Parenting is the toughest job we ever loved. But, as my kids grew into teenagers, I was shocked at how many problems and how much pressure was created by things we had no experience with.
Every choice in their teen and young adult years was magnified, for the good and the bad. Their entire lives were accelerated and they faced huge challenges from technology, social media, peer pressure, the push to excel, and the speed of life. We found that the tools and coping strategies we had were not enough for today’s world.
When my child was in crisis, I went hunting for information, tools, and techniques that could provide relief and really help my kids (and us)! I was surprised at how hard it was to find what we needed and knew we weren’t alone in our search. So along with my business partner we created Mighty Parenting.
Mighty Parenting started as a podcast, grew into a community and now we're bringing more resources to parents everywhere. It has become the place for parents to get information, support, and resources they need to raise happy, successful, emotionally healthy kids in the 21st century.
