“But MegAnne, I would rather just wait until my children grow out of it.”
Oh yes, I hear you—common myth is that age dictates behavior. Well, I’m going to share with you a truth: age has nothing to do with behavior, skill, consistency or connection. If it did, I would be just like Beyonce. By the age of 34 she was a millionaire and sold 17.8 million albums. Unfortunately for me, that’s not the case. There are functions to our behaviors, and learning how to understand what our children are communicating and how to respond in a way that really encourages the skills we want them to have when they are adults is the not-so-secret secret.
It’s really just a question of what skills would you like to see in your family, when your children are adults?
“My partner will never go for this.”
My number two objection: the partner. Getting on the same page as your partner is always a top priority. What I’ve seen is that there is often a “good cop” or permissive parent and a “bad cop” or authoritarian parent. They often find themselves on some sort of teeter totter. The “good cop” plays the kind role of nurturing any tears, and the “bad cop” plays the role of enforcer often using fear and punishments. Finding the balance together is really where the magic is—the balance of kind and firm. I will never forget what one stern looking, quiet Dad shared in a group:
“I hadn’t realized that my daughters were scared of me, all the time. It wasn’t until I started practicing getting on their level and listening first that my daughter looked at me and said ‘I’m glad scary Daddy is gone.’ That shook me. I’m glad ‘Scary Daddy’ is gone too.” - Shawn, Dad of 2 daughters.
“I just don’t have the time to do this stuff.”
The best part of this program is that each module will provide HIGHLY actionable steps that you can implement IMMEDIATELY. Everyday situations become the practice for the skills you’re learning. Outside of the module and group coaching, your life becomes the perfect arena to practice all the skills. No extra time needed! And the time you'll earn back is striking. No more nagging, bribing, tantruming, power struggling, crying, screaming, yelling—all these icky things—GONE! You’ll not only get time back, but you’re lifeforce will be recharged!
Imagine actually ENJOYING the time you have with your children.
“But the price!”
I get it; sometimes we have to prioritize different things in our lives. I aim for this investment to be a one-time investment. I want you to think about the toys you’ve bought and they never played with, the time spent out of work meeting with teachers, the objects in your home that have been broken then replaced, the birthday parties and vacations that all ended up in screaming and crying because something wasn’t going right. I want you to think about how amazing the future will be when everyone can work in flow with each other, growing stronger and more connected, allowing everyone to truly ENJOY everything your family invests in.
“The class was worth so much more than what we paid, this gave me my family back. I can’t put a price on that.”- Laura, Mom of 3
For reals though, this is what my alumni are sharing!
“Our battle ground was always dinner time. Our youngest daughter would get up from the table, each-and-every-night. Setting off this chain of events that would go on for at least 45 minutes and end when I blew up and screamed that I was throwing all her toys away when she fell asleep. It was exhausting, we couldn’t go our or invite anyone over for dinner- because this was our routine. I just didn’t know it. Through working with MegAnne I learned how to identify the annoying behavior as attention seeking and learned a new approach to respond with empowerment. I remember the first time it was put to the test- it was taco night and the trigger was avocado. I remember that night so clearly- it was the first night I felt like and adult and instead of dropping to my 3 year olds level, I raised her to mine. This work will change your entire life.” - Sara, Mom of 2
“Taking my 2 year old daughter our in public would be just the thing that would send me into a fit. I would feel sweaty and nervous- even going out of my way to avoid taking her out. I just knew that she would make a demand and I would say “no” and it would just all go to shit there. It was somewhere between week 3 and 4 where I was in Target and realized that we were all having a great time. It wasn’t until we got into the car that my husband commented that it was the first time we had all gone to the store with out tears. Holy shit balls, it was amazing. I felt like a superhero- ERRAND MOM CAPABLE OF LIMITS AND BOUNDARIES!” - Emily, Mom of 1
“Growing up as I did, it was my way of the highway. I thought my children just listened better to me. Uncovering that they feared me was a huge eye-opener. It wasn’t that they just listened to me, they didn’t talk to me. At 8 and 10 I thought they just played by themselves and didn’t need me. This was just my wife’s problem. Until learning that they weren’t sharing with me because they retreated away from me. Learning to use other tools saved my relationship with my children. And more importantly I am now proud to model what a “real man” looks like for my son and my daughter.” Jeff, Dad of 2
Okay, I know what you’re thinking
“What does this parenting voodoo magic cost?”
The mistake that most parents make is thinking they will just buy one more book, watch one more youtube video, talk to one more friend- and in the end what happens is that they take the sllllllllow road to weed out all the strategies that don’t work for them. Costing them more time and money in the end. Even worse- they spend more time in strife and struggle with their family.
I’m not saying it can’t be done- but I just help you get there FASTER and with more support.
Outside of me living with you, which will cost no less that $10,000 a weekend (which I mean, if you can afford that- I’m there! Hope you have a pool!) this program is designed to deliver the most value in the quickest amount of time. Let’s dig in, work out the kinks, and get everything working smoothly together- in a safe and supported environment!
This is your chance to jump feet first and let me catch you- together we will get everything back on track! The next class is set to start in January and this price is only valid for that class! We will make a trade. You give me 2 payments of $399 (or save $50 with a single payment of $747!) and I will be on your team for life!
Plus I have a 365 Day Money Back Guarantee. If you’ve put in the work for 365 days and nothing is still working, you’ll have a choice I’ll come stay the weekend or you can get your money back!
