If your child:


  • lashes out at others
  • hits, scratches, or bites himself or herself
  • tries to hurt you when upset
  • gets in trouble at playdates, school or daycare

Now you can:

  • finally understand the root causes of your child's aggression
  • feel more confident as a parent as you effectively stop hitting, kicking, biting, yelling and other violent tendencies
  • have concrete tools to address aggression, that you can share with other adults in your child's life
  • and in this process you will strengthen your child’s connection with you, building cooperation and warmth back to the forefront of your relationship

I was so sad when my kids were not getting along and my oldest was hitting and biting, particularly because I had read so many books and was from the beginning practicing attachment parenting and positive discipline. After my first try using what I learned in this class they played together.  I mean, really, they played together.  They had never done that.  That was the beginning of an amazing shift in their relationship and in my relationship with my daughter.

    In just a few weeks, we have noticed an incredible shift in our whole family dynamic. Thank you for giving me the idea and permission to play with my son in silly ways. It felt so good to know it is okay to play with my kids! We were both happy and that connected feeling carried over to him helping cook dinner, share with his baby sister, and go to sleep easily. Really amazing stuff!

    You'll also learn

      • Why a child who hits is a scared child, and you will learn how to help him work through those fears so they aren’t so easily triggered
      • A powerful tool to support you as you help your child work his way through difficult feelings that lead to challenging behaviors
      • How to help your child work through fears so he isn't so easily triggered

    Read this mother's story of how the class allowed her young daughter to make a remarkable change.

    This approach and these tools are especially helpful for children who have had challenging early experiences such as a difficult birth, invasive medical treatment, or significant separations from a caregiver. When children’s hitting arises out of the fear experienced during these kinds of challenging events, an approach that fosters connection, co-regulation of emotions, and warm limits is critical.
