Have you noticed that, even after reading all the parenting advice, you still go right back to your old patterns? That any positive changes you manage to make don’t continue past a few days or weeks?
Most parents just like you have the best intentions and do all they can to discipline with patience and love—but it never seems enough. They still find themselves in power struggles or simply not enjoying parenthood as they hoped they would.
Despite their best efforts, parents still struggle because they’ve never been taught the parenting principles that make real, lasting change. They focus on what punishment they should do, or tips and tricks that may work one day, but not the next.
Typical parenting advice—time outs, consequences, spanking, yelling—are ineffective and even damaging. If this were not true, then every parent who has tried these methods would have an amazing relationship with their kids, but this just isn’t the case.
You see, unless you discipline from the “same side” (instead of seeing your child as the problem to “fix”), then you’re going to keep falling short.
This is why most parents continue to struggle with discipline and dread the daily drudge of parenthood.
Rest assured, it’s not your fault. Most parents don’t know about starting from the inside out or looking at the role they play in these power struggles—they simply react to their child’s behavior.
To prove this, I have two questions: 1) Do you know why you continue to yell at your child, even when you said you wouldn’t, and 2) do you know the quickest and most effective way to connect with her when she’s throwing a fit?
If you can answer yes to both these questions, then I probably can’t help you. But if you answered no, then I’m going to completely change how you think about parenting, and the way you interact with your child.
“There were many times when my nerves were a wreck and I had no patience to deal with my daughter’s crying. I would talk to her with a strict tone of voice, or speak louder than usual, which of course didn’t help either of us. Instead, the situation would get worse. But after applying what you said, everything has changed! The tantrums have grown fewer and shorter, and my daughter has even found ways to calm herself down. It’s been such great progress for the both of us!”
Despite day after day of their kids testing their patience or of feeling like a failure, many parents still don’t change anything about how they’re raising their kids. Then they wonder why they still can’t stay calm during tantrums or get frustrated when their kids don’t listen.
The thing is, they’re working from a backwards mentality, one where they’re the “boss,” and it’s all about getting the child to obey. They’re relying on willpower or motivation to stay calm, only to feel triggered when both run out. They’ve tried every parenting tip under the sun, but find that after a few weeks, they’re right back where they started.
So they end up on a roller coaster of emotions, where they’re happy when the kids behave, but downright miserable when they’re barely able to get through yet another outburst.
If you’re working from this mentality, then you’re simply throwing spaghetti on the wall—seeing which tactics work for the day or repeating old patterns that leave you feeling horrible and drained.
Instead of continuing to spin your wheels, reading tip after tip, or Googling advice together, isn’t it time to start from the inside out and create a real foundation in parenting? To truly transform your relationship, instead of simply reacting to your child’s next antics?
Hi, I’m Nina Garcia, author and blogger behind the parenting site, Sleeping Should Be Easy. You might already know I’ve helped countless parents through my website, newsletters, books, and resources I offer. I know what it takes to get you from not enjoying parenthood to being the kind of parent you want to be.
If you’re serious about parenting and building a strong relationship, I’m going to transform the way you interact with your child.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never read a parenting book in your life, or if you’re a seasoned mom who knows she can always improve—I can help. All you need to do is let me show you the principles that will truly transform YOU as a parent.
You see, feeling empty and discouraged with parenthood is not the norm—you don’t have to dread the time you’re with your child, or constantly worry if what you’re doing is right.
And if you’ve found yourself in this situation, don’t get down on yourself. After all, if you knew everything you needed to stop the power struggles or not lose your cool, you wouldn’t be here right now.
Same Side Discipline will show you exactly how to change, where it matters the most. Over the course of eight weeks, you’re going to transform your parenting from the inside out, so that you can see long-lasting change once and for all.
