This program is for families that have young adults still living at home. Through 30+ online lessons and 40+ workbook activities, family members dig deep to explore their feelings about the young adult’s current situation, reset expectations, work to understand the reality of today’s economy and learn to communicate with openness, kindness and respect. The focus is on making life better now for all family members.
The Make the NOW Better Program for Families is a unique online program that helps families with young adults who still live at home, make the NOW better.

It's not easy being a parent, especially when your children are grown and are still living with you. You want to support them and have a good relationship, but you also don't want to enable bad behavior.

That's where my program comes in. This program is designed to help parents build a better relationship with their adult children while still holding them accountable. The program includes a series of online courses, downloadable resources, and individual printable workbooks.

Get started today and see the difference my program can make in your relationship with your adult child.

This course was created out of necessity and love. I can't tell you how many times just asking my daughter about her plans for the future caused a full week of crying and slamming doors in my home.

This program is designed by my daughter and me with the help of child therapists, Autism specialists, and tons of trial and error.

Michelle Arseneault is a woman of many talents. She has over 25 years of experience in designing online courses and is an expert in instructional design. In her spare time, she enjoys coaching people and teaching them new things.

Michelle also loves dancing and designing virtual fashion. She is a mother to her best friend and daughter, Sam, whom she adores more than anything else in the world.
