Transform big emotions into stronger connections
It Starts With You: Reparenting Your Adult Self
Tiny Humans, Big Emotions
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 kiddo’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 kiddo 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 kiddo process them in ways that help you both feel more connected.
With our Emotion Coaching Course Package, you get access to our two core Seed & Sew courses so you can apply this important work in your own life and in your child’s.
It Starts With You: Reparenting Your Adult Self is 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 is 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 kiddo. 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.
Every human needs one person they can be vulnerable with and turn to with their hard stuff. By completing these courses,
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, kiddos and parents learn how to effectively integrate big feelings into a stronger sense of attachment and connection.
Such a fan - I have been using some of the techniques and it's amazing to see my son react and process his thoughts, feelings and emotions. I can see the wheels spinning on his head - you are doing an amazing thing!
You are such an amazing speaker! So easy to understand through all of your experiences and stories and man I wish I lived in VT so I could get more in person with you! Becoming a mom just slayed me, despite being a very compassionate, empathetic caregiver personality with lots of experience with kids, it just brought me to my most basic, shitty version of myself and I feel like I’ve spent the last three years trying to figure out myself out and build myself back into the person that I want to be. I’ve become obsessed with Brene Brown and read and watch anything I can get my hands on about her and you are so similar in your perspectives, it was amazing!! And then you had so much that was just concrete here’s how you do this and man that was what I needed!
Learn to process emotions in healthy ways, and help your kiddo do the same.
By completing both courses in our Emotion Coaching Course Package, you’ll build a toolbox to feel confident responding to and processing big emotions. Wherever you are on your parenting journey, these courses will help you bring awareness and intention to it. If it’s setting boundaries, if it’s sensory regulation, if it’s learning how to hold space for emotions, these courses will provide concrete tools to meet your and your tiny human’s emotions with the intention and calm you both deserve.
Each course consists of over an hour's worth of video content, downloadable workbooks, and bonus support tools. The courses are on-demand, so you can go at your own pace.

I just wanted to message you and let you know that last night as I enjoyed my littles at dinner the thought of how much I love and enjoy them was coupled with the thought of how grateful I am for the village you created! I couldn’t love them more, but you have allowed me to ENJOY them more because they are regulated and we recover after meltdowns. It doesn't mean we don’t have tough times, days, meltdowns, but the fact that I can show up for them and give them these tools has given us and them more time to enjoy one another!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!
Working with Alyssa undoubtedly changed my parenting journey. Being an early childhood educator, I’ve been well versed in the traditional ways of “disciplining” children. As a first time mama, I began realizing that something was missing; enter Seed & Sew. Following Alyssa on social media made me think, “this girl knows all the secrets!” I began working with her as a coaching client hoping to get simple tips and tricks for parenting my toddler. I came out of the coaching with perspective on my own triggers, my own upbringing, and the feelings I’d been unknowingly suppressing. Since our coaching, my toddler has made huge strides in recognizing emotions, navigating hard things, and finding peace and balance for herself. My journey is only just beginning, but I’m walking with steady feet because of Alyssa.
Hey there! I'm Alyssa
I have a master’s degree in early childhood education, am an emotional development researcher & expert, 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.
When you build your toolbox, you can be a safe space for your child.
Every human needs one person they can be vulnerable with and turn to with their hard stuff. Maybe you never had that growing up. Friend, it is never too late to build new habits and patterns for yourself and your family. Now is your chance to rewrite those narratives and start fresh. By building your toolbox, you can be that safe space for your child. You’ll discover a stronger connection as you dive into this important work.
Our goal is toemotional health.
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 courses for?
Can I purchase just one of the courses instead of the bundle?
Do I have to be a parent to get something from these courses?
Can I do these courses 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 kiddo’s tantrums to disappear?
How long will I have access to these courses?
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 kiddos 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 kiddo go through this life with fewer struggles and a stronger connection.
Our Emotion Coaching Course Package will help you do it. Let’s start this healing journey!
