Is the stress level in your home higher than you’d like?
Here’s how I help parents like you:
Catholic Montessori child raising
In small online workshops, Understand your child’s behaviors and learn exactly how to respond
Your child’s behavior is telling you things. Do you understand the message?
Learn about the Four Temperaments from a Catholic perspective and gain a better understanding of yourself and your family by identifying each person’s Temperament mix.
Understand Maria Montessori’s Four Planes of Development, and pinpoint your child’s Developmental Plane or Transition Stage.
Use the Montessori techniques, with a Catholic worldview, to improve your child’s behavior, creating a more peaceful, joyful home.
The clerks at TJ’s commented on how well behaved my children were!
I went grocery shopping at TJ’s by myself the other day, and the clerks asked where my children were. They commented on how well behaved they were. Apparently, they see lots of misbehavior!

Learn specific techniques, tailored for your family
While the Four Planes + Four Temperaments framework benefit every child, sometimes you just need someone to help you through your specific situation. Feedback and personal guidance can make a big difference.
We get to know each other as I learn about you, your family, and your biggest stresses and struggles in child raising.
You learn about the Four Temperaments from a Catholic perspective and gain a better understanding of yourself and your family by identifying each person’s Temperament mix.
You learn Maria Montessori’s Four Planes of Development (of course with her Catholic worldview!), and pinpoint the current Developmental Plane or Transition Stage of your child.
You choose which child-raising struggle you’d like to tackle first, and I help you develop Catholic Montessori skills to improve your situation and reduce your stress.
Together, we make progress in creating your own Catholic Montessori Home. You become a more confident and effective mom, and your children become more joyful and peaceful!
At bedtime, time – rather than Mom and Dad – has become the enemy.
With your tweaks, the checklist was a smashing success! Thank you for suggesting that we give our daughter sole responsibility for her bedtime routine.

useful books & products
Are you wondering what I like?
You’re not alone. I’ve been asked many times over the years what I recommend for this or that. So I’ve put together this collection of things I’ve used and found helpful.
Throughout my 20+ years of being a Catholic Montessori mom, I’ve read hundreds of books and tried many different products.
I’ve chosen some lemons for sure, but I’ve uncovered a lot of gems too.
By checking out my recommendations, I save you time and cut through some confusion.

Because of your encouragement,
[our son] was tested for reflexes, and at least four of the six were retained.
We will be working on this in OT. Thanks to you many times over for helping us uncover this!
