It's ironic, isn't it?

Before we have kids, none of us really thinks of learning about parenting.

And after we have kids, who has the time?

So technically, we're doing the hardest job in the world - 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?

No wonder most of us default to nagging and yelling so often. And feel so lost and adrift. And unsure of what to do when faced with difficult situations.

What People Are Saying About Our Past Conferences

Thank you for your hard work and time to present such a convenient and wonderful parenting conference that was applicable to all ages. This was no easy feat, I am sure. The topics were well presented, you allowed an extra day in between the conference for us to make sure we were able to parent and learn how to be a better parent instead of needing to put our parenting on hold while we learned about becoming a better parent. You did a great job asking thoughtful questions for clarification, really took the time to understand the clarify important principles and steps. Thank you again for all you did.

— Dana B. (Via Email)

100% THE BEST online parenting conference I have ever participated in, HANDS DOWN. Sumitha gets down to the nitty-gritty and speaks with a wide variety of experts who have had a multitude of experiences with children. Because of this conference, my entire view was changed for the better on topics like alternative schooling. If you have any interest in guiding your children in a way that breeds lifelong RESPECT rather than fear, this is absolutely where you should be.

— Kayla L. (Via Facebook)

You are a Godsend! THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for putting this whole conference together! I just recently stumbled upon your website and WOW such an answer to my prayers. You are planting a VERY big seed for generations to come! This conference was EXTREMELY helpful and beneficial because sometimes it can be hard to grasp a concept or understand a new method and you did an EXCELLENT job leading the discussion and pulling out things to help pave a path. You gathered top-notch speakers in such a professional manageable way and I could NOT be more grateful! Thank you so much!

— Casey V. (Via Email)

I really like Sumitha's take on Children's issues and that she admits she is not a perfect parent either! She is real and struggles like the rest of us. The Positive Parent Conference was AMAZING! SO much valuable information...for free! Excellent speakers and Sumitha did an awesome job of bringing up issues and getting answers to common parent concerns with real life examples and tools to use! I just love the fine parent weekly newsletters... gives me something to thing about and parenting goals every single week!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the conference held? Do I have to travel?

Nope, no travel required. This is a 100% online event and is located wherever you are. You can watch from anywhere and any time zone as long as you have a smart device with an internet connection.

How do I access the masterclasses?

First, register for the conference on this page. Every time we publish new masterclasses, I will send you an email with the link to access the masterclasses. Just click on the link and watch the videos at your convenience.

How can I make the most of the conference?

Our best suggestion is to print out the FREE Conference Takeaways eBook that you receive when you register and throughout the conference take notes on it. Between what we have put together and what you note down, these should carry you thorough the year till our next year's conference :) 

(If you want to have continued access to the masterclasses, see the question below)

What timezone are you in? I'm worried that I won't be able to watch the masterclasses since I'm in a different country/timezone.

I am in the US Central Time Zone, but it shouldn't matter since each masterclass is available online for 2 full days. No matter where in the world you are, you should still be able to access these masterclasses!

What if I can't watch all the masterclasses on the day they are published?

4 new masterclasses will be posted every other day during the conference - i.e., on September 22nd, 24th, 26th and 28th. The intermediate days -i.e., September 23rd, 25th and 27th are FREE bonus catch-up days for masterclasses in that track. On the final day of the conference, ie, September 29th, ALL masterclasses from ALL tracks will be available for free. You can use these catch-up days to watch the masterclasses you missed on the day they were published, or re-watch the ones that had the most impact on you.

How much does it cost to attend the conference?

Nothing. Zilch. Zip. Nada. The conference is totally FREE between ​September 22nd-29th, 2020.

What if I want to watch the masterclasses after the conference ends?

This year, with the conference we are launching our brand new positive parenting community called the AFineParent Academy which will give you instant access to ALL the masterclasses from this year's conference (and all the masterclasses from all our past conferences too!) Additionally, you will get amazing community features such as a private Facebook community, live Q&A calls with experts, Parenting Support Circle calls and more. 

The link to join the AFineParent Academy will be included in the emails with the free masterclass links. So look for that if this is something you are interested in.

Also, please note that the enrollment to the AFineParent Academy is open only until the end of the conference. Once the conference is done, we will be shifting our focus to serving and supporting the parents who have joined the Academy.

And finally, the earlier you join, the bigger the discount, since these early sales help us re-invest in bringing the conference to even more parents.

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 of a thought to parenting. After all, parents have done this for ages... how hard can it be, right? 


Oh, how naive I was!

Oh, how naive I was!

My daughter challenges me every step of the way. She is my 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 am moved to tears by my weaknesses.

In 2013 I started AFineParent.Com to make sense of it all. Its been a fascinating and fulfilling few years since! This conference is in some sense a culmination of everything I set out to do then -- be curious, learn, keep an open mind and find a way to really enjoy the journey while finding a sense of purpose and fulfillment. 

I hope you find as much value in participating in this conference, as I did in putting it together!our text here...
