Membership
FAQs

The Memberships are the natural next step to take many of the strategies discussed in the podcast into your home, your family, with your own goals in mind. And while over the years I've had a number of workshops and other courses, the Memberships are definitively the best way to effect real, meaningful & positive change towards arriving at the solutions you need.

What is a Membership?  It's actually... the solution.

KNOWLEDGE + SUPPORT + COMMUNITY

While I have also offered workshops and courses, the Membership is truly the most impactful way to help us become the best parents we can be, and get to the solutions we need on any given day regardless of whatever parenting struggle we find ourselves.

The keys pillars of Membership include:

i. THE RIGHT KNOWLEDGE SERVED ON A CUSTOM LEARNING PLATFORM

  • You will get access to a custom-built platform of learning modules covering topics in the depth and breadth you need

  • Each topic includes a written downloadable Guide that helps you and your family work through topics (& find solutions) in real life, as well as video and audio walk-throughs for those who prefer to watch or listen

  • In addition to the main contents, each learning module has an index of video "Mini-Lessons" covering the most frequently asked questions and scenarios for a given topic

ii. SUPPORT TO GET UNSTUCK

  • This is where a course typically falls short of going from concept to real world. Over the course of working with thousands of parents, I've found SUPPORT to be the key to getting unstuck, and the catalyst for progression and lasting change

  • Base memberships include access to small (up to six members) peer coaching groups, mentored by an existing seasoned member.  You'll have the chance to engage, share and help each other, confident that everyone is following a research-based approach

  • For those who need added support and want the opportunity to interact with Jen directly, we also offer an option to add group calls to your membership. We meet twice a month, during the morning (accommodates European/African time zones) or evening (accommodates Asian/Australian time zones) Pacific Time.  You can join live or submit your question in advance to listen to the recording later.

iii. LIKE-MINDED COMMUNITY WHO VALUE RESEARCH & RESPECT

  • Everyone in Memberships will also be a part of a closed private online community, where Jen will respond in one of three ways: with a quick written clarification, with a video response, or by inviting you to a 1:1 consult which is recorded and shared with the community.

  • Have peace of mind knowing that the community is driven by a research-based and respectful parenting approach, looking to not only find solutions to parenting and learning struggles, but with the aim of raising good humans too

Monthly vs. Annual Membership? 

Options for Access & Budget

We provide two options so that you and your family can choose which fits your budget best:

Monthly Membership: Year 1

  • Provides a low monthly rate, cancel any time
  • Learning module access becomes unlocked each month (~ the recommended pace)
  • Once unlocked, return to them at any time as long as your membership is in good standing

Annual Membership: Year 1

  • Save a little bit over the course of the first 12 months
  • Year 1 Learning modules are available immediately
  • Return to the modules at any time as long as your membership is in good standing

Year 2 & Beyond

  • Members transition to a reduced monthly or annual 'maintenance' membership rate based on the Year 1 plan they selected
  • Given parenting doesn't end after a single year or final exam (there are no exams!), members who have been in good standing for five successive years of membership will be upgraded to a free lifetime membership - great for members who get started when their child is younger, as well as families with multiple children

Grounded In Research You Can Trust

Plus the Benefits of a Master's Degree in Psychology & Education
Without Having to Get One Yourself

There's no lack of information about parenting online - it's just a clickbait headline away. When Jen started the podcast, she longed for useful information she and her husband could trust - but she realized that much of it could only be found behind journal paywalls.  Through the course of getting two additional Master's degrees (Psychology focused on Child Development and Education), two main principles have since guided her work with the podcast, that has translated directly over to the memberships:

1. Scientific Research

Jen looks across the entire body of research on a topic. She's read hundreds of books and thousands of peer-reviewed journal articles on parenting and child development, and connected ideas across topic areas in a way that few others have done (did you know that research on why children won't eat vegetables can help get your child's homework done?).

-  Jen points to the strengths of the research, as well as its limitations. She calls out the biases in how the research was shaped, conducted and analyzed, and discuss how these issues may have influenced the results.  She also looks at topics where academic research may not be the best way to understand our experience.

Jen interviews the researchers who are deep experts in their specific field. She asks them the the questions parents wish they could ask, and doesn't hesitate to question discrepancies or challenge their conclusions.

2. Respectful Parenting

Societal problems are perpetuated through the way we raise our children. Our interactions with our children today (teaching them about race (or not…); telling our boys to “stop crying;” telling our girls to “stop being loud” shapes how they will treat others and expect to be treated in relationships.

If we want our children to be part of solving the world’s problems, we need to equip them with the leadership skills to do this. 

...Beyond the Research and Principles...

But all the research in the world doesn't help much if you can't see how to apply it.  I've also taken 100 hours of training to become a Co-Active Coach, and a nine-month course on holding space.  When I interact with you I'll help you to brainstorm ideas, if that's what you need. 

But through listening to you like maybe nobody has ever listened to you before, I'll also help you to see what's really at the heart of the issue for you so you can make shifts in yourself and your relationship with your children that you could never have imagined were possible.

Which Membership Is Right for You?

