Closing the Parent Gap (CPG) Basics

 (Next course starts January 27, 2018 and runs for six weeks)

  • When you get really honest with yourself, does the climate in your home feel more like everyone is walking on eggshells rather than the image you put out on social media?

  • Are you sick of feeling like you have to yell to get your kids to listen and cooperate?

  • Are you ready to replace the constant negotiations and power struggles with memory making giggles and smiles?

  • This transformation does not need to take months or years - you are ready and you want it NOW!

  • You are amazing and you just need a few new tools and concepts to bring out the parent YOU always swore you would be.  

  • The parent you are in your heart.

Closing the Parent Gap (CPG) Basics

is a 6-week parenting foundations course that will teach you how to parent your children with your calm conscious mind rather than the subconscious programs leftover from your own childhood.  Negative subconscious patterns, (like yelling, threatening and shaming), we SWORE we would never repeat, frequently show up in our current families.  Learning the foundational concepts and tools in Closing the Parent Gap will set you and your family on a path toward having the family you have always wanted for yourself and your children while changing unhealthy patterns leftover from the past.

Here's What People Are Saying:

As a mom of three kids close in age, I fell victim to many of the “survival” strategies of busy and overwhelmed moms—parenting from a place of reactivity instead of patience, understanding, and proactivity. When I finally had all 3 kids in school, I felt I could breathe for the first time in 6 years, and I started to look at what was happening in my household. At the same time, I decided to become a Baby/Toddler Sleep Consultant, because sleep was the ONE parenting issue I felt I really nailed with my kids. When I started having a lot of success helping families with their children’s sleep issues, Randi came into my life. Her course has deepened both my understanding of my own parenting issues, as well as the root of other parents’ struggles that present as sleep issues. Now I understand my most spirited child and the roots of his behavior, as well as bringing more peace to the sibling relationships. I also have a brand new toolbox to help parents of toddlers with sleep issues. So the course helped me both personally AND professionally—what a WIN-WIN!

Hi. I was thinking last night about the timing of all of this. When I started with you, what my focus was on, and how incredibly grateful I am to feel like I am connected with my kiddos right now. Seriously I know that sounds cheesy, but it’s so true. After that first week when I wasn’t sure I wanted to move forward because the way things had changed felt ‘that good,’ it was all true at the time. But it wasn’t sustainable unless I kept going and going deeper. So glad we did and so glad you pushed me when I needed it. I don’t measure success with the kids by the moments of meltdowns and “brother”-hits-“brother” scenarios, because I have realized those things are going to happen. Probably daily. But it’s the space in between that counts. Feeling connected and seeing them thriving and happy and secure and sometimes even loving toward one another. It’s so precious. So I just wanted to stop a second and say thanks for that. And you can use this as a testimonial if you want (without my name) :)

It’s so eye-opening and refreshing to know there are tools inside all of us that we just have to get in the habit of using and reversing our old practices.
