WHAT IS A CHILDPROOF PARENT?

As parents we childproof our environment to make the world safe for our children. We do this because our children don’t know what they don’t know about how to keep themselves safe, physically, mentally, and even emotionally. 

This principle applies to the parent in the same way. We get to be safe, too. In the parent’s case, we get to ensure that our whole self is cared for, even though we now have children. We also get to shore up the skills needed to help cushion us from what our children bring us. 

Childproof parents simultaneously empower and preserve themselves as individuals while raising happy, healthy, respectful, and responsible children. 

CHILDPROOF PARENTING is about you and you as parent.

THE SIMPLE STEP BY STEP TECHNIQUES CHANGED MY PARENTING
"Melissa’s course made our family a calmer, happier, more fun
place to be. The principles were easy to grasp, but it was the practical, real-world approach that was transformative. I learned simple, step-by-step techniques that changed my parenting, and was delighted at the immediate improvement in my kids' behavior! I felt confident about how to approach any parenting situation – setting boundaries became straightforward, leaving our family with the energy to focus on the fun part of having two preschoolers!” -Gillian, mother of 2 busy kiddos
I FEEL MORE EMPATHY, SELF- AWARE AND COMPASSION
"I found this course late at night, struggling to juggle between family, 2 girls under 5 and community responsibilities. The course has changed the way I experience myself as a partner, mother and parenting. I gained confidence in my parenting that played a crucial part in raising children with empathy, self awareness and compassion." -Anat, mother of Liel 6, Naomi 22 months
I AM A HAPPIER PERSON, WIFE AND MOTHER
"When I signed up for Melissa's course I was in a bad place. I was not taking care of myself and I needed to learn how to do that better. Her course taught me that in order for me to be my best-happiest self, I need to make myself a priority. One year later I have made myself more of a priority. As a result, I am a happier person, wife, and mother." -Karen, mother of a preschooler

Why  Melissa & the Childproof Parent Approach?  
Quite Simple:  She has been teaching it for years, and parents like you are seeing results!

REBECCA LOVED THE TEACHING METHODS USED IN THE COURSE
"Melissa's knowledge, style, and teaching methods were great. I really loved the "fill-in-the-blank" handouts she used. I took lots of notes and will continue to go back and review both my notes and the videos! I'm glad that we have lifetime access because I know that I will revisit the material."
Rebecca, mother to 3 year old in princess phase
THIS COURSE FACILITATED MEANINGFUL DISCUSSIONS FOR ADRIENNE AND HER HUSBAND
"The first few "groundwork" modules were every bit as valuable to our family as the discipline ones. They facilitated many meaningful discussions that helped us become a stronger team. The length and content of the modules were perfect and well presented. The style made the content easy to understand and the specific examples made it easier to see how the approaches translate to an actual situation."
Adrienne, parent of a preschooler & toddler

BLAKE FEELS MORE CONFIDENT AND CONNECTED TO HIS DAUGHTER
"After reflecting on the values we would like to nurture in our children during our class, Melissa then asked us to make a list of all the things our children do that drive us crazy. And as we stared at that frightening list, Melissa shared something I will never forget: "In each of these upsetting behaviors is an opportunity to nurture those values." Melissa is uniquely skilled at helping parents find solutions to the many challenges of raising children while always keeping that bigger picture in mind.
Blake, Father to Gemma
COLETTE IS A HAPPIER AND CALMER PARENT
"This program provided me with effective tools to parent my son. My son responded almost immediately to even small changes in how I approach our interactions. I am a happier and calmer parent as a result and frequently refer back to the program materials when I need a personal "mini-refresher". Melissa has great energy and a wealth of parenting knowledge that I'm truly grateful to have tapped into."
Colette, Mother to Toddler
