So you can return to videos or audios at any time. And all the coaching sessions are recorded, so if you have to miss one, you can catch it later. Your focus during the first four months will likely be learning the basic skills and developing the mindsets. The second four months, you work to start consistently implementing the iHeart approach and other skills (revisiting some of the training sessions and videos). The last four months, you are utilizing the skills and approach and can get support or help with brainstorming solutions should you hit some speedbumps. You won't need to worry about being behind. You have lots of time to get through the materials, so prioritize your time with a coach and do the other stuff as your time allows.
This is truly something that you need to think about and pray about. And I encourage you to follow God's plan for you.
I also want to ask you a couple things...
1. When will your life be less busy? We sometimes wait for the next "not busy" season and never find it. We just move from busy to busy!
2. What will happen if you don't get help with the things that are wearing you, your child, and your family down? Where will you be in a year? That answer might help you prioritize both the financial and time investment.
3. How much time could you reclaim if all the time you spent dealing with challenging behaviors, intense emotions, meltdowns, and high sensitivity could be reclaimed? How many minutes or hours a day are you spending on these issues? Many families report spending 1-3 hours a day dealing with all of that. Would it be worth it for you to have tools and strategies that could help you reclaim 1-3 hours a day or 7-20 hours a week?!
Ultimately, you need to commit when you can choose to make it work. Life might not get easier, so do it when you feel like it can benefit your family and help you become the family God would have you to be.
That is an important question. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Master's degree in Counseling. I am a licensed professional counselor, speaker, author, personality trainer, and mother of seven. I am currently working as a parent coach. And I am careful to respect those boundaries of coaching and counseling. You may already be working with a counselor, and that is fine. The work we do will be different and will be focused on your parenting, learning skills, strategies, mindsets, and approaches to help you navigate high emotions in your home, difficult routines that trip up your child, and understanding what is behind the challenging behaviors and intense emotions. I will not be functioning as a counselor, but as a parenting coach. I will not offer medical advice, and will continually remind you that if you need the care of a counselor or medical doctor, that you consult the appropriate professional for those needs.
As for experience...I am a mother of seven and have walked the difficult road of having a child who struggles with intense emotions, ADHD, anxiety, depression, a mood disorder, and even suicidal ideation. The road often felt dark, lonely, overwhelming, and heartbreaking. I struggled to find the resources, support, and understanding that our family needed. I felt quite certain that despite my best efforts, my child and family might not make it. By God's grace, we found our way. We put together pieces of my son's health and well being. We learned strategies for working with him. We figured out some key things about his brain wiring and how we might better support those needs he had. And truly God revealed this step-by-step approach with the catchy iHeart acronym when I tried to retrace the steps that helped us succeed. Now, my passion is to help other families navigate this challenging journey. I want to help you trade the emotional chaos for the calm, confident, connection that will help your child and family not just survive, but thrive! I am here to help you do the hard work and heart work of parenting!
