Are you tired of arguing, negotiating, bribing or threatening to get your kids to cooperate?

The Parenting Without Power Struggles Monthly Membership Program
will help you have more fun...and fewer power struggles!

Imagine the relief of knowing you can reach out to an experienced
parent educator and family counselor for guidance and support. 

That's what you'll get when you join the Parenting Without Power Struggles Membership Program!

It used to be that you'd be surrounded by a tribe or village of caring people who you could turn to for guidance or support.

These days, most parents go it alone. And that’s not easy! We’re meant to have wise aunties to walk us through struggles over a toddler’s meltdowns or a tween’s sassy attitude.

Without a safe place to sort through our parenting challenges, we may do nothing at all, hoping the situation will resolve itself.

Unfortunately, what began as a small issue may become a full-blown problem; a bossy child may start losing friends; our kids may start pulling away because we’re constantly losing our temper..

I’ve created a way to personally offer you regular access to practical guidance and support: a safe haven where we can resolve problems together before small issues become full-blown problems.

I’ve worked with thousands of parents for over four decades as a teacher and family therapist. I’ve written hundreds of parenting articles and two bestselling books. I’ve hosted parenting workshops from Africa to Kansas, Israel to Seattle.

What I’ve found parents most need is an experienced and reliable guide to help address ever-changing challenges as our children grow up.

To that end, I have created a monthly membership community that will help you have the peaceful, joyful family life you want. You’ll have support when you hit a rough patch, and inspiration to keep you on track when things are going well!

Working with parents and children has been my passion and joy for over forty years. (I was young when I started!) I began my work as a credentialed teacher, and then became licensed as a Marriage and Family psychotherapist.

For many years was the parenting expert for AOL and the Huffington Post, writing a weekly advice column on every aspect of raising children.

I have written the popular book, Parenting Without Power Struggles: Raising Joyful, Resilient Kids While Staying Cool, Calm, and Connected, and most recently, Parenting With Presence: Practices for Raising Conscious, Confident, Caring Kids (An Eckhart Tolle Edition.)

Decades of experience have led me to develop a way of approaching children that fosters cooperation-- instead of power struggles, negotiations, and arguments.

I show parents how to stay confidently calm as the “Captain of the ship”, even in the face of difficult behavior.

And I help families deepen attachment and connection, allowing parents and children to enjoy one another, creating joy, ease, and harmony in the home.

Your membership includes:

• Two live Q & A video calls per month with me, one for parents of children ages 0-9, and one for parents of kids ages 10 and older. You can attend one or both! Ask me questions in the chat, or join me for personal coaching. If you can’t attend, you can submit questions in advance. Each call is recorded, so you can watch it whenever you like.


• Emails, videos, and audio between coaching calls to help you stay on track. These friendly reminders will help you stay the course week after week so you’ll have a steady source of support.


• Optional Member Forum: Our Member tribe is a very special group of like-minded, like-hearted parents who are committed to raising great kids while steering clear of arguments and drama. In the private support forum, you can interact with other members. I’ll also be checking in regularly to see how you’re doing.


• Special Discounts on many of my courses, webinars and summit recordings.

Frequently Asked Questions

When do the Q&A Video Calls Happen?

The Q & A calls are generally held on the 5th (younger children) and 20th (older kids) of each month at varied times so people in all time zones can participate live as often as possible.

What ages is this for?

We have designed the program to benefit parents of toddlers through teens. You are welcome to attend both calls, or just the call for your child’s age range. 

What if I can't make the Q&A calls?

We vary call times so that no matter what part of the world you live in, you’ll be able to make some of the calls in person. However, the call replays reside in your member portal so you can watch at your convenience. You can also post your questions in advance and tune in to the replay for personalized guidance.

What can I expect out of this membership?

You can expect consistent support to help you become the calm, confident Captain of the ship in your children's lives. Through monthly coaching, emails, and group calls, you will have my ongoing help to navigate whatever ups and downs show up in your parenting life.

Is there a commitment required to stay in the program?

There is no enrollment commitment - you can cancel at any time by emailing

Parents share their experience:

Susan does an amazing job of explaining how to get rid of the patterns that you were raised with and not repeat them with your children. She helped me understand why certain behaviors triggered me from issues from my own childhood. Knowing this has helped me be aware of those triggers and really start to enjoy parenting my two beautiful girls. R.T

I have only been a member for a few months but my husband and I can already see that things are much better in our house. Fewer shouting matches, more lighthearted moments. I needed the regular sessions to help me take the ideas I loved in your book and make them real. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. B. K.

I love your approach and everything about your work and now I get to work with you in person! Feeling so much gratitude for the wisdom and knowledge you share! L. N.

Are you ready to have fewer power struggle
and more connection with your kids?
