We specialize in connection, not perfection. Here you'll find products, services and classes to help you connect and heal in your family from the comfort of home.
Parenting is hard work.
Kids can throw some really interesting behaviors at you.
It’s easy to feel like you’re drowning in advice that isn’t helpful.
Maybe you worry that your child will never be a functional adult, even if she’s still in elementary school.
Kids don’t always outgrow these behaviors, but there’s a lot you can do to help your child.
Join the hundreds of parents who have successfully applied our approach over the last 10 years and helped their kids by understanding the Hidden Story.
* We say moms for simplicity, but we mean any primary caregiver. It could be dad, grandma or grandpa, foster parents, future adoptive parents. Anyone who is primarily caring for a child.
“I always have trouble with my youngest son when it’s time to leave the house. He’s never ready no matter how much time I give him.
This morning, he refused to stop playing Lego to get in the car. I had given him plenty of notice that we were leaving the house and he still refused to get himself up off the floor. His sisters were already in the car waiting, as usual.
Everything I’ve read says to punish him, but that never actually works. I feel so frustrated and angry that this keeps happening and that I don’t know how to make it go any other way. This behavior doesn’t seem to make any sense. He WANTED to go to the zoo. Why does this always happen? I’ve tried consequences and punishments, but it’s always the same with this child. I am trying to figure out what I’m doing wrong and wondering if my son will ever grow up to be a functional adult.”
“We worked with Rebecca and discovered the hidden story from my son’s early experiences, which happened to be his birth. He wasn’t ready to be born – he was only 36 weeks – and due to my medical condition, he was born early by C-section. I learned from Rebecca that his experience of his birth was still showing up during his transitions, like leaving the house or getting up to the table for dinner. We were able to process his birth using the tools we learned, as well as how to support him during transitions.
I am so grateful to Rebecca and Consciously Parenting for helping us to discover what it truly means to Consciously Parent. He’s doing so much better with transitions now and our relationship has become much more peaceful. Our family life is so much more pleasant and we’re so much more connected. We still have our challenges, but we have the tools we need to get through the challenges now. Thanks, Rebecca!”
We have developed tools that combine research (left brain – logic) with stories (right brain – feelings). This combination is necessary for you to identify the Hidden Story, which is an emotional (right brain) story, not a logical one. Changing the story happens in the emotional brain.
We are going on this journey together. Your child needs you to go on this journey WITH him. Our process together will be similar to what your child needs, and you’ll have the support of the group to help you find your way to the stories in your own family.
This course is the Instruction Manual you’ve been half-joking you need for your child. The solutions are as individual as your child and your family.
February, Part 1: Why does early life matter? What is a Healthy Relationship anyway? (Available now!)
March, Part 2: Imprints and the story that babies have about what happens to them.
“It’s not what happens to you, it’s how you make sense of what happened.” Michael Trout
A look at the Healing Story approach with young children and what we can all learn about what they show us.
April, Part 3: Pre-conception, pregnancy and birth- looking at early imprints and how those patterns show up throughout life
May, Part 4: The first three years after birth- finding the thread of the story and how it shows up in early life and what you can do about it
June, Part 5: Patterns in families include our own early patterns- looking at the grown-ups and older kids
July, Part 6: Healing early patterns, whether you have a baby or you’re seeing the patterns showing up later
Registration is open for 15 days (closing Friday, February 7, 2020) and space is limited to make sure everyone gets personalized support to discover your own Hidden Stories, finding the solutions for YOUR family to help move through behaviors that don’t feel good for anyone. Last time this course was offered was winter 2018 and we're unsure when we will offer it again.

Please pay as much as you can afford to support the work we’re doing here at The Consciously Parenting Project. We strive to make our information affordable for all families. If you can afford more, you’re helping to support a family who might not otherwise be able to have the support, so thank you for paying more when you can.
Together we are stronger.
Together we make a difference.
Together we make the world a better place.
Our products and services all focus on supporting you to create, nurture and heal connection in your family from the comfort of home. Why? Because we're parents, too, and we know you want your home life to feel good. (And we know what it feels like when it doesn't feel good!) We also get that your time is limited, so we've made our resources accessible (many are downloadable) and affordable. All our information is based on the latest research in attachment, epigenetics, brain science, sociology, trauma, pre and perinatal psychology. We've read the research so you don't have to. We provide the tools, support, and inspiration to help you find your own way.
Now in our 15th year of supporting families around the globe, we've become a name you can trust to help you find your way to stay connected in your family and heal. No one-size-fits-all approaches here. Each family is unique. Each person's story is unique. When you buy from us, you're supporting families, not a large corporation, and you're helping to change the world one family at a time. Many of our services are discounted and many of our resources are available for free so that everyone has access regardless of ability to pay. Because everyone needs support. Purchasing resources here helps us continue our work creating rich content and inspiring connection and peace in homes around the world.
Rebecca affirms that she truly understands where we are, and that makes it seem more attainable when we talk about where we want to be, or what we can accomplish. Also, having conversations about what works for OUR family, not an abstract idea of the perfect family, gets me to listen.”
Rebecca Thompson Hitt, MS, MFT
Holistic Marriage and Family Therapist
The Consciously Parenting Project, LLC., was born when Rebecca found herself really struggling to be the parent she wanted to be with her first born. Despite her masters in marriage and family therapy and degree in education, she wasn't sure how to create the family she wanted and heal those things she didn't do the way she wanted. As she found her own way through a series of people who pointed the way back to connection, she was inspired to create resources and offer support for others who would find themselves in similar places. We all want our families to feel good and we need to know how to create healing spaces when they're needed.
Consciously Parenting also has expanded to include passionate parents and professionals from around the globe who share the vision of support for families. Through the Consciously Parenting training program, we are working to expand our capacity to offer more qualified support for individuals and families around the world.
Rebecca is the mom of 2 boys, ages 18 and 23 and bonus mom to two grown young adults. She's messed up plenty of things in parenting, but is here to walk beside you as you find your own way. All our resources are created with this in mind. When Rebecca isn't supporting parents or creating parenting resources, you'll find her wandering through the mountains outside of Oaxaca, Mexico, eating amazing food, and planning adventures to visit the ocean with her family.
