Building Resilience Through Kindness
PARENTING WITH CONNECTION AND CONFIDENCE (AGES 2-7+)
“I was super skeptical of the group coaching part. How was that going to be helpful, what would it look like? It turns out that is the thing I’ve really come to value and appreciate most.”
Trying to parent while making space for feelings without tools and support is exhausting, overwhelming and filling you with you with self-doubt! People consistently share that the community built through weekly calls and the access to asking Tara questions is a really important part of their overall experience and long-term success!
READY TO BUILD SOME PRACTICAL SKILLS FOR EVERYDAY PARENTING?
This is for a parent or caring adult who
- is tired of: whining, not listening, defiance and constant battles
- wonders 'is this normal'
- wants to make space for feelings and still get out the door on time
- is overwhelmed by second-guessing & parent guilt
- has tried all the things and nothing seems to work!
- knows they are talking too much in tricky moments, but doesn't know what else to do
Let's Dig Into: The Language of Kindness
The framework I created to support busy parents like you with:
- Clear language for navigating tricky situations
- Building self-esteem and confidence while also laying an important baseline for boundaries and limits
- Creating a personalized toolbox for Big Feelings that helps you connect with your child in a new way
- Feeling less stressed because Parent Clues help you understand behaviour and challenges better
Language of Kindness = Kindness to self + Kindness to Others + Kindness to the Planet

"You built my awareness and understanding in such a clear way. I loved how you shared practical tips, clear strategies and the understanding behind it."
"I listened to your course before going to bed and the next day I was faced with an epic showdown trying to get out the door to school. In the moment I heard your voice telling me not to argue, that logic and reasoning wasn’t going to help in the moment. We were able to calm down and get to school on time!"
"You taught me how to be calmer,
not just told me I need to be calm!"

Question: Why is there a DIY option and group program?
Answer: The group program is designed to build a community with weekly support and check-ins. People requested an option to do it on their own because their schedule did not align with the group program, but they still wanted to take the course.
Question: What are the main differences between the program and the course?
Answer: The program has a lot of support from Tara and includes all 6 modules of the course. The digital course has been broken into two sections (Modules 1-3 & 4-6) to be taken at your own pace.
Question: How often does the program run?
Answer: It's currently scheduled to run 4 times a year: Spring, Summer, Fall & Winter.
Question: Do you record the group coaching calls?
Answer: No, these calls are not recorded. This is one of the things that I do to support your privacy and create a safe sharing space for families.
Question: I follow you on Instagram and notice you talk a lot about picture books, will there be books included in this program?
Answer: Yes I will be talking about how you can use picture books as tools to support your parenting, but there are no books included in the program.
Question: Do you have a program for 7+ years?
Answer: Yes! I am currently building one and plan to launch it in Fall 2022. Having said that, there are several people with children age 6-9 (siblings) who have found the course to be helpful and applicable. I capped the age for the community building aspect. If you have questions about whether it could work for your family, I encourage you to reach out to me and we can chat.
