Alyson Schafer B.Sc. MA Counselling


Alyson is one of Canada’s most notable parenting experts. She is a family counsellor with a clinical practice in Toronto, and has penned 3 best-selling parenting books; Breaking the Good Mom Myth, Honey, I Wrecked The Kids, and Ain’t Misbehavin’ which have been translated into Russian, Korean, Bulgarian and Turkish.  


Alyson speaks and teaches internationally, including the inaugural TEDxKids in Brussels. At home, she is the resident parenting expert for many media outlets such as; The Marilyn Denis Show, Global Morning, The Parenting Show, CBC radio and HuffPost Parents Canada.


Alyson delivers her deep insights in ways that today's busy parents can easily understand and immediately apply. She promotes a firm but friendly "democratic parenting" style, and offers practical solutions backed by extensive research and 20 years of working with families.



Back by popular demand, this workshop is only offered every few years.  Time-strapped parents have difficulty scheduling weekly parenting classes, so this bootcamp allows parents a "one-and-done" experience of learning condensed into one weekend.  Perfect for people travelling from out of town.  

Alyson's Parenting Bootcamp is a one weekend intensive parenting seminar designed for parents of children ages 18mo - 10years.  This is the essential parenting primer and toolkit every parent should have to be effective at raising children who are caring, co-operative and responsible.

Alyson packs a huge amount of both theory and technique in a humorous and engaging way that excites parents about the wonderful foot up they'll have to raising great kids!

You'll leave feeling confident about your parenting and knowing:

  • Your parenting style
  • What to do when it differs from your spouse
  • The trouble with using a punishment and reward system of discipline
  • The difference between obedience and co-operation in children
  • The basics of your child's personality development and a model for human growth
  • Understanding WHY children misbehave
  • Tools to respond and prevent misbehaviour
  • Positive discipline techniques to replace external control methods
  • How to be both firm and friendly in establishing routines and boundaries
  • The benefits and how-to's of holding family meetings

Alyson will show you how to deal with:

  • Dawdling
  • Tantrums
  • Sibling fighting
  • Nap and bedtimes that stick
  • Mealtime behaviours including picky eaters
  • Giving a child responsibility for chores and school work
