The 12 week program is essentially our handbook and guide to parenting which gives us back our confidence while also allowing us to enjoy parenting our wonderful children!
“Thank you Tia for helping us navigate the difficult challenge of parenting! We have solved our sleep issue with Kendall and are so thrilled that she is back to her old sleeping ways! The Parenting with Purpose Method support group and weekly coaching calls provide so much value and guidance and we love that we can always post a question and get your response so quickly! The 12 week program is essentially our handbook and guide to parenting which gives us back our confidence while also allowing us to enjoy parenting our wonderful children! Thank you for allowing us to hit the reset button and change the way we parent so that we set up our children for success! All the best,”
I've been meaning to thank you once again for your help in what was a very difficult time in my life, and for your faith and confidence in me, which was truly what I needed. And of course knowledge is power, and I will forever be grateful.
Our family worked with Tia when we were expecting our second baby. She was instrumental in setting out tools that we could use with our toddler (who was 2 1/2 at the time) to set the schedule for bedtime preparation routine and bedtime in general. Her tools of routing and how to make routine fun, use of a timer, and also allowing our toddler to make choices and living with those choices really helped us work through different tantrums and situations that arose. We love Tia's approach because it aligned with our values, allowing our toddler to make choices, and assisting with making the right choices. Tia's an expert in breaking down scenarios and situations into bite-size pieces. We highly recommend her services.
The kids are like night and day. There has been a huge shift!
The kids are like night and day. There has been a huge shift! We implemented tools from The Parenting Solutions Handbook and he is such a more well behaved kid.I’m so glad I found you! I feel like with just the handbook the yelling in the house has gone down like 90%. His behavior is soooo much better, he’s doing GREAT!
The bucket filling has really improved their attitudes. They are literally playing quietly in Jackson’s room rate now. It’s all I ever wanted. They have taken to their new task lists well and we are having minimal to no tantrums. I am probably doing too much still and snow plowing but it’s a great start.
Working with Tia was definitely life-changing!
Morning/bedtime boundaries and routines.. sibling rivalry... how to set up proper consequences.. yelling! We experienced so much more compliance and less stress. The best part we find is we know what to do when situations come up. We would ask her questions but as the program went on we were answering our own questions and just confirming with her. Working with Tia was definitely life-changing. We have learned so much and feel a whole lot better about how we treat our kids and respond to their actions. We all love Golden Time and because of doing so much of it the kids kick our butts a lot in their games. The only thing we wish was that we found her sooner 🙂
Mother of 3 (Ages 5, 4 and 20 months)
Tia is an incredible resource for frustrated parents who are not having luck with their current strategies. She can give you a fresh perspective and new habits to introduce with amazing results. We’re so grateful for the individualized care that she has given to our family.
Thank you so much Tia, we really found our session today to be helpful and it gave us a game plan. Thanks again so much, it was a pleasure meeting you and I felt relieved after our meeting knowing that there are things we can do to make a happy (and healthy) change for Theo.
Tia is kind, a great listener and a communicator, who is passionate about helping parents. She helped us by giving strategies and tools that we are still working on and seeing great results.
Inside the Parenting With Purpose Method we were able to share with her all of the issues we were experiencing and she made sure we covered and felt confident on how to deal with each one.
“We had an amazing experience working with Tia. Inside the Parenting With Purpose Method we were able to share with her all of the issues we were experiencing and she made sure we covered and felt confident on how to deal with each one. Our day to day life is definitely way smoother, as we have the confidence, knowledge and skills we were clearly lacking before.”
....a game-changer for us!
“This is a game-changer for us. THANK YOU! Progress is happening. We are steady on with Golden Time, starting our routines earlier, THANK YOU Tia! The kids are really getting into their charts this week - and Tosh even independently decided to 'get a head start' on his bedtime jobs after school and was very proud to report this to me (chose his book, laid out clothes for tomorrow, etc...). Jaw drop! 😉 Thanks for everything!”
It has been a pleasure working with Tia. She has helped me with my toddlers potty and sleep training as well as taking away her nightly bottle. We have also worked on routines, discipline and sibling rivalry for both my children.
