Welcome to the parenting courses page!

Here you can view and sign up for a variety of self-paced, email-based courses that cover various topics in parenting. All of these courses are 4 weeks in length with a new email lesson coming every week for you to work through at your own pace. Emails include written copy as well as a streaming link to listen to the information if that works better for you. There is optional homework each week but it really is optional and only to be done if it helps you!

All courses come with one (1) one-on-one session with me to go over your specific questions and help you personalize any of the content you may be struggling with. These sessions are done via Zoom, but you can call in for it so you don’t need an internet connection. You can take them at any point, but most people wait until they are finished the course before signing up.

Because of these individual sessions, each month I limit the number of spaces in courses so you may see courses sold out once they have reached capacity. Once this happens, they will reopen the following month for you to register.

You can also get free previews of each course so you can get a better feel for the type of information you will be getting. Each preview is just a portion of the first week. If you have any questions after listening, I would be happy to answer via email (tracy@evolutionaryparenting.com).

I hope to see you soon!

    "[This course] should be a rite of passage for all parents." ~ Sabrina, mother of 2, Australia

    One of the most common problems parents face today is how to handle the various issues surrounding discipline and being in charge.  In this 4-week course, we will cover topics pertaining to our expectations for our children, the issue of punishment versus consequences, how to be "in charge", how to handle specific common situations like tantrums and not listening, and so much more.  You can read more details below.  As always, the course comes with one 30-min one-on-one session with me via Zoom (or email) so you can ask me your individual questions to help make this course more relevant for your specific situation. Format: Written and streaming audio link (link will be provided in each email and will be a reading of the written content)

    NEW - Check out the free sample of the audio version of the course! Most parents are not prepared for raising a high-needs or orchid child and even less prepared for how harsh our culture can be for these sensitive children.  Contrary to modern advice to toughen up our kids to face the harsh world, these children require a much more gentle and supportive hand if they are to thrive, just as the orchid requires extensive care to grow into the beautiful flower it is.  Although orchid children are at higher risk for some negative outcomes, this is tempered by the fact that when they are given the right environment and the right support, they actually do better than those children who are more resilient at the start.  The goal for this 4-week course is to help you create that environment and provide that support in a culture that is working against you.  As always, the course comes with office hours to help individualize the information to your child and situation.  For more details, you can read the longer description below. Format: Written and streaming audio link (link will be provided in each email and will be a reading of the written content) and 1 one-on-one 30-min session (or "office hours") with me (you can add-on additional sessions if you'd like).

    Parenting your first child is hard.

    Parenting your first and second is ten times harder.

    So many parents enter parenthood and feel overwhelmed.  Over time, they get their bearings and then they feel prepared to take on the challenge of welcoming a second child into the mix.  You've done it before, so this time it'll be easier, right?  All too often, it's actually wrong.  Balancing the needs of the youngest with an oldest (who isn't used to sharing your love or time) can be beyond demanding and many parents struggle with feelings of failure, guilt, and shame.  Being overwhelmed by it all makes it harder to keep our cool and parent how we want to and falling short on a regular basis does nothing to help the family dynamic.  In this 4-week course we will look at the various struggles families face with raising two to help you understand how you can prepare (if baby #2 is coming) or change things (if baby #2 is here and there's struggle) to help as you navigate what is probably the hardest switch - that of 1 to 2 children.

    You can read more details of what the course covers in the fuller description below. Format: Written (pdf downloads) and audio links available each week for the content.  One-on-one session available via Zoom or via email.
