Your powerful positive parenting solution …

Want to feel successful & confident as a parent … and gain powerful skills that’ll have your kids listening better & cooperating more in a matter of days?

A proven program for busy parents looking for answers on how to redirect their kids’ misbehavior with integrity, connection & effectiveness — it’s perfect for families who want to create a family legacy & memories that bring them pride & joy.

You care deeply about your kids & want to enjoy their childhood so badly … but let’s be freaking real for a sec … you’re struggling to get those little people to behave … WITHOUT relying on threats, yelling or bribery day in, day out.

The reality is, you’re struggling to find confidence in your parenting journey … often feeling out of control & confused about how to effectively redirect your kids’ misbehavior with firmness, kindness AND effectiveness.

It feels like you’ve tried just about everything to get to higher ground…


Punishing behavior by taking things away like favorite toys, tv, dessert & playdates, but you feel bitter at night that you “HAD TO” be the mean mom and your kids STILL don’t seem to listen the next day.


Laying the law down HARD telling your kids they HAVE to cooperate “or else” and even though it sometimes works for a day or two … the misbehavior keeps coming back (whyyyyyy – so frustrating!)


Begging & pleading, but when you catch yourself you feel embarrassed and like you’re getting walked all over (later leading to an explosive rant about being disrespected & how you’re not going to raise entitled brats, ha, been there!)


Threats have become a solid go-to for you and “if, then statements” flow out of your mouth lightning fast all day long … but you lack follow through so your kids laugh at you behind your back & know you’re not REALLY going to hold up your boundaries. (yikes, but c’mon, you know it’s true!)


You’re not proud of it, but forcing your kids to comply by grabbing wrists tighter than you’d like to admit, or dragging them kicking and screaming to time outs has you crying tears of shame & regret when you lay your head on your pillow at night.


You’ve tried just letting them have their way, maybe you’re being too gnarly? And then you realize that your kids are walking all over you & you literally have no control of your “mini-me’s”.


Bribes and rewards have become a norm for you (I mean how else would you potty train or get your kids to do what they’re supposed to? 😝) … but later realize that they still need you to nag them, or hold a carrot over their head, or they just straight disrespect your rules.


You’ve become a professional yeller & struggle with the nagging thoughts of “why do I have to raise my voice in order for my kids to listen” and then watch your kids the next day as they repeat the behavior of not listening till you scream at them – that feeling of groundhogs day is so draining!

You’ve tried taking everything they love away, from desert to devices, to favorite toys & even hugs … but these punishments feel like CRAP when you implement them & they aren’t working long-term (because your kids keep doing the same stuff!)
You feel worried that it’s too late for you & your kids and that the damage is irreversible – if you don’t find the help you need soon, your family is facing disaster.


By this point, you’ve reached a family crisis kinda situation (and heck no, this isn’t because you’re a bad parent)!

Take a deep breath for a second & put your hand on your heart … No wonder things have gotten a little out of control in your home. You only have your parents’ parenting examples to go on & you’re doing your best.

There is absolutely no judgement here.

I see you, I admire you & I get you.

There are a gazillion parenting books out there but really, who has time for them when your kid is having a temper tantrum on the floor and you’re juggling a million things.

No one handed you a firm & kind parenting manual when your child was born (boy, that would have been nice) so …

… of course you’re confused

… of course you feel out of control

… of course you have questions about how to raise your little human souls with integrity, connection & effectiveness

… of course you feel like you’re drowning in the demands of motherhood and lacking joy.

If you’re anything like me, admitting you need help feels a little vulnerable & up until now, you weren’t quite sure who to ask.

Maybe you’ve always felt like parenting should come naturally to “good moms” and that having questions & uncertainties meant you were troubled.

Or perhaps you’ve invested in a parenting program before only to NOT finish it or have trouble getting results with what you learned.

You may even feel like it’s impossible to find time to shower each day, let alone do a parenting course.

You probably REALLY want to believe there is light at the end of the tunnel if you were to learn a new way … but you struggle with doubt & maybe don’t really believe me that expanding your heart & learning new tools can strengthen your family tenfold. (again, I get why! I remember this feeling so clearly when I was drowning in parenting stress).

A decade ago I was in your exact shoes but I learned a different way that aligned with my heart & left me feeling proud (instead of guilty) each night when I laid my head on my pillow.

That saying ‘the days are long, but the years are short’ is so dang accurate. How has a decade come & gone so fast? So grateful I learned a new ‘firm & kind’ way.

This ‘firm & kind’ way of working with my kids, changed me from the inside out … and caused me to grow in areas I never even realized I needed to evolve.