Tia is hitting the core of my problem as soon as she listens. She gives me very useful tools to deal with my problem. I use the tools consistently to fix my parenting problems and my son and I are out of the problems.
We have learned how to stop yelling and implement reliable techniques.
We reached out to Tia because our 3 1/2-year-old son has was defiant in every respect. He rarely listened and often threw enormous tantrums almost every day. We were struggling with him not wanting to brush teeth, refusing to go to bed, get dressed, eat dinner, and tantrums over everything. He would lose his mind about getting dessert, IPad time, and was throwing toys when he didn’t get what he wanted. Being busy working parents of 3 kids under 4 years I needed to feel more at ease with less pressure and stress from all of the tantrums and not listening. Tia’s program created systems that our family could rely on which has created a new sense of calm (amidst the chaos) that I no longer dread and is actually now enjoyable. Tia has great tools around how to create clear and consistent boundaries, especially for toddlers. I think that’s exactly what we needed instead of throwing spaghetti against the wall every day when trying to discipline our son. We now have boundaries with natural consequences. We have systems for bedtime and morning routines. We have learned how to stop yelling and implement reliable techniques. What we loved most about the program was all the support, flexible online portion, and the community of parents going through similar challenges. Tia’s ongoing support and the ability to get our questions answered almost immediately, on coaching calls or simply in the FB group was beyond helpful. The learning hub was excellent in providing the tools we needed to implement and improve our parenting skills. Thank you, Tia!

Our little guy Adam is much pickier than his big sister when it comes to food. We had gotten to the point of tears (all of us) trying to incorporate new and healthy options into our supper routine. “Just 4 more bites.” “Just one bite?!?” "NO dessert for you young man!” It was a losing battle. One quick check in with Tia gave us some great new ideas to implement for mealtime. Within 3 days, Adam was trying the same fresh cut salsa and roasted sweet potatoes that he was turning his nose up at only the week before. Magic!
...it really should be easier then it currently is.
You make it all sound too easy and it's clearer now that it really should be easier then it currently is.
Implementing Tia’s strategies into my everyday parenting has been extremely beneficial for our family. It’s a feel-good approach that works because it's very logical! The overall home environment is calmer. As a parent, I feel more in control. I would highly recommend her.
I was stuck and Tia got me unstuck. Her approach isn’t overwhelming; it is simple and hits home in ways you can catch onto, and quick!
“The biggest take away for me has been the mindset shift. I was a good parent before, but I was struggling for power, taking things too personal, beating myself up with guilt, feeling not good enough and totally exhausted. Once I got insight into how to better understand my child and what he was feeling and needed from me as his guide it flipped a switch in me and I saw immediate results. I was stuck and Tia got me unstuck. Her approach isn’t overwhelming; it is simple and hits home in ways you can catch onto, and quick! I’m enjoying being a parent so much more now.”
I never felt judged for the parenting decisions I have made to date.
I found Tia to be very warm and engaging. She put me at ease and I felt comfortable talking to her. I never felt judged for the parenting decisions I have made to date. Tia is very positive and seems to be genuinely interesting in helping parents achieve a more harmonious lifestyle.
Refreshing and eye opening.
I've done only the "Breaking the yelling cycle" for now and I've already seen some changes. I asked my kids to help me stop yelling and that alone, worked magically. No they didn't mutate into magical children but we understand each other more. We respond instead of react. Refreshing and eye opening. For me it was key to understand that our children are here to push our boundaries. We're the adults here and are their role models.
Mom of 3
Our evenings are now calm, structured and predictable, and my kids love it!
"I am so happy I took Tia’s advice about putting my kids to bed earlier!! It has made life so much easier and the kids are much more rested (as well as happier and more cooperative)!Tia motivated us to implement a fixed and consistent bedtime routine as well. She helped us implement this with success by the use of a very helpful bedtime chart. This has been a game changer! Our evenings are now calm, structured and predictable, and my kids love it! I am feeling less tired and get more time to do my own things in the evenings. All I can say is, I now love early bedtimes and routines!"
