Who the Heck is Dayna Abraham?

Take it from me...

Hi, I’m Dayna Abraham, author of the bestselling books Superkids Activity Guide and Sensory Processing 101. I’m also the founder of the parenting blog Lemon Lime Adventures, which gets over 3 million visitors a year.

I spent over 13 years as a teacher. And for the past 5 years, I’ve helped over 200,000+ parents, teachers, therapists, and pediatricians get control of their child’s most difficult behaviors using the Calm the Chaos framework.

I didn't magically get here by chance. I spent the first 7 years of parenting feeling like an absolute failure despite my background in education. I read every book I could find, spent thousands on therapists and advocates and tried every calm-down tool on the planet. 

Nothing worked at first. And then I tried a radically "out of the box" approach and things started to change. 

Calm The Chaos Framework Stories

They Did It.
So Can you.

Moms share how they went from struggling to thriving with their kids

HER SON WENT FROM VIOLENT MELTDOWNS EVERY DAY TO CALMING HER DOWN... IN JUST A WEEK AND A HALF!

Jess was at rock bottom after pediatricians and teachers blamed her son's hitting, kicking, and meltdowns on her parenting skills.

She implemented a simple connection plan which gave her son the skills to actually calm HER down.

Now she spends her time playing Gaelic football with her children and is pursuing her own dreams, which she had forgotten about…

EVERYTHING WAS A CONSTANT BATTLE: ONE SMALL STEP CHANGED EVERYTHING...

Anna was sent to parenting course after parenting course and yet… nothing worked. Outbursts, defiant and oppositional behavior, ignoring, refusing to do what they asked at home… Everything was a constant battle. Her family was about to fall apart and break.

By just making a few small changes, her family started to take a turn for the better.

Now, she knows how to work with her son and EXACTLY what to do one step at a time…

STRESSED. OVERWHELMED. EMOTIONALLY WRECKED. “WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?” Or FROM EMOTIONAL WRECK TO IN CONTROL & CONNECTED

Amy’s relationship with her husband, her kids and herself was a wreck. She was overwhelmed with her never-ending lists of things to do. She couldn’t even leave the house without everything falling apart. She was stressed and stuck in paralysis. She would search aimlessly for hours only to be left with more overwhelm.

Once she stopped aiming for perfection, her days started getting better.

Now, there is still chaos but now, she has a plan…

DOCTORS SAID HER AUTISTIC SON WOULD NEVER COMMUNICATE… HE PROVED THEM WRONG

Kaylene was told by doctors her son would never learn to communicate, manage his emotions or live on his own. Every day was walking on eggshells in fear he would hurt a sibling. With 5 kids in the home, Kaylene blamed herself and tried “all the things” on Pinterest and blog posts only to have them fail miserably.

It wasn’t until she started to focus on connection by getting down on her son’s level and accepting him for who he was. She realized neither her son nor her parenting was the problem.

Once they started connecting… his communication blossomed into something far beyond just words…

DESPITE BEING A TEACHER, SHE COULDN’T HELP HER SON’S AFTERSCHOOL MELTDOWNS

Despite being an educator, Kaitlyn couldn’t help her son through his debilitating anxiety and after school meltdowns that would last over an hour. She was exhausted and felt completely isolated. At school her son was a rockstar but at home it was a different story and none of the “normal tools” worked.

She discovered that she could start to see her son’s behaviors like a penny and everything started to change.

And now, her son has replaced meltdowns with family huddles…

Her family went from broken and falling apart to working together to solve problems lovingly in less than 3 months...

Alice wasn’t sure where her family was headed, but she knew it wasn’t pretty. Her and her husband were barely talking and when they did…They couldn’t agree on anything. She was ready to give up. She took one last shot at a framework that focused on compassion and understanding.

Within three short months…She and her husband now work alongside each other as a team,
They spend time laughing and cooking together,

And best of all…Their family now spends time playing games together, cuddling on the coach, and talking out their struggles with compassion and understanding.

She went from being afraid to take a shower to being able to leave her kids at home alone together

When both parents work full-time, it’s important to be able to leave your kids alone every now and then. But Emily wasn’t even confident she could take a shower without a fight breaking out in her living room. 

They’d been through counseling for the entire family—individually, together, and in all kinds of other configurations. Nothing seemed to help. The aggressive, violent outbursts were just getting worse and worse. 

Over the course of the CTC program, Emily discovered that not only could she help her kids foster a great relationship with each other, but she could develop a better relationship with herself, too. 

Her family went from hitting, kicking, scratching, and screaming matches to living room dance parties and quiet snuggles on the couch.

A year ago, Jennifer was being called into school almost on a daily basis. Her son had been suspended from kindergarten so many times he was on the verge of being EXPELLED... and it’s not like it stopped at home. The defiant screaming fits felt like they stretched across days. The aggressive kicking, hitting, and scratching made it hard to even get close to him.

His aggressive and defiant behaviors were causing so much stress it was overflowing into every part of Jennifer’s life.

Now they can play games, have pop-up dance parties in the living room, or just snuggle, as a family.

Everyone said they couldn’t help. Until Amber reached out to Dayna.

Before the Calm The Chaos program, Amber was barely surviving. 

Her son Orion would be fine at school, but the moment he got home he would explode. it was more than she could bear. Covered in bites and bruises, looking for help everywhere she could, and hearing over and over again “we can’t help you” and “we’ve never seen this before.”

Hurt, scared, and alone, Amber felt like a total failure... She knew she needed to change something, and quick.

Then, on a late-night internet crawl, Amber found a five-minute clip of The Iceberg Theory, and started the process of turning her family life around.

They used to only communicate by arguing. Now, they’re a loving team that does everything together.

Tamara’s relationship with Hannah used to be wonderful. For the first five or six years, she loved parenting. But then everything changed. 

Slowly, they drifted apart.

Eventually, it got so bad that it spilled out into every aspect of their life. The fighting, the shouting… she was doing things she’d told herself she’d never do.  Tamara realized this wasn’t the kind of mom she wanted to be. 

Then, she found Calm The Chaos. And within the first week, things started to turn around. Now, they do everything together.