Now, I spend my days deeply connected to my kids, wildly confident that I can:

creatively problem solve through messy situations

redirect misbehavior with success

and discipline with connection effectively, no matter how much my strong willed daughter pushes back or what kind of mistake gets made

It took courage to do things differently than what had been done to me growing up.

It took bravery to break generational chains so I could create family legacies & memories I was proud of.

Life now as a parent is so different than those days when I was constantly stressed, frustrated & overwhelmed with my two wild & wonderful kiddos.

Days are so much easier because I feel in control of my mind, life & environment.

The days of feeling like a victim to my kids, their tantrums, or their big emotions are way behind me and I’m able to really be the kind of mom I always dreamed I would be.

Hall – a – freaking – lujah!

I’ve developed a unique teaching style that helps parents become both self-aware (realizing our contribution to the dance is so powerful) AND self-accepting (practicing compassion & grace with ourselves when we’re human is essential).

I’ve found that the ticket to success when learning new positive parenting strategies is to actually SEE strategies in action (rather than just reading about techniques).

Because honestly, how many times have you read something and then you go to implement it and you can’t figure out how to make it work, or you can’t remember exactly what the book said.

Ultimately you fall back on what you’ve always done and it becomes a never-ending hamster wheel of try, fail, try, fail, try, fail. (this pattern is exhausting AF).

Imagine waking up every morning feeling joyful, empowered & excited to spend the day with your kids

… knowing with all confidence that you have an overflowing respectful, firm & kind parenting toolkit to access every day as you raise those precious little human souls you’ve been gifted with?

Picture living life everyday knowing confidently you are building that family legacy of your dreams … one that you are proud of & that is filled with memories that make your heart melt about the life you’ve lived.

Take a moment to feel that smile on your face that you experience when you actually enjoy spending time with your kids who matter more to you than anything else in the world.

I see how badly you want joy & peace in your home & I know you’re willing to expand your heart & learn new tools to strengthen your family, you just need help getting started.

… a deeply connected, strong family foundation of your dreams. Yep, you deserve this.

I really want to thank Fresh Start Family for all the training I’ve gotten through the Foundations Course & Bonfire Membership Program. It has not only helped me with my own kids but communication with other adults as well.

Amanda K

Our house has been SO MUCH MORE PEACEFUL since finishing the Foundations Course! My boys are fighting less, we are having less power struggles, both my husband and I are happier and it’s just more fun to parent these days. I am excited to learn and implement more! Thanks Wendy Snyder for the awesome teaching!
Amber Fox

Before I started this program, I truly felt defeated as a mom and personally just in disgust with myself knowing how inconsistent and horrible I was being to my daughter and sad to say, my husband too! The Foundations Course has given me love and light as a mommy to know that each day is a new day and to practice patience and give myself grace.
Taira Ann Dela Cruz

The things we’ve learned through the Foundations Course is PRICELESS. The lessons in this course have the power to change the world one home at a time. What an amazing gift to have prayed so hard for God to show us the way, and to have come across FSF & the Foundations Course, so we can now actually CHOOSE the way we want to parent, to have information, to have knowledge, and not just the ONE WAY that parenting has been done for generations.

Vania Barbieri-Morris

I used to fear picking my kids up from daycare/pre-school just knowing what was ahead. Now my perspective has changed tremendously and I can’t speak highly enough about Wendy and Fresh Start Family courses. It not only saved our family, but strengthened the relationship with my husband which was an added bonus! Our entire family is beginning to gain such strong trust and respect for one another and I feel more empowered than ever.
Jodi McCormick

Thank you Fresh Start Family for introducing us to the Foundations Course! It has been freeing to be at choice with our parenting, to be on the same page, to bring more light and joy to intense power struggles, and to see progress in each day! Our son is learning ways to self calm, re-do, and use his energy for good. We are learning new ways to be proactive, make agreements, give more choices and teach in a calm time. Expanding our toolkit has been transformational for our family.
Julie V.

I just finished up the Foundations course and WOW where to begin! Without a doubt our biggest struggle has been bedtime with our 3.5 year old. I am so thankful for the approach Wendy laid out. I was amazed that in a few short days of using some of Wendy’s suggestions bedtime was so much easier! It is refreshing to feel like you’re giving your kids the tools they need to think for themselves and make good decisions. I see myself coming back to the lessons over and over again and I whole hardheartedly recommend the Foundations Course to every family!
Megan H.

