ABCs for Empowering Kids™

These Three Keys End Yelling, Demands, Disrespect, and Worries So You Can Have Peace of Mind and Happier Kids


Do you ever worry about your kids?

This mother did...

A mother couldn’t figure out for weeks why her toddler son, who used to love his daycare, kept coming home sad and not wanting to go back the next day. She considered changing his daycare. But she sought help and Annie coached her to ask her son a certain empowering question. The mother expressed her doubt that her toddler would understand the question, but Annie encouraged her to give it a try.

When the mom used that empowerment tool, to her surprise, he got it. She noticed, too, her son’s sad mood totally changed instantly, and he began talking about all the happy things that happened at daycare that day. The next day, at drop off... no difficult parting, no clinging, no tears. Later, at pickup, no down mood. The mother texted Annie: “That is such a magical tool!”

Well, that magical tool also turned these situations around…

  • A frantic teenager yells, “I need new friends!” and tells her mom why. The mother used that same magical tool and her daughter’s shoulders relaxed and she gratefully said, “Thanks Mom. I love you.”
  • A 12 year old boy's angry outbursts in school, the last one included him throwing a chair against the classroom wall - got him kicked out of the school. When Annie used that magical tool with him, relief washed over him, and he gave Annie a big hug. His mom enrolled her happy tween at a new school. Anger issue — a thing of the past.
  • A 20 year old scuba diver began having a panic attack during a night dive, but then remembered the magical tool and used it herself. She called her mom afterward and said, “It’s my favorite of all the tools you’ve taught me.”
  • A mother felt pain in her shoulder, and it disappeared when her son reminded her to use that magical tool.
  • A 17 year old girl cut classes for weeks to secretly drink away her angst. Within seconds of experiencing the magical tool, the darkness that plagued her dissolved. She stopped drinking and a month later, the teenager’s mother supported her choice to take the GED and go to community college, which she thought her mother would never go for.

Knowing this magical tool alone is gold for changing some big stresses in your life and your kid’s life.

It’s Simple. Quick. Easy.

It’s just one empowering tool you’ll learn in the ABCs for Empowering Kids™.

We know parenting presents many different challenges. Which of these do you find challenging (and tiring)?

  • Bedtime and nap time
  • Mealtime
  • Screentime
  • Addiction to electronics
  • Potty training
  • Homework
  • Toddler meltdowns
  • Teenage mood swings
  • Power struggles
  • Social Media
  • Dislike of school
  • Drugs at parties
  • Siblings hitting one each other
  • Needy kids - especially when you're on the phone!
  • Lack of Me-Time (without parent guilt) so that you can show up for your kids
  • Being present with your kids while juggling life
  • Knowing that your kid is always safe
  • Peer pressure
  • Knowing what to say to your child when self doubt and self sabotage show up
  • Being able to separate out your negative emotions and triggers when interacting with kids
  • Handling food intolerances and chronic illness with others who don't get it
  • Having discord with spouse regarding raising your children
  • Sleep deprivation

We know what it’s like being drained from your kids’ intense feelings and juggling their needs and schedules or worried about their choices. We’ve been through and know the frustrations that come with toddler tantrums, the teenager sassy talk or withdrawn silence, expectations unfulfilled, and oh, your lack of Me-Time.

If you don’t like seeing your kid in distress, but you know struggles are part of life and want to empower your child to handle them with ease and confidence rather than depend on you to bulldoze those struggles out of their way, this course is for you.

If you’re tired of the demands and disrespect that your kids (or you) dish out, this course is for you.

If you’re willing to explore different ways of communicating with your kids so that you get cooperation and connection, this course is for you.

How can you handle your moments of exhaustion and worry and doubt that you’re doing the right thing for your kid when all you really wish for is peace of mind that they’re happy and safe and getting the best out of life?

Use the ABCs for Empowering Kids.

How is this different from the mainstream parenting programs?

With the ABCs, we show you how to uncover, access, and trust your awareness of what you truly know and what your child actually knows regarding the root of a problem or what is required to create something different for your child.

Awareness is empowering!

Let’s face it, every family is different. Every mother and every child is different. What works for one child, doesn't work for another. What works for one family doesn’t work for another. What causes anger for one person might not cause anger in another. If trying to figure it all out is exhausting, give the ABCs a try.

During this course adventure, you're going to….

  • Eliminate what prevents you from using the ABCs to empower kids
  • Change your pattern of reacting to the child's disruptive, disrespectful, and inappropriate behavior
  • Learn different and effective ways of communicating with your kids
  • Receive real life examples of the ABCs so you can start applying them even before the course is completed
  • Practice using the ABCs within the course... as well as in between the three sessions.
  • Experience increased confidence, both you and the kids
  • Enjoy being with kids in a way you never thought possible

Each week of this 3 week course, Empowerment Coaches Annie Chin Taylor, M.Ed and Mary Dravis-Parrish, author of Empowered Parents Empowering Kids, will introduce a new element that will build on the one from the week before. You'll get insights, tools, examples, and short exercises that will allow you to apply the key elements immediately and easily.

What participants have said about the course...

"Before the program, I struggled with what to do during temper tantrums & behaviors with my two-year old. I questioned if I was being a "good" or "bad" parent. Like a lot of parents, I had a lot of doubts and uncertainty. After the program I felt empowered. Feeling this way, therefore, helped me to empower my son as well. My confidence level has increased and I'm stepping into my own special authenticity as a parent. I'm also allowing my son to develop his own brand of authenticity which looks quite different than mine. This has allowed me to avoid anger, and instead create greater understanding between us both. This is a parenting class that provides something different that actually works. The best part is that I will be able to use the ABC skills with my child for a lifetime."

~ Amanda Finch, Colorado

"My hope as a parent was that my child did not have to go through what I had experienced as a child and I wanted more choices for my child. The course was excellent. I have been awakened to new choices that I can make that will benefit us all as a family versus the benefit of the baby only. We have been using the tools that we were given on a daily basis in order to utilize them fully. After taking the course I have been more aware and present with our infant son and we have opened up more communication between our family unit. We plan on using these techniques throughout our lives and help our son to continue his use of these skills. I highly recommend this course to new parents and parents of adult children, it's never too late to make life easier. Thank you both so much for these tools Mary and Annie!"

~ Reuben P, New Mexico


As a seasoned teacher, I see the benefits of using the "ABCs for Empowering Kids" in the classroom. Here’s a breakthrough I had with one student. He was disrupting and distracting the class and saying how bored he was. I applied the ABCs and he became more focused and stopped distracting others! The first element in the course showed me how to respond differently with my students and how to connect them to what they know; building their confidence. These tools provide a shift that allows change to occur. I have been more empowered by this course and look forward to continuing to apply the elements of the ABCs.
