Are you feeling stressed, frustrated, or overwhelmed by your child's behavior?

  • Does life with your child often feel like it’s their way or no way? Is everything an argument?

  • What about oppositional behavior? Does your child respond to your directives with defiance and disrespect?

  • Is your child emotionally volatile, do they struggle with emotional regulation? Do you find yourself walking on eggshells to avoid a meltdown? Does their anger lead to physical aggression?

If you’ve answered Yes to any of these questions, you’re in the right place! We specialize in strong-willed, “spirited” kids and we specialize in strategies for parents who have already “tried everything.”

Rebecah Freeling
Family Coach

As a family coach who’s worked with strong-willed kids and their parents for over 20 years, I specialize in solutions for parents who have “tried everything.”

I can show you how to teach your child to listen and cooperate. I can show you the most effective way to respond to your child’s intense emotions. I can teach you and your child to solve problems together, so everyone feels heard – this goes a long way toward getting kids to buy in to what the changes you’re wanting!

And best of all, the tools I show you can be used long-term, so you can stop that endless search for the next best parenting strategy.

If this is your first visit to my website be sure to download your free tip sheet, Five Top Mistakes Made by Parents of Strong-Willed Kids.

After you’ve done that, if you’d like to explore parent coaching, go to my Coaching page. If you’re a teacher and want help addressing problem behaviors in your classroom, see what I do for teachers. If you’d like a copy of my book, go here. And finally, if you’d like to schedule an initial (free) assessment, read more about that below!


How do we get started?

Schedule an initial consult with me! This is a short 20- 30-minute Zoom- or phone call where I can learn more about what’s going on for you and your family, make an initial assessment and offer insight as to what’s causing the problem, and explain how I can
help. There’s no charge for this consult and you’ll leave feeling encouraged and hopeful. I look forward to talking with you!!
