Overwhelm. 
Hello Play.
PREORDER IS OPEN!

INTRODUCING

Present Play 

The proven blueprint to make your life rock, even with little kids. 

Present Play is a membership that transforms your parenting. It's designed for parents who think "there must be a better way" and want to ENJOY this season, rather than succumb to overwhelm. 

After helping thousands of parents worldwide to love parenting, Present Play is proven to work whether you are a... 

  • NEWBIE
    A new parent, confused by the seven trillion resources about parenting the “right way”...
  • PEACEKEEPER
    Exasperated by sibling rivalry, always scrambling to break up fights and protect the little ones...
  • MARTYR
    Taking care of everyone but yourself, longing for bedtime to roll around so you can pass out, only to do it all over again the next day...
  • SCROLLER
    Stuck in comparison, analysis paralysis and fear that everyone out there is secretly judging you. All the best ideas are pinned and saved but never implemented...
  • JUGGLER
    A working parent, depleted from hustling and trying to do it all...
  • COVID MOMMY
    Stuck at home, feeling equally bored AND overwhelmed...
  • PROCRASTINATOR
    Struggling to implement the good habits you know you “should” be doing... 
  • INVISIBLE
    Missing friendship and yearning for community... feeling like you're on an island, isolated and misunderstood
  • PERFECTIONIST
    Paralyzed by all the choices, feeling unqualified - like you're "messing up" and Never. Good. Enough...
  • SOLE COMPANION
    Exhausted being "everything" for your only child.
  • MISFIT
    Judged just trying to live to the beat of your own drum and unsupported - never fitting perfectly in any parenting "group"...
  • YELLER
    Triggered, raging, and racked with guilt. Promising yourself you'll never raise your voice again, only to find your throat soar from yelling the next day...
  • HOARDER
    Toys R Us threw up in your living room, every surface is cluttered in useless stuff that was supposed to "entertain," yet the kids still don't play... 

You've come to the right place. 

Parenting can be totally overwhelming.

Parenting can be a struggle at the best of times and completely overwhelming at the worst of times.

Whether you're a new parent, confused by the seven trillion resources about parenting the “right way”, or an experienced parent who's juggling, hustling and trying to do it all... 

Maybe you're stuck at home in lockdown for weeks on end, equally bored AND overwhelmed, or you're an "original," living to beat of your own drum, never fitting perfectly into any parenting "group"...

It can feel like Toys R Us threw up in our living room. 

Parenting seems to come with so many responsibilities and so much "stuff" to handle!

It can make even the most organized among us a bit of a hoarder. Kids come with all this "junk" and they even color on the walls, which is so last season! Every surface seems buried in useless stuff that was supposed to "entertain" and yet the kids still don't play... 

We can look around our house and feel like it's just not the high vibe sanctuary we wished for our home to be. 

We might find ourselves waiting for bedtime every day.

Every family has its own unique challenges... 

Maybe you've become a bit of a martyr, taking care of everyone but yourself, longing for bedtime to roll around so you can collapse into bed... only to do it all over again the next day.

If you have an only child, you might be exhausted being "everything" to them.

Or if you have more than one, you're suddenly the Peace Keeper: Exasperated by sibling rivalry, always scrambling to break up fights, and protect the little ones.

Sometimes it feels like everyone and their grandma is judging you.

It's hard to figure out the "right way" to parent.

Ever find yourself paralyzed by all the choices, feeling like you're "messing up" and never good enough?

Our phones don't make it any easier. Do you ever find yourself scrolling, stuck in total analysis paralysis, making comparisons and feeling like everyone out there is secretly judging you?

Maybe you're struggling to implement the good habits you know you “should” be doing. You've got all the best ideas pinned and saved, but never take action.

I've often felt 'invisible' as a mom... lonely and alone, like I'm on an island... missing friendship and yearning for community. 

We all mess up, but the mom guilt can be crushing. 

Maybe this cycle sounds familiar: get triggered, start yelling, feel guilty, rinse, repeat. 

Ever found yourself promising you'll never raise your voice again, only to find your throat soar from yelling the next day?

Maybe you have thoughts like "I'm messing this up" or "Why is this so hard?" or even "I can't take it anymore".

You probably have big dreams and fantasies about what parenting could or should be like and yet there seems to be a gaping hole between where you are and where you want to be. 

All of this can leave us feeling Not. Good. Enough.  

But... you deserve to enjoy your kids and they deserve to enjoy their childhood.
We all know that kids grow up in the blink of an eye and we don’t want to look back when they’re grown and think: coulda, woulda, shoulda.
Here's the good news:
Parenting doesn't have to suck...
In Present Play We believe in you and your parenting. 
It’s important to have people believe in you, isn’t it? 

As a Present Player you will turn down the outside noise and get in touch with your unique gifts and skills as a parent! You’ll learn how to amplify your own genius and create real results in your home and family life.  

Get detailed, customizable coaching to address the unique challenges your family is struggling with right now. From time management to home design, parenting issues to independent play - Present Play helps you to figure it all out and get you back to enjoying life with little ones. 

