You need a simple, practical parenting plan that WORKS.
You want your children to do what they’re supposed to do (even if they don’t feel like it).
You want your kids to be able to get through a day — heck, even a few hours — without melting down.
You’re tired of your kids’ behaviors and emotions ruling your home.
YOU WANT THINGS TO CHANGE,
and you’d like someone to tell you EXACTLY how to make that happen.
(And it wouldn’t hurt if you had a plan that helped you and your spouse get on the same page!)
If this is true for you, then you’re in the right place.
Welcome to Rachel Bailey’s Parenting Academy.
Does any of this sound familiar?
Your children don't listen until you yell or take away everything they care about. (And even that's not working so well anymore.)
Things need to get done, but instead of cooperation, you’re dealing with defiance, disrespect, negotiations, and power struggles.
You deal with meltdowns and tantrums way too often.
They even melt down because the cup they wanted is in the dishwasher or you made the “wrong” dinner (even after they told you that’s what they wanted!).
You cannot go anywhere without your children bickering and competing with each other.
You're starting to dread spending long periods of time with your kids.
And then comes the guilt. You know you’re supposed to enjoy your kids. You WANT to enjoy your kids.
But often that just seems impossible.
You need things to be different... But you're not sure how to make that happen.
You’ve read books and blogs. You’ve tried every strategy and tool you’ve read about or can think of… and then some.
But nothing has worked in the long run. And then life gets in the way and everyone falls back into old habits.
And you’re back where you started, feeling helpless, hopeless, and depleted.
What if it didn’t have to be that way?
What if your kids listened the first time you asked them to do something…
… so they finally get ready in the morning and go to bed when they’re supposed to…
…and you can finally
end the power struggles and negotiations, make it to places on time,and maybe even get some time to yourself in the evenings?
What if your kids learned to handle disappointment and frustration…
…so they could be flexible when they didn’t get their way, even when it’s time to leave a friend’s house or you ask them to get off of the electronics…
…and you can finally stop
walking on eggshells and worrying that they’ll never be able to handle life?
What if your kids felt good enough about themselves…
…that they didn’t need to compete with siblings
…and they could handle new situations with confidence
…and you can finally stop
stressing about how your kids were going to behave and what others were thinking about them?
What if you could actually enjoy your kids …
…because they were no longer complaining or trying to control the situation
…and you can finally START
creating the happy memories that so may other families seem to be experiencing?
What if you could work with a parenting expert to build step-by-step plan
— tailored to your family and your lifestyle —
that taught you what to say and do to make that happen?
This is all possible.
This is why I created Rachel Bailey’s Parenting Academy.
I am Rachel Bailey, a Parenting Specialist who was worked with hundreds of families in the last decade to improve the behavior of (and the relationships between) parents and children.
I want to teach YOU exactly how to raise responsible, resilient, confident children… in a way that will work with your busy lifestyle.
As an Academy member, you will receive access to:
- A clear action plan that you and I will build together. This PERSONALIZED PARENTING PLAN will address the specific issues that you’re struggling with — telling you what to say and do, including phrases to use.
- An individual accountability plan to ensure that you do NOT fall back into old parenting habits (the ones that make you feel awful when you lie in bed at night), even when life starts to get in the way of being the parent you want to be.
- Live trainings and Q&A sessions that will help you gain more confidence so you do not have to feel helpless or out-of-control when it comes to responding to your child’s behavior.
- Community support so that you’re surrounded by people who get you… and you recognize that your child is NOT the only one doing what they’re doing.
I am Rachel Bailey.
There are some things I’d like you to know about me:
1. I’m not a good cook. My house isn’t particularly clean. I have zero fashion sense.
What I AM good at — and, if I’m being honest, what I’ve been good at my entire life — is understanding why kids (and adults) do what they do. People’s behavior just always made sense to me, even when it baffled others.
And I’ve honed this skill over the years as I’ve earned a Master’s Degree in clinical psychology worked as an ADHD Coach, in-home intensive in-home mentor, and psychotherapist.
These days I use my “super power” to work with parents to figure out exactly why children do the frustrating, illogical things they do… and I use this information to show parents how to improve kids’ behavior, confidence, resilience, and motivation.
I feel so grateful that this skill has helped me completely change (for the better!) the dynamics in hundreds of families.
2. I am a busy, filled-to-my-capacity mom myself.
I know that if I’m going to make changes in my life, I need someone to tell me EXACTLY what to do in a way that is both systematic and practical.
I also need someone to check in to make sure I’m staying on track… because I honestly sometimes feel so overwhelmed that I don’t address even the things that matter to me.
So I’ve built the Parenting Academy to be exactly what I need as a busy parent when I want things to change, but I don’t have much extra time or energy.
And I am confident that the Academy will be what you need if you want:
Real world, practical parenting advice from an expert who understands that
life is overwhelming and that you might be feeling hopeless and depleted and resentful and guilty
… and that you can’t handle feeling any worse.
What You Get As a Member of
Rachel Bailey’s Parenting Academy
YOUR PERSONALIZED PARENTING PLAN
I will walk you through a system that I have used over the past decade to help hundreds of families create more peace, flexibility, and connection in their homes.
You have a lot going on in your life! I get it. I’ll keep you on track by reaching out regularly AND helping you conquer the obstacles that prevent you from being the parent you want to be.
AND PHRASES TO USE
Your plan will include scripts and phrases (that demonstrate what to say and do) so that you know how to handle even the most parenting frustrating situations.
TEXT MESSAGE REMINDERS
Receive text messages with inspirational / motivational quotes to remind you to stay on track, even on your most difficult parenting days.
No slipping back into old habits that you regret!