The ironic thing about being parents is that it is one of the most impactful jobs we can do, yet we receive almost no formal training for it. This is where Tia comes in.
The ironic thing about being parents is that it is one of the most impactful jobs we can do, yet we receive almost no formal training for it. This is where Tia comes in.We reached out to Tia when we realized that we’d like to get off of the emotional roller coaster ride our 4 year old was taking us on. Years of boundary pushing, power struggles and tantrums have worn us down. We have been working with Tia for a few months and saw a change in our daughter’s behaviour that we never thought would be possible. The lightbulb moment came when my daughter simply accepted an answer of “Not right now but later” when she asked for something, instead of melting into a full on tantrum. We learned how to listen and using alternatives to “no”. My daughter learned how to listen and accept the boundaries we set.Tia has a wealth of knowledge and can distill concepts into real practical tips that we could implement. We had many small successes implementing Tia’s suggestions which built up to an overall pleasant parenting experience. It was an emotional, time and financial commitment upfront, but having the confidence as parents and seeing the progress in our children was worth every single cent and second. Thank you Tia!!!
We had the pleasure of working with Tia when our daughter was born.She has a common sense approach to sleeping that involves good habits from early on to encourage your child to fall into a routine.Our baby slept through the night at an early age and we didn't have to let her cry it out or do anything else that made me sad or feel bad for her like many of the sleep coaches tell you to do.People always ask us how our baby is such a good sleeper or how she never cries and is always happy - so I tell them about Tia's teachings - it's all thanks to her.Highly recommend Tia to anyone with sleep challenges.
This handbook is a must-have!
"My husband and I have found this to be an excellent resource when facing the challenges of toddlerhood! It provides clear, concise, tools and guidance on how to tackle everyday issues that one faces as a parent. I feel more prepared having read it, and having it in my "back pocket” as new issues arise. This handbook is a must-have!"
Hire Tia, she is a lifesaver!
Tia sees the big parenting picture and created a tailored plan for my family, that worked. My daughters share a room. I felt like my youngest sleep regression undermined 4 years of hard work and focus on sleep health. Tia got us back on track in just a few weeks. With her help, I met my kids developmentally where they are at. We have a structured, loving bedtime routine and kids that sleep. Tia is organized, responsive, relatable, professional, full of knowledge, passionate about parenting, supportive and the voice of reason when we needed it the most. Hire Tia, she is a lifesaver!
...the most informative, practical and effective parenting resource...
This is by far the most informative, practical and effective parenting resource that I have used to date! Tia’s solutions are extremely doable and appropriate. By using Tia’s strategies, our family feels more in control and at ease. I finally feel as though I am one step ahead of my children. Highly recommended!
...progress is happening after just one session.
I'm not even kidding...progress is happening after just one session. It's been so much better, even my husband noticed a change today!
Bedtime is a breeze.
"Bedtime is a breeze. Girls are in different rooms. Hazel falls asleep completely on her own. I rub Quinns back for a few minutes and leave, she falls asleep on her own. No joke-from start to finish, 30 minutes max! They are asleep by 630 and up around 630. Incredible! Thank you!"
With the addition of our third child, our other two were pushing boundaries and acting out. Tia helped us come up with some positive parenting tools to help us all deal with all the changes.
I feel better equipped to deal with the ups and downs.
Tia’s ideas are both relevant and effective and put me, as the parent, back in control again. My son is happier and feeling more understood. As unpredictable as kids can be, the bottom line is that I feel better equipped to deal with the ups and downs.
I really appreciated your straightforward approach and the explanations that went along with each module.
I was at a loss a few months ago and just didn’t know what I was doing wrong or why I was getting so frustrated and exhausted dealing with my kids. I knew there had to be help out there. I really appreciated your straightforward approach and the explanations that went along with each module. Simple approaches have helped me become much calmer with my boys and really feel more confident in my decisions. I feel that this approach will help build a better relationship with them and can be used over and over again as they grow and situations change. I am still learning as I go and sometimes make mistakes, but I feel less guilty about them now and can talk with the boys about my mistakes also, so we can all learn. Thank you for never speaking down to us with what may feel like a silly question. Your personality makes us feel validated without just giving us sympathy, but by giving us practical advice. Thank you again. I will continue to follow you and know that I have somewhere to turn if I feel lost again.
