Raising kids can be many things – it’s often complicated, confusing, stressful, and exhausting, but it is also filled with love, joy, meaning and growth. So much depends on a family’s unique circumstances, and yet there are many practical, science-based strategies for developing the qualities that enable a child to thrive throughout their lifetime. Where do parents start, given the abundance of parenting books, new research, and the rapid pace of modern life?

My specialty is distilling the best science and parenting advice into simple strategies any parent can use. I know what qualities are essential, which techniques work, and how to explain it all clearly to parents so they can do it. My mission is to give parents the confidence and tools to do the things that best prepare their kids for life. I’ve helped thousands of parents find ways to make parenting less stressful, more effective, and more rewarding. And I know it's never too late to make changes!
