We offer a free community of support for parents, a closed Facebook group "Raising Smart Cookies", where you can go to ask questions and find answers from other parents (and me!) to your most pressing parenting issues. To be added to this group, please contact me here.
Menu of Services
All of our paid services below address Smart Cookie's ultimate goal: equipping parents with tools to ensure that they raise children, "Smart Cookies!", who are academically successful and love learning. If you don't find what you're looking for in our Menu of Services, please contact us. We are here to help.
Fees vary depending on your family's unique needs. For more information on pricing, please contact me here.
Family Consultations are the heart and soul of Smart Cookie. We work with you and your family to address the unique issues you are facing. Common consultation needs/topics address educational or behavioral challenges you are facing with your preschool through 5th grade child and can include anything that you are currently working on in your home such as: homework becoming a stressor in your home, troubleshooting behavior issues at home and school, how to challenge your gifted child, navigating the common core standards as a parent, creating an environment welcoming to learning in your home and more.
A number of consultation packages are available. All include an initial phone consultation. Following this, I will create a specific action plan for your family and be available to check-in on the plan's progress, either over the phone or in your home, depending on your family's preference. The frequency and structure of my follow-ups with your family are dependent on your family's needs. Please fill out the contact form below for more information regarding consultation packages.
Parent Education Workshops
We host parenting workshops in the Los Angeles area. At this time we have no upcoming scheduled workshops. Please use the contact form below if you'd like to be updated with workshops scheduled in the future.
As an alternative, gather a group of fellow parents with a common question. We will come to your home (or meeting place you determine) and deliver an informational session to your group, geared toward your group's specific need.
Topics may include: Math and the Common Core Standards: understanding new problem-solving strategies, Literacy and the Common Core Standards, helping your child transition successfully to kindergarten/middle school, problem-solving homework struggles at home, raising a life-long reader and more.
