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?
Are you frustrated that you and your husband aren't on the same team when it comes to raising your kids?
Closing the Parent Gap (CPG) Basics
is a parenting foundations course that will teach you how to parent your children with your calm mind rather than the programming leftover from your childhood.

You will learn tools, strategies and scripts to support you in:
Ending bedtime battles
