You know what I mean by "Supermom." If you've ever ...
- scrolled through adorable educational activities in your social media feeds and felt guilty for not doing enough for your one year old's learning
- felt like your toddler was missing out on valuable learning time when you're bogged down prepping meals, running errands, changing diapers and bathing your kiddo
- felt uncertain about what healthy, normal development looks like after your baby's first birthday
- felt pressured to enroll your young toddler in an enrichment class to support his development
- felt like you're failing as a parent because your one year old pushed on the playground, snatched a toy or threw the fourth tantrum of the day by lunchtime
Then it's time to ditch the myth of picture-perfect parenthood, buck the Supermom pressure and stop believing that crazy exhausting, never-quite-good-enough overachieving is the right and necessary way to give our toddlers what they need to learn. It's time to...
- know in your mama gut that all the everyday activities you do with your one year old are promoting learning in this critical developmental window
- feel confident that you're supporting simple, child-led learning that can happen right in the middle of your daily grind
- really understand your one year old's development and clearly see it naturally unfolding without the need for planning or pushing or perfection from you
- feel relieved of the need for expensive enrichment classes for one year olds
- feel reassured that your toddler parenting challenges are normal and feel equipped to handle them
Toddlers learn so much between ages 1 and 2. Ready to support all the new skills — movement, sensory, speech and communication, social-emotional and independence — she'll learn this year?
Meeting Milestones & Making It To Bedtime
I'm Rachel Coley - pediatric Occupational Therapist and infant/toddler development expert - and I used to feel the weight of the Supermom pressure every day.
It snuck up on me through my first year of motherhood. But by the time the candles on my firstborn's birthday cake were blown out, I was caught up in this crazy idea that I always needed to be doing more, more, more to keep his learning and development on track.
I somehow internalized the message that our daily life and what I naturally had to offer my kids wasn't enough. That just playing on the floor while I folded laundry or joining me on my trips to Target was time wasted for my one year old. The Supermom pressure overshadowed everything I knew as an OT and in my mama gut about what young toddlers really need to learn and develop well.
I finally said 'ENOUGH!' And by the time my second baby turned one, I was able to enjoy relaxed, low-pressure, confident toddler parenting!
I discovered the secrets YOU need to resist the Supermom pressure and feel happier and more confident as a toddler mom. And I've shared them all in my online course Meeting Milestones & Making It To Bedtime so you, too, can free your motherhood from the weight of Supermom pressure.

Meet the toddler Expert behind The course
I'm Rachel Coley, MS, OT/L and I'm really proud of those letters after my name that signify that I'm a trained and Licensed Occupational Therapist. The field of Occupational Therapy is all about helping people get the most out of life and using the benefits of everyday activities for our health and well-being. It's pretty much the coolest profession ever. ESPECIALLY since I've devoted my entire 11 year career to working with children and their families. And "early intervention" - working with kiddos in the first 3 years of life - is my JAM. It's my professional sweet spot. I've honed my expertise and experience with this age group and helped hundreds of families give their toddlers exactly what they need to developmentally thrive.
But then there's my other experience as a toddler expert - my life as a mom. I had my first two kiddos 17 months apart so I dove head-first into the deep end of the toddler parenting pool. One toddler is challenging enough but a young one year old and an infant? Woah. Two toddlers at once? I learned really quickly that there's no way to survive that with your sanity if you're clinging to a Supermom Complex.
It was my professional background as a pediatric Occupational Therapist that enabled me to crush my Supermom Complex!
I tapped into my advanced training in early neurodevelopment, sensory processing, psychology, functional communication and a whole bunch more child development nerdiness from my life as an OT to free me from the pressure to always be doing MORE for my kiddos.
I relied on my expertise in how exactly how toddlers learn - through imitation, exploration and trial and error - to protect me from the pressure to plan and prep learning activities for my kids or enroll them in a bunch of enrichment activities.
I'm a happier, more confident mom because I see all the learning that's happening in my messy, chaotic (and LOUD) house, around our neighborhood and in the aisles at Target. I want to share the mama peace of mind I've found with you by giving you a glimpse at what developmental experts like me know about one year olds, what they need to learn and the most down-to-earth and do-able ways they can learn it!
- Is my child too old to benefit from this course? This course spans the entire one year old year. Whether your child is a few months shy of turning one, a year and a day old or two is on the horizon, you will gain a ton of valuable information to help you shed the Supermom pressure while ensuring that your kiddo is developmentally on track.
- Is this course only about one year olds? Because SO much changes SO quickly in a child's first 3 years of life, the one year old year and the development that unfolds in it is really unique. For this reason, I focused this course specifically on one year olds to give parents of one year olds the exact information they need to teach their toddlers well. Other CanDo Kiddo resources are available for babies under one and future resources will be developed to address toddlers beyond one.
- Will I have off-line access to the course? The course dashboard and video modules are only available when you have internet access. The Printable Skills Lists for each area of development can be downloaded/printed for offline use. And the FULL version of the course includes downloadable/printable slides and transcripts for each lesson for off-line reference.
