Speaker Collage - Positive Parenting Conference 2018 -  Mobile

The 2018 conference is done. A great big shoutout to each and every one of the 33,209 parents who joined us and made this such a HUGE success!!! 

We will be back in 2019 with another awesome event.

In the meantime, we have all 20 life-altering talks + cool bonuses available in the 2018 Premium Recording Package with instant LIFETIME access. 

Positive Parenting Conference - Isn't it Ironic?

It's ironic, isn't it?

Before we have kids, none of us really think about the nuts and bolts of effective parenting.

And after we have kids, who has the time?

So invariably, most of us end up 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?

What if there was a better way? What if some of the top experts (who are also parents, and authors of popular books for parents) came to you, at your convenience and shared their best tips?

Hard as it is to believe, that's exactly what is happenning here. Between May 1st - 10th, 20 expert book authors with years of research, clinical and personal experience are coming together to help you tune up your parenting skills.

And the best part? It's 100% FREE, 100% online and flexible enough to fit into any schedule, anywhere!

What Makes This Conference Unique?

No Travel Required!

We bring the conference to you! The conference is completely online. Just register on this page and during the conference, we will send you an email every day with that day's talks. You can view them from the comfort of you home. In your pajamas. With no makeup on. While eating a tub of decadent chocolate ice cream. Or not. Your call.

FREE and Flexible!

The conference is completely FREE between May 01 - 10, 2018.

Based on your feedback at last year's conference, I have spread out the 20 talks over 10 conference days with 4 new talks added every other day, and a FREE bonus catch-up day in between. No matter where you are or how busy your schedule is, you should be able to catch all the talks you are interested in. So go ahead, watch them anytime, anywhere and in any timezone!

Unique Cohort of Speakers!

Our experts come from parenting, neuroscience, psychology, nutrition, personal development and personal finance fields! They are passionate about these topics and have spent years (and in many cases, decades), researching and working with parents and kids. They have published the kind of popular books that you would love to read if you had the time. And they are coming to you! Each of them by themselves is amazing, but what they bring to the table together is just priceless!

We Cover Both Why & How

Carrying on with the tradition from last year's event, we have again focused on "Knowlege + Action" being our primary goal. Our experts and I have spent tons of time discussing how best to offer the most value in each talk. Consequently, every single one of these talks packs a punch and contains incredibly practical and useful tips that can potentially change your life starting right now!

You're in Control!

Ever been to a conference where you were stuck at the back of the room and couldn't follow a word the speaker was saying? Or next to someone who had an opinion to share about every. single. thing. the speakers had to say? Well, guess what... not only will you have the best seat at this conference, but you can also pause, rewind and forward the talks! How cool is that?

We've Got You Covered!

Are you a new mom, or a an old hat? Do you have just one kid, or a dozen? Have you just heard about positive parenting for the first time, or have you been practicing this for ages? Are you single, married, have a partner or co-parent in two separate households? No matter where you are, we'll meet you there and provide you all the support you need.

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 with an internet connection.

How do I access the talks?

First, register for the conference below. Everytime I publish new talks, I will send you an email with the link to access the talks. Just click on the link and watch the videos at your convenience. 

What if I can't watch all the talks on the day they are posted?

4 new talks will be posted every other day during the conference - ie, on May 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th. Each "talk day" is followed by a FREE bonus catch up day for talks in that track. On the final day of the conference, ie, May 10th, all talks will be available for free. You can use these catch-up days to watch the talks you missed on the day they were published, or re-watch the ones that had the most impact on you.

What time zone are you in? I am worried that I won't be able the catch the talks since I am in a different timezone...

I am in the Central Time Zone, but it shouldn't matter much since each talk is up 2 full days. No matter where in the world you are, you should still be able to access these talks!

How much does it cost?

The conference is totally FREE to attend between May 1st - 10th, 2018

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

These talks are so valuable and so full of insights that we anticipate many of you will want to re-watch them again and again as your kids grow up and you face new challenges. So, we're making the recording packages available with lifetime access for a small fee. We've been fortunate to be able to offer a lot of bonuses with these recording packages and there will be special discounts available for early birds. So be sure to keep an eye out for them.

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!

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!

Behind-the-Scenes Rockstars

A very special heart-felt thanks to these wonderful people for their unwavering support and behind-the-scenes help in putting this conference together.  I couldn't do it without them. Thank you!
