Find out how to solve just about ANY issue in your family in a positive way with lasting results.

In less than 20 minutes, you'll discover a simple, kid-tested, research supported process that could change your life.

Since so many parents can relate to kids doing online school at home, the video lesson demonstrates the problem solving process using a single-parent coaching client's example, who went from miserable to marvelous working at home with her two children.

“I was going CRAZY working at home while my kids did school online. Learning how to problem solve with them has been amazing. I came to enjoy my kids at home while I was working! Now we use the steps to work out whatever comes up. My kids even start the process sometimes. I love that we've learned how to do this!”

—Crystal, mother of two

BONUS: You'll also get the Problem-Solving video lesson from the Brain Stages Parent Empowerment Journey, our flagship digital course with weekly online group coaching—"From Messy to Manageable". Enjoy!

Hi, I’m Patricia Wilkinson, coauthor of Brain Stages: How to Raise Smart, Confident Kids and Have Fun Doing It. I’m also the mother of two, and I taught grades kindergarten through sixth for 23 years. By the time my husband and I had our own family, I'd worked with kids for 14 years and figured raising children would be a breeze. Ha! How naïve can you get?


Few parenting journeys are easy, but in addition to the “regular” issues that come up while raising kids, our children had challenges. We had to get creative to support them in growing into successful adults.


Through tons of study, experts’ advice, and trial and error, I found key communication strategies and care practices that boost kids’ brain development and influence the people they become. These tools can even help kids who have experienced trauma.


My Bachelor of Arts degree in recreation from California State University, Long Beach and graduate work at Cal States, Los Angeles and Chico to earn a teaching credential and Language Development Specialist certification were a great start. The real wins came through raising and educating kids in the spirit of fun—troubleshooting, searching for resources, and trying new things.


Jacqueline Frischknecht, PhD contributed her extensive study of how brains develop, function, and learn to Brain Stages. Sadly, she passed away before we finished writing the book, so I continue to pore over brain research as it's published (I’ve become a total science nerd). I've learned why the tools I used at home and in the classroom were so effective. Jackie would be so pleased.


Now I share these tried-and-true tools, backed by research, with parents, caregivers, and educators to help kids grow into the smart, confident, successful humans they deserve to become—even in our complicated, competitive world.
