Online Parenting Advice: Parenting Support Services
Being a parent is a journey unlike any other. You’ll have moments of euphoria where you feel wonderful because everything is working so well and other times when you’ll feel your confidence erode over a bad report card, or your child’s fourth temper tantrum of the day. All those feelings while perfectly normal, can make you feel as if you are on a roller coaster of emotion. That’s why Annie’s advice comes to you by way of packages purchased in advance to use when you need them. For more information about this online parenting advice support service, please see FAQ information below.

► Behavioural Intervention – FAQ
What’s included in Annie’s Behaviour Intervention Service?
Annie will not only guide you and show you practically what to do to stop challenging behaviours like picky eating, tantrums, sleeping issues and more, she’ll also show you the keys to keep challenging behaviours from coming back, leaving your whole family much happier. This service is designed to help you find your own inner confidence so you can tackle any issue that shows up from here on in. It’s really a case of making an investment in your future as a parent. Learn once, feel confident forever!
How does the process work?
Providing online parenting advice through Skype or Face time allows her to meet you in your home no matter where in the world you are. The first part of the Intervention is through an interview and consultation with you (the parent(s) or caregiver of the child). This interview and consultation will last between 2-3 hours. Parents generally find this interview to be relaxing and insightful. It is a non-judgemental, comforting and supportive process in which Annie first gets the larger picture of what is happening in your family, and then later explains how to practically put an end to all the challenging behaviours you’ve been dealing with.
To make sure you have everything you need, within 48 hours of the interview and consultation Annie will send you a parenting plan that has been written especially for you. It will explain again, in detail everything you need to know to banish your child’s challenging behaviours and bring peace and happiness to your home. The end result will leave you feeling in control of your life and your family much happier. The solutions she will provide you with are long term solutions and help you maintain long lasting and positive connections with your children.
How much does it cost?
The full Behaviour Intervention Service, including the 2-3 hour interview / consultation and personal parenting plan costs $489.00 Canadian Dollars which can be paid via Paypal. Annie does offer a payment plan with this service if you’d find that helpful. In that case, the amount is simply split in four payments with no interest charged.

I need help now! How Soon Can I Meet With Annie?
This depends on how many other clients Annie is seeing at the time you book. If your request for the Intervention is urgent, please let Annie know in the form below and she will respond to you as soon as possible. Annie does online parenting advice consultations at varying hours depending on the location of the family. She may be able to meet with you in as little as 48 hours.
Do you come to my home like Nanny 911 or Super Nanny?
Television shows like Nanny 911 shows highly trained British Nannies coming into the home of families for long periods of time (a week or more) and dealing with the issues that the families present. Annie the Nanny is often compared to the Nannies in this television program, not only for her British accent and taste for strong tea, but in her strong, warm, and integrative methods that can transform the life of a family. However, there are some differences between a made for television intervention and what you may find in real life (for example Annie doesn’t have a television camera following her around, so your family challenges remain totally confidential). Annie recently wrote an article explaining what the differences are for those who are wishing they could simply call Nanny 911’s number.
While the parenting show has the nanny there for long periods of time, Annie suggests that the large majority of clients do not need for her to step in to their home at all to give them the same happy outcome. She is able to provide online parenting advice by Skype or Face time that has just the same results as if she was there in person with you. With her training and well over 28 years experience solving parenting problems, Annie knows how what to look for and what questions to ask in order to find the solutions and achieve the best outcome. The answers the parents give to her questions are usually offer a far quicker method for intervention than waiting for the children to act out and show her first hand what the behaviour is.
In some cases, the family Annie is working with really want her to take the lead and come in to their home and work with them over a longer period. The reasons for this can vary. Some people want to have someone with them offering them support and guidance because other family support systems aren’t available to them or simply because they’d like to have the comfort of Annie physically present. Please contact Annie directly to get more information.
► Annie’s Support Packages FAQ
How will Annie’s support service help?
By working with Annie the Nanny, you’ll not only benefit from her knowledge, experience and help to guide you through any challenge but you will also come away with a huge increase in your own confidence. Often, just by being able to troubleshoot you realize that your instinct was there all along pointing you in the right direction. You’ll realize that you can do it!
Annie will take the time to support you and help you discover that inner confidence. She will meet with you face to face via Skype (or telephone if preferred). She can help you with any issue from your child’s behaviour at school through to how to help your child move forward from a personal set back in. Perhaps you want advice on how to handle a meltdown, or assistance with other behaviours such as lying, biting, or sibling fighting.
How does an online parenting support package work?
Support Packages can be taken by Skype, phone or email. They are designed to give you a helping hand and bring you peace of mind when you have questions. Those might be what to do about a certain behaviour or how to handle a situation with your child’s peers or at school. Other than the first half hour (which Annie does with Skype to better understand you and your family dynamics), the time purchased can be divided in to 15 minute increments or taken all at once as desired. Email replies to specific questions will have the time it takes for Annie to reply deducted from the balance.
How much are Annie’s support packages?
All former Behaviour Intervention Clients receive a 10% discount on Annie’s hourly rates. All hourly packages are respected for 2 years from the purchase date.
- 1 Hour = $130.00 CAD / Hour
- 5 Hours = $100.00 CAD / Hour

What Can I Discuss?
Anything really. Annie’s online parenting advice support package is designed to empower you and fill you with confidence so you feel you can handle the parenting challenges that come your way. Perhaps your child has started to display a behaviour you’re not comfortable with. Perhaps they’ve just blown off steam at their teacher and you’re not quite sure what to do. Perhaps they’ve hit a classmate or been bullied and you’re unsure how to approach the teacher. Annie is there as a support for you, to talk over the problem and come to some resolution. It’s a fun, non judgmental collaborative process. Annie has been asked to come and stay/live with many of the families she helps. Unfortunately she can only be in one place at time but is always appreciative of the offers!
► Does Annie Offer Support Packages for Business?
Yes, she does. Packages of hours are available to be purchased by any group wishing to offer comprehensive parenting support services for their members and can be combined with an introductory seminar, if required (rate applies).
