Our two flagship workshops in one bundle!
Tiny Humans, Big Emotions
It Starts With You: Reparenting Your Adult Self
Big emotions rule the day.
Your tiny human is in the middle of a meltdown.
You told them it was time to turn off the screen, and now they’re kicking, screaming, and crying. You feel frustrated and out of options. You’re noticing how hard it is for them to find calm. A meltdown leaves you both exhausted.
You’re trying to set boundaries with them, but it isn’t easy. You don’t feel like you have the tools to calm your child’s big emotions, much less your own. How does anyone do it?
What if you could come to this parenting adventure equipped with tools to help you and your child find some calm and stay regulated?
Imagine being able to respond to your tiny human’s emotions with intention. You feel confident helping them navigate big feelings. You know how to hold that space for them, and for yourself. The emotions are still there, but you know how to help your tiny human process them in ways that help you both feel more connected.
Introducing the Parenting with Intention Bundle
It Starts With You: Reparenting Your Adult Self Workshop
The starting place for rewriting your narratives and fostering a healthier relationship with yourself and everyone in your life. To support your tiny human’s emotional development, you first have to nurture your own. This course will help you become aware of your patterns and habits, such as anxious reactions or stress responses, so you can develop the tools to respond with intention rather than reacting, and ultimately, enjoy life more.
Tiny Humans, Big Emotions Workshop
The starting place for fostering healthy emotional development in our tiny humans. Through this course, you’ll gain a better sense of why emotions matter, and how to embrace rather than bury them to create the kind of connection you crave with your child. The tools you’ll learn in Tiny Humans, Big Emotions will help you build a sense of groundedness during the hard times and a deeper, more authentic connection with your child so that you’re both able to handle the hard stuff in a way that promotes long-lasting mental health.
to nourish you on your parenting journey.
Calling on the techniques I’ve used with thousands of parents who struggled with the same things you do, I’ve taken that powerful one-on-one work and boiled it down into easy-to-digest modules you can start applying in your own family today. The approach you’ll get with these courses is rooted in behavioral science and cutting edge research on emotional development. Through the Collaborative Emotion Processing (CEP) method that I co-created and researched, kids and parents learn how to effectively integrate big feelings into a stronger sense of attachment and connection.

Hey there! I'm Alyssa
I have a master’s degree in early childhood education, am an emotional development researcher & expert, mama, small town Vermonter, podcaster, and someone who saved my own life through the very emotional intelligence skills you’ll learn in these courses. For years I stuffed my feelings until I learned to process my emotions again in a healthy way, and I’ve seen the transformative power of this work in the lives of families just like yours. I pinch myself on the daily because I truly believe I have the best job here: sharing with committed parents and caregivers like you the tools that helped me live fully again.
Our goal is to nurture
Our goal is not to raise obedient children, it's to raise children who have the tools to navigate the hard stuff that will come their way in life. While you may start to see behavioral changes quickly, these courses aren’t a quick fix, and they won’t make your or your child stop feeling. Certain activities such as bedtime or picking up toys might get easier, but we're not here to teach you how to get your kid to do what you want them to do. We're here to help you build trust with your tiny human so that you can handle hard situations in a way that sets them up for healthy lifelong habits.
Who are these workshops for?
Can I purchase just one of the workshops instead of the bundle?
Do I have to be a parent to get something from these workshops?
Can I do these workshops with my partner or co-parent?
Can we really heal old wounds? I’ve been carrying this around for a long time.
But it could just be that anxiety is part of who I am, right?
But what if I don’t have any wounds or trauma to deal with?
What about when there isn’t a psychological reason for something?
Do you approach discipline?
What if I’ve only ever known the punishment-reward system?
When can I expect my child’s tantrums to disappear?
How long will I have access to these workshops?
At bedtime last night, I paused for a couple minutes to acknowledge how hard the last few days have been, let her know I saw how hard she was working, I was proud of her, and reminded her that I love her—even, and maybe especially, when she’s having a hard time and we’re all feeling frustrated. Remembering the smile on her face has been bringing me to tears all day today. I’m not sure I would have thought to spend that time communicating with her if not for Seed & Sew.
Alyssa!! I want to hug you so hard. My husband is having some major breakthroughs since yesterday. Today he looks at me and says “I’m just going to take a minute. I know it's not F____’s job to calm down for me and it's all a bit much. Can you take over?” He left, regulated, came back and helped our little girl with some very big emotions.
Friend, let’s that told us crying isn’t ok, that told us there isn’t space for big emotions. Let’s build our toolboxes and help our children do the same.
Even if you never had someone you could break down to growing up, even if you never felt like it was okay to express yourself, there’s still time to change those patterns and build the tools to help you and your little one go through this life with fewer struggles and a stronger connection.
Our Parenting with Intention Workshop Bundle will help you do it. Let’s start this healing journey!
