What are parents saying about this class?

“This class made me see my triggers more clearly. It also gave me the word “easy” so when I’m triggered I can remember breathe deeply and look for solutions that make the situation easier. And when I still mess up, this class reminded me to forgive myself for being human and begin again. Class with Meghan makes me think about growing my relationships with my kids with more love. Thanks for making this hard work a bit easier.”

– Nancy, mother of two

“If I could convince every parent to use Meghan Leahy, I would. Her smart, savvy and non-judgmental approach helped us tackle issues — big and small — we’d been struggling with for years. We’re better parents today thanks to her.”

– Alicia, mother of two

“Meghan helped me put the joy back in parenting. She laid out a simple parenting plan that was easy to implement and made a huge improvement in our son’s behavior.”

– Jennifer, mother of two

FAQ’s

Who is this class for?

Any parent, grandparent, nanny, or caregiver who has a neurotypical child between the ages of 2.5-3 and 11.

Can I write to you outside of class about questions and concerns?

The best way to handle questions and concerns is to use your journal, online class, or private Facebook Page to begin to sort through your questions. If you feel like you need a coaching session, e-mail me and we will set it up, ASAP.

Do I have to do every step perfectly and when it is introduced in class?

NO! You may read some of the steps and activities in class and think, “hmmm, I don’t need this right now.” That is totally fine. I only want you to take what you want and practice the techniques you want and need. There is always time and space to try the other practices. You can return to it whenever you feel called to it. Remember, the steps never close.
