Certified Potty Training Consultant

After working as an Early Childhood Educator for the past decade, I have seen time and time again parents struggling to find the right techniques that work for their individual children when it comes to sleep training, potty training and common behavioural issues. 

I have started Calming Roots as a Sleep & Parenting Consultant to help families that need an extra boost of confidence in their abilities. Not every family is the same, and not every sleep or parenting technique can be approached the same way.

I work with families to create & implement plans that suit their specific needs in a loving and positive approach, that meets their needs and their child's that are centred around where their child is developmentally. I believe, when children are given predictable & consistent routines, they are able to grow deep roots and blossom!

are customized and suited to meet the needs for each family's individual needs.

They are available to families with children aged 4 months to 5 years old.

Hear From The Families that

Calming Roots - Sleep & Parenting Consulting 

has helped!

Being a first time mom with ZERO experience with children, I seriously could not have accomplished what I have without Calming Roots. We were able to establish a great sleep routine which has helped ME SLEEP and keep our whole family sane. 

We recently went through her Potty Training Program as well and after the first 2 days my daughter will now put herself on the potty all by herself. She had personalized charts/rewards and so many extra tips. Having the one-on-one was REAL support was extremely helpful.

Kierstin has been so kind, understanding and encouraging. She has so much experience and knowledge. Don't wait until your breaking point to get help!!

THANKYOU Calming Roots <3

Kendra D.

"We have been very blessed to have had Kierstin's help with both of our boys over the years. Kierstin has given us help with potty training, sleep training, and behavioral tips galore.
Our oldest loves his personalized 'chore chart' that really speaks to what motivates him. I love that Kierstin has cleverly set it up for him to add and subract 'points' helping him with math skills along the way.
Our youngest loves it when he gets to see Ms. Kierstin, he tells us it was a Ms. Kierstin day!
Kierstin is really able to quickly identify what resonates with our kids (they are very different from one another) and has helped me communicate much better by helping guide me in better understanding their different characteristics and how to connect with them differently.
I highly recommend her services and can't quite put in words what she has actually helped us with. But in short, she has restored sanity, calm and parental confidence for me on more than one occasion. It is perhaps a cliche to say, but she literally is a kid whisperer, there is no better way to describe her talents."

Rene S.

"Thanks to Kierstin's advice...our son had a great sleep on the first night we implemented the sleeping plan. This is really going to make a difference on our son and our family.
You are the best!"

Johanna P.

"Kierstin has been so supportive, helping me shift my daughters (1&3) sleep schedule slightly later in the mornings. They were both waking between 4:45-5:30 and now gradually we have gotten to 5:30-6 which feels so much more manageable. She has a very gentle approach and willingness to work with you until you have reached your desired result. So happy I called Kierstin!

Frances S.

"Kierstin is my parenting Guru, she has helped me since my daughter was a baby through sleep consulting and guiding my parenting skills/style. My daughter is thriving and we couldn’t be happier. If you are struggling with behavioural issues or just need a good nights rest, don’t wait any longer. THANK-YOU KIERSTIN!"

If you are overwhelmed or not quite sure where to start and what techniques you should be implementing with your child, hiring a consultant is a great idea! I will help you determine age appropriate techniques that you are 100% comfortable implementing. I will check in frequently to make sure you are staying consistent and will be there along the way to answer any questions that may arise.

    **If you would like to do this, go to 'book online' and send a request. We can do it either by a phone call or zoom...your choice! **

  2. After we have connected, and you have determined you would like to go ahead with one of my packages, go to the 'book online' tab.

    Payment options:
    E-transfer: info@calmingroots.ca (preferred)

  3. Once I have received your payment I will send you an intake form. Please fill it out as soon as you can so that I can go over it before our initial meeting.

  5. I will then begin to build and write up your customized plan with detailed instructions on how to implement with your child.
    **Will take 48 hours**

  7. I will be available for unlimited text and email support during the duration of your plan.
    **During business hours**


Seeing results will differ for each individual family. Age and temperament of each individual child are factors that will change outcomes for every family. Being CONSISTENT and setting age appropriate goals will be the key to success when implementing plans, and you should see improvements after a few days.   


The short answer is.....probably. These tears will be out of pure frustration, that things are not going the way your child wants. Your child has developed habits and expectations on how things should go, and as we all know...it is hard to create new routines. The more consistent you are the faster your child will learn that you will not be going back to the old way of doing things. The first few days are always the hardest but sticking them out and staying consistent will optimize results sooner. That being said, I will NEVER expect you to leave your child to ‘cry it out’. I have many different techniques that I can teach you how to implement and can scale each plan to your wishes so that you are 100% comfortable implementing it at home. 

All plans are formed with positive parenting techniques that set consistent boundaries while still providing care & love. 


Of course!
