"Alison's calming guidance and techniques were just what I needed in this overwhelming time in my life."

"Alison is extremely knowledgeable in her field and delivered research and experience with raw honesty and true compassion. Her guidance and teaching within a few short hours made a remarkable impact on myself and my families lives. The Beyond Time-outs workshop left me asking myself questions that can only lead to personal growth and well rounded and loving parenting. I went to the workshop in hopes of gaining a few more skills and ideas on parenting, without taking out the stresses of life on my children and walked away with what I believe to be a whole new perspective on living a happy life. Alison's calming guidance and techniques were just what I needed in this overwhelming time in my life. I look forward to joining her community and putting to practice all the techniques I needed reminding of and the new strategies that she has introduced.

This is the best parenting advice Peter and I have ever received. So simple and yet so effective!"

"Her passion for helping families is contagious and will inspire you..."

"Before Alison’s workshop Beyond Time Outs, I was feeling frustrated and completely out of ideas on how to get through to my son. The old school go to's... grounding and taking things away haven't been worked. It felt like nothing I did made a difference. After taking her course I am feeling more confident with my ability to make some changes in our home. Alison has a unique approach to parenting and so much knowledge on better ways to communicate with kids and in my case a teenager. Her passion for helping families is contagious and will inspire you to set goals and make changes with your family. You will leave this course equipped with new ideas and ready to take on your toughest parenting challenges! I would recommend this course to all parents; it will change your perspective on how you interact with your kids."

"What would usually cause us a ridiculous amount of stress has been not bad at all..."

"The visual you gave us Monday for "flipping your lid" has been a huuuuuuge help to me. This week [my daughter] and I have had to be up almost an hour earlier than usual...and what would usually cause us a ridiculous amount of stress has been not bad at all thanks in part to that tool!"

"There is peace and joy in our home once more."

"Alison Smith is truly an expert at what she does. Our family was struggling immensely with our middle son and nothing we were trying was working. In fact, the situation was only deteriorating - a tough place for a life coach to be in. I'm convinced that we wouldn't have found common ground without Alison's compassionate reassurance and encouragement. Through her caring questioning, she was patient to learn exactly what our family was challenged with and offered multiple solutions and strategies. There's no question that Alison is passionate about helping families thrive. Her resources and guidance have proven invaluable and I'm eternally grateful. There is peace and joy in our home once more. Thank you Alison Smith."
