Parenting is the most important job you will ever have.

…and also the hardest. We feel overwhelmed, frustrated and lost.

We all have moments when we doubt ourselves, feel guilty and even wonder if we’re cut out for it at all. It may even feel like we’re the only one struggling. You may wonder,

“Am I going to mess up my child?”

You might be asking how you’re going to raise this impressionable child. You want so much to do it right.

  • How can I teach my child about life’s consequences without being harsh or punitive?

  • Do I use time-outs or will that do him harm?

  • If I don’t use punishment, how will she ever learn?

  • Do I carry my baby or will that spoil him?

  • How do I stop yelling?

  • Do I pick up my baby at night or let her cry it out?

  • How can I encourage my child without coddling?

  • Is my child normal or should I be concerned?

  • What can I do to ensure that my child makes good choices, even when I’m not there?

  • How can I get my child to listen to me more?

  • Where do I find like-minded people who are encouraging rather than judgmental?

  • What if my spouse and I have different approaches?

  • What do I do about the whining? The constant negotiating?

  • How do I stay calm when it feels like my child is pushing every one of my buttons?

You’re not alone. I’ve heard these questions from so many of you. You’ve told me you’re tired of fighting to get your son’s teeth brushed. You’ve told me you’re tired of cajoling them to get out the door on time. You’ve told me you’re just plain tired.

“We’d like to stop having to constantly use negotiation/threats/time outs to get our child to do things!”

“My child seems to want to fight with me. What’s going on?”

“I’ve talked and even shouted till the cows come home and nothing is working. Help.”

Sometimes parents ask me how others seem to make it look so easy and they wonder,

“What am I missing?!”

Or maybe you were raised one way and now you’re looking for answers to parent differently, but can’t find others who’ve ‘been there and done that’ (and who have the awesome, empowered kids to show for it.)

I know what that’s like. I used to struggle on my own, trying to figure it all out. Everyone told me to not to ‘spoil her’. To ‘let her cry’ when she was a baby. To isolate her when she made the inevitable toddler mistakes. Then to show her ‘I was in charge’ during the preschooler stage. This all went against every parental instinct I had. This sweet child is a person who needs my guidance, not harsh treatment.

But I had so many questions about how to actually do things differently. I didn’t know who to listen to. The advice I was getting was often contradictory. A lot of the suggestions seemed downright disrespectful toward children. “Really, I should make her sit alone when she’s upset?!” I usually like company when I’m having a hard time. Wouldn’t my daughter be the same?

There are answers for you, too.

And once you learn them, you find that the good days outweigh the bad. The moments of peace and joy and laughter are more frequent. And the connection between you and your child keeps getting stronger. Suddenly, you realize that you’re working as a team. You’re facing any new challenges, together, with confidence.

Instead of spending hours searching and reading blog posts to find answers, or getting misleading advice from every stranger or great-aunt with an opinion or just trying to “go it alone” and hoping for the best…

Imagine spending only 60 seconds posting a message to our community forum

And getting real-life answers from like-minded parents IN MINUTES

Or notes of encouragement from PARENTS IN THE SAME BOAT

How much time, energy and worry would that save you?

What would a quick-read guide that not only answers your immediate question, but sets you up for handling your next struggle with more ease SAVE YOU???

It is possible.

I’m living proof and so are my clients. Let me share with you the secrets I’ve spent years researching, testing and teaching.

Alison Smith Coaching

Alison And Her Family

Hi, I’m Alison Smith.

I’m a parenting coach and a mom to two amazing kids. I wasn’t always confident in my parenting though, I spent my early years struggling. I couldn’t find a happy medium on the spectrum between authoritarian and permissive parenting styles.

5:36 min

Want to hear something crazy?

It took me several years to finally realize there isn’t a happy medium…because somebody always won and somebody always lost. And because a win-lose answer is simply unacceptable to me, I kept searching.

What I discovered is that the solution lies off that spectrum completely.

It’s actually possible to create a win-win relationship with kids!

And that relationship is the key to the whole kingdom.

Alison Smith Coaching

An amazing bonus is that I also realized that I’d found my calling. I have to help others learn the solution, too.

If you’re willing (and I truly hope you are) I want to share how you too can shift your relationship to a win-win.

How you can adjust your language and strategies to gain more cooperation and connection.

And how you can change your mindset so you feel calmer and more confident. Who wouldn’t want to model that for their kids?

I’ve created a space for parents to learn how.

Parents working with Alison went from feeling alone and unsure about their parenting, to feeling connected and relieved to find strategies that work for them.

There are so many uncertainties in parenting but you don’t have to go through it on your own!

This community is filled with parents who have invested in their parenting. You know that they are committed and invested in growth. In my experience, the kinds of parents who want the best for their kids are generally a pretty outstanding bunch of kind, generous people.

Plus a lot of your fellow members (as well as the visiting experts) have “been there, done that” so they can give you some great insights on how to navigate through your challenges & roadblocks, so you don’t have to go through the trial & error process yourself. This saves you precious time and a lot of uncertainty.

My team and I will be in and out of the group on a daily basis, directing you to resources and exercises that directly relate to your current challenges or even giving you on-the-spot ideas.

I know there are a lot of other parenting groups out there, but in my experience many of them are filled with other newbies, with the best of intentions of course, who are all trying to find the answers themselves.

Or worse, they’re all sitting at home just reading posts, wishing they felt safe enough to share and instead are waiting for others to ask the tough questions.

Almost every free group out there is run by good-hearted volunteers who just don’t have the time to dedicate to helping you when you need it, as much as they wish they could.

And in some groups the internet trolls sneak in. They have nothing better to do than stir up trouble and make you question yourself. Who needs that?!

  • Access to a whole community of compassionate and engaged parents who are committed to supporting each other in this group in a powerful way.
