Become the Confident Parent your kids Crave You to Be + Learn Parenting Strategies for Epic Transformation in your toddler, child or teens behavior + Parenting Resources from infants to teens + Resources for YOU the parent to become the confident leader you are meant to be + Turn behavior problems into No-Problem + Strengthen your relationship with your kids + Improve the Trust and Respect between Parent and Child! Hey Parents! I’m Jaci Finneman, Parent Strategist and Coach. And, after 30 years and over 40,000 hours of experience working with children and families; ranging from the severe behaviors that required out-of-home placement to the ”she just doesn’t listen to me” behaviors - there IS a solution. Join me on this journey of behavioral strategies so that you can feel empowered as a parent again and reclaim your family’s peace! I will help YOU respond to your kid’s misbehavior without yelling at your kids and without feeling like you have to give in to their demands to keep the peace. I’ll teach you how to discover the root cause of your child’s behavior so that you understand why your kiddo is behaving the way they are and why you are responding to them the way you are (with anger or worry or guilt), then, I’ll teach you how to prepare for ”the worst”. It is true that we can’t possibly be prepared for every behavior challenge that comes our way BUT there are plenty of behaviors our kids display every day that we can prepare for and then respond to them instead of reacting. And finally, I teach you how to change the conversation with your kids so that your kids trust you, they learn they truly can come to you for encouragement, advice, direction or support as they grow up. Your kids will learn that you won’t rescue them from their problems, instead, they know and believe that you will guide them in dealing with and overcoming their challenges, whether the challenge is a mental health diagnosis, learning disability, health issue, or a common developmental stage your kiddo is going through. No-Problem Parenting teaches and supports you in Becoming the Confident Leader your kids crave you to be! Hugs and High Fives Parents! You Got This! No-Problem!

Co-founder of the #1 Parental Control Learning App Carrots&Cake helps kids build healthy screen time habits and parents say goodbye to screen time tantrums. Mother of two little girls
A TV journalist, Yale grad, and mother of two little girls. I felt like I was losing my mind during the lockdown and distance learning over my kids' screen time habits.
My husband and I set screen time limits, but our kids threw tantrums and rebelled when their time was up. Life turned into a negotiation. As parents, we found that fighting against Roblox, YouTube, Minecraft, and TikTok was a battle we could not win.
We tried parental control apps, but the existing technology didn't work. They were hard to set up, our kids broke out, and we got bombarded with notification requests for extra screen time. Fundamentally, we found the approach of simply limiting screen time flawed.
Families deserved something better.
So we teamed up with teachers, scientists, and child psychologists to create Carrots&Cake, an app focused on improving the quality of kids’ screen time. Now our kids have balance, we are happier, and our family has more time to connect.
Carrots&Cake prioritizes educational apps and gets kids to Learn First and Play Later. It puts parents in charge of technology while still giving kids agency. Our balanced limits help combat some of the biggest negative side effects associated with screen time: tantrums, anxiety, depression, obesity, sleeplessness, and lowered self-confidence. Tech companies and app developers understand a child’s dopamine reward pathway and leverage it to make it impossible for kids to put down their screens. Parents need to understand they aren’t fighting their kids over screen time, they’re battling Silicon Valley.
Since launching Carrots&Cake, parents report their kids’ daily screen time use is cut in half while time spent on educational apps has tripled.
Carrots&Cake has won The Mom’s Choice Award, Best New Mobile App Award 2022, and the Family Choice Award 2023
