Connection is the foundation of health relationships. Join me for online training on how to build connection between you and your child
how to build connection with your child
Hi, I'm Amanda
Parenting my two young girls in the early years was hard. I was lost. I was alone. I was distracting and numbing with substances and scrolling because the mental load was too heavy and my marriage was breaking down.
As a clinical Nutritionist, I loved working with the body, especially the nervous system. My personal and clinical practice gave me a strong understanding of nervous system triggers and how to reset it in moments of activation, but parenting is constant activation and I knew I needed more. My children needed a better leader.
And then, I found a different way.
Six years ago, I made a life changing choice. I got sober after decades of substance abuse and began my personal practice in mindfulness, meditation and movement. This brought much needed clarity and stability to my life, after feeling lost and alone for so long.
I changed myself because I knew parenting would only get easier if I made it get easier and not from blaming my six year old and her inability to regulate her emotions.
I had a therapist, teachers, coaches and a dedicated practice. I was training my mind, working with my nervous system and healing my emotional wounds. All of this helped me to reparent myself, so I could be present with my children and see them for who they uniquely are, tantrums, talk back and everything. This is a life changer!
“I felt more in control as I have something I can turn to when I feel overwhelmed or stressed. This has had a positive affect on my responses with my children, my husband and my work role. Ive felt I've been able to connect more and I’ve felt warmer, more loving feelings more of the time.”
The Parent Reset is for you if:
You've noticed that shouting at your children doesn’t actually make them stop acting up, and doesn't make YOU feel good either.
You're seeing your parents in how you’re parenting and you’re ready to learn a different way so you don’t turn out like them!
You're stressed, tired, feeling worn down and not completely yourself.
You constantly argue with your partner about parenting and domestic duties.
When your child doesn’t listen, you use consequences and/or rewards to get them to follow suit.
You're a people pleaser and struggle to set boundaries.
You distract and over-plan yours and your child’s life so you aren’t actually able to be present and enjoy the moment
You get emotionally overwhelmed and experience anxiety, irritability and are a harsh critic of yourself, projecting some of these emotions to others.
You're frustrated with cycles of yours and your children’s behavior and want to support yourself and them in a more meaningful way.
You just generally need to make change in your life!
You Will Learn:
Exactly how to recognize when your body and mind are overwhelmed
And what to do in-the-moment to bring calm instead of rupture
How to recognize when your own emotions and stress state are influencing your children
And how to flip it so you’re influencing them positively!
How to train your nervous system and mind to pause before reacting
Using simple mindfulness and somatic tools to support present moment awareness and emotional regulation.
How to calm your children
Not through the words you say or by raising your voice, but by connecting with them on the level of your body, ie. your nervous system = co-regulation.
Why your children behave in certain ways
And how to recognize a tantrum or meltdown AND interrupt it before it happens or support it to bring resolve.
"Thank you so much for the sessions we had. I think it made a huge difference to me and my daughter. It felt easy to trust you and to be honest and open. I also came to understand that it’s important for me to make mistakes as a parent and to be able to apologize to my daughter for them as she would otherwise not understand that mistakes are OK."