Mom of 2 Boys
We joined Tia’s 12 week program The Parenting With Purpose Method and have noticed big changes in our home.
“Like most parents, we want to ensure that we are doing everything we can to raise great kids. We've read books and tried different things, but wanted a proven program and access to an expert. Our kids had a great foundation with amazing sleep and boundaries around bedtime. However, we were worried that one of our kids' tantrums were not getting better with age, but worse. We felt we had tried everything to figure out how to handle/avoid them but were not seeing much progress. We knew we wanted to make actual changes to have more peace in our home. We joined Tia’s 12 week program The Parenting With Purpose Method and have noticed big changes in our home. There is hardly ever any yelling, our kids are taking on more responsibility and have more confidence and best of all, the tantrums are few and far between. When they do happen, we know exactly how to handle them. We are so happy with the progress we’ve made so far and know with more time and consistency, it will get even better. Thanks Tia!”
Tia's tools helped us deal with all the changes.
With the addition of our third child, our other two were pushing boundaries and acting out. Tia’s positive parenting tools helped us deal with all the changes.
I'm a more confident mom.
The Parenting With Purpose Method was different in the breakdown of specific issues....each module taking tiny steps in understanding....also the fact that I could ask specific questions in the group that pertained to my family instead of broad advice for everyone. It just clicks better that way. I have a better understanding of what works and what doesn’t. It’s still a work in progress but I have so much hope instead of the every day dread of “what will go wrong today?” I'm a more confident mom. I would say to go for it and buckle down and take it seriously. You will come out feeling more confident with a better understanding of your child’s behaviors and feelings.
Corresponding with Tia has been the most eye-opening, sensible, encouraging and feel good process! Her ideas are both relevant and effective and put me as the parent back in control again. My son is happier and feeling more understood. As unpredictable as kids can be, the bottom line is that I feel better equipped to deal with the ups and downs. Working with Tia has added tremendous value to our family and I would highly recommend her.
Since birth, my daughter has co-slept with us, jumped out of cribs, snuck into our bed night after night. She has resisted bedtime with broken baby gates, temper tantrums, manipulation, tears and tears, so many tears (myself included). I can’t remember a time when I didn't lay with her until I was unequivocally sure she would be asleep, blood running cold, praying she won’t notice my attempt to sneak out of her room. Last night we read books, we talked, we sang one song and at 8:00 pm she went to sleep...alone. Tia ❤ Thank you for my evening time freedom!
When I met with Tia I was at the end of my rope, my son’s sleeping habits had really regressed. When Adam turned 4 months his sleep got even worse, he used to sleep at night for 6 – 7 hour stretches, then he started waking up every 2 – 3 hours. The first night of sleep training was tough but I followed Tia’s guidelines and it worked. Adam falls asleep within 5 minutes, he rarely cries and is now sleeping 11 – 12 hours at night.
Tia was a lifesaver for me. I came to her at a time when I was struggling with the whining and the tantrums. Tia provided us with some pertinent tools that turned everything around. These are basic, easy-to-implement tools.
Before I attended Tia's group coaching session, I was feeling desperate and exhausted. After only a 1-hour session, I went back home feeling very hopeful and immediately followed Tia's advice when my son came home from daycare and started one of his usual tantrums. The advice magically worked and I felt so proud of myself and lucky to have met Tia!
Zoey, our 2 months old, is sleeping a lot in the day...and in her crib at night! What can I say? An angel baby!!! Thank you Tia!
It’s not overwhelming because it’s done one step at a time. The tools are so practical that you make progress weekly.
