Hi, I'm Laurie! As a Parent Educator,
I Nurture Happy Families!
For over 25 years, I have taught Parent Workshops to families within the Poway Unified School District and San Diego Unified School District. Nothing gives me greater joy than to create peace and harmony between parents and kids. Through my Workshops, parents realize:
As a new Mother, I thought I had the skills to raise two happy, well-behaved daughters, but I found myself ill-prepared to be the ideal parent. That started my quest to transform my own parenting skills and seek knowledge of what makes children behave the way they do. Besides a degree in Music Therapy, my education includes certification in Dr. Jane Nelsen’s “Positive Discipline Parent Educator Facilitator Training” and “Positive Discipline in the Classroom Training”. I was also trained by H. Stephen Glenn in the “Developing Capable Leadership” program and by Dr. Michael Popkin, Ph.D in the “Facilitating Active Parenting of Teens” program. Additionally, I have been educated and certified in many other parenting coursework, methodologies, and philosophies.
Watching parents learn from one another, laughing together at their mutual mistakes, realizing that there is hope, and finding relief from their daily stress with updated developmental, societal knowledge is a phenomenal experience! This is my life’s work and I want to share it with you. Peace begins at home – and yes, if I can do it, you can too.
