I know... Your boy is hitting or biting or scratching or grabbing or spitting or yelling or swearing or pushing or pulling or WHATever. And you’ve tried EVERYTHING. You started with asking him politely to stop. Then a little louder. And then you had to scream because it was the only way he would listen. And he did stop. You felt badly about having yelled, but it worked, so...well… What are you gonna do?
But then it happened again. And again. You turned to rewards thinking that it would encourage your boy to mellow out, use kind words, keep his hands to himself. I’m guessing he didn’t make it to the finish line… Or if he did, he took the prize and then went back to his regular old “inappropriate behavior” self.
What now? He can’t be hurting others! Certainly not physically. And not with words either. That’s it! As much as you didn’t want to have to punish him, there was just nothing left to try.
"TIME OUT! GO TO YOUR ROOM AND COME BACK WHEN YOU’RE READY TO BEHAVE LIKE A THREE-YEAR OLD (OR 10 YEAR OLD)!"
"IF YOU DO THAT ONE MORE TIME, YOU WILL LOSE YOUR SCREEN TIME FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK!"
"HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF HE KICKED YOU? YOU APOLOGIZE TO HIM RIGHT NOW OR THERE WILL BE NO MORE PLAY DATES! PERIOD!"
And after all that yelling, how’s his behavior?
And how are YOU feeling?
Now you’re beginning to wonder whether there might be something seriously wrong with your boy. If he’s like this now, what’s he going to be like when he gets to high school! It feels like he’s slipping away.
And your parenting confidence is, I’m guessing, somewhere down in the basement. With every step out into public comes anxiety. You’re sure everyone’s dreading your son’s arrival, and gossiping about what a crappy parent you must be to let your boy behave “that way.” And home isn’t much better. Sibling struggles. Little cooperation. Lack of respect. Criticism from family.
Listen. There is another way. A peaceful way that is effective and leaves you feeling proud of your parenting. It’s simpler than you can possibly imagine. And I want to teach you.
"Out with aggression!” is an online course designed to help you help your boy stop his aggressive behaviors and lift your parenting confidence. (I think I already said that somewhere, but I want to make sure you’re with me here because I mean business!)

And I want you to feel hopeful about your son’s ability to make good choices, solve conflicts peacefully, conquer his fears, and reach his full potential.I have lived in that place of worry and fear for my sons’ future, and it sucked! I made it my business to learn all I could about parenting, and to get the hell out of that hopeless place as quickly as possible.There’s nothing special about me. True, I've written a book, coached loads of parents, and shared my knowledge on many a podcast and online summit, and in newspapers and magazines online and off.But I don’t have any super powers. I just discovered some simple tools that allowed me to move my boys beyond their aggressive behaviors. And I felt so amazed by the process that I became a certified trainer of Hand in Hand Parenting and began helping other parents do the same.I now know that my boys are just fine, and if I can spread the message that boys are good, and that it is our responsibility to learn how to support them well, life for boys (and with boys) will be sooo much better. This knowledge has empowered me to teach parents what’s really going on with our boys, and how to meet them where they are, hold high standards for them, and hold them close as they make their way through their struggles.I look around me at the men I meet and I don’t see a lot of joy. Many seem to have fallen into jobs/careers/roles that others expected of them- either their families or cultures. Most do not make spending time with their families a priority – either because they’re carrying huge financial burdens, or they don’t know how to play, be still, be close, relax. Many are without networks of close friends, are lonely and unhappy, and use alcohol, drugs or porn to numb the pain, rather than express their feelings fully. I don’t want this future for my boys or yours.I read the newspaper and it’s full of men perpetuating all sorts of violence. I believe we can do better for our boys. That does not have to be their future.Knowledge is really power, and together we can harness that power and make real change in the lives of our boys, our families, and our world!The future holds much beauty and goodness! I hope you’ll join me on this journey towards more joy, play and laughter at home, and more peace in the world.
