Take the Exhaustion Out of Modern Parenting

Parenting is hard! You try your best, but get stuck in patterns saying and doing things without knowing why.

I call this default parenting, which is comfortable… until it doesn’t work.

Stop wasting time and money on outdated strategies and take control of your family.

This course is for you if you…

You’re tired of trying to make sense of the right way to parent among a sea of contradictory opinions.

Hey there, I'm Tammy

Tammy Harris, M.Ed., NBCT

I teach parents like you how to love the kid they have, rather than the kid they imagined.

I’m an expert on how to adapt parenting in ways that best meet children’s needs, with fewer power struggles, and most importantly, ensure kids thrive in every situation.

In this course, I promise to teach you everything I know about modern parenting and the lessons I’ve learned over the past 3 decades as a teacher and parent.

I’m a National Board Certified Teacher, District Teacher of the Year (2007), taught special and general education, and hold a Master’s Degree in Special Education.

Most importantly, my husband of 30+ years (yikes) and I are proud parents of two adult children. Jacob and Alex both graduated from out-of-state universities and are successfully pursuing their careers.

Learning is better in community

q5lJLOydTKCExEG5DpzT_Tammy-s Teachings (1)

Active learning, not passive watching

You can access tons of parenting information in books, on YouTube, or even TikTok. But passive viewing isn’t the same as learning.

This course is the perfect blend of live and short pre-recorded videos, along with interactive activities.

Together is Better

Modern parenting is isolating. Even when we’re surrounded by friends and family, we can feel alone.

In this class, you will join a small group of parents as we learn to parent in modern times. This is a safe place to ask for advice, share resources, and be accountable for growth.

Interactive and project-based

This is not a boring lecture type of course. You will take part in hands-on projects and activities which lead to a powerful transformation.

I promise if you do the work, you will grow.
