What Are People Saying About The Consequence Of The Week Program?
I am not sure where the Freaky Mom set up the camera in my house. Her advice always seems to arrive at the perfect time. I love the practical advice and new ideas to deal with the ever changing behavior of a preteen. I enjoy the realistic and humorous approach of the COW, you can never have too much humor. If we cannot laugh at a our kids, who can we laugh at? Thanks Freaky Mom for helping me stay one step ahead of my kiddo.
They are great reminders to be engaged as a parent, get creative and have fun!
I love and look forward to reading COW emails because they get my wheels turning when I’m not in the heat of a challenging kid moment! They remind me that parenting is hard for most everyone, that I’m not alone in trying to figure out my path and that it’s oh so worth it to put extra energy into being our best selves as parents!
Lindsey always has the best consequences for kid behavior. It is like she knows my child or something. I can see more rock moving in my 6 year old’s future.
I have already raised my children but I find the consequences and rationale fascinating. I remember not always knowing what to do about a behavior. I found the consequence of running to interrupt the back seat fighting ingenious. I hope someone replies to let me know if they used the “running” consequence.
The trampoline has helped to calm him and also given him a lot of self confidence. He has taught himself through major practicing – to do front flips! We owe you! Best decision!
I love the consequences and the rationale of the week so very much! I look forward to getting them in my inbox each week!
Getting new ideas from other moms on consequences and discipline helps me to keep up with creative ideas that will teach my kids lasting lessons, making them think twice before returning to the behavior and help in raising great kids.
That’s the main goal we are all going for right?! Let’s face it, us moms have to stick together and need all the help we can get sometimes!
I also love that the consequences are all based on helping them grow and learn from their choices! It is much better than just yelling and acting like a crazy person when they choose to make poor choices!
(I’ve been known to act like this crazy person and don’t like the outcome!)
I also love these emails because I tend to blow off consequences due to the fact that I don’t want a fight or I’m too exhausted to even want to come up with something!
In getting Lindsey’s emails, I can choose from a variety of creative options, use them as they are or add in a dash of my own spice, which makes discipline so much easier!!
I do love getting these emails, each spread out throughout the week so that I can think on what I may say or do in each situation she presents. And then I compare notes, so to speak, when she sends her consequence ideas!!
Such a fun, creative way to help our kids grow to be the best they can be!
I highly recommend subscribing to Lindsey’s blog and signing up to receive her weekly emails!

Hey Freaky Mom!!!
The one who loves her kids with a passion, cheers loudest at their games, takes their phones for bad grades, says no when they’re begging for candy, expects the best, expects mistakes, reflects on her mothering style, is involved, embarrasses them because she loves them, knows their friends…and teaches them to do their own laundry at birth?
(oh, wait. that’s me.)
Welcome. You’re in good company.
Dear Second Place, You feel like you’ve failed. And you have. If your goal was to get first and you got second, you’re right. You failed. But in failure, you have two choices. Let it wear you down. Label yourself as a failure instead of what is true: you failed to...
Most kids do not understand how (or why) they should take personal responsibility for their actions. Blame is an easier route to take. Blame the other kid. Blame the teacher. Blame the weather. Blame the ref. Blame. Blame. Blame. So how do we teach our kids to...

If you're like most busy, active, work-at-home or work-away-from-home moms, you are overwhelmed, stressed, and doing everything - but feeling guilty about not doing enough. You are constantly looking for (but feeling out of) balance. On top of ALL that, you want your...
Hi Freaky Mom! I have to admit. I've been shakin' in my boots thinking about posting this...I wrote it two months ago. I just really don't want to offend anyone, but decided I'd post it in the hopes that if it's true for any of you, it might help. So... (***deep...
