Understanding Yourself in the Tween and Young Teen YearsSign up Now!
If parenting feels really hard to you right now, you are not alone.
We live in challenging times, and parents and kids are struggling.
After working with hundreds and hundreds of parents of tweens and young teens, I have seen a pattern emerge. The pendulum tends to swing dramatically from too controlling to throwing up our hands and giving up. In either case, we feel out of control and our tweens need us to stay steady. Not perfect. Steady.
So, I created a course to steady us. (And I mean US, I am in this, too).
You CAN grow and cultivate an easier, more peaceful relationship with your child starting TODAY, and get support and encouragement so that those changes LAST.
A course to help you identify your specific struggles and triggers, understand the role of connection, manage your family dynamics with family meetings, and figure out consequences and punishments.
Grow and cultivate a calm, understanding, more connected relationship with your tween or young teen starting TODAY.Sign up here!
BREAKING NEWS: NO! Parenting tweens and young teens can be, a-hem, just a little bit...FROUGHT sometimes.
Our culture, from the moment you had kids, decided you needed to know what to do, all of the time. First of all, that’s not even possible and second of all, our tweens/young teens do not need for us to know everything.
We don’t do ourselves any favors when we decide we need to have all the answers at all times, and your teens and tweens can spot a phony a mile away.
Parenting is HARD and teens and tweens can be complicated beings. Getting support doesn’t mean you’re clueless; it means you know how important it is to ask for help when you need it.
It’s self-care, and truly, it’s just how life works. We can ALL use a little backup now and then.
An online class that never closes.
We figure out what areas of parenting young teens or tweens evoke the strongest responses from you.
We create a plan to decrease the struggles in your family, as well as deepen your connection to and understanding of your child.

You grow and cultivate a more peaceful and easy relationship with your child.
After working with hundreds of parents of tweens and young teens, I have seen a pattern emerge. The pendulum tends to swing dramatically from too controlling to throwing up our hands and giving up. In either case, we feel out of control AND our tweens need us to stay steady.
So, I created a course to steady us. (And I mean US, I am in this, too). By assessing how we feel about complicated tween topics first, we can then develop a game plan to parent our tweens through this fraught (and great!) time of their lives.
If we suppress how we feel about tough tween topics, my experience has taught me that we are likely to react rather than respond, hurting our relationships with our tweens when they often need us most.
You will also have worksheets to better understand your buttons, as well as how to co-create solutions with your tween on any topic you can imagine.
You will be able to start applying the things you learn to your parenting life RIGHT AWAY!
“[This class] makes motherhood feel so much less lonely. It takes a village and this is my village.”
- Jen G., Mother of 2
“This class has changed the ways I approach conflicts with my children. It’s also changed how I view their reactions to life. Both have resulted in more peace, a happier family, and healthier children (and parents).”
“Meghan has completely changed the way I parent. Focusing on connecting and building trust while maintaining boundaries is so much more effective and, frankly, fun than yelling all the time! I’m also so grateful for the way she builds social justice and empathy into her practice and teaching. #gamechanger”
- Margery S., Mother of 3
“If I could convince every parent to use Meghan Leahy, I would. Her smart, savvy and non-judgmental approach helped us tackle issues — big and small — we’d been struggling with for years. We’re better parents today thanks to her.”
“Meghan’s class has changed my parenting and my relationships (including with myself) for the better!”
- Sara T., Mother of 1
“Meghan is awesome because she takes all this brain-based parenting stuff that most of us did not grow up with and that is not particularly intuitive and makes it APPROACHABLE and ACHIEVABLE in a way that other teachers or books had not been for me.“
“Meghan’s class has some of the most helpful and practical information out there on how to better connect with your child so you both can do better. It’s worth its cost and then some. Truly!”
