Happy February!  It's Valentine's Day mid-month so why not make the whole month of February the month of love in your house?  It may just be a silly Hallmark holiday, but it's never a bad thing to remember to tell your sweeties that we love them beyond measure!  Show your love in new and unique ways.  Look them in the eye and give your undivided attention more than usual.  If you're proud of them, tell them why and how much.  Spread love wherever you go.  Spend this month telling your kids all of the things you love, all of the people you love and why you love them.  Be a model of loving kindness to all!! 


I'll start! I'm so grateful for you all and wish you a month filled with love.  I love you and thank you.


It's going to be a great February!


Wishing you balance,






coffee cup

Bring the kids

Let's start the new year off together and

kick up the rules a bit in your home!! 











Is no longer going to be a monthly event.  Watch for notifications of periodic gatherings.  The more I hear that you want it, the more likely it is to happen soon.


Let's keep in touch on this one and if you have any questions about raising your very complicated tweens and teens, don't hesitate to call or email me directly.



Speaking Engagements Available!

Speaking to Parents in Groups, Schools, and Church/Synagogue Communities is one of my greatest joys. It enables me to share what I'm most passionate about and to give more parents tools and inspiration to make their families even better.

Thank you for introducing me to your community!

Now booking speaking engagements for 2015!
