3 tools to get your child to listen when they’re upset, frustrated or angry
Ever wondered how your family life turned out like this?
If you’re like a lot of parents we work with, you’re stressed and exhausted… And you never wanted to be one of those parents who yells at their kids.
Does this sound familiar?
You just wish there was a way to change things for good… to deeply connect with your kids and enjoy your time with them… to create the calm, happy home you dream of.
It’s not your fault, because there’s something they’re not telling you…
Hi, I’m Jessica McIlveen, a child behaviour and family dynamic specialist with over 10 years of experience working in the fields of social work, psychology, biology, complex behaviours, child development, trauma, yoga therapy and neuroscience.
As you probably know, most of the traditional approaches to parenting use a combination of rewards, punishments and calm logic when our kids are upset.
But here’s the thing: these strategies try to work with parts of the brain children don’t have access to. Because when you try to use your logical adult brain to calm a child whose limbic system is activated, everything just gets worse.
So what can you do? Instead of the surface behaviour you’re seeing, you need to parent the nervous system. Because your child’s nervous system is the real reason for what’s happening.
Just stop and read that again, because it’s important. And it’s an absolute game changer.
With this brand new approach, parents like you are:
I’ve created a range of online parenting courses so you can learn to parent the nervous system for a calmer, happier home.
Each of these courses gives you the tools to confidently support your child through the ‘big 4’: anger, anxiety, defiance and meltdowns.
There’s nothing more magical to me than hearing from a parent I’ve worked with that they’ve had the most beautiful connection moments with their child. I can’t wait to work with you and show you what’s possible for you and your family.
To your happy home

What other parents say about working with me
Jessica’s sessions have helped me have more clarity to prioritise myself and to do the things I love to do. As a parent I am more relaxed, calm, happier and energised. My relationship with my husband has improved immensely. He is now showing more care and initiative to help me emotionally when I need it and he does more around the house without me having to ask him.
I started from a place of super overwhelm, exhausted, out of control emotionally, lost, at times lonely and lacking connection. I have been trying different ways to improve with no results and reverting to my old default ways.
I have had a lot of breakthroughs with the way Jessica presents action into simple baby steps. I have reduced my emotionally triggered outbursts and my yelling at the kids. Jessica did this by bringing to my attention and awareness as to why I was getting triggered and creating that clarity was huge for me.
Jessica is a strong, confident, gentle, and caring person and with this combination of traits was exactly what I needed. She helped me feel more grounded and more myself. I loved how she has a way of clearly seeing what is going on and knows what you need to help you move forward in a positive, encouraging and supportive way and most of all keeping you accountable. ”
When I started Jess’s course there was a lot of anxiety and tension in our house. I felt like I was failing as a parent.
Our family dynamic has improved immensely since doing Jess’s course. I have a deeper understanding of my children and hubby (as well as myself) which has improved our health and overall happiness. You should definitely do this program. Not only will it make your home more harmonious but also more healthy and happy.
I can’t think of any ways to improve on this course. I thought it was excellent how there were all the different speakers with valuable knowledge to share.”
I was worried about my son's behaviour and my reactions, and wanted to try a holistic approach to parenting to try and avoid medical intervention.Since doing Jess’s course I have more patience and understanding for my son's emotional meltdowns and I am able to identify what he is needing from me and what my own lifestyle priorities are for healthy balance, so now we are bouncing back quicker from upsets. My own cloudiness and lack of energy has shifted.
I recommend this program if you want to understand family members with new eyes, get peace of mind knowing there is a reason, and learn alot about yourself as a parent and your needs to have a happier healthier mindset to help create a happy home.”