Be guided, supported and celebrated in being the best parent you can be to your unique child. 

Present Play will help you to love parenting and parent from love. See the results ripple out into every area of your life and take pride in knowing that those ripples will echo throughout generations to come. 
So what changes will you be creating each month? I’m so glad you asked! Buckle up, there’s an incredible ride ahead: 

That sigh of relief? That's what you'll feel inside Present Play.

Present Play is a PROVEN method. 
So what does Present Play cost?
Well, let's look at your options and put this into perspective. 

If you wanted me to coach you, you could hire me privately, which would cost $300 per hour.

And the truth is, a lot of people do that. 

But even if you only came once a month - that would tally up to $3,600 per year.

Wanna meet once a week? That comes to $15,600 per year!

(To be honest, that would be impossible because my schedule is booked out).

In Present Play, you will overcome overwhelm and gain the clarity to create a home life you love for just $400 for an entire year. 

And here's the craziest part:
After 5 consecutive years in Present Play, you'll never pay again.
That’s right! Spend five years in Present Play and we will pay for your lifetime membership. 

That’s because we’re here for the long haul. Present Play is not a quick fix. We're here to raise our kids together - because parenting is a marathon, not a sprint. 

You will revisit the same themes every year because, in Present Play, we understand that you are never “finished” creating family bliss. Our aim is to guide you on this lifestyle journey for years to come. 

As a Present Player you will be part of a diverse community. In fact, we have members from more than 73 countries!

Present Play is what coexistence looks like in a real community. It isn’t just a program - it’s a movement. We cherish diversity because it enables us to pool together parenting wisdom from our respective cultures to enrich everyone in the group.

This is how we change the world: one childhood at a time. It’s my passionate belief that each family that becomes just a little bit more peaceful, every parent that feels a little bit more presence and every child that gets to play a little bit more - creates a ripple effect in the world that will be felt for decades to come. 

THIS is how we manifest meaningful, deep and lasting change that benefits the people we love well into future generations

Alright my friend, it seems to me like you have a choice to make. 
You could either:

a) Do nothing. 
b) Join Present Play. 
As you already know, when you do nothing... nothing changes, and you get more of the same old frustrations.

When you do nothing...
All of the frustrating patterns continue...
Your child’s behaviors stay the same...
Your home life doesn’t improve...
You don’t grow or learn or experience any lasting transformation... 

...and that’s ok. Truly, it is. Not everyone is ready to make big changes in their lives.

But if you have that little voice inside that says: There must be a better way...

I'd love for you to choose option B and join Present Play - because your intuition is spot on: there is a better way!

Parenting is inherently challenging, I’m not gonna lie. But when you join Present Play, you’ll be joining a growing, vibrant, supportive group of parents who won’t settle for struggling through their kids’ childhood in survival mode.

Do Present Players have “off” days or “low” seasons? Of course! But they are still committed to the bigger picture and focused on those core founding principles: Presence, Peace and Play.

Our members are real, flesh-and-blood, imperfect parents who are working their buns off to be the best they can be for their children. 

We support each other through good times and bad, highs and lows, and everything in between. 

We hold each other’s goodness to light and encourage each other to authentically parent from the heart. 
In Present Play, you are empowered to live your true values, and never told what those values should be. 
Present Play is here to support you, empathize with your struggles, celebrate your wins, brainstorm solutions, witness your growth and parent alongside you. We're here to help you create YOUR vision, not tell you what that vision should be.
So what’s it gonna be… 
Do nothing? 
Procrastinate? 
Say “maybe next year”? 

Will you try to piece it together yourself, only to let life get in the way while your goals fall by the wayside?

Or are you ready to say:
  • YES to your family
  • ​YES to a new way
  • ​YES to being the parent you want to be
  • YES to enjoying your children while they’re still young 
  • ​YES to rocking parenting
  • ​YES to support and friendship
Not to be dramatic, but this might be the most important decision you make for improving your family’s quality of life… 

I know it was for the countless Present Players who define Present Play as “Life-Changing” or even “Life-Saving”. 

You have nothing to lose, so you might as well check it out.

I've already seen all of Avital's YouTube videos. Is there more to learn?
If you love The Parenting Junkie's YouTube Channel, you're going to L-O-V-E Present Play. Present Play content is the practical, actionable, HOW TO that takes your hand and gives you the tools to move from consumer to creator. When you join Present Play, you are getting performance coaching to create family bliss.  Here's the blueprint of what you will create:

HAVEN - Become a childhood designer. Set up your five crucial zones and transform your space into a play-inducing haven.

PLAY - Step into Play Guru status. Learn how to ignite play (and not sabotage it) and facilitate nourishing, immersive, independent play.

CULTURE - Breathe life into your family values, establish meaningful rituals and and create memorable experiences for your whole family.

FLOW - Be the designer of your time. Step into feeling productive but not busy, while creating flow that makes sense for the entire family.

VILLAGE - You're not alone. Parenting is a group sport. Discover innovative ways to build a village that works for your unique needs. 

