As a parent with a 1, 2 or 3 year old...

Navigating the emotional toddler stage can be a handful as littles continuously test your limits (aka push your buttons) and try out your patience. 

Their big emotions + frustrations also often end up in massive meltdowns or tantrums, and chances are sometimes you feel helpless not knowing how to help them, or you feel frustrated and exhausted because you feel like you're constantly walking on eggshells afraid something will set them off.

In this online course we’re going to get to the core reason why tantrums are happening in your family, and you’ll get simple actionable strategies on how to prevent tantrums, how to deal with them in the moment, and how to move on from them.

More Confident!

Kaedra K.

I am so happy to have found Cherrie’s classes. Courses with her, including this tantrum course, have helped me find and refine my parenting approach. I now understand more of what my little one is thinking and feeling during those rough times, and I feel way more confident and prepared to respond to my LO’s emotional storms. As a whole it has helped me become more grounded, secure, and calm in my parenting philosophy.

Extremely Rewarding

Michelle P.

Working with Cherrie through her online class was both informative and extremely rewarding. Having the classes at our disposal to accommodate our time was great. Not only did it confirm our existing teachings but brought on new avenues to help our little one. It was the perfect time for us and we continue to use these guidelines daily. We have noticed positive changes and reactions from our son. Thank you so much!

Highly Recommended

Serhat S.

I would highly recommend this course for every parent. I loved the structure of the course, which made perfectly sense to me. It gave me a good insight of what my 3 year old feels when she has a tantrum and what I need to do to help her. Thank you very much for all the guidance, Cherrie!
Abi G.

Clear + Concise

Abi G.

I enjoyed the course very much. Cherrie provided very clear and concise information on how to deal with specific situations as well as providing the rationale as to why. After taking the course I feel able to deal with difficult behaviours and feel that I am well equipped as my little one moves further into toddlerhood.

Less Tantrums (all around)!

Steph S.

This course has been so invaluable to me as a parent of a toddler. It is broken down into manageable chunks, with straightforward, easy to follow videos and optional reflection exercises that I highly recommend doing! These reflections were key in figuring out how the course content related to me and my son personally, and what strategies would be most effective for us. Cherrie doesn't give you a bunch of tricks to manipulate your child into 'behaving', but rather helps you understand the roots of your child's behaviour and how to respectfully and compassionately guide them through their big emotions. Since completing the course, I find my understanding of and empathy towards my child has grown, and my ability to handle his meltdowns has increased, thus resulting in fewer tantrums (on his part, and mine!) all around. Thank you, Cherrie!

Invaluable Parenting Tool

Katherine T.

Cherrie’s Toddler Tantrum course is interactive and highly interesting as she adopts several different methods to assist with our learning. We can also share and learn from each other via the Facebook group. We were given weekly exercises to do which helped us reflect on our learning and parenting style. It’s an invaluable parenting tool!
