Our children: we love them SO much.
There is nothing that compares to parenting when it comes to being so wonderful and so maddening at the very same moment.
Twenty years ago, I founded Head & Heart Parents to guide parents through this complicated maze of raising children who grow into good adults. Thousands have taken my classes and gleaned insights from my presentations. I am passionate about parenting and now I am bringing it all online!
On my site, you will find a wealth of information about parenting as well as resources for preserving your own sanity and sense of humor while living with young people.
Online Parenting Classes
For the past 17 years, my Head & Heart Parenting classes have helped thousands of parents calm the chaos and bring more emotional well-being to their families.
Live with Kerry
I am now doing LIVE sessions on Instagram and Facebook. These are fun, interactive dialogs where we confront some of the most daunting parenting challenges.
I offer coaching for parents through my private practice to help families become more connected, more peaceful, and more emotionally intelligent.

Parenting is hard
We can all use a bit of help navigating the challenges.
Kerry has been teaching classes to thousands of parents for over twenty years, and now she is sharing her wisdom online.
Recently she spoke to a large group of parents from a school here in Denver. Somewhat tongue-in-cheek, she called the mini-course “How to Parent Without Losing Your Mind”. You can see it here.
Want Kerry to let you know when more online parenting classes are rolled out?
I’ve decided to offer one of my most popular mini-courses for free. This 6-step Guide to Putting an End to Misbehavior will give you the tools you need to bring peace to your household.
Like a good therapist, I will never, ever share your info.
From cradle to college, Kerry helps parents walk the tightrope of lovingly meeting children’s needs for secure attachment while preparing them for a world of cause and effect.
… to teens
As children morph into adolescents, parents must evolve their parenting model to prepare youth for independence while maintaining strong, loving connections.
Kerry is Live on Facebook and Instagram
Every week I try to get together with parents across the country to talk about parenting. Our get-togethers usually last about 30 minutes and they are rich! I invite you to join us as we tackle some of the more interesting dilemmas we all face as we navigate the greatest parenting challenges.

We love that you gave us things to implement right away, it made us feel very hopeful, and we are thankful for that and for you.

Kerry created a comfortable environment where everyone feels okay to share and ask questions. She presents the material in an interesting way. She does a great job of monitoring time and tailoring class to what was useful and relevant to us. Great job of answering questions, but keeping the class focused.

Family Alchemy involves transformation and creation of new patterns in a family. Participate in conversations where every individual gets to feel heard, seen and known, without conflict or tension. Developed by Kerry for families with teens, Family Alchemy is a place to break out of narrow ruts of how family members communicate with each other.
When my girlfriend gave me this dishtowel, I laughed and said in tears, “Yah, the number was 303-7&5-0$21.” That was her number when my kids were young. That was my helpline when I needed to know if I was being too hard or too soft with my boys. I called that...
One of the ingredients in a close, connected family is that its members feel seen, heard and known. To really hear what someone is saying is a science and an art. Let’s talk! How about jumping on a live for a chat this afternoon about what gets in the way of really...
The hardest part of my day used to be prying my preschooler and kindergartner's arms off my legs when I had to drop them off at school. My sons' howls of protest hurt my heart at the same time it made me wonder what I was doing wrong or what was wrong with them. All...
