Parenting for you hasn’t been what you imagined & has you exhausted, frustrated & worried, instead of joyful & confident.
You’re sick & tired of relying on threats & raising your voice to get your kids to listen..
You’re stuck in a “Groundhog’s Day” cycle because you’ve inherited an outdated parenting model that no longer works to influence kids to listen & cooperate well. Plus … you are raising kids that are different & part of a new generation.
I’ve been there before too, so I totally get it.
A decade ago, I found myself in the pits of parenting with a strong willed toddler, a colicky baby & worry about everything from “Is something wrong with my daughter if she literally pushes back about ev-ry-THANG” to “Why is this so hard, i must be doing something wrong – this much drama with a child can NOT be normal” to “How am I going to get through another day when all I want to do is run away & hide from my kids?”.
It feels slightly embarrassing to say all that, but it’s the truth.
My first 5 years of motherhood were rocky to say the least.
But the good news is that I found a simple solution that works for me & that works for other parents too.
Imagine learning a new way of firm (AND kind) parenting so you can end painful generational parenting cycles and create family legacies & memories YOU are proud of?
All while getting your kids to cooperate with your rules and boundaries with ease.
Parenting your kids with calm & confidence each day in a way that causes them to do what’s asked of them because they WANT to (not because they HAVE to) … because you’re helping to build essential life skills that have them behaving well & being respectful when you’re NOT looking!

More trust & respect from your kids
Expect days to be joyful & full of memory making moments (no more – wishing your days away)
One of the most common objections I hear as a parenting educator & family life coach is: I would love to do things differently (I’m sick of threats, yelling, & punishing), if I just knew a better way.
Imagine moving through moments of pushback from your kiddos with integrity & success … where you hold strong to your limits AND show kindness & compassion to your child … resulting in everyone doing what they’re told AND feeling respected. Imagine those moments becoming your norm, day in & day out. Juggling parenthood like a calm, compassionate, and confdent boss!
Or maybe you’ve tried just asking with kindness but they just don’t listen & you end up feeling permissive (like a doormat, not cool).
You’ve tried being super stern & telling them they HAVE to listen, but they don’t care & keep misbehaving (which is SO embarrassing, uggghhh).
You’ve tried threatening them that if they don’t listen then … 3 … 2 … 1 …. but you often don’t follow through & just end up feeling frustrated & irritated that you always HAVE to MAKE them behave
You’ve tried straight begging them to listen “Please please please just do what you’re asked”, but you end up feeling weak, like no one truly respects you.
You’ve tried literally forcing them to cooperate with your requests or rules (ever done the car seat squish?) … but you literally feel like a crazy person physically restraining a small, very strong human (while your nervous system is on fire with stress).
You’ve tried bribing & rewarding them with everything from jelly beans to toys at target but they still keep pulling the dogs tail and smacking their sister.
You’ve tried yelling as it seems like the ONLY thing that “works” to get them to listen, but raising your voice is exhausting & embarrassing you & just doesn’t feel right in your heart (plus, they STILL end up misbehaving again).
You’ve tried just caving in, maybe you’re being too hard on them? And then you realize that your kids are walking all over you & you literally have no control of these wild monkeys.
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 like time is “running out” and seriously that your family is going to implode if you don’t find help.

After learning the firm & kind process, my 3 year old son has made great progress! It’s now rare that he acts out toward his sister and is getting so much better at his demonstrating self control when he’s angry. Today, his teachers even told me “Whatever you are doing at home, it’s working!” and I know it’s the strategies and attitude that Fresh Start Family encouraged me to implement in our home!
I want to express how grateful I am for finding this work. I have been using the firm and kind process regularly & things in our home have improved greatly. I am also so grateful that we now know how to get through “misbehavior moments” with love, kindness and integrity! Thanks for everything Fresh Start Family!!!

Fresh Start Family has helped me understand that I can choose to find the joy in the messy & show up with integrity. I’ve learned from Wendy to listen with all my heart & how to be firm AND kind, as well as modeling forgiveness. In the past week alone, there have been some really really precious memories made thanks to my ability to parent by choice with effective, firm & kind parenting tools that Fresh Start Family has taught me. I feel like I am now free to choose how I respond to the challenges of parenting. Thank you Fresh Start Family for this gift.
My training & credentials: I’m a certified parent educator registered with the International Network for Children and Families, as well as a certified family life coach, registered with Your Infinite Life Training & Coaching. 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.
Relatable, Open, Honest, Real: As a busy mom of two, I’ve used this exact curriculum to transform my life as a mom during the last decade of my life. The concepts I teach now are ONLY ones that I’ve personally tried in my own home with my own children so I KNOW they are insanely effective. When I teach, I tell real life stories of my where I’ve messed up & gotten off track … and also share authentic examples of what it looks like to apply Firm & Kind Parenting strategies in real life with 2 very strong willed kids & a nutso busy lifestyle.
I’ve helped families get MASSIVE results in their homes with positive parenting: I’ve worked with clients with every kind of kiddo imaginable, from ALL over the world (My Bonfire membership program has members from over 10 countries!) and I’ve seen what works & what doesn’t.
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!”). 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. (ummmmmm, yassssss, I am THE HELPER you’ve been searching for!).
I’m a KIND human. 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.
The education & support Wendy provides is meaningful and is making a difference in our home. She is so relatable because of her real world experience that she shares so openly & honestly through her teaching & coaching. Fresh Start Family helps me stay committed to growing into the husband and dad I need to be.
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 believe parenthood is a marathon, not a sprint and that it takes a village to raise good humans. Parenthood is much too precious of a journey to spend struggling every day. I’m here to help you find more peace, more joy & more success in your daily parenting walk!
Whether we have a little or a lot in common, we are ALL brothers and sisters in this insane beautiful crazy community called parenthood and I know we’re going to become good friends. I can’t wait to get started encouraging & supporting you!
Fresh Start Family has helped me completely shift my mindset as a parent. Once I shifted my mind, I was able to get on my child’s level to be creative & problem solve (redirect) misbehavior effectively!
I cannot express enough my gratitude for Fresh Start Family for helping strengthen my bond with my girls. I understand my kids so much better now after working with Wendy. To fully see what my kids are trying to express to me has made me more compassionate and a better communicator! There is nothing more important to me than trying my best as a mother to teach and guide my children to lead a life of integrity and Fresh Start Family has given me the tools and continued guidance to achieve it.
