DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
You really want to get these childhoods right, but... you have a short fuse.
All the posts on theories are great, but it doesn't seem to translate in the moment.
It feels like you know enough about positive parenting to know when you're doing it wrong.
Parenting books are collecting dust on your nightstand, you may have even bought a course... but even a pandemic won't change the fact that they're half-finished.
You're likely trying to parent differently than your parents, so you're learning things like emotion regulation + boundaries for the first time while trying to teach them to your kids...
...WHICH IS KIND OF LIKE PUTTING TOGETHER A CAR WHILE IT'S SPEEDING DOWN THE HIGHWAY.
You struggle to stick to any type of consistent routine or habit.
In these *unprecedented* times... life feels out of control and borderline hopeless.
Your strong-willed child's personality is relentless + exhausting.
How do you get your kids to cooperate WITHOUT resorting to threats + bribes all the time?!
If ONLY you could reduce the tantrums + eliminate these power struggles... you'd feel better.
YOU'RE NOT ALONE.
IMAGINE NOT BEING ABLE TO REMEMBER THE LAST TIME YOU YELLED AT YOUR KIDS.
- Feeling connected to your *wild* child after their tantrum because you responded with such calm, loving composure.
- Enjoying time together with your child without constant chatter in your head, whining, + behavior struggles
- Really understanding the *why* [and HOW] behind more positive approaches so you feel ready for whatever your child throws your way.
- Effortlessly moving through care routines without argument
Imagine being told you're a GOOD MOM. . .
. . . and *actually* believing it!
ALL OF THIS [+ MORE] IS POSSIBLE WHEN YOU PROVE TO YOURSELF YOU'RE A PARENT THAT INVESTS IN MORE THAN INFORMATION...
BUT TRUE TRANSFORMATION.
I was worried about the cost and that I wouldn't follow through with what I learned.
I was battling it ALL with my strong-willed 4-year-old. Lots of yelling from both of us. No consistency on my end.
NOW- My sweet loving boy is coming back! He's offering me random kisses and "I love you mama" again.
I have been looking forward to the Zooms every week.
We still have our hard moments but I'm able to breathe and re-group before losing my cool.
Everything that has come out of the last 11 weeks has been worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY.
Our household is a completely different household than it was in September.
Being that $ was what really, really held me back at the time, you just have to look past that and know that you're investing in your future for years to come.

EVEN AS AN *EXPERT*, PARENTING WAS SO MUCH HARDER THAN I ANTICIPATED.
For me this looked like...
- getting blown away by how different my daughters could be
- coming to terms with a temper I didn't know I had
- not knowing how to get my 2nd to listen to very simple directions without a 0-60 reaction
- struggling to figure out how to help my husband understand and implement the parenting tools I was learning without feeling like I was nagging
- Learning the tools I needed to be okay when life was definitely NOT okay

FEEL LIKE YOU KNOW
WHAT YOU'RE DOING!
Prior to joining, my house was filled with aggression, defiance, back-talking, disrespect, and sibling rivalry.
Finances was the biggest reason I was hesitant to join.
NOW- I control MY response better, which in turn helps THEM stay more calm. It was a huge eye-opener that I am very grateful for.
I really love CALM + KIND references. 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 group!
is for you if...
- You identify as a mom, currently caring for a strong-willed 2 - 7-year-old.
- You find yourself bribing, threatening + yelling more than you'd like.
- You feel overwhelmed by their BIG emotions + feel helpless or confused by how to react.
- You're not afraid of self-development + have experienced the value of therapy or coaching in the past.
- You've tried long enough on your own + know you need support + accountability to make your intentions your reality
- You need more positivity, inspiration, + motivation in your life + are willing to share it with some new friends!
The crash course + community might not be for you if…
- Your youngest is older than 8.
- You need to get on the same page as your partner + write your Family Business Plan
- You need individualized, 1:1 support that group Q & A calls won't suffice. I offer that too!
It's definitely not for you if...
- You're not ready to own your part + bring an open mind.
- You are going to bring a negative, judgmental vibe to the group.
"Wow, do I really need this? Or can I figure this out on my own?"
I also had a new baby at the time and I thought, "I'm not going to be sleeping, how am I going to have the time to figure this out?"
But on the other hand, I have this four-year-old that was a sweet boy, and is now a monster.
I don't know what I'm doing. I don't know what's going on.
NOW, I know.
NOW I have the tools.
I know what my triggers are. I know what my kids' triggers are. I know the steps to take, the mindset I need to have and the perspective for both myself and my kids to know what they're dealing with and how we can move forward.
I know I'm in control now.
I was seeing tendencies that I told myself I didn't want to be from my own personal childhood. I knew that I could be better, and I just needed these steps to help me be better.
Now I have the tools and the confidence to do this the way I want to do it and how to achieve the end goal I want!
BY THE END OF THIS PROGRAM, YOU WILL...
- Significantly extend your patience.
- Find clarity + confidence in your ability to use positive discipline strategies effectively.
- Empower your strong-willed child to feel seen, known, + in-control in your home.
- Find answers to behavior problems + share ideas with the support of the community of like-minded moms.
- FINALLY be able to give yourself the grace you deserve!
"WELL WORTH THE TIME.
WELL WORTH THE MONEY."
...ready to be next?
"It's difficult to be transparent with your children's behaviors sometimes. And your own! I was honestly concerned she would judge me.
Danielle is the best cheerleader. I have a tendency to be down on myself as a mom and she has this amazing ability to see the positives for you when you can't see them yourself. Everyone should have Danielle has a cheerleader!
The yelling has absolutely decreased and we have more tools to work through problem behaviors."
"We felt like we had tried everything in our knowledge and power and weren't getting anywhere. Our daughter was having several meltdowns a day. She would go from 0-60 over the littlest thing and once a fit started there was no calming her down. We were losing our patience with her and with each other far more often than we would like.
The amount of changes that we have seen are too numerous to count. We always knew that our daughter was strong-willed, but now we know exactly what that means and how to help her in everyday things. The daily fits have decreased and although they still occur we feel like we have the strategies and are more equipped to handle them in a more effective and positive way than before."
We have learned to understand her and extend our own patience. We now feel like we are able to understand our children in a way we couldn't quite grasp before.
"I was worried that my parenting style, techniques would be judged. I wasn't sure if I "really" needed the advice, was it that bad...I don't have bad kids, so was this really necessary.
When we consistently practice what we've been taught the behavior change has been remarkable!
I really do appreciate Danielle's parenting viewpoint & mindset on childhood behavior. She's completely non-judgmental & I really felt like I was connecting with a good friend after the 1st session!"
“I loved having a professional, caring third party person to bring our parenting struggles to. Sometimes the day to day feels so FRUSTRATING, and especially this year, SO OVERWHELMING, that I would just feel so disheartened and like I just wasn't doing anything right. Talking to Danielle always felt so reassuring, that I'd be able to go back in the next day feeling like I was doing the best I could do (and that is was enough) rather than hearing this constant nagging voice in my head saying that I was a bad mom or failing my children."

