Parents, do you find yourself wishing:

• Your folks would respect your rules about screen time or sugary snacks?

• Your parents/ in-laws would stop offering “helpful” suggestions?

​​​​​​​• Your folks would try to understand about your parenting preferences?

​​​​​​​• Grandparents would offer to help more (or less?)

Grandparents, do you wish:

• You had more support raising or caring for your grandchildren?

• Your adult kids would listen to your advice without being defensive?

• Your son/ daughter would value your experience and wisdom?

• Your adult kids included you more in their lives?

Wow, Susan Stiffelman, you have really outdone yourself with this years speakers! I could have cried when I want through the speakers and found all of my most favorite parenting coaches! Thank you!

Your telesummits have been life-changing for me! Thank you for sharing so generously?

…from the talks I listened to I managed to glean 43 pages of notes!! (Felt like being back at school ?!) Some of the talks literally blew my mind while others had me in tears…

WOW!! I’ve participated in *many* different parenting summits, but this is truly the best. Thank you so very much…I am feeling more uplifted now, and I can’t wait to keep watching and finding new inspiration from you and all of the other experts who are sharing their wisdom. 💗 Sarah S

This series was so awesome!  You had some truly amazing guests and my husband and I got SOOO much out of it!  I feel like I have some more tools in my parenting tool box for my 17, 15 and 10 year old:)

Thank you so much for organizing this summit!! Wow, I am experiencing so much clarity, understanding and joy!!

Susan, I just want you to know that you are literally saving my relationship with my 14 year old son… It is life changing! I always felt there was a better way and now have the tools to make it happen. You are empowering us as parents which will in turn empower our kids to come from a place of love instead of fear.

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing this summit. I hope many people will see this and I shared this summit with the moms of my kid’s whole class!
