Foster your child's curiosity with mindful parenting

• ease & joy •

and discover all the tools you’ll ever need to parent on your own terms.

(without losing your patience, giving in, or worrying that you’re messing up your child.)

You may already know that the most important period in your child’s life is their first 6 years.

What they experience during these few short, precious years sets the stage for the rest of their life.

Being a parent may be the most crucial role you’ll ever play – not just in your life, but in your child’s as well.

You only have one chance to get this right.

And when it feels like you’re parenting without an instruction manual or a guidebook, this can seem like an impossible task – especially on top of everything else you have going on in your day-to-day.

I’m here to give you that guidebook – and help you eliminate the stress, confusion, and uncertainty that comes with being a parent.

I’ll show you how to apply the proven principles behind Positive Discipline, Mindful Parenting, RIE, and the Montessori Method to help your child blossom to their fullest potential.

But you need to know why so many parents get this wrong in the first place – and what you can do to solve it permanently.

WHY ‘POSITIVE PARENTING’ IS SO HARD TO GET RIGHT

The unfortunate reality is that most parents abandon their efforts to parent with intention when the going gets tough.

Many lose their patience, resort to rewards and punishments, and use coercive discipline tactics.

If this is you, it’s not your fault – because society at large doesn’t do a great job at showing us a better way.

But without a deeper understanding of a child’s motivations, or knowing your own triggers, most parents are stuck reacting from a place of fear instead of responding mindfully.

You fall victim to social pressure, unrealistic expectations, and your own childhood experiences (I know I did as a new parent!).

And this can cause permanent damage to you and your child.

That’s because we only get a few years to teach our children the values and character traits that will lead to a happy and healthy life.

And this all hinges on creating and maintaining a trusting relationship with our child.

The moment you start yelling or punishing, your child goes into self-defense mode and the connection begins to shatter.

The older your child gets, the more effort it takes to rebuild that broken connection.

Media, peers, and cultural influences all vie for your child’s attention – and they don’t always have the best intentions. 

This means your relationship literally can’t afford to veer off course.

It’s one of the few things in life that you have to get right the first time.

The good news is that there’s a time-tested and scientifically backed approach to mindful parenting that ensures you build (and maintain) a strong relationship with your child.

Voila Montessori - The Parenting School

And it’s entirely possible to implement even if:

#1

You’ve already fallen into a rut of yelling, bribing, and punishing with your child (yes, you CAN fix it if you apply the proven and powerful principles that I’ll show you).

#2

You weren’t raised in the best environment (or never had this kind of relationship with your parents).

#3

You think you have to use time-outs and punishments because children only learn through experiencing consequences (there’s actually a much better way).

#4

You feel too tired and overwhelmed to be a mindful parent (the truth is that being a mindful parent is actually easier than what you’re doing now).

#5

You think that the “terrible two’s” and “threenage” years are inescapable and you just have to tough it out (not so – you just have to learn how to speak your child’s language).

 

The reality is that there’s still a golden opportunity to make amends, rebuild your connection, and achieve the trusting relationship you’ve always wanted…

…So that in turn, you set your child up for the life you KNOW they deserve – all while feeling less stress, more joy, and more confidence in your everyday home life.

INTRODUCING

voila montessori e-course mindful parent

Raising curious resilient children while minimizing the overwhelm

I’ve taken everything I’ve learned from my extensive background – including two AMI Montessori degrees, my Positive Discipline certifications, a decade of experience as a parenting guide, and 25 plus  years as a parent – and channeled it into a comprehensive, step-by-step implementation program that not only helps you understand how your child thinks and sees the world, but also gives you powerful tools you can immediately apply to transform your relationship. 

The Parenting School isn’t so much a training program as it is a lifestyle implementation program.

Yes, you’ll learn the theory and strategies to parent with intention, but more importantly, I’ll guide you to create your personalized, step-by-step parenting guidebook that leaves nothing out and takes nothing for granted as you put all the tools you’ll learn into practice.

The end result: An incredibly clear long-term roadmap ready to guide you and your child towards a more mindful and connected relationship…one that will serve as a solid foundation for the rest of your life.