“Going through the program has helped me strengthen the relationship I have with my three-year-old twin boys and decrease stress in the household. The ramp ups aren’t as extreme, and I don’t feel as anxious about how to handle the situation. I’ve been able to de-escalate hitting and toy throwing instead of getting into a power struggle. Thank you!”
“Believe me, I have started noticing the difference in me and my kid. I can’t thank you enough. It’s a shame I didn’t find you earlier—there were so many things I was doing wrong. It surely works Nina. You are incredible.”
When you join my group coaching program, you’ll learn a new approach to parenting that will finally erase the nagging, fighting, and constant struggles. You’ll stop feeling like a failure, and instead know exactly who you need to be and what you need to do to raise your child.
I’ll show you how to be more patient, even if you tend to lose your temper, as well as effective ways to communicate with your child so you avoid power struggles to begin with.
In other words, I’m going to show you how to redefine your role as a parent and see actual changes you never thought possible (even if your past says otherwise).
The best part? This all comes from someone who truly cares about seeing you change and enjoy parenthood.
No matter where you are, you can benefit from my group coaching program in ways you only dreamed about.
“Same Side Discipline gave me better perspectives on how to look at situations with my child. Since the program, I’ve been able to slow down and not react so emotionally, allowing me to set a better example on how to handle feelings.”
WEEK 1: VISION
Learn the importance of defining what you want your relationship with your child to look like, and what it will take to get the results you want to see.
WEEK 2: IDENTITY
Discover the stories you’ve been telling yourself about who you and your child are, and how to determine the kind of person you have to be to make long lasting changes.
WEEK 3: GROWTH
Stop trying to “fix” your child. Instead realize that you too must also grow (and grow up) to fill your role as a parent.
WEEK 4: CONTROL
The only person you can control is yourself—not your child. Discover why trying to mold your child one way or another backfires, and how changing yourself is actually the way to go.
WEEK 5: HABITS
Have you noticed that you continue to lose your temper or fight with your child, no matter how many times you vow not to? Stop relying on willpower and instead focus on your habits and triggers.
WEEK 6: EMPATHY
Learn the powerful tool of using empathy, and how you can connect with your child and melt her defenses.
WEEK 7: RESPECT
Mutual respect is vital for any relationship to thrive. You’ll learn why respect starts with YOU, and the role self-integrity and responsibility play in developing respect for each other.
WEEK 8: LOVE
The hardest part of being a parent is showing unconditional love. Discover how to show your commitment to loving your child (and what that really means) while still providing the boundaries she needs.
“I was looking for a change in the way I was parenting my kids, but I didn’t know where to start. Your realistic and practical advice helped a lot as it changed my perspective. You have helped me understand my kids better, especially when they cry. I now have extra patience and empathy for them and feel so much more connected. My toddler is amazing us every day—she is understanding me better, sleeping on her own, not throwing tantrums, the list goes on. I wanted to take the time to share this with you and thank you!”
Rest assured, you’ll finish this 8-week coaching program a completely new person. You’ll have a different way of thinking about parenting and how to communicate with your child.
Scour the internet and you’ll discover that there’s nothing like this program anywhere else. We go beyond the tips and tricks and go deep into who you are BEING in order to change from the inside out.
The result? A happier parent with fewer power struggles to deal with.
“What is Same Side Discipline?”
Same Side Discipline is an 8-week online group coaching program. Each week, we’ll have a live weekly group call online, as well as homework available before that week’s call. All you’ll need is a computer or even smart phone with internet access to participate in the group calls.
I named the program “Same Side Discipline” because I truly believe that in order to solve power struggles, we need to rethink of ourselves as being on the same side as our kids, instead of being on opposite sides.
“Who is Same Side Discipline for?”
The program is catered to parents of young children, from infants through the elementary years.
More important, Same Side Discipline is for parents dedicated to doing the work and open to actually making changes.
“How is the program different from the blog, newsletter, or ebooks you offer?”
