Learn proven strategies and routines for reducing power struggles and negative interactions in your home.

It’s time to stop feeling burnt out and guilty…and start taking action.

You’ve already tried…

  • Venting to your friends about how exhausting parenting is these days
  • Spending so much time on Google, trying to find the strategies and tools that will fit your child 
  • Reading all the books and blogs to try to figure out how to get your kids to do what they’re supposed to do 
  • Posting in Facebook groups to find out if it’s “normal” for your child’s resistance and meltdowns to be so big

But you get so many conflicting responses…And even when you try to use some of the tips you hear, the results aren’t consistent.

You know you need to do something different.

And this time, you want a clear plan of action, a trusted source for getting questions answered, and support to create positive change that actually lasts more than a week or two.

I’m Rachel Bailey, Parenting Specialist, speaker, podcaster and

founder of the Parenting Academy.

I’m on a mission to help parents feel more in control while raising responsible, resilient, confident kids. 

Over the past decade I’ve worked with over a thousand parents to bring out the best in their children and themselves.

I have a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology, a certification in Positive Discipline, and have served parents as an ADHD coach, in-home mentor, therapist, and teacher of positive parenting techniques. 

My work has been focused on improving the dynamics between family members and fostering responsible behavior, resilience, and healthy self-estteem in children (and adults!).

But if I’m being honest, my success isn’t based on any natural parenting abilities. I was not born to be a parent.

And if I didn’t do this for a living, I’d use the same “band aid” strategies that I see most parent using. (You know — those strategies that don’t seem to lead to consistent results.)

It’s because I struggle as a parent sometimes that I know which tools you need to see long-term, positive results. I teach practical strategies because that’s what I need myself.

I’d love to teach you these tools as well, just as I’ve taught so many other parents, so that you can finally feel more confident and in control… and feel good about the way you’re parenting.


In the Parenting Academy I’ll help you with:

Getting kids to listen the first time you ask

Learn what to say and do to motivate children and adolescents to clean up when they’re supposed to, do their homework, or get off of their devices

Handling meltdowns and big emotions

Understand how to respond effectively when your child can’t handle the fact that things aren’t always going to go their way.

Supporting anxious children

Get strategies for helping your child who worries…and building their resilience in the long run.

Staying calm as a parent

Learn effective tools for addressing your own feelings of stress, overwhelm, resentment, and guilt (even when they’re not related to parenting!).

Plus so much more!

“I just wanted to let you know how much of an impact this is having on my life as a whole….I’ve been able to feel in control again, in my parenting, career, and family relationships. Thank you so much!” – SW

I can teach you how to end your exhausting parenting cycle.

You can be that parent who doesn’t go to bed feeling exhausted and guilty each night, dreading the next (Groundhog) day!

It is possible to set boundaries without having to yell and engage in power struggles when asking your children to go to sleep, do their homework, clean up after themselves, and get dressed when they’re supposed to.

You can feel more confident in your ability to handle your children’s big emotions so you don’t have to walk on eggshells or avoid setting boundaries for fear of their meltdowns. 

You can feel less worried and anxious and stay in control of your emotions and handle any chaos around you without making it worse.

It is possible to enjoy — and actually look forward to — more time with your kids rather than dreading weekends and time off from school.

Inside the Parenting Academy you’ll receive instant access to:

  • The 4R Response Method for long-lasting improvement in behavior, moods, and attitudes in your home (not only in your children… but in yourself!).
  • Sample 4R Plans that demonstrate how you can respond better in real life situations.
  • Scripts and “Say This, Not That phrases” so you’ll never have to wonder what to say (or say the “wrong” thing that just makes the situation worse).
  • Tools from me and other guest experts that are meant to reduce your stress as a parent (and busy person).

  • Weekly time with me during open “Office Hours” to get answers to your most pressing parenting questions

  • Live 4R Practice sessions to help you master what to say and do for your most challenging behaviors
  • Monthly 5 Day Focus challenges to implement new tools and routines 

  • A private Facebook group where you can post questions any time and receive responses and support from me and other parents who get what you’re going through

  • Text messages that motivate, inspire, and keep you on track… even on tough days


  • Weekly emails that summarize everything so you don’t feel overwhelmed.
“Once again, you have come through for us, helping redirect the family dynamic, and this time encouraging not just me, but my kids as well, to be more self aware.” – J.S.
