Our Good Morning Parents Journey!
America has experienced an increase in drug overdoses, mass shootings, incarceration rates, political wars and racial tension. There are no qualifications or mandatory requirements to become a parent. Parents worry more today about their children’s future now more than ever.
As parents we can’t solely depend on large systems (schools, government, social services, etc.) to raise our children. It starts at home! It’s up to us make a difference in our homes, communities and in the world. Together we can create happier, healthier and financially thriving families for generations.
Our resources are a culmination of my personal and experiential knowledge as a parent of 3 and an Elementary School Teacher. My professional and educational experience as a Correctional Officer, Education Supervisor, Parenting Coordinator, and the first Family Reunification Leader in a federal prison has highlighted the need to support the role of parents.
We have translated research-based findings into fun and informative parenting strategies. Our resources and services are derived from the 6 Pillars of Parenting (Communication, Love, Education, Financial Literacy, Family Fun and Discipline) which transcends through generations.
We are excited to share our years of success with hospitals, schools, day care centers, community organizations and in correctional facilities.
