Michelle McVittie, Child Life Specialist, Speaker, Parenting Coach and Author

I specialize in strong-willed children, ADHD, anxiety, and parenting teens.

Ages 5 to teens

Your child wants to feel heard, but you don’t feel heard yourself.  Your child wants it their way ALL THE TIME – and it’s beginning to feel like they’re running the house. 

You love your child dearly but something has to change fast!

Get Your Child to Listen, The 1st Time You Ask!
