Helping you parent with confidence and competence.

Online resources for talking to your kids about life's most challenging topics.

You want to be able to talk to your kids about anything. In order to do that, you need the courage to navigate challenging topics, too.

We believe there should be a place where you can gain the confidence and competence you need to have these conversations.

About us.

Hey, we’re Shane and Nikki. We’re both parents to four kids and love it (almost all the time). We’ve realized how desperate parents are to do the best by their kids. Sometimes we find ourselves in moments or situations that scare us or catch us off guard. Out of our desire to see parents flourish we created helpful, practical, and shame-free courses to prepare you for some of the most challenging moments parenting can throw your way.
