I’m the mother of three and a parent educator. I’ve been a parent educator working with parents of newborns, teens and everything in between. I’ve worked with parents from the community, court-ordered parents and incarcerated parents. I’ve taught child development theory to child care providers and to college students. As the mother of three, I’ve been parenting for more than 53 combined years. All that means that I’ve picked up a few parenting tips along the way.
