overwhelmed, isolated parents of beloved, complex kids…

What if I told you that I could pinpoint the majority of your struggles at home to one pervasive lie about parenting?



Of course you would (you feel like you’ve tried everything else)...

Well, when I found out — it changed my life…


Friend, here’s the truth that shifted it all for me:





This parenting lie is strong though.

The lie is there when you feel rising resentment at your child’s outbursts, their tablet dependence, their refusal to eat anything…


It’s there when you worry your kid won’t ever manage in the real world…


It’s there when you can’t help but wish your kid would just for once be like the Jones’ kids…


And believe me, if you don’t get the tools you need to dismantle this lie — it will prevent you from regaining HOPE.


And HOPE is why you are here right?


Because even on their worst days, you remember that little baby in your arms doing the best they can every day…


And when you think you can’t handle another moment, 

you remember how you’d do anything for them to feel happy, safe, and fulfilled and


You want a peaceful home


You want trust restored 


You want to stop feeling so alone 

I'm Amanda.




I lived through Autistic Burnout with my 6-year-old and survived my own Parental PTSD. Coming out of it, I realized that this lie we’re told — that it’s all our fault if our kids can’t “behave” — is literally ruining us.


And pushing hard for compliance and perfection actually causes more intense behaviors in our neuro-atypical kids and can even contribute to trauma and burnout.


But, when you’re trying to just survive the day, it's hard to figure out the theory behind a parenting book so you can just make. it. stop!


And finding the right coach plus people who “get it” feels impossible. But, doing it alone is so scary because “What if I’m getting it wrong? What if I end up ruining my kid?!”


I’ve said these exact same things! In fact, my 6 Step Low Demand Method was born from my time in these exact trenches.


  • Strengthen your relationships
  • Improve communication
  • Restore calm
  • Find your people AND
  • Heal burnout

And, most transformational of all,
my 6 Step Low Demand Method dismantles that lie bit by bit,
so you can drop demands and meet your kids — and yourself — with loving, radical acceptance.




An interactive 8-week digital course & virtual live coaching program that turns low-demand parenting theory into lifelong practice.

Inside The Low Demand Masterclass you’ll learn how to:

Develop a custom Low Demand roadmap

that you and your family can actually follow every day! 

Trust yourself and your kid

Demystify what it means to live with radical acceptance — this isn’t “anything goes” this is “bravely letting life unfold.”

Extinguish feelings of failure, isolation, and loneliness

You’ll finally feel a sense of ease as you navigate fiery behavior alongside a guided community of parents experiencing the same challenges as you.

Boost your confidence about living fearlessly with Low Demand

Have an answer to those eye rolls from uninformed or disapproving family members.

Celebrate your wins!

Acknowledge all the amazing skill-building moments that are happening every day! From micro to macro, you’ll create the foundation for Low Demand living and thriving.


“My daughter was in an almost constant meltdown, with small glimpses of regulation. She was violent and abusive to her brother and to us – it was an incredibly rough time. Fast forward to now, just a handful of months later of truly implementing Amanda’s Low Demand Parenting and violence is WAY down, sleep has become accessible and we have been able to start homeschooling. It has been a complete 180 turnaround.
Working with Amanda has been a transformative, life-giving experience.”

 — Rachel, mother of two

Hi, I’m Amanda. 

I am an ordained pastor, Duke graduate, low-key woodworker, one-time National Trampoline Champ (yep, you read that right), Mama to 3 amazing kids, PPTSD survivor, and late diagnosed Autistic.

For two, soul-crushing years I had no roadmap to help me navigate the struggles with our PDA Autistic 6 year old.

Part of this struggle was that I believed a potent lie — a lie told in our culture that says when our kids are struggling, it's all the parent’s fault

I was told I needed more boundaries, more consequences, more consistency, and more calm! 

This lie created impossible expectations that robbed me of joy, grace, and connection. 

I was desperate for relief and when conventional parenting tactics didn’t work, I decided I would create what I needed.  

And that’s how The Low Demand Method was born!


You see, the path to regaining ease in your home will not come from pushing harder or raising the bar higher. It won't come from strict rules, or teaching one magic skill that ends every argument.

  • It comes from genuinely letting your loved ones, and yourself, off the hook and accept that when we can do better, we will.
  • It comes from prioritizing deep rest and relinquishing the societal grip on rushing and productivity.
  • It comes from dropping demands and practicing radical acceptance, day after day. 


Now, life isn’t tied up in a nice neat bow every day — the truth is, some days are still. so. hard!

But, by living the Low Demand Method every day, I’ve stopped the shame and guilt spiral I was in, and my children have gained the tools to thrive. 

I have enough left in the tank to be present for myself and my family.

I want that for you too!


“In the last 6 months, we have literally deconstructed everything about our family structure. It has been HARD, but seeing my children thrive and repairing my relationship with my PDA’er has been profound.

It’s not about what anyone else thinks. It’s about me aligning with my deep why and parenting my children in a way that allows them to flourish (even if other people don’t get it). Thank you Amanda for your soul work…”

Gabriele Z.
