About Parental Wisdom®

A few years after our children Michael and Noelle were born, the Parental Wisdom® concept was founded.

Parental Wisdom® created a vehicle that offers parents the tools not just to become a better parent, but to become the expert in knowing their own children best.

Knowledge is power - but the key is matching the right knowledge to the right child.

It all started in 1989, I had a nineteen month old boy and was 13 months pregnant (perhaps a slight exaggeration) with my second child. In the world of parenting, I had no idea what I was doing.

BC (before children) I felt pretty confident that I could learn and do anything. But this new experience was confusing even though I was the second eldest in a family of six kids and often watched over my younger brothers and sisters.

What I found were a few challenges with this method of parent problem solving:

1. When I read the books, I often disagreed with the experts

2. When I asked family and friends, I never 100% agreed with them either. That creates a different relationship challenge when you ask a question and then don't take someone's advice

3. The saying goes, little kids, little problems...big kids, bigger problems. What would the future look like? And what would I do if my child did something I didn't want to share? Then where would I go for answers?

Then it dawned on me that if we really believe our children are unique how could 'one size fit all' advice work?

Think about it, each family is different in their values, beliefs, lifestyle...so how could there be a single right way to parent? And add greater challenges with external media and marketing influences.

Parental Wisdom® is a proprietary database comprised of questions and answers reflecting multiple opinions from a pool of professional and sometimes practical advisors. The multiplicity of opinions approach is an intellectual property protected by U.S. Patents 6,193,518 & 6,482,012.

In a nutshell,Parental Wisdom®was created because kids don't come with manuals®
I look forward to our ongoing conversation.
