What is "low-demand parenting"?


Low-demand is a nervous-system attuned method to increase felt-safety by dropping demands and responding to needs, without judgment, so we can all thrive.

In simpler words, it's all about release. Letting go of what isn't really working, so we can embrace what is: trust, connection and safety.

Release for our kids from neurotypical expectations and "should's" and external judgments and behavior plans.

Release for us from shame and hustle and judgmental stares and proving we're good parents.

Ease and Joy

Let things go and embrace the relief and release it brings into your daily life.

A Fresh Take

You've heard the same advice a million times, and if it worked for your kid, wouldn't that be awesome?? Maybe it's time for something new.

It's Shame-Free

Sometimes our parenting journey involves more than a few bumps in the road. If you've been through trauma, this approach can honor your story.

Lighter Load

This isn’t one more thing you have to do but a new way of doing life and parenting.


Bring connection into your parenting with genuine respect and collaboration with your children.
