What You Will Learn How to Do In This Workshop
No. Parents often feel they want a specific meal plan to help their child lose weight - but the problem is that most kids will not eat half the things I would put on such a list! Plus, what if it's their birthday? What if they have a party? What if it's Halloween...and on and on. I provide you with behavioral strategies and suggestions about what types of foods will help keep your child full and energized. You will learn why diets are not a good solution and how to help your child have a positive relationship with food instead.
This is a six-week program but it is entirely self-paced. Want to binge all the content in 3 days? You can! Want to do just 15 minutes per day? Fine. You can skip a day and dedicate the time when you have it. I will keep you on track with emails and check-ins throughout the six weeks.
You will have access to all of the materials and videos for 3 months after the course opens. You will be able to download all the tools, trackers and tip sheets to keep forever. After 3 months, you will no longer have access to the video lessons. If you need more time to watch the video lessons, you can enroll in the course again.
When the course opens, you will receive a username and login by email. Just open the workshop and watch the videos. It is simple and easy. There are clear instructions about how to download your worksheets. I have designed this workshop to be accessible and stress-free.
This program is for parents. The reason I do not have a workshop for children is because they all have very different learning styles and abilities to understand information. If you want to share a video with a child, you certainly can, but it is also OK to take this entire course without your child ever knowing.
The next workshop starts on January 1, 2022. I stay very involved and connected with you throughout the program, which is why this is not an automatic course that anyone can start on any day. The six-week plan is based on small steps at a time and I will guide you the whole way. I limit the amount of participants in each group so that I can stay high touch and provide support for everyone enrolled.
You can try the workship risk-free for 7 days after the course begins. If you decide it is not for you, simply send me an email and I will refund your tuition, no questions asked. Your access to the materials and videos will end at the time of refund.
No. Although we have offered Facebook groups in the past, many parents felt they wanted to be more anonymous while taking this course. We do not promote posting children's health issues publicly on the internet. You may have seen other Facebook groups where parents post photos of their children and ask for help. We do not agree with revealing this type of information on Facebook. What you post will be out there forever, and your child does not necessarily need to see that down the road.
I am here for you every step of the way. There are several ways you can ask questions during the workshop.
1. Weekly Q&A sessions. I will send out a survey at the beginning of each week where parents can post questions anonymously. I will then answer everyone's questions in a video session that will be recorded and accessible to everyone by the end of each week.
2. Post comments on the modules. At the end of each learning topic, you will be able to post a comment about the material. Here you can post a question to be answered by myself or other participants in the group.
3. Just send me an email. You will be getting lots of emails from me supporting you throughout the program. These are not bots. It is actually me and I see every response you send. Just reply to any of my emails if you have a question. If it is something I can answer quickly by email, I will. If it requires a longer answer, I will present it in the weekly Q&A video.
