Years ago, as new parents, we looked around at the common
cultural concepts of "good parenting," and were not pleased with much of
what we saw. We set about to find for ourselves a better way. Through
the years we have developed a unique parenting paradigm that works because
parents feel empowered with principles and children feel honored and valued.
These ingredients create an environment in which the family can live together
After our children left home,
we became committed to help other
families catch the vision of principle-centered parenting. For the past 20
years we have presented seminars and workshops.
We have written an
award-winning book, Living Joyfully with Children. In addition, we write
magazine articles and mentor families.
Primary to all of our presentations is the assumption that children deserve
a childhood in which they can live safely, not only physically, but also
mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. And further, that childhood be
designed and maintained as a place for the child to be protected, cherished,
and especially, to be joyful.
We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and have two children and three grandchildren.