“The Parenting With Purpose Method is so much more than just a course. It takes all the challenges parents face and lets you go through week by week to make changes. It’s not overwhelming because it’s done one step at a time. The tools are so practical that you make progress weekly. Adding in the once-weekly coaching calls allows me to hear other parent’s challenges, learn from them, and helps me realize that it’s not just my kids and I floundering! It’s amazing to troubleshoot with Tia in real-time. I’m definitely more confident in my parenting and I feel like I understand my kids more from their perspective.”
It has truly been an absolute pleasure working with you. You have taught me so much and I respect you as a person, mom and educator! I will continue to engage on Instagram and hope to stay in touch.
I have completely changed as a parent...
Tia filled up my toolkit literally and figuratively! I have completely changed as a person as well as a parent -Tia taught me more than I signed up for.
"...some of the lessons transcend beyond your children."
I’ve learned a lot from the Parenting with a Purpose methods but what I find most interesting is that some of the lessons transcend beyond your children. For example at work today, I spoke about natural versus logical consequences and how as leaders, we sometimes rob our teams of potential learning lessons by bailing them out of certain situations. What works for my kids will also work wonders for my teams growth. It’s a two for one!
...workshops and one-on-one meetings with Tia... have been very beneficial...
I had the opportunity to attend some workshops and one-on-one meetings with Tia, which have been very beneficial to understand some of the behavioral challenges we had with my son and the best way to approach them.
We highly recommend Tia to anyone who wants to improve their connection with their children and get them to listen and behave respectfully.
We chose the VIP package with Tia Slightham Parenting Solutions and this was a really great decision for us. Tia has given us tools and advice on how to handle, not only morning and bedtime routines, but also how to teach our son responsibility, improve his behavior at home and at school. Tia also brought us closer as a family through family meetings. With the VIP package we not only had coaching sessions with Tia, but also had ongoing e-mail support. Tia really makes her clients as a priority. She also went above and beyond to give us advice on how to handle tricky situations at school. We highly recommend Tia to anyone who wants to improve their connection with their children and get them to listen and behave respectfully.
When I play sports, I have a coach. When I was in the corporate world, I had a career coach. So it was a simple answer that I would get a parenting coach when I had questions about sleep training.Before I contacted Tia I had read books and articles about sleep training and I was confused. Tia’s solutions are customized for a child’s personality yet very simple, and easy to implement. She is one of those with people who won’t make you feel judged. She just offers supports.
Tia taught me more than I signed up for!
When I reached out to Tia, I was stressed and unhappy about my parenting. It had reached a such a level where I wasn’t able to focus on any other part of my life. It felt like nothing I tried in order to have good days with my toddler was working. Even after just the discovery call with Tia, I learned so much about my toddler’s perspective and felt validated and heard as a parent. Tia promised me that just because my daughter was a toddler, it didn’t mean that life should be hard or even had to be. She gave me so much hope and as we worked together, I believed that she wanted me to succeed as a parent and that she totally understood my child and what would work for her, without having met her. Tia filled up my toolkit both figuratively and literally, and it was reinforced during each call and module I went over. I have completely changed as a person as well as a parent - Tia taught me more than I signed up for. I couldn’t ever thank Tia enough for her support and willingness to work with out struggles!
...it’s becoming a very positive way of parenting that before I met Tia I truly had no clue about.
The Parenting Purpose With Method was truly what I was looking for. It connected with me more than any other method out there. I really enjoy the weekly coaching calls to get my own questions answered and learn what others are going through too...I really don’t feel alone as a result. It’s a very supportive program.I was talking to my friend the other day... she was like that exists... lol yes it does! Tia’s coaching helps me answer questions and gives me reassurance as well as confidence that I’ve got this. Call it coaching or therapy or support with expertise on demand. Yes Mommas and Papas it does work... with hard work and commitment I am catching myself every moment of the day thinking about what I’ve learned and it’s becoming a very positive way of parenting that before I met Tia I truly had no clue about. You can try to google but diving in and learning the Parenting With Purpose Method gave me the right tools to do things properly.I am proud of myself that I have solutions to bedtimes, meltdowns vs tantrums, etc..It has helped us very much and we are truly enjoying ourselves as parents. But the best part is it has also made us even closer as a family. I now see my 3 year old as my teammate:)
"Giving my son my complete attention and focus has had a tremendous impact..."
