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'!

It’s no wonder we feel so overwhelmed and frustrated so often, in spite of having the best intentions in our hearts.

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 tie their shoelaces on their own...

Why then do we expect ourselves to automatically know all about raising tiny little human beings to be 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!

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

What if there was ONE place you could go for trusted parenting information from multiple vetted experts?

What if there was ONE place where you could ask proven parenting professionals questions specific to your situation and get answers?

What if there was ONE place where you could connect with other like-minded parents just like you, who understand what you are going through and are happy to share helpful strategies and solutions that have worked for them?

Thankfully there IS such a place!

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

Day-to-day parenting is HARD.

If you’re like the 1,000s of parents in our community, you want to be the best parent you can be, but you could use some help and you don't know where to start.

You need somewhere to go to get answers to your challenging parenting situations, and understand why your sweet kids sometimes behave in such mind boggling ways. 

Below are just a few situations shared 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.

Sound Familiar?

Here’s the thing: You don't need to figure it all out on your own.

No matter how unique your situation, there is someone out there who has faced something similar and has valuable wisdom to share. Connect with them!

And connect with the experts who study and understand these situations and help parents resolve them every single day!

Get the support you need!

Because when you have the best support for yourself, you can be the parent you want to be!

Our Experts Have Been Featured In

Here is What Our Current Members Are Saying...

As a mum myself and in my work as a child psychologist it has been invaluable and very inspiring for me. I’ve learned so much from all the masterclasses and expert calls and I love the way you lead those. You always seem very well prepared, asking great questions and making to the point summaries. I also love your enthusiasm and the personal touch by sharing your own experiences as a mum. So a big heartfelt thank you from me.

- Merel D.

I love the accessibility of the masterclasses. Whenever I have an issue, I search the masterclasses and inevitably find something to learn from and to be inspired by. It's great to have access to fantastic professionals who really know their stuff!

- Anonymous Parent in an Academy Survey

The Academy has been life-saving for us. The classes have completely changed us and is helping us SOOOOO much. I can’t even relay. We are barely yelling anymore, and are finding our way on this positive parenting path! Thank you.

- Sarah P. 

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. 

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.

I just wanted to say that your discussion with Hal Runkel was amazing. It really gave me such insight and a feeling of confidence about parenting. Everything he said made sense. Thank you so much!

- Priscilla K.

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

- Catherine K.

I LOVE having all this advice in ONE spot! The calibre and variety of the experts are phenomenal. I always feel like a better parent after having spent time with A Fine Parent before time with my daughter. THANK YOU!

- Anonymous Parent in an Academy Survey

Thank you for all your work regarding A Fine Parent Academy. It is a wonderful program! I have learnt so much and I am sure it is something that I can apply to several aspects of my life beyond parenthood.

Connect with Your Tribe of Like-Minded Parents

Since we started the Academy back in 2020, our members have told us over and over that the masterclasses with renowned psychologists and child behavior professionals have made a profoundly positive impact on their parenting approach…

And getting answers to their own specific parenting questions from proven experts was a game-changer for getting "unstuck" when they felt trapped in challenging parenting situations…

What they found equally helpful was being able to connect with other in-the-trenches parents just like them with whom they could share their troubles, celebrate their #LittleVictories or just vent, without any fear of judgment!

This is where our private Academy Facebook Group comes in.

It's a safe haven where you can glean advice (or give it!), learn a new tactic (or share one!), or simply chat and laugh about the weird and wonderful world of parenting with other like-minded parents, knowing that no matter what, they get you and they'll always have your back!

Just Watching ONE Masterclass, or Attending ONE Call Each Month Pays for Your Membership

Everything Else is Icing on the Cake!

You could go it alone...

You could read 80+ parenting books in your “spare time”...

You could search Google for days on end, sifting through thousands of sites for answers to your parenting questions...

You could keep struggling on your own going through countless cycles of trial and error…


You could join the 1,000’s parents who are already members of the Academy and get:

Those same parenting books in an easy-to-digest masterclass format

Practical and trusted parenting information curated and collected in one place

A ready-made community of friendly, helpful parents willing to share their struggles and successes so that everyone can learn, laugh, and benefit!

98 (and counting!) Expert Masterclasses each based on a popular book on parenting or personal development (With a conservative estimate of $37/masterclass, this is a $3,626 value)

2-3 Live Q&A Calls Each Month with professionals specializing in different fields of parenting (Again, with a conservative estimate of $37/call, this is an ongoing $111 value each month)

Private Facebook Group to connect with other like-minded parents (priceless 🙂)

BONUS: Downloadable audio files and transcripts for all masterclasses and Q&A calls so you can learn as you go about your chores or exercising, and read while you commute! (a $497 value)

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.

Still have questions?

Send us an email at support and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

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 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!

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!
