for parents with children of ALL ages because you never stop being a parent
IT'S TIME TO TRY A DIFFERENT WAY
There's an easier way to bring calm, connection, fewer tantrums and less anxiety to your your relationship with your children and partner.
Here’s the secret that most parents don’t know when it comes to having calmer, happier, stronger children…
More than anything else, it’s:
✓ YOUR state of calm
✓ YOUR ability to not be triggered
✓ YOUR ability to manage your own emotions
that determines how a tantrum or meltdown is resolved, how resistance and anxiety is soothed and how your children can find stability amongst the chaos.
The key to a calmer family home lies in understanding your emotional triggers and how to regulate your nervous system throughout the day. The more you're able to check in with yourself, your stress levels, your reactivity and come back to a regulated state, the less likely you're going to tip into a 'fight or flight' stress response, and that means less reactivity, shouting and family disconnection.
I know, it sounds almost too simple to be true…
But I’ve seen this work time and again with my young students, the parents I've worked with, and also with how I navigate my relationship with my own children.
When you know how to self-regulate your nervous system, then supporting your dysregulated child and co-regulating with them becomes easier and you’ll transform your home life for all of you.
The Parent Reset Program supports you to increase awareness, develop emotional literacy skills, learn calm down strategies, and support your child's big emotions through co-regulation
PSA: Okay, let's get really honest:
✓ Your children are going to have tantrums
✓ They are going to talk back
✓ They will resist your suggestions
✓ They won't meet all of your expectations
✓ They will have anxiety, panic and fear
And you need to accept this is part of modern parenting, even if it wasn’t okay for you when you were growing up.
But you don't have to meet them at their dysregulated state.
In this program, you learn that parenting does NOT have to be all about:
frustration, shouting, disagreements, pressure, competition, lack of time, confusion, emotional rollercoasters, exhaustion...
You get to learn a new way, so you can teach a new way!
Hi, I'm Amanda
When I stared my practice as a clinical Nutritionist, I loved working with the body, especially the nervous system. My personal and clinical practice gave me a strong indication that the nervous system runs the show: physically, mentally, emotionally. It dictates your choices, and learning how to pay attention to your 'state' i.e. are you regulated in 'rest and digest' or dysregulated in 'fight or flight' can support you to maintain calm and grounded when your child is experiencing their big emotions. But how do you maintain that calm, regulated state in moments of activation because parenting is constant activation?!
I learned that thinking my way through it didn't work. I needed to actually train the body & mind together to cultivate the skill of self-regulation. And that's when I took my clinical practice deeper, so I could learn and teach nervous system regulation to parents because modern world children don't need control and coercion for emotional regulation, they need compassion and collaboration and you can only offer that from a calm, regulated state.
I changed myself because I knew parenting would only get easier if I made it get easier and not from blaming my four year old and her inability to regulate her emotions.
I started my own personal practice in nervous system regulation which included mindfulness, meditation and somatic work. This brought much needed clarity and stability to my life. I also trained to be a trauma-informed Mindfulness & Somatic Coach and I have worked with thousands of children and hundreds of adults across the world.
All of this helped me as a parent, 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!
"Amanda is without doubt a true inspiration. The Parent Reset Program has given me the gift of self awareness around how I choose to react to my children and their behaviour. It’s about personal growth which leads to overall growth for the family unit. Do not hesitate to take this course. It is what the 21st century family needs!"
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 regulation 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.
