Hi! I’m your coach, Merrit
Hi, I’m Merrit! I’m mom to Stella (4yo), Tatum (8mo) & Dakota (13yo furbaby). As an enneagram 5 and avid researcher at heart, I dove full force into preparing for my new role as a parent when I got pregnant with my first.
I have a degree in psychology, focused on child development, so I already had a few ideas about how I wanted to do things. After having my daughter, I got to put all my knowledge to use, and settled into gentle parenting. Seeing how much of a positive impact this method had on my motherhood journey I knew I had to share.
I see so many moms struggling through the toddler years, doubting herself, wondering why it’s so hard, and following advice that ultimately harms both her child’s development and her relationship with her child. I see moms so far into survival mode that they don’t even have the capacity to pause and reflect on what kind of mom they want to be, what their parenting goals are. Every mom should know the power of Gentle Parenting, and I truly believe that it can change our whole world!
How do I know all this? Because these are the tactics I use in my own parenting. I am proof that this works because I never have to resort to yelling at or punishing my daughter, and at 3 years old I rarely ask her anything twice. She willingly follows requests, cleans up her messes, transitions to nap or bedtime, and is generally super cooperative. The core principles behind Gentle Parenting have worked wonders for my family, and I want to share these strategies with you so you can experience similar positive changes. You do not have to take outdated advice that ultimately makes your job as a mom harder!
I know what your thinking…
“won’t my child just walk all over me?”
No! But you need to know what you’re doing.
Gentle parenting =/= Permissive parenting
Gentle Parenting frequently gets confused with Permissive Parenting, a parenting style where the children have no boundaries and are allowed to act as they please no limits.
You do not want to make this mistake.
That is why is it so important to be fully informed before implementing this parenting style, so you don’t end up accidentally making things worse for yourself… and your child.
if you’ve tried Gentle Parenting techniques in the past, and it left your children running wild and you thinking it just doesn’t work, I can show you exactly where you went wrong, and I won’t let you make the same mistakes again.
You can have a peaceful household during the toddler years. IT TAKES KNOWLEDGE, PATIENCE AND CONSISTENCY, BUT I PROMISE YOU CAN DO IT! AND I AM HERE TO HELP YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
INTRODUCING GENTLE PARENTING LITTLES!
A 100% SELF-PACED DIGITAL COURSE THAT HELPS TAKE YOU FROM AN OVERWHELMED, DRAINED, REACTIVE PARENT TO…
- Knowing your parenting goals and values, and why you should have them
- Understanding the reason behind your toddler’s difficult behaviors (tantrums, hitting, etc)
- Confidently knowing how to handle any new behavior that your toddler develops
- Building a deep and strong trust and connection with your child that will last a lifetime
- Working with your child instead of feeling like you’re fighting them every step of the way
- Having a framework for parenting that can be carried into every new phase of your child’s development
I know this way of parenting works because i have seen it work first hand.
By following gentle parenting principles, my child willingly listens to requests and cooperates when asked!
Yup, you read that right. From the time she could understand me, my daughter will do what I ask of her. And a majority of the time she will do it the first time she’s asked.
There is no bribing. No threatening. No manipulating.
Just genuine respect and consideration. Because when she does express to me that she doesn’t want to do something, we work together to find a solution that works for both of us.
What most parents don’t realize is that all you really to get your child to listen to and respect you, is extend them the same consideration
HERE’S WHY GENTLE PARENTING IS ACTUALLY *MORE EFFECTIVE* THAN TRADITIONAL METHODS
I understand the overwhelming stress of motherhood, the constant worry about whether you’re doing the right thing. It’s natural to wonder if your child’s behavior is because of something you’re doing wrong or just typical toddler behavior. The fear of unintentionally causing emotional harm to your child when you lose your temper can be intense.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. It shouldn’t be this way. You have the potential to journey through motherhood with confidence in your parenting skills, knowing that you’re making the right choices for your child. You can relish every moment of parenting and cherish the experience of raising your little one.
By simply shifting your mindset and adopting a different approach to parenting, you can achieve all of this and more. Our program isn’t just about acknowledging your concerns; it’s about equipping you with practical solutions to thrive in your parenting journey.