PRIVATE FACEBOOK GROUP
Join a community of other parents who understand exactly what you’re going through.
Ask questions at any time and receive answers from me, guest experts, and other parents.
Participate in live events (that take place in the evenings using video conferencing software) that teach you how to handle a challenging behavior or how to use a new parenting tool.
Guest experts (sleep specialists, feeding specialists) will also offer trainings as well.
LIVE Q&A SESSIONS
Ask me your parenting questions live and I’ll answer them on the spot.
Q&As are done by Facebook posts so you can read/learn from other parents’ questions as well.
The 4-Day Focus: Academy members focus on one SIMPLE action meant to make parenting less stressful. Results are shared. Struggles are understood and successes are celebrated together.
Yuck Dumps: Dumping our parenting Yuck helps us feel less alone… and helps us move beyond the that big emotions that often hold us back as parents.
I will be honest that Rachel Bailey’s Parenting Academy
is not for everyone.
Getting RESULTS requires you to put in time and effort.
It’s not a passive program. You’ll have to fill out worksheets, try strategies and report back to me. I’ll be working HARD with you (communicating on a regular basis, helping you figure this parenting thing out!), but you do need to be actively involved.
SEEING CHANGE requires you to make changes.
In the Academy, you will learn tools for improving your child’s behavior, mood, and motivation. But you must be willing to make take action and make changes. Reading about / listening to solutions is not the same as implementing solutions.
However, the Academy is a good fit for YOU
if you answer “yes” to the following questions:
Do you have at least 1 hour per week to dedicate to learning and trying parenting strategies?
Are you willing to make changes yourself to improve your relationship with your child?
Are you tired of worrying about and being frustrated by your children?
Do you wish someone would just tell you what to do to create positive change (and help you stay on track) so you FINALLY see results?
HOW IT WORKS
STEP 1: We’ll build your Personalized Parenting Plan together LIVE
You will begin the process with a live 90-minute session with me. (Sessions take place in person or via video conference.)
During that session, we’ll identify your parenting goals and all of the steps needed to meet those goals.
You will walk away from the session with a PERSONALIZED PARENTING PLAN that includes resources +
a list of action steps to take so that you finally see changes in your home.
The price for this session is $225. See everything that's included...
1. A pre-session video that gives you the foundation you will need to raise responsible, resilient, confident children. (Watching this session BEFORE we meet allows us to jump right into problem-solving and solution-finding when we’re together.)
2. Our 90-minute live session where we will identify your goals and build your Personalized Parenting Plan together
3. Your Personalized Parenting Plan, a live document (that we can both edit) that lives online…so you can access it from anywhere at any time.
4. One month of access to the “Group Support” membership level for ongoing support
STEP 2: You Receive Ongoing Support
Although it is not a requirement, most members do continue to receive ongoing support via membership to the “Group Support” or “Individual Support” programs. Below are details about each level of support.
(We can decide together which program would better fit your needs.)

Answers to Questions About
Rachel Bailey’s Parenting Academy
How does the Academy work?
As a member of the Academy, you receive direct support from me, a parenting expert.
First we’ll create a plan that
a.) helps you clarify your parenting goals
b.) tells you exactly what to do to meet those goals so that you can feel confident in your ability to raise responsible, resilient kids.
But we all know that no change would happen if things ended there! Once you complete the plan, you can get extra individual support to make sure your plan works for YOU. You will also have access to live trainings and events, parenting scripts, and motivational texts.
You only participate in the parts of the program that are valuable for you.. any of them individually will provide reinforcement for the plan that we create together.
Do I have to participate in community events to benefit from the Academy?
Participation in community events is encouraged, as the Facebook group and events are created to build your confidence in implementing your plan.
Although it is not required, most members do participate in at least one event per month. Those who join have told me that they receive the most value for their membership.
However, even if you do not want to participate in the events, you will still receive parenting scripts and other tips via email and in the Facebook group.
What age should my children be to get the most benefit from the Academy?
Because your parenting plan will be personalized, your children can range from 2-20 years old.
Most members of the community have children who range in age from 3-14.
How much time will I need for the Academy?
Our session together will last 90 minutes.
After that session, you should plan at least 1 hour a week for Academy lessons and activities.
During our session, we will work together to find that time in your busy schedule (and overcome any obstacles that you foresee).
How long do most people spend in the Academy?
Although your journey will depend on your needs and the situations you face, most parents spend 3-4 months in the Individual Support program where they receive personalized lessons and can practice skills until they become more automatic and natural. Once they feel calmer and more in control, they join the Group Support program to receive ongoing support (since new things come up and children change!) for $35/month — much less than a cup of coffee per day.
However, you do not have to receive any ongoing support after our initial meeting… and you may cancel your subscription at any time.
How is this different than what I’ve already tried before?
Although you may have tried implementing parenting strategies before, you probably have not had a parenting expert in your back pocket — someone who will help you apply theoretical strategies to your unique circumstances.
My job is to work with you to find strategies that WORK for YOU in a way that fits your lifestyle… and to ensure that you don’t fall back into old patterns when life becomes distracting and overwhelming.
What if I just want to have traditional meetings with you?
You do not have to create a personalized plan with me. As an Academy member, you receive a discount on traditional meetings with me, which are normally $150 for 60 minutes.
Members of the “Group Support” program pay only $115 for a 60-minute meeting, no matter how many times we meet in one month.
Members of the “Individual Support” program pay only $75 for a 60-minute meeting, no matter how many times we meet in one month.
You may join the Academy simply for this money-saving purpose.
How do I cancel if I need to?
Simply let me know that you’re ready to leave the Academy or cancel yourself from your own membership page.
