the great juggling act
BALANCINg life AS A PARENT

Based on 30 years of coaching families worldwide, and 8 years of research into the science of human development, audiences learn practical ways to be there for their kids, without sacrificing self care.

Packed with doable strategies including how much time kids need to feel loved and secure (Hint: less than you think), clever ways to nurture your marriage while raising kids, tips to organize and automate household logistics to lighten your load, and how to release the mom-and dad guilt for working and self-care.
