Here are some answers to my most commonly asked questions:

How quickly can I see results?

This is a difficult question to answer. Some parenting programs will promise immediate results. I won’t. Some problems have easy answers, and you may see changes quickly. Others will take longer. Typically, it takes 3 weeks to change a habit so I like to advise my clients to expect long term changes to take about that long to start showing success.


When should I seek help?

Right now! If you are here looking around, give me a call. We might talk today, but you might not be ready to meet me or implement any kind of behaviour plan until tomorrow, or next week, or next year. And that’s ok! All you might be looking for is someone to tell you “is this normal?” and I am happy to help you. You don’t need to have a problem that feels so big, and overwhelming that you feel that asking for help is a last resort. Just thinking “Ah, man! I wish I had someone who knew what they were talking about” is reason enough to reach out!


Do your strategies work for children of all ages?

Yes and no. Children are constantly growing and changing. Their abilities and their challenges are changing right along with them. Our strategies need to be as flexible and adaptable as they are. I won’t give you sweeping promises that my strategies work with children of all ages. Toddlers, preschoolers, adolescents, children of different ages have behaviour challenges that accompany their developmental stage. Children are also individuals! This means that while age appropriate strategies are good guidelines, they won’t always work for every child, every time. My Wayfinding Framework gives you the skills to create a map that will guide your child to where they need to be at a specific time in their development, no matter their age, and give you the confidence to tackle the next behaviour challenge!


My kid (insert literally any behaviour issue you want), is that a problem?

Only if it is a problem for you and your family. If you enjoy getting up with your little ones in the night (there is nothing better than sleepy cuddles!) then it’s not a problem. If you and your partner are arguing about it, if you are so tired in the morning you find yourself short-tempered or easily frustrated, then maybe it is a problem. Sometimes even figuring out if something is a problem can be a hard part of parenting! Especially in this post mommy-blog, social media world where every headline seems to be pointing out what you’re doing wrong. This drives me bananas! A huge part of my support is talking with you and your family about what you think might be problems, so we can figure out together if they are.