MASTERY - Become well-versed in childhood development. Discover the fascinating workings of your child's brain and how best to meet their needs. 

SPACE - Embrace moderate minimalism. Head into the holiday season fully decluttered, as you create space to breathe within your home and hold on only to what serves you. 

VISION - As the CEO of your family, become crystal clear on your "mission" as a team. What are you trying to create? What's your ideal family life?

PRESENCE - Don't miss out while your children's childhood flies by. Master your focus so that you can choose where to place your precious attention (hint, not always on your phone). 

PEACE - Recurring conflict is a reality in every relationship. Learn how to manage those conflicts and alchemize them into deeper connection. 

POWER - Sometimes you may feel like life is happening to you. Reclaim the agency, authorship and creativity of someone who captains their own ship.

ENERGY - Parenting is a marathon, not a sprint. This month is your rest-and-grab-some-calories station so that you can keep going for the long haul. 
How much time do I need to invest in Present Play?
Present Play is very actionable and will give you doable tips for being present and enjoying your parenting. The time you spend will depend on your personal goals.

You can do any or all of the following:
5 - 10 minutes per week: Read the email
10 - 20 minutes per week: Watch one video
20 - 40 minutes per week: Put a new skill or tool into action
40 - 60 minutes per week: Interact with the community 
60 - 90 minutes per week: Catch an expert interview, read the PDF guide, or tune into a live session with Avital

Or, you can literally show up once a month to a live session, expert interview or by reaching out for support in the community. 
How is the content delivered? (I’m not tech savvy!) 
You will get instant access to the entire video library. Every week, you can expect to receive 1 - 2 emails, and every month, you will receive a new thematic PDF guide. Our community is based inside the members-only Facebook Group, including live sessions, which are recorded and added to the video library. It is recommended that you have good internet connection to access the new content each week, either on computer, tablet or smart phone.
 Will I get direct access to Avital?
Present Play is Avital’s inner circle. You will have more interaction with Avital via our private Facebook Group than anywhere else. This is also where she hosts LIVE Q&A sessions. Though Avital will not be available 24/7 (she takes a tech sabbath every Saturday) and cannot respond to every Facebook post, you'll soon discover that our like-minded community is so full of wisdom, sound advice and experience that you'll be able to find answers from our community any time you reach out. 
I have more questions, who do I ask?
You can use the chat box on this page to write in your questions. Be sure to leave your email address in case we need to get back to you. You can also email support@theparentingjunkie.com. We would love to help you out as quickly as we can. 
I'm worried I'll be overwhelmed with 'hours of content'. How much time will I need to invest to benefit?
You definitely do not need to watch hours of videos get amazing value from Present Play. Most video lessons range from 5 - 30 minutes long and are packed with actionable, mindset-blowing, aha moments that will get you taking action in no time. Pick and choose the topics that are most relevant and listen on the go since most do not demand your visual attention.

Remember - Avital's private clients pay $300 for just a single coaching session. This means you're getting a sweet deal even if you just use a fraction of what's offered inside Present Play. 
Is my home too small? 
No. In Present Play, we design solutions for homes with and without storage, with and without playrooms, with and without backyards. Even if you are currently traveling in an RV or up to your chin in moving boxes, you can use the tools found within Present Play. If you're moving, this is the perfect time to implement Present Play principles in your new home. All you need is a flexible, open mind and the belief that you can make it work.
I'm a new mom. Is this for me?
Yes! It’s amazing when you can start out early. Although some of the information won’t be relevant just yet, you’ll be learning from experienced parents and their parenting "mistakes" to prepare for what's to come. Pregnancy and maternity leave offer a tremendous opportunity to lay a solid foundation for peace, presence and play within your home.
I have school-aged kids. Is this for us?
Yes… and no. We approach the fundamentals of PLAY - and play is relevant for all ages of children (and adults)! The membership is designed with children age 0-9 in mind although there are several videos dedicated to the pre-teen age as well. If you have at least one child age 9 or under and a desire to prioritize flow and play, this is definitely for you. You're welcome to join even if your children don't fit within this age bracket because much of what we learn is applicable to our own lives as parents. 
Do you guarantee my kid will play independently?
Erm, in a word – no. How each child plays is as unique as their fingerprints. Temperament, environment, attachment, personality, health, developmental stage… all these factors and more contribute to the content, cadence and character of a child’s play. We believe every child is capable of benefiting from long stretches of flow and play. What that looks like for your child, how that looks in your home, and when you start to see growth is based on your unique situation and your open-minded commitment to practicing the skills and tools we offer. 
I'm super busy right now. Can I join later?
No. Doors open to Present Play only once a year! And that's by design. Present Play is a journey of growth, which is something that can't happen overnight. The good news is, it doesn't have to! Perhaps you're busy with a newborn, a move, or a career change and you don't feel you'll be able to 'keep up' right now. That's OK. In Present Play, there's no such thing as 'behind'. Take your time settling in and you'll soon find that the tools of Present Play are easily applied with immediate results. Shifting from chaos, clutter and conflict to peace, presence and play is within reach even for the busiest parents.
