Stop getting stuck in the cycle of guesswork, guilt, and self doubt; start living with more intention

I had 2 big questions…

How to raise successful kids who were prepared for the future, and how to do that when I didn’t know how to myself!

It was 2016. My husband and I had already spent four years after being crushed by the Recession trying to survive while he was underemployed. We were hit with the stark reality that more education wouldn’t lead to a better job. Depressed and confused, I wanted to understand how we got so far off course when we had done everything “right” and had checked all the boxes to hit all the “right” milestones.

Then I thought about these four kids that I wanted to raise with the ability to be resilient, resourceful, and resolute — and how ill-equipped I felt to do so — I realized I didn’t have examples or mentors to model for me what that looked like.

On top of all that is the day-to-day struggles of family life that was weighing me down. I didn’t want to repeat generational, societal, and physiological patterns that were keeping me feeling inadequate and broken.

I was watching the Olympics that year and was considering the impact of parents and mentors on those kids who were competing on such a platform. Inspired by the success of these young people, I got to thinking about the level of dedication they must have modeled for them somehow.

This impossible task of changing our cultural legacy to raise successful kids was weighing me down until I had a crazy idea…

I could interview successful parents and adult kids who had “arrived” at their dreams.

I started a massive project to research what it meant to have a successful family culture. I knew that there had to be something in the patterns and modeled behavior of successful families that I didn’t know about. Using the skills I gained studying psychology and lifespan development for my degree in Health Promotion, I wanted to understand what it took to guide children by cultivating an environment for success.

I read lots of books, listened to podcasts, interviewed experts, and conducted my own experiments of trial and error to understand these patterns and behaviors. Since culture seems to be understood better from the perspective of corporate culture, I studied successful business and organizational cultures, too.

Culture is that thing that is infused into everything. It informs society’s subconscious behaviors. To paraphrase historian Bob Bain, culture is the normalized implicit and explicit ideas, beliefs, and practices that are acquired, created, or learned collectively as members of a group cope with human challenge. 

These normalized behaviors are so ingrained they are passed on beneath your awareness. Unfortunately, these invisible adaptations lurking beneath your awareness can often lead to destructive coping mechanisms for expired and outdated problems. So, I had to dive deeper to see what was really driving my life.

A step-by-step process for breaking the cycles of invisible scripts; cultivating resilient family practices and building a legacy

I used my Meta Family Method — which helps you build a rock solid family culture — to navigate serious roadblocks and detours in our life.

Breaking cycles is not easy, but we are all on this journey together. Our shared experiences strengthen us, grow our confidence, and create a sure foundation making us better capable of traversing this family life. 

We have clarity and confidence in our family’s identity and shared values.

We are able to break away from the cluttered highways of parenting guesswork to design our own handbook of instructions for a resilient family culture. 

The core values we built have provided a barrier for our family while enduring deeply difficult challenges — not the least being the global pandemic. 

Our family works together in a safe environment to meet each others’ needs. Behavioral issues are rare and met with compassion and attunement. We hold space for each other as we confront those triggering experiences that are an inevitable part of growing up and healing. We work as a team to carry the burdens and the mental load of family life (yes, even our eight-year-old has a healthy share).

We are cultivating the kind of environment where we have structure and boundaries but also freedom to challenge each other and speak our minds. Everyone in our family has a voice, and we confront our judgments and biases together to make sure everyone feels understood.

How does that sound?

When you just want a happy, thriving family…

You Practice "Gentle" Parenting

But it isn’t what your grew up with so you doubt yourself and your own parents question your leadership and the development of your children!

Navigating Change + Transitions

 Challenging + confusing to make the “right” choices every time you hit a roadblock or fork in the road or have a question about how to raise successful kids who won’t hate their parents!

Confusing Roles + Losing control

Overwhelmed by the mental load of managing a home when it feels like you’re doing everything yourself; and it feels like your moody teen (or toddler) takes the wheel every time they have a crisis!

You've Become a Martyr

Giving up your own dreams and goals for your family’s success and home management + enduring the daily struggles of deteriorating mental + physical health!

If you want clarity, confidence, hope, and freedom

I can help you get there without parenting gimmicks, repeating old patterns, or guessing your way through

If you want…

A Resilient Family Culture

Think of this journey like a family road trip where you’re headed to your dream destination. For me, that’s the beach, lounging in a rocking chair on the screened-in porch of my grandparents’ old cottage on Lake Huron! It is a long drive to get there, and takes a lot of preparation and planning.

It’s easy to consider all the preparation and maintenance that goes into an actual road trip, but for some reason most people don’t put as much thought into this family life road trip.

When you started this journey with the best of intentions, you likely imagined it would be challenging, but then it got way more challenging than you ever expected. Roadblocks, detours, breakdowns, and repairs…only to repeat the same patterns. But, everyone always says, “that’s just the way it is,” so you’re expected to go along with it.

The good news is many of the road trip hiccups you’re encountering can be solved by addressing the invisible scripts messing with your GPS and creating all kinds of confusion, frustration, and exhaustion.

These unspoken rules and contracts are biological coping mechanisms causing you to forget to listen to your inner voice — your meta voice — the one that will always guide you true. That voice gets lost in the fog of social expectations and you lose sight of who you are because you’re trying to either fit in, or fight back. Neither are truly going to lead to long-term joy, growth, and resilience.

How do I know for sure

THAT YOU CAN ROCK THIS FAMILY LIFE Guilt Free WITHOUT THE GUESSWORK AND SHAME OF MESSING UP YOUR KIDS FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES, AND GETTING LOST IN ALL THE WELL-MEANING ADVICE OF PARENTS, FRIENDS, + INFLUENCERS?

Hey! I’m Jodi Chaffee

The Founder of The Family Culture Movement

Designing your unique family culture is all about creating a specific experience you want your family to be known for that reflect your true values and character without manipulative parenting tactics, guesswork, or going along with what everyone else seems to be doing.

I’ve spent the last seven years decoding the invisible scripts in the culture families fall into that are creating all kinds of generational damage in their wake. But navigating your family culture away from that wreckage feels scary when the dysfunction has become the norm! 

I help imperfect parents (and individuals) trapped in Invisible Scripts Syndrome become powerful cycle-breakers who destroy their limiting beliefs using my unique framework called The Meta Family Method – a psychology-driven approach to confronting your assumptions about life and family, deconstructing your generational patterns, and reframing a new paradigm of resilience to help you and your family reach your full potential.

Basically, I help you decode your cultural legacies and design a new framework for success that gets rid of the guesswork and  self doubt, and empowers you to write your own travel guide for navigating your family culture with confidence!
