Is your child struggling?

Are you?

Dealing with child anxiety is not easy. Meltdowns, tantrums, tears and worry. These intense, sensitive children and teens are hard to parent.

But what if I told you that YOU can turn things around for your anxious child? Research shows that we’ve been doing it wrong — the intervention shouldn’t start with the child; it should start with YOU. 

Happy parent with happy child
Is your child anxious?

Does your child have a hard time with:

• Being away from you?
• Sleeping alone?
• Facing new experiences?
• Getting to school or staying in class?
• Making or keeping friends?
• Stomachaches and headaches?
• Excessive, obsessive worries?
• Anger, outbursts, and meltdowns?
• Poor self esteem?
• Negative, discouraged attitude?

Anxiety limits functioning!

Your parenting isn’t the problem; it’s the solution!

What folks are saying

(note: pseudonyms to protect member privacy)

Dawn told me it would take a paradigm shift and she was right. But once the lightbulb went off it all made sense. I get it now! The things I learned in the program make all our interactions easier, not just the anxious ones.

Marlee, parent of an anxious child

People who don’t have an anxious child don’t get how hard it can be. Dawn gets it. She held our hands through getting our daughter to sleep on her own, which I thought would never happen. She’s a miracle worker!

Tree, parent of an anxious child

I felt so exhausted and guilty before I worked with Dawn but I don’t feel like everything is all my fault anymore and I enjoy being with my teen because we both know how to deal with her anxiety now.

Carrie, parent of an anxious child

Dawn is honest, smart, and trustworthy. I wish every family could access this program. She says things in a way I can understand and helps me keep perspective even when I’m overwhelmed.

Katie, parent of an anxious child

My wife joined the program but I was less convinced. Then I saw that the way she interacted with our son was different and how things calmed down in our house. I went back and read through the lessons and realized what she was doing and why it worked. The next time my wife got on Voxer, I did, too. Now I’m 100% on board.

Ken, parent of an anxious child

What helped me is that Dawn respected my need to take it slow. I never felt pressured or judged so it made it easier to move forward on my own terms. If you’re nervous about opening your family up to judgment, don’t be! Dawn is respectful and kind, and like the mom I wish I had!
