Last, and never least, Meghan is a mother to three young children herself.  She is no stranger to power struggles!


We will discover children's developmentally normal behaviors, look your own family history, figure out how to positively use consequences, and see the connection between our own parenting behaviors and how we grow power struggles with our children.

"This class made me see my triggers more clearly. It also gave me the word “easy” so when I’m triggered I can remember breathe deeply and look for solutions that make the situation easier. And when I still mess up, this class reminded me to forgive myself for being human and begin again. Class with Meghan makes me think about growing my relationships with my kids with more love. Thanks for making this hard work a bit easier."
