CALM MIND — CONNECTED PARENTING — RULES THAT WORK
If you’re like most moms, you’ve had moments like this:
Your kid...hits their sibling,
refuses to stay in bed,
won’t do their homework,
constantly asks for ipad time or minecraft,
won’t get off their devices,
has a huge meltdown,
doesn’t do their chores,
and, and, and….
Moments when you feel totally overwhelmed and have no idea what to do.
You’ve tried all the things...
...you’ve read all the parenting books, done time-out, taken away screen time and playdates, set up the sticker charts, yelled, ignored the behavior, explained and explained—basically do anything you can to get your kid to stop their behavior.
The “strategy” you read about seems to work once or twice, but things always seem to go back to the bad behavior.
Here’s how this goes in real life...
Your kids are arguing over a spoon at breakfast because your older child took the spoon that your younger child got on their own. Of course, the littler one is very upset.…
You're tired. Your partner has been away busy with work all week and you're sick.
You try the traditional tools you've read about.
You try to explain the situation to them over their screaming (no one is listening).
You try to separate them (but they are hungry and not listening).
You try to intervene which just seems to make it worse.
So you end up yelling and sending everyone to their rooms (including yourself).
Then you feel bad for yelling and beat yourself and think “I suck as a mom”.
Listen, there’s nothing wrong with you. You are a great mom.
The parenting strategies you’ve tried don't “work” because you aren’t addressing the real reasons your kid is misbehaving and why it’s making you feel so stressed out.
When your kids don't know what to do with their feelings, they behave in ways that cause problems for themselves and others.
When YOU don’t know what to do with YOUR feelings, you behave in ways that cause problems for yourself and for your kids.
This is the REAL reason you are stuck in a parenting spiral of repeating yourself, yelling, threatening. Followed by feeling guilty, trying harder, not being able to change, and second-guessing yourself.
To improve behavior you don’t just need another tool or strategy. You need solutions for the REASONS you feel like a bad mom and ANSWERS to why your kid’s behavior never gets better.
In Calm Mama Club you get simple solutions that actually work to improve your kid’s behavior and make being a mom easier.
In Calm Mama Club, you unlock the reasons your family is stuck and get solutions that work for life.
You get really good at managing your emotions. You know how to get yourself to calm no matter what your kid does — from toddler meltdowns to teenage shenanigans — so you don’t get stuck in the parenting spiral of yelling, repeating, being mean, shutting down, and using threats and punishments.
You become an emotional coach for your kid. Showing them how to manage feelings — at every age, for every stage, and for every behavior — so your child builds awareness about what they are feeling, and learns strategies to cope and communicate those feelings in healthy ways.
Calm Mama Club is an annual membership program, specifically designed for moms who want to know exactly how to handle misbehavior without losing their shit, so they can enjoy their kids and stop feeling like a "bad mom".
I took the guesswork out of parenting and simplified it in the Calm Mama Process so you don’t have to get a Master’s Degree in psychology, or be a child development expert, to become the mom you want to be and raise kids who are emotionally healthy and responsible.I'M IN! JOIN THE CLUB >
In Calm Mama Club, you learn the Calm Mama Process.
This isn’t a program that works just for toddlers, or while your kids are in elementary school, or for teens.
The Calm Mama Process is a parenting model that you only learn once and then apply it over and over for years and years.
The Calm Mama Process is a simple 4-step parenting system.
The 4 steps of the Calm Mama Process are CALM. CONNECT. LIMIT SET. CORRECT.
Calm: addresses why you get upset in the first place, and gives you simple tools to quickly move from overwhelm to calm.
Connect: gives you deep insight into why your kid is acting the way they are acting, and simple strategies to coach them through their feelings and actions so they change their behavior from the inside out.
Limit Set: teaches you how to get your kids to listen to you, without you having to repeat yourself 5x, and giving them a bunch of reminders.
Correct: helps you be ok when your kid makes a mistake because you know what to do and you know mistakes are good.
Whenever any circumstance or behavior happens, you’ll use the Calm Mama Process to resolve the situation in a peaceful, mutually respectful way.
The Calm Mama Process is the only thing you need to become the mom you want to be. Learn it once and apply it over and over for years and years.
And if you aren’t sure how to apply the steps, I’m there to guide you for an entire year.
In Calm Mama Club, I walk you through every single step of the Calm Mama Process so you know exactly what to do when parenting gets tricky.
The more you apply the Calm Mama Process the better you feel as a mom. Your kids feel more seen and loved. Their behavior improves. Your family brings you a lot more joy. You enjoy being a mom.

"Darlynn is an actual genius!! I'm blown away and SO happy I found her! Can we agree this should be required parent ed for everyone?"
"My daughter told me she’s proud of me for taking this class. I asked her why and she said, 'Because it shows you care about being better at being a mom. You yell less and when we are having big feelings or bad behavior you take us aside to work through our emotions.'."
“I LOVE being coached by you—it has truly made a huge impact in my life. I truly feel that the last few weeks—there has been a “shift”in my life, in the kids, how I parent… it’s been so so so GOOD—and something that I can see we have all benefited from.

Meet Your Coach: Darlynn Childress
“Peace in my home is missing.” This is what I wrote in my journal when my son was 4 years old.
I was struggling as a mom so much back then. I was shocked by my rage, my resentment, my fear, and the sheer overwhelm of it all.
At my lowest point, I finally admitted I needed help. My decision to figure out a different way of being a mom led me on a twisty-turvy road of healing and learning and growing.
I get it. I've done it. And I'm here to guide you on your own twisty-turvy road of healing and learning and growing.
I do this work because I know the feeling of falling into bed at night, flooded with sadness, anger, disappointment, guilt and regret. I've been the mom who scares herself with the depth of her own anger and gets stuck in shame.
I started this program because I want to help every mom I can get out of her pain, sadness and overwhelm so she can enjoy her kids and get the peace that's missing.
I've been there, Mama. And I know exactly how to get you the peace and calm and hope and joy that you're craving.
Join Calm Mama Club today to start your twisty-turvy road to healing. I’m ready for you.
