About Me

Parenting is messy.

I’m on a mission to help parents see that the goal isn’t to clean it up, but to learn new practices and some handy tricks while embracing and even ENJOYING the mayhem.

If you want to make sense of the messiness, find answers and camaraderie in the imperfect and yes, humbling journey of parenting, you’ve come to the right place.

In the beginning…

My first few years as a mother were guided by instinct. Parenting felt natural and easy.

When my second son was born I hit a wall with parenting-by-instinct. I’d been thrown into a new sport with no knowledge of the game. I realized, the hard way, that I needed to train and workout if I was going to play!

I got back on the field in 2002 when I discovered Positive Discipline.

My relationship with my son was forever changed. Here I had discovered a roadmap for parenting that came with its own toolkit. I felt INSPIRED to share it with everyone I knew.

My life’s work is dedicated to helping you enjoy the precious time you have with your family.

The years go quickly. Wouldn’t you love to quiet your inner critic and start loving instead? Our children need our love, not perfection.