Now, I’m going to let you in on the

Secret to Parenting Success

What I’ve realized over the years is that the main reason most parents struggle to maintain a nurturing, peaceful, and loving relationship with their child, despite having nothing but the best intentions…

…is because they don’t have all the tools to help them do this. Yet.

But it’s completely possible to quickly, easily, and naturally step into your role as the most positive influence your child will ever have in their life.

It doesn’t have to feel like you’re guessing.

It doesn’t have to feel like you’re constantly waging a war with your child.

And it doesn’t require you to make an overhaul in your parenting approach (in fact, it can be accomplished through simple tweaks).

You CAN feel confident that you’re taking the best possible steps to nurture your child at all times (even if you currently have a hectic schedule and a chaotic home life).

The key ingredient to all of this is to implement the scientifically backed principles of positive parenting and  learn how to consistently parent with intention.

And with your permission, that’s what I’d like to show you how to do.

What parents asked before signing up for The Parenting School

Q1: How can I find the time to attend The Parenting School if I barely have time to shower?

The Parenting School was developed BY busy parents, FOR busy parents. I know your time is your most precious resource, so I’ve designed each lesson to be digestible, without complicated jargon or unrealistic expectations. Each lesson is available as an audio download that you can take with you so you can listen any time, anywhere.

Q2: Won’t this be like all the other parenting courses out there?

The Parenting School is the only course of its kind that helps you create a personalized guidebook adapted to your family’s values and priorities. It’s also the only program that shows you how to incorporate the timeless wisdom of Montessori and Positive Discipline into your modern lifestyle. Unlike other courses that focus on one aspect of parenting, The Parenting School provides a comprehensive paradigm shift in parenting.

Q3: Doesn’t having a Montessori home require a big financial investment?

Not with my approach.  In The Parenting School, I show you how to transform the toys, furniture, and space you already have into a calmer, more organized, and more functional environment for your entire family.  I also teach you what toys best support your child’s development, so you can invest with confidence as your child grows.

Q4: I was always told that parenting is just plain hard, but you make it sound so easy. What’s the catch?

There’s no catch.  Yes, parenting can be insanely frustrating… If you don’t have the right perspective and tools.  The Parenting School makes mindful parenting doable because it gives you a completely new understanding of your child’s motivations. My course also harnesses the power of a simplified home environment and gives you the language you need to respond confidently to any parenting challenge. Perspective + Tools = Empowered Parents!

Q5: What does a week at The Parenting School look like?

From the time you sign-up you’ll have access to a new module every 7 days, which includes several lessons and additional goodies. You’ll have plenty of time to process the information at your own pace (remember, the audio downloads let you listen any time, anywhere). You can post questions in the Virtual Village (our private Facebook community page) anytime, and I’ll be answering them daily. Every other Thursday, you’ll be invited to attend our bi-monthly interactive mentoring group call so you can share your successes and get the guidance you need to succeed.  I’ll also be hosting a Facebook Live conversation every other Friday in our private Facebook community, to make sure all your questions are answered before the weekend. When you enroll in The Parenting School, you’ll receive lifetime access so you can revisit all the modules at any time.

Q6: What if I start the course but decide it’s not for me?

I have complete confidence in the power of The Parenting School to transform your life and improve your relationship with your child. However, if you start the course, move through the sections of your personalized guidebook, and decide that The Parenting School is not right for you, simply let us know at support@voilamontessori.com within 14 days, show us you’ve kept up with your guidebook, and we’ll refund your investment.

Q7: Can you remind me of everything I’m getting when I sign up today?

Yes! When you sign up today for The Parenting School, you’ll be enrolling in a lifelong journey to positively transform your family relationships. In addition to lesson-packed modules that can be accessed in video and audio format, I’ll provide you with weekly extras (including articles and resource guides). 

I’ll also walk you through creating a personalized guidebook tailored to your family values and priorities. You’ll have access to weekly group mentoring calls and Facebook Live conversations. In our private Facebook community you can ask questions and share successes with like-minded parents. And you’ll stay inspired throughout by watching interviews with child development leaders.

Are you ready to stop losing your patience and start parenting mindfully with Montessori and more?  If your answer is “Yes!” then I can’t wait to meet you inside The Parenting School.

Parenting was never meant to be done alone!
