What You’ll Learn

Kids measure love primarily by our attentiveness to them, the moments when we truly connect. But in today’s world the pace of life, numerous activities for kids, moms and dads both working and the rise of technology, have made connecting with our kids challenging, if not nearly impossible.

Present Parenting is about how to utilize the everyday moments that already offer you the opportunity to connect with your kids, no preparation, no planning ahead. When you’re Present with your children, you send the clear and important message: “You matter to me,” and it can take as little as five minutes or less.

What Others are Saying

I’m not much of a reader. Unless a book catches my attention within the first few pages, I seldom read it all the way through. This book not only drew me in from the beginning but I finally had to make myself stop reading and go to bed. “Becoming a Present Parent” will be one of those life-changing books for parents and for anyone who wants to have an amazing relationship with [a] child. Well worth the read.

–  Cindy Winward, Mother of four grown children and mentor at Midwives College of Utah

I love the concepts and am putting them to work in our family, it seems that I read exactly what I need to hear for a challenge I’m having in that moment, and it’s giving me something to do that I’m totally enjoying. 

– Nathalie Bowman, Mom and Energy Healer

I like to call MaryAnn the Connected Mother Coach because in our busy world being home isn’t always being present and she can help you reclaim that presence.

– Liz King Bradley, Mother, Wife, Relationship and Recovery Coach
