The Child Whisperer.

As an educator, I began my work in secondary education and I have since taught hundreds of thousands of people online. As a mother, I raised distinctly different children—and I’ve been where you are.

No two children are alike. Some are naturally loud and playful, others are more reserved. What worked for one of my students or children backfired for another. How do you know what to do?

I discovered that the key to effective teaching and parenting is to customize your approach to each child. I have a framework to help you do just that, so you don’t have to guess.

That’s why I wrote The Child Whisperer—to help you know what works for your unique child.

I invite you to read the book, listen to my podcast, and be the amazing parent your child needs.

  • Elizabeth Bonet, PhD

    “I have a PhD in clinical psychology with a specialty in family and couples’ therapy. You can imagine that I have extensive training in that area. But your system is the one I refer to on a daily basis. It completely changed how I relate to my own children and often how I relate to their father. It also helps me relate to clients professionally and help them in the changes they are trying to make in their lives and relationships.”

    "The advice in this parenting book is so practical that you can use it and see results immediately! Since reading this book, I have felt a deepening bond with each of my children, and I am more considerate of their feelings as challenges arise."

  • Sara H.

    "I have five young children, and although I may know my kids better than anyone else, I learned so much more about each of them through reading this book. Our interactions, discussions, and even difficulties have become much simpler and more joyful. It's true that a one-size-fits-all parenting approach doesn't work when you've got children that have different motivations, different ways of moving through the world, and different natural expressions!”

    “It doesn't matter how many kids you have, it doesn't matter where you live, it doesn't matter if you have a supportive spouse or not—it works.”