Same Side Discipline is an interactive, live group coaching program. Every week, we’ll hop on an online video call as a group and discuss that week’s topic. You’ll also have an opportunity to ask questions specifically about your situation.
You can also upgrade to include a one-hour, one-on-one coaching session with me along with your purchase.
Beyond the format, the topics themselves are new. Same Side Discipline focuses on the role parents play in the power struggles and challenges we face as opposed to focusing solely on expecting kids to do all the changing.
“Do I have to be present for each weekly call?”
You don’t “have” to do anything, but you will only get out of the program what you put into it. I highly encourage you to prioritize the program in order to see changes in your parenting.
You may have other commitments, or your current circumstances may not make it easy for you to attend each call, but as you’ll learn in the program, the longer you work from your circumstances (“Not enough time, money or energy, etc.”), the longer you’ll stay stuck in the same problems. After all, do you notice that the people who are most overwhelmed with raising a family are the ones who could most use the help?
That said, I plan to record all calls and Facebook sessions, more so that members, including even those who attended live, can re-watch them. So, if you absolutely can’t make the calls, they will be recorded and available for you to watch at a later time. You’ll also still get the homework packets via email each week, and can ask questions any time in our private Facebook group.
“When will the weekly calls be held?”
The weekly calls will be on Tuesdays 12pm-1pm Pacific Time.
“Do I have to be on camera or video to participate?”
I encourage you to participate via video during the calls, so it feels like we’re all in the same room interacting with one another. It makes the conversations flow smoothly when we can hear and see one another.
But if being in front of the camera isn’t an option, you can still talk and listen during the calls in audio format only, or submit your questions in the chat box.
Rest assured though, the calls are meant to be a comfortable, confidential space where you’re in the safe presence of fellow, like-minded parents.
“Do I need to be on Facebook to join the program?”
While joining the Facebook group isn’t mandatory, you’ll get a ton of content and support, as this is where I’ll be holding Facebook live sessions and where other parents can more easily post questions and share wins.
If you decide not to join the private Facebook group, the videos will be recorded and available to watch outside of Facebook.
“What is the investment for Same Side Discipline?”
The General Membership investment of $97 will give you complete access to the Same Side Discipline coaching program, including all the PDF packets, private Facebook group, and access to Nina through the calls and Facebook group.
The VIP Membership investment of $297 will give you everything in the General Membership plus a 1-hour, one-on-one online coaching session with Nina.
“Is there a maximum amount of members you’re admitting for this session?”
The Summer 2018 session will be capped at 100 members.
“When is Same Side Discipline open for registration?”
Registration will open from July 30 through August 3, 2018. The first call will be on Tuesday, August 7, 2018.
“Since taking Same Side Discipline, I’ve applied certain techniques to help me not lose my temper or feel trapped in my children’s meltdowns. I learned how to discipline in a supportive way while still being firm. These lessons have been super helpful and inspiring!”
I want you to feel confident that you’re getting the best coaching and life-changing resources that will help you turn power struggles around and develop a positive relationship with your child. If you’re not convinced of the incredible value found in the Same Side Discipline group coaching program, email me within 30 days of purchase and you will get a full, no questions asked, same-day refund.
Are you the kind of person who values her relationship with her child and will do what it takes to make it better?
Let me be frank here: I’m only interested in helping parents serious about improving and learning. Folks who are willing to invest a few dollars and a little time each week into sharpening their parenting skills and making real, lasting change.
In short, people who are dedicated, open-minded, and willing to do the work.
If you’re not really serious about changing your mindset and habits, then go ahead and click off—Same Side Discipline is not a fit for you.
But if you’re ready to learn a new approach to raising your child and want to improve your relationship, then you’re in the right place. This is the kind of stuff that has taken me YEARS to figure out, but you can learn it in just a few short weeks.
Don’t miss this opportunity—available only twice a year—to join Same Side Discipline. Learn how to transform your relationship with your child once and for all, and to enjoy parenthood the way you’ve always imagined.