Perfect Together, But Will Also Get You Solutions On Their Own

Parents often ask me which membership I recommend, which depends on your situation.  They are designed to complement each other: they are both grounded in a deep respect for children's autonomy and competence.

The specific skills you'll learn in each will support the other as well: the Listening module in the Learning membership is actually a foundational parenting skill.  And tools like Supporting Sibling Relationships and Supporting Anxious Children that you'll learn in the Parenting membership will make being their learning guide much easier.

PARENTING MEMBERSHIP
Support your child's development, while making parenting easier

  • Understand the reasons your child's 'difficult' or confusing behavior, so you can stop walking on eggshells and be in a truly collaborative relationship
  • Extinguish today's fires, while building tools and skills to thrive in the future
  • Really enjoy spending time with your child!

If you have a child aged ~ 1-6 and things just seem HARD, the Parenting Membership will transform your family life. Perfect for parents, spouses, caregivers and even grandparents - a gift for the whole family.

LEARNING MEMBERSHIP
Helping to support your child's intrinsic love of learning

  • Suitable for children old enough to ask questions through the end of elementary school
  • Learn how to truly listen to our children - not just what they say, but to the unspoken questions that really drive their interests
  • Engage them in the dance of learning: offering encouragement and resources to propel them forward, while making sure they still 'own' the process

Perfect for parents, caregivers, teachers and pandemic pod leaders - whether you are homeschooling, thinking of homeschooling, doing Zoom-School or attending school in person.

How Does This Fit With Other Courses I've Offered?

Ongoing Support as You Navigate Your Parenting and Learning Challenges

Sometimes parents wonder how the memberships fit with the other courses and workshops that I've offered over the years.  Here's how:

Parenting Membership
(formerly the Finding Your Parenting Mojo membership)

  • If you're parenting is just more of a struggle than you'd like, the membership will help you to understand things seem so hard, and and find solutions.  You'll uncover the real reasons for your child's 'difficult' behavior, and may even see a dramatic shift in yourself and your confidence as a parent.
  • Get just the information you need and ongoing support to implement the ideas
  • Find a warm and welcoming community to guide you along the way
  • Doors open approximately every six months


Supporting Your Child's Learning Membership
(formerly the Your Child's Learning Mojo membership)

  • The membership helps you to support your child's intrinsic love of learning, and teach them how to learn.  Far from needing to coerce your child into memorizing facts; using this model your child will draw you into their own learning journey.  This method can form the entire basis of your homeschooling approach or be something you use on the weekends to supplement school.
  • This one dives deep on the reading (or watching/listening), as you essentially take a Master's level class each month on an aspect of helping your child to learn about the subjects that interest them - and get ongoing support to implement the ideas
  • Useful whether you are homeschooling, Zoom-Schooling, or as a supplement to regular school
  • A community of curious, collaborative parents is looking forward to exploring these ideas with you!
  • Doors open approximately every six months


The Confident Homeschooler course

  • Several years ago, when parents used to take a year or more to evaluate the decision to homeschool, I created a course called Your Homeschooling Mojo to help them do this.  Then when COVID hit and parents started making this decision in a weekend, I distilled the key elements into The Confident Homeschooler.  This course - short enough to binge-watch the essential components in an evening and then return to the in-depth stuff if you need it - helps you to decide whether homeschooling is right for your family.
  • This course complements the Supporting Your Child's Learning membership but does not duplicate the material in the membership
  • No community support (and a low price to match)
  • Available whenever you need it - take it before Learning Membership if you plan to use the Learning membership as a guide for homeschooling, or enroll in the Learning Membership first so you can see how homeschooling would actually work day-to-day - then get help figuring out all the extra bits (legalities, work, college...).


Pandemic Pods 'in a box' course

  • When schools closed, some parents wanted to create small 'pods' of children who would learn together.  This course gives you the information and resources you need to create a Pandemic Pod and bake social justice considerations in from the start (rather than layering them on top).
  • No community support (and a low price to match)
  • Available whenever you need it


Taming Your Triggers workshop

  • First taught as a module in the Parenting Membership, Taming Your Triggers has since been expanded into a 10-week workshop.  Learn the underlying reasons why your child's behavior leads you to lose control, and new tools to create space for responses that build a sense of connection between the two of you.
  • Support from me in a private community and on weekly calls
  • Available (possibly for the last time) in Spring 2021


Your Homeschooling Mojo course

  • (no longer offered)
  • Developed as part of the thesis for my Master's in Psychology, this course was a really deep dive into all of the aspects of the decision to homeschool - including a deep dive on the history of school, tens of hours of interviews with homeschooling families and experts, and an examination of all of the peer-reviewed research I could find on homeschooling.
  • Now parents are making this decision much more quickly, I distilled the key information into The Confident Homeschooler course.


Supporting Your Child's Learning in School course

  • (no longer offered)
  • Developed as part of the thesis for my Master's in Education, this course aimed to help parents to understand how to best work within that system to help their children.  Parents found it useful, but as my own learning shifted on this topic it felt disingenuous to focus so heavily on getting children to read and write (with a secondary focus on learning what interests them)
  • This is why I now offer the Supporting your Child's Learning membership, which can be used as a guide to homeschooling or to supplement traditional school learning
