"The whole system is awesome! This course provided a roadmap to help me navigate the pressure of raising a self-sufficient child. I've been looking for a practical guide like this!"

Are you tired of feeling...
Hopeless in calming your child's strong emotions?
Exhausted from trying to do way too many things?
Unsure about how to handle your anger because you don't want to yell?
Like youcan't say no because you'll disappoint the people around you?
Ashamed when you can't follow-through with making kids do simple chores?
You don't deserve to restbecause something always needs to be done?
Overwhelmed from the amount on your plateand no one stepping in to help?
Inconsistent with consequences and discipline?
Disappointed when you can't control your own emotions and reactions?
Invisible when everyone's needs get put before your own?
Like you're "too nice" and your family takes advantage of that?
Alone because no one else seems to get it?
You're NOT Alone!
If you're feeling like you can't ever do enough and all the strategies you try aren't working, it's not your fault! Society tells us that we have to be a certain way as parents - completely selfless and for our kids to be perfectly behaved. Which leaves us feeling ashamed when we can't measure up to that ideal.
But, what you should have been taught, is how to form that strong relationship with your children and how to truly measure your success as a parent.
So here's the fix...
It's NOT about using the "right" strategy or finding the "right" consequence to behavior.
Rather, it's improving communication within your family so that you're able to solve problems together without the anger, defensiveness or shame.
When you know how to communicate your own needs AND work together with your parenting partner and kids, you create a calm & happy home.
HI THERE! I'M JOANN CROHN, M.ED.
And I want to help you improve communication in your family so that everyone's needs get met!
I remember the moment two years ago that I knew things needed to change.
It was the day after Christmas and I had just finished all the shopping, had done all the wrapping, and organized all the meals - on top of keeping up with my own job, taking the kids to their after-school activities, and managing my son's frequently intense emotions.
I sat on the couch and cried. Huge, heaving, trying to catch-my-breath sobs.
There I was, doing EVERYTHING and still feeling like a huge disappointment.
That's when I knew I couldn't do it all anymore. My kids expected me to take care of waking them up, to answer their every need, and constantly be available. I felt overwhelmed and I knew my kids weren't developing responsibility with me doing it all.
So, I started changing how I asked. I used proven strategies from psychology and the strong communication skills that I've learned through my research in parenting practice, psychology and communication.
Instead of coming up with solutions myself, I brought my family in on the problem solving. Instead of putting it all on myself, I delegated to others. And now I'm going to help you do the same.
CONSIDER WHAT'S POSSIBLE...
Imagine having your family support you as much as you support them.
Here's what that would look like:
Your kids no longer fight you (and fight each other less) instead of feeling the constant pushback.
You don't get backtalk when you ask your kids to do something.
You feel like you're participating and contributing to your family instead of doing it all.
Your kids help out around the house without being asked, instead of you constantly pleading, nagging, and reminding them.
You have time to relax and read a book, go out with friends or work on a hobby - instead of feeling guilty about taking time away.
You have a plan that's simple to follow through on instead of feeling like you're always behind.
You actually enjoy the time you're spending with your kids instead of constantly being in "what do I have to do next?" mode.
"JoAnn doesn’t give you a list of things you should be doing or make you feel guilty. Instead, she makes you feel good as a parent. My kids are getting along a lot better and helping each other out. I’m calmer and more relaxed."
– Tracey H. -

"I love how my family is more mindful of how we respond to various challenges now."
"I feel calmer. I'm better able to deal with situations. And I can definitely see the impact that's having on my children."
"I'm not yelling as much, nagging as much. My heart palpitations have gone down."
"I like how the steps are simple and with H.A.P.P.Y. (as an easy way to remember it), I can run it through my head if I forget something. It's almost foolproof! I'm able to speak more calmly with my kids because I know exactly what I can say and do in common situations."

WHAT SETS CALM & HAPPY PARENTING APART?
A step-by-step process that changes how you communicate with your family.
As a mom, you're always trying to find the balance between doing too much and not doing enough. You constantly feel like you're being pulled in a million directions, you never have enough time for everyone, and can't seem to shake that sense of never-ending guilt. Let's change that now.
Before any big change, we need to take stock of what we have now and what we want to see happen. Overwhelm comes from trying to do everything all at once. That's why we first step back, assess, and set priorities.

how to be kind to yourself when you're learning.
how to break through the perfectionism in parenting, and help your kids as well,
the one step every parent should take to gain more cooperation from kids,
the four different types of parenting styles and which one is best for raising confident, responsible kids,
why the typical way you've been taught to handle kid behaviors doesn't work and what to do instead,
the three ways to deal with problems in your home,
how much you currently do in your home and how much time it takes, and
how to decide what your first priority to solve will be.

WHAT IF MY CHILD IS NOT NEUROTYPICAL OR ON A BEHAVIORAL PLAN?

HOW EXACTLY DOES CALM & HAPPY PARENTING WORK?
Unlike typical parenting programs that focus on tactics for discipline, Calm & Happy Parenting focuses on changing the way you communicate. It's not about setting strict rules or complicated scenarios that you need to follow through on or be consistent with.
Rather, we take the guilt out of parenting by teaching you how to drill down to find your child's actual concerns, how to express your own concerns in a way that gets your family to listen to you, and finally how to problem solve together to find a solution that works for everyone.
I'm not saying it lightly when I say that this method is a parenting game-changer.

Yes. Since Calm & Happy Parenting focuses on the relationships you have with your kids and how you communicate as a family, it's effective for families of all designs.
