Parent PEP Talk (Parents are Exceptional People)

Donation protected

Parents are exceptional people who are on a journey with their child that has no instruction book. Since every child is unique, no one else has ever parented your child. Though your parenting experience is your own, there are universal concepts and tools that can help enrich every parent’s relationship with their child.

My passion is working with parents to build robust tool kits that help them have a more joyful, less stressful relationship with their children. Parenting has always been challenging, and the stresses of raising self-aware, confident, compassionate, autonomous children/emerging adults during a global pandemic have created unprecedented struggles for parents. 

I am raising money to cover the cost of making a professionally produced, multi-camera, highly impactful video.  Parents are Exceptional People Talk (PEP Talk) : The Seven-Win MindsetPurpose Parenting Website  

The video will be filled with groundbreaking tools, research-based concepts, inspiring deep wisdom that comes from my 40+ years of working with children of all ages in classrooms and informal indoor/outdoor settings, rigorously keeping current on the latest parenting research, and lessons learned from raising my two sons.


* Think power struggles are inevitable? Watch this video!
* Believe sibling rivalry is a necessary part of childhood? Watch this video!
* Think eye-rolling and lying are teen rites of passage? Watch this video!
* Believe parenting must be more stressful than joyful? Watch this video!

The money raised will go to the State Theatre in Ithaca, NY where I will film the video and work with the State Theatre's team in post production. Funds donated will help make this video possible. As a donor, you will know you are part of improving the lives of children and families by giving parents compassionate, practical, relation-based tools and guidance.

When parents watch the video they will gain keen insights into how to build an amazing, close, honest, fun, and inspiring relationship with their child(ren).

If you've ever had a conversation with me about relating to children that moved or inspired you, I would really appreciate it if you could donate to this video project and share the link with people in your communities. I'm asking for contributions of $5-$25 to make this dream a reality.

Everyone who contributes will have the opportunity to have one FREE parenting skills session or gift a session to someone in your life. My parent coaching sessions are fun, informative, transformational, down-to-earth,  and effective.