My biggest hesitation to starting a group like this was honestly my own pride and admitting I needed help. Parenting is such a personal thing. I thought like, it was really kind of a shame to think I'm not doing this perfectly naturally, and that it's something I needed help with.
For the longest time, it's kind of been just, like, "oh, everything's alright!" even though I knew that I needed help.
Now it's like, "okay, I have these proven things that I can use".
And I have my list I can go back to if I need to, but just the community and encouragement and support has really been the best thing for me.
HOW DOES THE COURSE WORK?
WHEN WILL THE Q & A CALLS TAKE PLACE?
WHAT IF I CAN'T MAKE THE Q & A CALLS?
HOW MUCH TIME IS THIS GOING TO TAKE OUT OF MY WEEK / ADD TO MY SCHEDULE?
HOW DO I KNOW IF THIS WILL WORK FOR ME?
WHAT PARENTING PERSPECTIVE ARE YOU COMING FROM?
CAN'T I JUST FIGURE THIS ALL OUT ON MY OWN?
CAN I JUST TAKE THIS NEXT TIME?
WHY IS IT PRICED THE AMOUNT IT IS?
DO YOU OFFER REFUNDS?
HOW LONG WILL I HAVE ACCESS TO THE MEMBERS AREA?
I WANT TO DO THIS BUT I'M SCARED...
I HAVE MORE QUESTIONS!
"My SIL witnessed an averted tantrum and was IMPRESSED!"
You wouldn't have scrolled this far if you didn't feel this could truly help you.
If you're struggling now, you'll be struggling 3 months from now.
And if you're struggling... it's for a reason.
Not one mom has regretted the investment, but every single one wishes they would have done it sooner.
Would you spend this $ on a weekend getaway but not give your child the gift of a patient parent?
You can't live like this much longer.
You can have this money back in your bank account tomorrow.
You cannot get this time with your child back.
The ripple effect of intervening now can prevent years of therapy down the road and directly affect their relationship with their kids.
...if you feel like you go back & forth between discipline strategies & none of them are really working...
...if your sanity seems to wane constantly and it's affecting your mental health + your marriage...
...if you struggle to stay calm & be the parent you want to be...
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
ASK FOR HELP.
IT STARTS WITH YOU.
I was the person who listened to every kind of parenting podcast you can find trying to find all the answers.
But none of it made a difference.
None of it was sticking with me the way this course did - the way it was laid out week by week.
Building that knowledge and using the tools from one week before moving into the next week and the short audios, instead of hour-long videos that I couldn't find time to listen to...
those short audios, they were sweet and to the point and they made sense.
Yeah, my kid does that.
Yeah, I do talk to my kid that way.
Yeah, that does make sense. I wouldn't want to be talking to you that
They all just clicked and then you move on to the next week and you build on
another tool and it just sticks with you.
It just is able to be implemented into your daily life. Plus, then being able to ask you when I was struggling... "What do I do?"
That's made such a difference for me.

I wondered if this would be worth the money. My husband wasn't on board.
We were fighting tantrums, fights with siblings for my attention, lack of patience and consistency from my side, and lack of confidence that I'm doing everything right.
NOW? HUGE CHANGE.
Thanks to Danielle's scripts, specific tools, an abundance of examples from real life and input from other moms (what they struggle with, what works for them and what not)...
I feel a HUGE boost in my confidence as a parent.
It's easier to calm her down and she is not getting to that "no return" stage that often.
I'm much more calm and kind during times of big emotions.
Even my sister noticed how calm, confident I've become and how much more balanced my child is now.
I am not new to gentle parenting.
I was following other content creators on the topic for a while and trying to implement those tools in our family, but it seemed too hard and unrealistic to be consistent without having a base, a stable foundation and clear understanding that the Wholeheartedly CALM course gives.
Now everything makes so much more sense and is much more doable, and consistency is reachable.
SUPER GRATEFUL I decided to join this course - worth every penny I paid to see the real results in my family in less than one month.
Now my two older sisters who have 4 kids each are asking MY advice about parenting!
"It's not something that's just dumped on your lap.
You're learning about each tool, why they work, how they work, and then implementing them before moving on to the next so it just becomes part of your daily life and your habits.
You may not be perfect by the end of the course but it's knowledge that you're building on and keeping with you.
And yeah, that money is definitely worth it to have that relationship again with my son and to feel confident and capable as a mother."
1000% worth the investment.
I'm investing in my children's future and they're totally worth it."
