How To Reduce Tantrums, Form Lasting Connections, And Increase Cooperation In Your Home
Hey, my name is Rachel, and I have 5 kids 7 years old and under. Though some days threaten to overtake my sanity and there are constant demands on me as a mother, I've figured out how to support my children emotionally while still expecting them to mind.
It can be draining day after day when your little ones are constantly melting down, pitching fits, or refusing to do what you ask.
We want our children to feel loved and understood, but we also need them to listen to us so they don't end up burnt by the oven or unattended in a busy parking lot!
The truth is that kids' emotions are Large and In Charge and we cannot make them go away.There is no trick to get your kids to never cry or whine or fuss. That would simply not be human...
No amount of connection or cuddling will mean your children don't get angry, frustrated, or upset.
This is why how we handle our kids' emotions is so important!
And honestly, it's so much easier than you think.
There's no time limit or formula to help your children calm down, it's simply knowing what your child needs from you.
"You provide us mothers, even if we have worldly knowledge, with practical LOVING advice and a judgment free environment to grow and learn together."
Over the years I've created a ton of resources for busy moms looking for solutions. They all rest on the blog and in my shop and sell month after month to moms all over the world.
But I realized I didn't have one comprehensive resource to help mom navigate their kids' EMOTIONS.
The tantrums, the whining, the crying, the resistance, the DRAMA! To fill that gap, I've created a class called Emotional Overload.
Emotional Overload was created to help you do the following:
Understand why your children seem to Overreactor have Exaggerated Emotions that are hard to calm.
Learn what type of response your children need from you when they are struggling (hint: you don't have to always be happy)
Grasp the importance of connection both you and your child needs without falling prey to the "Connection Is Everything" trap that leaves you completely drained and likely with entitled kids.
"What do I do when my daughter doesn’t respect the word ‘no’ and thinks she’s the boss of the household?"
We all want our kids to feel loved.
We want our kids to feel valued and respected.
We also want to them to not lose it at the drop of a hat and - maybe just maybe - to actually do what we ask them to do.
This is where Emotional Overload comes in.
This class will teach you why children have such strong emotions (and why you do too!) and how to help them feel loved and understood without feeling like you are becoming a doormat!
"When are tantrums disobedience and when are they just the overflow of emotions? Do I ever give in to any request in the midst of a tantrum?"
If emotions are high at your house and you're always bouncing back and forth between being too harsh then feeling guilty then being too lenient... and continuing the cycle...
Emotional Overload will help you do the following:
Learn the concept of the Emotional Basement and how it applies to your child (and the whole family)
See how emotional coaching plays out in real world examples
Be released from the idea that you are supposed to make sure your children are always happy
And As A BONUS...
And to top it all off, I've included nearly an hour and a half of BONUS content where I answer specific reader questions about their own children.
I received so many emails about the topic of emotions and obedience and I decided to create some separate videos addressing them all.

And then in Bonus Video #3 I go into these questions:

(03:32) Every time I don’t give my kids exactly what they want they have a meltdown!
(05:23) How do you start having firm boundaries with your 3 year old after you haven’t really had any his whole life?
(07:29) Is it better to give your toddler’s alone time, to soothe them, or to let their tantrums pass when they are having a tantrum?
(17:00) It’s hard to think of consequences to give kids that relate to behavior, how do I do this?
Friend, if you need some support in the area of emotions and obedience... Emotional Overload is for you.
I have been where you are - I AM WHERE YOU ARE - and know that freedom comes with knowing we're connected with our kids and knowing our own limits and boundaries are being respected.
