Our Experts Have Been Featured In

Say goodbye to frustrated, “fumbling-in-the-dark” parenting

Ever thought about this?

Before we have kids, none of us learn about parenting. And after we have kids, who has the time?

So, most of us are doing the hardest job on the planet - raising human beings - with no prior training, some hearsay knowledge and a lot of 'gut feeling'.

Is it any wonder that we feel so exhausted, overwhelmed, and frustrated all the time?

It's time to change this!

Do you find yourself struggling with negative thinking (either in yourself or your child)?

Do you want to foster greater independence in your kids but you’re unsure how to proceed?

Are you overwhelmed by guilt that you're not doing enough?

Or maybe you feel like you're doing too much and it’s just not working…

We hear so many of these daily parenting struggles from our community each day!

So we designed the conference specifically to address all of these concerns and more!

What Parents Are Saying About Our Past Conferences

100% THE BEST online parenting conference I have ever participated in, HANDS DOWN. 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.

When I started this conference, I was feeling like a "bad parent" and was looking for advice on how to be a better or "good parent." I have learned that there are no "good" or "bad" parents. We are all on a constant journey to learn and practice being the best parents we can be.

Ellie S.

Every year I attend your conference and gain deeper knowledge to become a better parent and it helps me in enhancing my skills as a Parenting Coach and Behavioural Counsellor.

Rekha V.

Amazing and MIND OPENING masterclasses! Every single one of them offers knowledge that is relevant, applicable, and most of all hopeful!


I am shocked at the content that was available for free. As a mature parent, and someone who knows psychology, and someone who was raised by not the best parenting methods, I want to “get it right”. I am not a reader and don’t often finish an audio book so this video format was awesome! Thank you so much for what you have done here!

Justine P.

Positive Parenting Conference by AFineParent, is absolutely amazing & so rewarding. Loved the booklet and the challenges given to us. This is a massive learning & enriching experience.

Priti C.

I’ve been religiously watching the conference for the past 4 years... So valuable to me in my parenting journey.

Severine E.

Grateful from the bottom of my heart! I wish I learned about this years ago! Best parenting resource I’ve experienced so far!

Danica C.

Amazzinggg! It’s like 500+ YouTube videos on parenting, packed into one conference!

Angela R

I’m a busy, full-time working mom, with 2 daughters. I barely have time to shower, but I was hooked after just one masterclass. I love the format you use and the great helpful information. This was totally worth making time for. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Leigh M.

You couldn't imagine how much I love and enjoy the positive parent conference. I commit to joining it every year and encourage my friends and students' families to participate in it, too. Thank you for organizing this brilliant conference.

Yolanda H.

So far I have a total of 36 pages of notes 😱 and I am only part way through day 2️⃣. Words can not express how much I am enjoying and valuing listening to many authors I respect and being introduced to new ones. This Parenting Conference is helping me both personally and professionally.

Brooke B.

AMAZING! SO much valuable information for free! Awesome job getting answers to common parent concerns with real-life examples and tools to use!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are the masterclasses effective for toddlers or teens?

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. 

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.


How are these masterclasses different from regular positive parenting videos?

Regular “google-search” parenting videos seem convenient. But they’re often hit-or-miss, hear-say tips. Tips that try to fix surface-level issues in your relationship with your child, but never solve the root cause. (Which is why the “solutions” never seem to stick in the long run.)

At the Positive Parenting Conference, we promise you this:
No vague info. No half-answers. No hear-say advice.

Only real, practical, insightful solutions that:
    ➤ address every problem at the root
    ➤ deepen your relationship with your child
    ➤ resolve your real, everyday parenting issues - for good
    ➤ and are proven to have worked for hundreds of thousands of parents around the world!

Yes, hundreds of thousands.

Each masterclass is based on a popular best-selling parenting book that has been loved and approved by countless other parents like you!

AND you get to learn all these juicy insights, proven techniques, and solutions directly from the books' authors, who are practicing clinicians, psychologists, professors and counselors with decades of experience working with parents and kids.

Will the masterclasses work for me if I’m a single parent or am co-parenting?

We understand that no two families have the same dynamic. And the compilation of masterclasses has been designed with this fact in mind!

From single parents to those on the co-parenting journey, from new moms to old dads, and everyone in between - we’ve got you covered!

The deep insights, positive parenting strategies, techniques, and practical tips you get from each masterclass are proven to work for every kind of family! 

How do I access the masterclasses?

Once you register for the conference, we will send you emails with the link to the masterclasses in each track on the dates mentioned above. Just click on the link each day, select the masterclass you want to watch, and dive right in!

Sign up for the Positive Parenting Conference 2023 to get started using the buttons above.

What time zone is the conference being run in?

Finding time to do anything as a parent is hard enough without adding extra out-of-time-zone coordinating! This is why we’ve made the conference a “watch-on-your-own-time” system.

Once a track is launched, all its masterclass are available online for 1 full day + 1 BONUS catch-up day. Stream them whenever you want, and watch them at your convenience!

➤ Have an hour off after your kid’s bedtime in the US -- click play and dive right in!
➤ Finally got a moment to catch up during your afternoon tea in the UK -- we got you!
➤ Want to watch them while doing the mid-morning laundry in Dubai -- you’re sorted too!
➤ Going back home from work in the evening in India -- the masterclasses are ready for you!
➤ Or perhaps you want to listen while on your morning walk in Australia -- coming right up!

The masterclasses begin when you press play, and pause when you need a break. Say buh-bye to anxiety about time zones and missing out! 🙂

How much does it cost to attend the conference?

Nothing. Zilch. Zip. Nada. The conference is totally FREE between May 18th and May 22th.

We believe that the foundational positive parenting tools, techniques, and strategies that make us better (and happier) parents, should be available to everyone!

So once a year, we make our transformational masterclasses (that are normally exclusive to our AFP Academy members only) available to EVERYONE - for FREE!

So sign up today, to make the most of this once-a-year opportunity to transform your relationship with your child (and make parenting the enjoyable experience you dreamt it would be)!

How can I access the masterclasses after the conference?

The expert-led masterclasses are available for FREE during the week of the conference.

But for parents who love the masterclasses, and want them for longer or want more of them - we have the AFineParent Academy. The Academy gives you instant, 24x7 access to ALL the masterclasses from this year’s conference, and ALL the masterclasses from the previous years.

With 98+ expert-led parenting masterclasses, on everything from ending power struggles and dealing with anxiety, to handling screen issues, sibling fights, and so much more - the Academy helps you have proven solutions at your finger tips for every new struggle that you face as a parent.

Plus as an Academy member, you get access to live Q&A calls with parenting experts 2-3 times a month, a private members-only community, bonus workshops, and more!

Plus, she loves the extra motivation and accountability it gives her, to read all the parenting books that the masterclasses are based on!
