changing the lens on discipline

Imagine if you knew the root of where your child’s behavior is coming from...

How would it change your parenting strategy?

If you’re a parent who feels like their home is chaotic, filled with yelling and frustration… you’re not alone. 

Parenting pop culture leads us to feel like we’re alone in our struggles and everyone else is a perfect parent who never yells with perfectly behaved children.

And it leads us “regular parents” to feelings of guilt and inadequacy, leaving us thinking we’re not doing enough for our kids… which just isn’t true!  

You are the single BEST expert on your child. 

If you are a parent looking to better connect with your child, without feeling frustrated or impatient – you’re in the right place.

Setting the foundation for healthy child development

Inside this webinar, you’ll learn how to set firm, but kind, boundaries with your children while keeping the connection at the forefront.

It offers insight into why we react the way we do to our child’s behavior, as well as what work we need to do on OURSELVES as we travel along on our parenting journey.

It shares how many of the traditional, handed-down approaches to discipline can actually damage our relationships with our children and promote disconnection, rather than bringing you and your child closer together.

Imagine what would it be like to…

I know you’ve tried “no yelling” and always end up reacting in the moment to your child’s tantrum.

Maybe you think you’re not capable of changing your own behavior, because this is how you were raised, too…

I’m here to show you that you’ve got this!

Repeat after me. 

I am the single best expert on my child.

You’ll be setting the foundation for them to grow up in the best way possible.

You’ll be making an impact not only on how your family feels right now, but also setting your child up to be the best version of themselves in the future.


Why should you trust me to teach you this?

I have spent my life’s work studying the developing child and the impact of parenting on child development. I know this field inside and out, backwards and frontwards. And yet, I have lost my cool with my kids. Many times. And I will probably do it again. 

I pull from my own experience as a mom, as well as my experience supporting families and children as a registered psychologist. I am not afraid to walk through the hard stuff with you because I want to empower you to know without a doubt that you can do this.

"Dr Vanessa has influenced me greatly both through her work with my family, and by inspiring my own therapy practice to follow her principles. Her developmental approach is exactly what this planet needs for our children."

In case we haven’t met...

Hi, I'm Dr. Vanessa Lapointe

I’m a registered psychologist, parenting educator, and mom to two growing boys. From my work in my practice – and as a mother – I have come to understand the connection between behaviour and child development, as well as the incredible power of the relationship between parent and child.  

I’m passionate about helping parents see the world through their children’s eyes because I believe that once we can do that, we are beautifully positioned to help our children grow in the best way possible. 

I have been supporting families and children for almost 20 years through my developmental clinic and work within community mental health and the school system, and I look forward to travelling on this journey with you. 


"Discipline Without Damage is one of the best parenting books I have read in years... I hope this book makes it onto every parent’s shortlist. I think it can change the world!"

– Dr Laura Markham, PhD – Founder of, and New York Times best-selling author of Peaceful Parents, Happy Kid
