Go from stressed and guilty to peaceful and connected.

You know the drill: You're trying to get dinner on the table. Your oldest two kids are arguing over a toy, yelling for you to dispense justice. The toddler is hangry and wailing, wrapped around your leg while you're trying to cook. And of course, your husband is kept late at work (again). You are literally gritting your teeth, trying to keep your ish together, but it's wearing thin.

And then you snap. Now, all three kids are crying. You feel like crap, and oh, dinner burned because you were so busy yelling at everyone.

You try so hard to not yell at your kids, but it doesn't work. And you're afraid: What if someone knew just how angry I get?

You're not a bad mom. Here's the real problem.

Kids are a lot, and parenting is relentless.

 As my friend with 4 grown children told me, "Being at home with young kids is a crazy, fabulous s#@! show."

You've got thought patterns that keep you stuck.

Those tapes playing on repeat in your head are preventing your growth as a parent.

You were never taught how to regulate your emotions.

So how can you possibly expect yourself to be the perfect, unflappable June Cleaver mom?

"Wow, I felt like Samantha was talking right to me throughout this course! She understood where I'm coming from and made me feel like my challenges are normal while also giving practical strategies for becoming a calmer, more responsive mom to my two young children. The journal prompts were really helpful for digging deeper into the moments where I feel angry and understand the real emotions behind them. Thank you for putting this course together!"

Diane, mom of 2

"Before taking From Reactive to Responsive, I found myself yelling to get the attention of my young daughters (ages 2 and 5) when they were arguing and yelling at each other over a toy. As my voice got louder, so did my anger and frustration levels. Samanatha has lots of great tips and journal questions that helped me to dig into what was causing that and what to do about it in the moment. I learned to pause a moment and acknowledge that the situation is not an emergency before responding, which has made a huge difference for both my girls and myself. While the knowledge I learned in this course, I even created a new family mantra. We now say, 'There is time to be kind,' and we're able to use our nice, kind voices with one another. The girls are still learning not to raise their voices at each other, but Mommy has learned to keep her cool."

Frequently asked questions:

Will this course make my kids behave better?

Yes and no. While there are a lot of parenting courses out there designed to change your kids, we need to be honest: Your kids aren't taking the course. You are.

We're about helping you become the parent you're meant to be. As you learn to parent more respectfully, your child will see first hand how to show respect to you.

Who is the course NOT for?

From Reactive to Responsive is not not a quick fix, so if that's what you're looking for, this course won't be for you. I am not here to offer you “parenting hacks” or to guarantee results from using “this one simple trick,” because let’s be real, parenting isn’t something that you hack. 

This course will require some thoughtful self-evaluation and participation for you to receive the full benefit from it. So if you're ready to dig deep and become less stressed and shamed, and become more positive and calm, then jump on in!

Why is this course so relatively inexpensive?

I just want to get this info out to as many moms as possible, so they can stop feeling crappy and start loving life with their family again.

Sure, I could charge a higher price set up a monthly membership access, but I want to make this course a no-brainer for you.

When does the course start and end?

The course starts whenever you're ready! And while it's set up with week-by-week chapters, it's self-paced. You decide when to start and when to finish.

How long do I have access to the course?

You've got lifetime access! So go back to parts you want to check out again, or get a refresher even years later.

What are your qualifications?

Let's get down to brass tacks: This program is not therapy. I am not a psychologist, and I am not able to diagnose or treat any clinical conditions. If you are suffering from severe depression or anxiety, please seek help from a professional therapist.

But here's the truth: I have been there. I know what it's like to be on the edge of losing control because you're so overwhelmed by life with your kids. And I've done a lot of research and a lot of work to get through my own issues (plus, I'm learning every day!). I know that what I'm sharing can help you.

Don't spend another month just feeling like you're surviving until bed time every single night.

Act now so you can really connect with your little ones, and stay grounded even when they're acting like, well, kids.

My best tips for surviving long days when you're stuck at home with the family

Hi, I’m Samantha!

I have four kids of my own, and I know how hard it can be to juggle family, a demanding career (both outside the home and from home), and just day-to-day life.

I wrote From Reactive to Responsive based on the lessons I've learned from years of research and working through my own issues around feeling "not good enough" as a parent. I've taken my drive to learn evidence-based practices (I am a PhD scientist, after all) and applied to it parenting. And now I'm sharing what I've learned with you.
