  • DIRECT ACCESS to Experts Through Live Q&A Calls
  • PRIVATE ACCESS to Member-Only Facebook Group
  • And So Much More!

It's ironic, isn't it?

Before we have kids, we don't learn about parenting.

And after we have kids, who has the time?

Technically, we're doing the hardest job on the planet - raising human beings - with little or no prior training, some hearsay knowledge and a lot of 'gut feeling'!

Can you imagine a doctor or a plumber doing their job this way?

Is it any wonder so many parents feel so overwhelmed and frustrated so often, in spite of having the best intentions in our hearts?

It's time to change this!

So we built a support community for you like no other!

Because, when you have the best support for yourself, you can give the best support to your kids! 

Introducing...
The AFineParent Academy 

The AFineParent Academy is a Positive Parenting community designed specifically to provide THREE key elements of support for dedicated, growth-minded parents like you:

#1 
Powerful Tools & Insights 

We've collected the most effective parenting tools and insights from 68 popular parenting and personal development books into quick hour-long masterclasses for you to watch while you do your chores! Learning and growing as a parent couldn't be easier than this!

#2 
Friendly Community

You get to be part of a private Facebook group of like-minded committed parents just like you. No matter where you are in your parenting journey and what you are going through, we get you and we've got your backThis is a place you will fit right in.

#3 
Expert Support
 

You get ongoing support from knowledgeable experts through our weekly live Q&A calls. With decades of experience working with parents and kids, our wide array of experts are uniquely positioned to help you become "unstuck" no matter your situation or your kids ages

Confident Parenting Is a Learned Skill, Not an Innate Talent

We don't expect our kids to automatically know how to ride a bike, read a book or even tie their shoelaces on their own... 

Why then do we expect ourselves to automatically know all about raising tiny little human beings into happy, compassionate, successful adults, without any training or support?

If you're struggling with parenting, it's not because you're a bad parent.

If you feel overwhelmed, it's not because you're incapable.

If you feel like you're failing your kids, it does not mean you're a failure! 

It just means it's time to pick up some new skills and better support!

And, we've got you covered.

Great Parents are Made, Not Born!

You can be the calm, confident, happy and supportive parent you always wanted to be.

You can create a family where kids cooperate because they want to and not because they're afraid of threats and punishment. 

You can weather the storms of everyday living with your toddlers, preschoolers, little kids, tweens and eventually even teens with respect, kindness and dignity. 

You can raise happy, well-adjusted and successful adults.

All you need are the right tools and the right support, and we've put it together for you!

Beyond Masterclasses:
Ask Our Experts All of YOUR Questions!

We don't just want to give you these powerful, life-altering masterclasses... We want to support you every step of the way in the course of your everyday parenting.

So, 3-4 times a month we bring in experts to answer your questions and help you get unstuck.

You can attend as many calls as you want!

Currently, we have 3 types of calls each month -

1: Ask the Expert Call with Julie King

Once a month, we host an open Q&A call where you can ask questions about any challenge you are facing.


Our expert for this call, Julie King, has been educating and supporting parents since 1995 and has conducted countless workshops based on her bestselling books How To Talk So LITTLE Kids Will Listen and How To Talk When Kids Won't Listen, as well as the classic predecessor How To Talk So Kids Will Listen, And Listen So Kids Will Talk, and is uniquely positioned to answer any questions you have! 

2: Spotlight Session

In these calls we focus on a different "Spotlight" topic for each call and bring in the leading expert on the topic for the call. And, you can ask them any question you have. 


Here is a sample of some of our past Spotlight Session calls to give you an idea of what to expect.

Can You Imagine Having This Massive Searchable Knowledge Base of Relevant Parenting Wisdom At Your Finger Tips?

They Say It Takes a Village to Raise a Child...

Day-to-day parenting is HARD.

Below are just a few situations reported by the parents in our community – situations you may relate to:

My 8-month-old sleeps poorly and wakes me up 3 or 4 times every night. Nothing I've tried to get her to sleep through the night is working. I'm getting so tired and frustrated. I find myself so angry and resentful of her, and I hate that. 

Our 4-year-old is suddenly showing a lot of aggressive behavior. He tries to bite us, scratch us or kick us when he doesn't get his way. I try my best to stay calm, but eventually I just lose it and yell at him.

My 8-year-old and 6-year-old keep bickering, teasing each other and fighting all day long. Their fighting is a big trigger for me, and it stresses me out. I don't know how to stop it.

My kids are 11, 9, 5 and 3. I'm met with a lot of negative attitude when I remind them to do their chores or schoolwork. They are making it harder for me by fighting back when I ask them to do their part. I'm so exhausted and upset.

My 13-year-old is dead set on having Snapchat. To the point that every conversation ends with how unfair I am that I won't let her have it, how awful I am as a parent and how uncool she is. It's driving my husband and I nuts.

The #1 Mistake Parents Make in These Situations Is...

Believing that they need to somehow magically have all the answers!

The #2 mistake? 

Believing Google has all the answers.

(Try asking Google how to handle any of these!)

And the #3 mistake?

Believing their situation is entirely unique, and no one will understand or have the answers.

Here's the simple truth.

You don't need to have all the answers.

And no matter how unique your situation is, there is someone out there who has faced something similar and has valuable wisdom to share.

Google is awesome for a lot of things, but not the best help in these tricky parenting situations.

You know what IS helpful?

Other parents in the trenches of everyday parenting just like you.

Experts who dedicate their lives to studying these situations, understanding why they occur and helping parents resolve them.   

