The understanding of relationship is infinitely more important than the search for any plan of action.
Running Now: Discipline: A New Paradigm
A New 5 Week Online Course.
Do you sometimes feel at a loss in your role as parent? That you aren't sure how to respond to some of your child's behavior? Do you grow impatient or angry more often than you'd like? Do you sometimes feel like your child sees you as his or her opponent? I get it.
Do you wish you had a better approach for the challenging moments of parenting? Do you yearn for a closer relationship with your child? Would you like your child to know that you are her "best bet"? That you are the one who will tenderly hold his heart? I get it.
As parents, we have so much love for our children; we want only the best for them. But sometimes, daily behaviors and patterns of interaction feel complicated; we don't know how to respond to rude or aggressive behavior; we find ourselves engaged in power struggles, arguments or endless iterations of consequences. I get it.
In Discipline: A New Paradigm, we will start at the beginning, with our relationship with our child. We will come to understand that our connection with them is the root of their growth, happiness, maturity and development. We will learn how to make sense of our child's behavior (and misbehavior!) and how to preserve our relationship with them, no matter what comes our way.
In Discipline: A New Paradigm, we will learn together - through video lessons, live group coaching calls, a vibrant parent forum and more. We will share wisdom, stories, tips, tricks and, definitely, laughs. We will remember our role as warm, firm, calm, loving and generous guardians of our children's hearts.

Meeting our children’s attachment needs is our number one job as parents. Our number two job is to make sure this attachment is in the correct hierarchical order: with parents in the Alpha* position and children in the Dependent* position. For many of us, there is a resistance to standing in a place of authority…Read More
I hope you have enjoyed Parts 1 and 2 in the “Be Your Child’s Best Bet” blog post series. Today, we will conclude this series by exploring “But What do I do When X happens?” with the unspoken part being “Because you said I shouldn’t be giving time outs/punishments/consequences!” This is a very common question…Read More
Yesterday we explored what it means to be our children’s ‘best bet.’ Today we’ll look at some common parenting practices that take us away from being their best bet and, in fact, can lead to our children distrusting us and believing that they need to hide parts of themselves from us. Before we continue, I want…Read More
Lisa creates a warm and welcoming space for parents to share, question and explore simpler choices together...this time reflecting and being reflected has been a highlight of my week and continues to inform my parenting path. Lisa brings a light heart and a celebratory spirit; she is lovely, highly-skilled and clearly dedicated to her own inner parenting work.
One of Lisa's greatest strengths is presenting material in a way that it can be used without a lot of practice. I notice immediate benefits at home after one of her classes. She seems to continuously study because she always finds new information that fits the topic at hand. I appreciate her mix of teaching, using guided meditations (one from a few years ago that I use to this day) personal mantras and experiences that make her classes relatable, down to earth and the most worthwhile parenting help I have found.
I recently took Simplicity Parenting 101 and loved it. I found it to be a parenting approach that is in alignment wth my deeper sense of relationship with my daughter. It's drawn my attention to being more present and creating a very valuable rhythm in our lives. Lisa is an amazing teacher; her stories bring simplicity parenting to life and create a vivid reference point for the teachings. I highly recommend her courses and, personally, I can't get enough of them!
Taking Simplicity Parenting 101 has been one of the best things I've done for myself and my family. The recommendations have been simple, yet have had profound effects on our family life.
Lisa's Simplicity Parenting 101 and Simplicity Summer Workshop have had an incredible impact on my parenting. I became a keen observer of my children's play and learned how and when we needed to make shifts in our activities. This had an extremely positive impact on my children. I saw less meltdowns and sibling conflicts! I've read lots of parenting books and have taking a couple other classes but I have to say, Lisa's class gave me some serious tools for my parenting toolbox that I have come to heavily rely on!
Lisa was always very responsive and thoughtful; she listened well and gave excellent advice. I learned how to slow down and connect more with my son.