We absolutely loved the Fresh Start Parenting class with Wendy! It has helped us to parent our two boys the way we want to – with grace, understanding, communication and love. And rather than simply looking at how to make them do what we want right now (behavior modification), we now view our role as parents with more of an eternal perspective. It is more about building a relationship. We NEED courses like this to help us along in this crazy parenting journey! I would HIGHLY recommend this class!
Jessica Filpi

My biggest takeaway from Fresh Start Family classes was the notion of being equipped with a tool belt. If one tool doesn’t work, you can try another and see what works best for your family. I have recommended Fresh Start Family to a number of friends. This is time well spent. It will only benefit your family.
Kate Burchfield

I know this all sounds awesome, but what makes ME mom of the year?
What makes ME qualified to teach YOU about parenting?

First things first … I’m a certified positive parenting educator & family life coach but it’s so important you know that I wasn’t always so positive in my parenting walk. A decade ago, I was knee deep in despair & hopelessness raising a strong willed daughter while juggling a colicky newborn & a career.

I’ve used the same positive parenting & personal development / self-growth tools I now teach – in my own life to overcome anxiety, strained relationships with my kids, stressed days and intense misbehaviors.

My goal is to make it easier for families like yours to get solid, positive, effective parenting education and stay consistent in growing WITH our kids along each stage of the journey.

Families who work with me expand their parenting toolkit & face each day with an empowered & creative mindset.

I absolutely love helping families who struggle to find peace, joy, connection and ease in their days with their kids.

Parents who are honest about the fact that having kids and knowing what to do with them is the hardest job they’ve ever faced in their life!

I’m obsessed with serving families who desperately want to feel confident in their parenting approach and are totally over the guilt that comes at night after “losing their cool 15 times a day” (oh have I been there before!).

I’m not JUST a parenting coach (and definitely not one of those teachers who will tell you everything you’re doing wrong & that you need to do better & be better), but I am ALSO a life coach, professional encourager, accountability consultant, podcast show host, online course creator, business owner & the kind of person who will always make you feel seen, heard & understood (I’ve had clients beg me to move in with them many times, offered to make bracelets that say “What would Wendy do?” and even had a Mom from the Ukraine name her baby after me! WHATTTT? … I know dude!).

I’ve been working with families as a parenting educator since 2010 & I’ve literally taught positive parenting workshops, seminars & courses to thousands of families. I GET IT. I GET YOU. YES, I’M THAT HELPER YOU’VE BEEN PRAYING FOR.

I deeply care about each & every family I work with and am committed to getting them results. I’m a momma to two young wild & wonderful munchkins + a business owner, best friend to my husband, ocean feign, lover of spicy margaritas, bulletproof coffee & dark chocolate and a giant fan of surfing and Jesus.

I’ve created a “pinch me, is this really my reality” life where I get to help other families create the family of their dreams while also intentionally building my own dream family everyday. I spend my days feeling confident & powerful as a parent… while also being insanely close & connected to my kids – I want you to have that too.

I host The Fresh Start Family Show, a feel good, helpful podcast for busy parents all about relationships & raising kids with integrity. I’m a relentless encourager & advocate for families and I create online programs that help parents end painful generational cycles by expanding their positive parenting toolkit, so they can create family legacies & memories they are proud of.


I understand you want to spend your money wisely … after receiving hundreds & hundreds & hundreds of success stories from students (no joke, below is a scroll showing our current 500+ page success story google doc) …

… I believe so deeply in this curriculum & know for a fact that this course will change your life.

I’m extremely proud of the products I create and I know anyone who buys them and implements the strategies will be extremely happy with their purchase.

That’s why I’m offering a 14-day money back guarantee. While I can’t guarantee this will be a magic pill for every strife in your parenting walk, I can guarantee your satisfaction with the quality of the program and the time and stress it will save you as a parent.

Of course, If you’re not happy with the program, I will refund your money within 14 days of your purchase.

So where does this leave us?

Well …. Here’s the thing …

Nothing Changes … if nothing changes.

Have you ever heard that saying? It’s so simple and SO true.

Something that’s happened to me over & over again is that I will have incredible parents reach out to me on social media to ask questions about my programs. I support & encourage them with info about The Foundations Course & then I don’t hear from them again, till years later, when they contact me again saying they are STILL struggling hard.

I scroll back and see that I had communicated with them a year or two again, but they never became a student … and they are still stressed, worried, unconfident & lacking joy in their days as a parent.

You see, nothing changes … if you never step forward to get the help you need & do something different.

My heart breaks for these families because I know they’ve missed out on precious memories & endured massive amounts of stress & heartbreak from not moving forward & starting their learning journey with Fresh Start Family.

I don’t want the same thing to happen to you.

