Do you ever feel like you were raised by wolves?

You are not the only one.

Listen, if you don’t have good role models for parenting, of course you’re going to struggle. 

I understand. I’ve worked with hundreds of parents who felt just like you.

What you need — what you deserve — is a safe space to work it all out. A place where you can get in touch with your inner wisdom (I know you’ve got tons), where you can grow your personal AND parenting confidence, and where you can become the happy, healthy and effective parent you were meant to be.

That’s what I offer you in the You Are Not Your Mother membership.

Dawn Friedman MSEd

This membership program is not just about how to parent effectively (getting kids to bed, getting chores done, etc.) but about the potential for parenting to be transformative — to bring us to our best selves, our most loving selves, and our most contented and confident selves. This is big work and it’s hard work but you don’t have to do it alone. It is my passion and my privilege to work with struggling parents like you. 

If you had parents who were overbearing...

you might worry about being overbearing or about swinging too far in the opposite direction to being neglectful.

If you had parents who were neglectful...

you might worry about fostering independence without making your kids feel abandoned.

If you had parents who were explosive or depressed or anxious...

you might worry about appropriately managing your own feelings of anger, sadness and anxiety.

If you secretly worry that everyone else knows how to be a parent and that you'll never figure it out then you are in the right place!​​

You don't have to repeat your parents' mistakes. It stops here, now, with YOU.
