What every parent
(and parent-to-be)
needs to know.

The conversations are coming. Confidently navigate them.

Ashley has culled 20 years worth of tips and experience into the top 5 (and most surprising!) parenting techniques you can implement now.

Confidently navigate the conversations.
Even when you're uncomfortable

With 20 years experience in spiritual development work, here is what I wish every parent (and parent-to-be) knew:

The messages you send your children now will influence them for a lifetime

Messages of openness and love can teach self confidence and self assurance, equipping kids to make healthy decisions throughout their lives. Messages of criticism and shame can teach kids to hide - even from themselves - often resulting in disconnection.

What I know without a doubt to be true is this: messages about sexuality have an unbelievably outweighed impact on children's lives that reach far into adulthood.

Parents have such an important role in their children's sexuality education, but so many are unequipped.

Fear of what to say and when to say it get in the way. You can be a wealth of resources and support for your children (children-to-be). The sooner YOU feel confident and equipped, the better the conversations will be. Giving you peace of mind that your children will make healthy decisions throughout their lifetimes.

Hear me that it is possible to move past what is holding you back and it is possible get the peace of mind that your kids truly are going to be okay.

With just a few, simple techniques you can create a loving and affirming space.

From anxious to awesome

When learning to talk to your kids about important topics: start now.
Let's face it. We weren't taught how to talk to our kids easily and effectively talk about tricky topics with our kids. Yet these are some of the most precious and pressing conversations you'll ever have. Don't leave them to chance.

I use the technique you gave  All. The. Time. Not just answering difficult questions about sexuality, but any question my kids have (and they are endless). This was a life saver.

I was lucky enough to have you share one of these tips with me when my (now teenager) was young. It was a game changer. I can't tell you how many people I have shared this with. I am so grateful I learned this when I did.
