Are you struggling with your spirited or strong-willed child? I'm here to help!
Parenting a child who is more sensitive, more persistent and more demanding than other kids is HARD.
You've likely read and tried just about every parenting technique and strategy out there, with little or no success...and as a result, you may feel hopeless that anything will ever change.
Many of the parents I talk to say they go to bed at night feeling utterly defeated - because they know that what they're doing isn't working, but they have no idea what needs to change.
Some of the challenges they face on a daily basis include:
"Having Holly as a resource has been so helpful. She has many simple, easy to implement ideas that WORK! She is easy to work with, and she is incredibly kind and sensitive to the needs of parents with a spirited little one. She also has interesting research and personal experience to back up all of the info she shares. She is positive yet practical, an important combination for working with little ones!"

But while it's undeniably difficult raising a spirited child, there IS hope! It's true...these kids require different parenting strategies than other kids. But when we parent them with warmth, sensitivity and respect, these kids can truly become most amazing human beings!
I'm Holly Klaassen, MS, BA, and Parent Coach. I'm also the Founder of The Fussy Baby Site, and mom to two big kids, 12 and 15 - one of whom has come out the other side of "spirited".
My passion is helping parents of fussy or high need babies and spirited toddlers and preschoolers thrive with their incredible child.
I have a Master of Science in Family & Human Development, and my parenting advice has been featured in major media publications like Parents, Healthy Way, Motherly, Huffington Post, Today's Parent, Romper and others. My Facebook groups for parents of spirited kids of all ages help support over 40,000 parents.
Do you ever feel like you really want to talk to someone who truly understands what you're going through with your child?
Someone who can provide support and guidance, offer proven strategies that have worked for other parents, all while walking beside you as you set and meet your parenting goals?
This is a parent coach!
A parent coach is is not a therapist or counsellor. Rather he or she is someone who accompanies you on your parenting journey.
Parent coaching is focused on the future - on helping you set and meet specific, realistic goals.
Some specific ways I LOVE helping my coaching clients include:
"Holly has great experience dealing with [fussy kids] and has given me the reassurance that I am not alone. Holly helped us to understand my fussy toddler and be able to begin controlling her tantrums. She gave wonderful advice, was very understanding, and more than willing to help us. I would recommend Holly to be of support to you and your little one!"