I’ve finished the Foundations Course and things are really starting to feel more fluid! After a challenging situation with my 6 year old son yesterday, I was able to remain calm & respond with firm kindness & integrity, as well as teach using compassionate discipline. It felt so good to have connection with him instead of doing what I may have done in the past – snap to anger and give him a lecture about how I’m his mom and he needs to be respectful. This new way I’ve learned to parent him & teach him important life lessons feels so much better!

Amy F

I see you wanting more … wanting things to be different. Wanting to find joy & peace & connection in your days with your kids. Wanting behavior to be better. Wanting your self-confidence to be higher.

These wants and dreams are achievable & are yours for the taking … IF you step forward with getting the support you need to build the family foundation of your dreams.

Stop & picture yourself & your family 4 weeks from now. Do you see yourself thriving or surviving?

Do you see yourself connected, close & having fun with your kids?

>>> or are you still bickering, threatening & counting down the moments till bedtime?

Does the course work for families with kids of all ages?
Absolutely. A lot of this curriculum is theory based, meaning the methodology will apply to all stages of life. Extra support regarding application of strategies to different life stages can be found in The Bonfire.
Can I really expect to see results by applying the strategies?
YES, families…this stuff works! Trust me, learn the methods, apply the strategies, try again when it doesn’t go perfectly and have faith in the seeds you’re planting. I only teach methods that I’ve personally tried in my own home with my own kids, so I know what I’m teaching you works and you can always trust me to be real with you.
I’m really busy, do you think I’ll be able to do all the lessons?
Commit to it and make it happen! I’ve designed this course to be comprehensive, yet also as brief as possible, so you can get the course done in minimal time. One module a week (3 hours) for four weeks is what I recommend you aim for.
Does this program have a start and end date?
Nope. This is a course that you purchase and can use on your own, anytime. You will always have access to the program so when a new stage of your kiddo’s life turns challenging or when parenting throws you another curve ball – you’ll have an easy-to-follow course at your fingertips.
What makes Fresh Start Family different?
I’ve been told that I’m a perfect mix between Brene Brown & Mother Theresa … (gosh I almost cried when I got this nice compliment!) … I’m full of life, fun to hang out with & dedicated to the success of my students. My heart is HUGE for families & best of all I GET PARENTS RESULTS!
Is this course just for parents with problems?
This is not your parents parenting course. Don’t feel bad that you want help with Parenting. All Parents need help … the wise ones follow through with it.
What if I'm alone with no support?
It takes a village & the Fresh Start Family village will help you understand that you are NOT alone. Surround yourself with a supportive community, we’re here to help. Even if you don’t have a supportive spouse or extended family, this program will help you. It’ll take courage & bravery to lead though by saying yes today. **I also lead a group membership program called The Bonfire that you can learn more about HERE (if you’re ready for more right now) that’ll be a great place for you to hang out after you finish the Foundations Course. You’ll be able to ask questions & be in community with other like minded families from all over the world! **If your spouse is not on board “yet” – we have a podcast episode to help you move forward with learning even though you worry about having no support. You can listen here:
What if my kids are really bad?
First off, you have to trust me, your kids aren’t broken & neither are you … you just need support and I’m here to help. Second … I’ve worked with kids & parents who are in serious patterns of power struggles & revenge misbehaviors … and helped them do complete 180’s in their homes. THIS STUFF WORKS … if you’re willing to learn, have an open heart & do the work!
How do I access the info?
You will receive an email immediately after your purchase, giving you the link to access your Fresh Start Family Account with all of the files and videos that come with this program.
What if I'm not tech savvy?
All you need is good wi-fi, the ability to check emails & click a few links. YOU CAN DO THIS!
What if I decide this isn't for me?
I stand by my 100% money-back guarantee within 14 days of purchase. If you purchase & then decide this program is not for you … no worries. BUT, I will also tell you that I’m obsessed with serving families with ALL my heart so they can get massive results – have a suggestion? Give me your thoughts, tell me what you need to find success, I’m ALWAYS open
What if I need more support?

As a Foundations Course Graduate


A CONFIDENT GAMEPLAN & step by step plan of action to create a strong family foundation built on trust, cooperation, connection, respect & firm-kindness … while living daily as a parent with a healthy mind who takes healthy actions & who has healthy – deeply connected relationships with your kids (and spouse)!

(Without spending a gazillion dollars on future therapist sessions for your child or yourself … or future holidays alone because the stress of parenting has wrecked havoc on your relationships, health & life)
I spent this last weekend finishing up the foundations course with my husband! I feel so empowered!!! I have made a diligent effort the past few days to be conscious in my actions and words with my 3.5 year old son and have seen a SIGNIFICANT difference overall in our interactions, his behavior, my mood and how we have handled not so great moments. I am thankful to have found Fresh Start Family and to be learning and growing each day alongside my kids!
