What Inspired Me to Create
Parenting by Design . . .

I'm a mom that has been where you are right now -- feeling overwhelmed, guilty and frustrated. 

No one trains us for the most difficult job in life: being a parent. I personally understand the struggle of having a difficult childhood, complicated by unhealthy parenting styles growing up. 

As a Certified Parent Educator with a Masters of Art in Teaching from Brown University, I have the privilege working with a lot of children and families.

 

My professional experience, combined with being a mom and an elite athlete, helped me realize each of us needs personalized help. We need coaching from a variety of specialities to conquer our challenges. 

This inspired me to create Parenting by Design. Based on your unique needs, we design customized training by experts using proven research. 

Our time as parents is limited but our impact lasts a lifetime. I'm excited to help you. Let's get started!

With much love,
Laine