And we can connect you with them!

Get the support you deserve to become the parent you want to be!

Why would you want to do it alone when you can have so much support on your side?

It's Time to Give Yourself The Help You Deserve!
Look at What Our Current Members Are Saying...

Being  a member in the Academy has been life changing for me. Especially during this Covid upheaval. I have boys 7 & 9 years old and I chose to school them virtually rather than in person.  I decided to invest time into this platform to save my sanity. It has been the best purchase I have made as a parent this year. My whole family is benefiting from my investment. 

- Laura P. (via Email)

I cannot express how grateful I am to you for these masterclasses. Just the few I have watched so far have helped my family so much. I knew what I didn't want to do anymore as a parent and was struggling with what to do instead. These have been spot on for who I want to be as a parent.

- Jen C. (via Facebook) 

Thank you for creating this community. It's like I've arrived in a village and known -this- is where I belong. 😊

- Catherine K. (via Facebook) 

So grateful for your work. It’s been life saving for us. We have been sheltering in place since March b/c my son is high risk. We also have a 1 year old. Been stuck at home since March just the four of us - mom, dad, preschooler, baby. 

The classes and calls you have hosted have completely changed us and is helping us SOOOOO much. I can’t even relay. We are barely yelling anymore. And we are finding our way on this positive parenting path. Very grateful for you and your work. Thank you. Been telling literally all of my parent friends about you.

- Sarah P. (via Chat during a Q&A Call) 

I love the direct access to parenting experts. So important! Also the feeling of belonging to a group that understands me and supports me because they are in it with me too, makes me feel stronger.

Thank you for creating this platform. It is helping me so much to become a better parent for my son. He’s my everything! You are providing easy and direct access to the best parenting tools and education possible, I’m forever grateful.

Everything Else is Icing on the Cake!

It all boils down to this...

Would you rather sleep easy knowing you have access to the best parenting help on the planet?

So they WILL test boundaries. And push limits. And break rules. 

You can let this drive you up a wall.

Or, you can learn to join them in their journey, and support them in becoming amazing, confident, well-adjusted human beings.

Even when things go boom.

Let us show you how!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long are the masterclasses and the Q&A calls?

All our masterclass and Q&A calls are typically around 60 minutes long.

The masterclasses captures the best ideas from the book that inspired it. In many cases, they are organized into smaller sections of 20-30 minutes each so you can consume them more easily.

The Q&A calls are 60-minutes but you can drop in and out at any time if it overlaps with other engagements.

What age group of kids is the Academy targeted for?

Most of the ideas we cover – positive discipline, habits, values, life skills, findings of latest research etc. – apply to most kids in the birth - 13 years age bracket. That said, some of the ways to implement these ideas differ for different age groups, and we cover those with specific examples within the masterclasses and calls.  So for instance, if we're talking about chores and teaching kids how to take responsibility, our expert will have specific examples for you for each of the different age groups.

Who are these experts?

We are extremely picky about the experts we invite and vet them exhaustively. Consequently, all our experts are highly respected in their fields, and have published books, some of which are international bestsellers. Most of them are also practicing clinicians, psychologists, professors and counselors with years (if not decades) of experience working with parents and/or kids. And all of them are also parents, so they know both professionally and personally what it takes to turn all that knowledge into practical strategies that busy parents can put to use right away!

If you are looking for the most practical, research-backed, well-organized information that can help your whole family thrive, you'll be hard-pressed to find anything like this anywhere else.

What format are the masterclasses and Q&A calls in?

All masterclasses are pre-recorded.

The Q&A calls are live, but we will also record them.


We provide the recordings (for both the masterclasses and the Q&A calls) in 3 different formats -- streaming video, downloadable audio, and either a printable transcript or a summary -- so you can match it to your learning style (and your mood at any given time 🙂)!


How do I access everything in the Academy?

All you need to access the Academy is a Smart device such as a phone, touchpad or computer, and Internet access!


When you join the AFineParent Academy, you will receive an email with a link to the member area along with your username and password. Use these to login and you're all set to access everything in the Academy.

How do I join the community and the Q&A calls?

When you join the AFineParent Academy, you will receive the details to join our private Facebook community group for just the Academy members.


And on the 1st of each month, you will receive an email with a list of all the calls we have scheduled for the month. You can attend as many of these as you want! All our calls happen via Zoom and are normally scheduled for Thursdays at noon Central Time. And if you can't attend them live, we will have the recordings up in the Academy member area within 2-3 days of the call.

Meet Your Host

Hi, My name is Sumitha, and I am a regular parent like most of you.


Before I had my daughter, I honestly didn't give much thought to parenting. After all, parents have done this for ages... how hard can it be, right? 


Oh, how naive I was!

My daughter challenges me every step of the way. She is my utmost joy one minute and a source of abject exasperation the next. Raising her has made me come face to face with the depth of my character and the shallowness of it. I revel in my strengths one moment, and the next, I'm moved to tears by my weaknesses.

In 2013 I started AFineParent.Com to make sense of it all.

Since then, I've been fortunate to connect with a lot of experts who have dedicated their lives to studying different sub-topics in parenting, self-growth and psychology.

In 2017 I started hosting the annual Positive Parenting Conference to bring those experts to you.

And in 2020, we're launched the AFineParent Academy to take this to the next level – connect you with these experts and each other directly so you can see real transformations in your families just as I have in mine.

I know you’ll find as much value in joining the Academy as we do in bringing it to you!