A close friend of mine heard Tia speak about Golden Time and passed on the learning to me. We have kids in completely different stages of life, but the same strategies apply. Giving my son my complete attention and focus (to do whatever activity he likes) has had a tremendous impact on our relationship, our happiness, and my sanity. Putting away the phone, turning off the TV, and walking away from my "to-do" list for 10-15 minutes can seem like an impossible task, but it's ony 15 minutes! A small amount of time one-on-one with your child feels like an eternity to them, and I see (and feel) how much he appreciates it.
I strongly recommend parents to buy any of Tia's programs...
Her Parenting Solutions Handbook is amazing! I strongly recommend parents to join her workshops, which really helps us to do a better job as parents and help our kids gain better life skills. We can’t thank you enough Tia!!! We love our Golden Time.”
We are so thankful for you! Just sleep trained baby number 2 and within one night she was sleeping through!!
In just a few weeks we were more in control with our own emotions and parenting.
“We are so happy we found Tia. In just a few weeks we were more in control of our own emotions and parenting. Times where we would have normally had boiled blood yelled and spanked, we now are able to respond in a calm and effective way.”
Tia explains her methods in a way that makes sense and are easy to follow. She is always available for follow up and answers any questions I have very promptly. My household is definitely running smoother as a result of working with Tia!
This handbook is definitely the right format for busy working parents.
"We found The Parenting Handbook easy to read and follow. We did use the suggested charts (wheel of choice) and others. We have made a lot of progress in the last 6 months. I love that I’m able to go back to the handbook and revisit when needed. This handbook is definitely the right format for busy working parents."
Your tools have changed my life and the way I face motherhood!
The Parenting Manual has provided with effective tools and techniques to gently deal and correct our current parenting struggles with our toddler. We are seeing a lot of improvements and look forward to keep learning more about positive discipline.
After working with Tia inside The Parenting With Purpose Method we feel better equipped to deal with tantrums and meltdowns that our 6 year son was having.
“Working with Tia was wonderful! Tia is a wealth of knowledge with a practical/common sense approach. After working with Tia inside The Parenting With Purpose Method we feel better equipped to deal with tantrums and meltdowns that our 6 year son was having. Introducing her tools and positive parenting approach and changed our parenting experience. The program has all of her tools in an easy way to follow and grasp, especially for busy parents!”
Tia was supportive and encouraging. Each time we spoke to her she would provide me with other little suggestions to tweak things or try to help ease the changes for everyone. The sleep issues we were experiencing have improved tremendously and I am so happy that I made the call to Tia!
The "TOP 10 Mealtime Mistakes Module" is brilliant! So interesting!”
For years, I have struggled with trying to research advice and tips on how to raise my children in an effective and positive manner. But at the end of many days, I’d find myself in a pool of guilt and replaying the power struggles in my head. Tomorrow, it’ll be better. Right? My husband and I finally realized that our independent and confusing mixture of ideas on parenting wasn’t working, even though we wanted the same goal. After learning about Tia’s Parenting with Purpose Method, it didn’t take long for us to sign up. We received structured coaching that dealt with the whole picture of parenting young kids in a way that wasn’t overwhelming. We learned the WHY behind this parenting method as well as the WHY behind our children’s behaviour. My husband and I are now on the same page and our household is much calmer! It’s amazing to feel free of the guilt and feel equipped to deal with instances such as sibling rivalry. It also helps to have access to the materials for parental maintenance. Finally, my kids get the consistent parenting they need with the respect that they deserve.
People always ask us how our baby is such a good sleeper or how she never cries and is always happy - so I tell them about Tia's teachings - it's all thanks to her.
Golden Time helped so much!
"Golden Time helped so much. I'm on the first day of training and really trying to keep it up."
Maddie has been sleeping 12 hrs straight and in the last couple of days, she has shown signs of tiredness during the day and went down for 2 naps without a fight! What a difference to her sleep before the sleep training all began!”
