What are "spirited" kids?

Some call them “deep-feelers” or highly sensitive. These are the kids that drive you to scour the internet for any scrap of support to parent these strong-willed entrepreneurs in the making. You try technique XYZ that wasn't made specifically for YOU and YOUR KID, and then when it doesn’t work, you might resort back to this:






When you do, you feel like a piece of your kid gets lost.

And a piece of you gets lost, too. 

You decide again to look for a better way. And the cycle continues.

At MFA, we break that cycle.

 We have broken it for the thousands of parents that listen to the podcast each week, and even more for the hundreds of parents whom I have personally shepherded through my 
MFA Mentorship Program.

How do I know? 

Because my inbox is constantly full of love letters like these:

“I can honestly say I am a different person, different mum right now.”


"I have so much more kindness for myself, my husband and my kiddos. I enjoy being with my kids, I like and love them!! I haven't always been able to say that.”


"We are really noticing a lot of change."

"A lot more harmony in our household, a lot more laughter and fun. I feel like the jigsaw puzzle is starting to create the picture I want to see."

"The boys are pushing your buttons, but you’re not cracking." 

"This morning I found my husband listening to your TTP. He said 'This must be helpful stuff. The boys are pushing your buttons, but you’re not cracking. I need to see what this is all about.' That was music to my ears…"

- F.M.L.

Hi, I’m Abigail!

I’ve been called “gold dust” for families and the “Esther Perel of Parenting.”

So what’s the secret to why parents say this is the “community I didn’t even know I needed” all while being able to experience an avalanche of big shifts in a short time?

The answer is the raw, personal mentorship I provide, backed by over ten years of helping parents rise.

Spirited kids require a different kind of parenting.
