The encouraging and practical advice I received from Sheryl and in the Inner Circle helps me feel more confident raising my teenagers. It’s a safe place to ask questions and get help whether it be inside the group or during one of Sheryl’s Facebook LIVES. I also love the units and guests she has on so I can continue to learn about parenting my teenagers and improve my parenting.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We've got A's for your Q's

How Do I Access The Membership?

When you register for the membership you will be directed to create a password and login for our membership site on MOTTS University, you will also receive an email with instructions to access our private Facebook Community. You will also receive our monthly "units," or mini-workshops as I like to call them, via email every week.

Is The Inner Circle Really Worth It?

We don’t know anywhere else on the Internet that you can access a variety of experts and ongoing support like this, for any price.

The Inner Circle gives you a place to feel like you can be yourself 100%. You can hear "me too," ask parenting experts that have sound advice, and feel more confident as a parent.

Parenting is stressful and most parents of tweens and teens have very little support. With this support, you can feel connected to your kids so you can be happier. It's taking care of yourself.  

I Really Want To Join The Inner Circle But I'm Too Busy Right Now

The Inner Circle is designed to bring the joy back into parenting your Teens and Tweens even if you only spend a few minutes a day!

Connection and Relationship are some of the most important things that we can provide for our kids. Research has shown that a warm relationship is the single strongest predictor of a child's future well-being.

If a few minutes, you can access tools, connect with other moms, talk to a parenting expert, watch parenting workshop, all without having to waste time searching all over the internet to do it!

The Internet is Full Of Free Parent Tips, Can't I Just Use Those?

Tips and Tricks may solve short-term problems but they WON'T create the warm, close relationship you and your teen deeply desire.

The Inner Circle is about parenting for the short AND long term.  

The Workshops and Lessons you'll get are research-backed and time-tested. You get to ask questions to make sure you understand, you get to follow up and chat with other moms, and this will result in effective and long-lasting changes.

Do I Need Facebook?

Nope! All of our content lives on our membership site with some also accessible through Facebook. However, Facebook will be the best and fastest way to connect with Sheryl and other moms!  

How Will I Know When There's New Content?

Every week Sheryl posts a new "mini-workshop" on our membership site you will automatically receive an email. We also send out email to register for our Inner Circle Exclusive workshops or interviews.
