"I am thrilled to be able to let our global community of parents know about these most recent sources of helpful information and inspiring ideas."
PCI Certified Parent Coach® Angie Collins, has started the weekly podcast,"Everyday Mom Stuff" that delivers the story of a mom's journey, or a snippet from her own motherhood adventures, or a simple chat on general stuff that happens in the everyday lives of every mother. She invites moms to "listen in for laughs, parenting tips, and a little comfort knowing we're all going through some 'stuff' and…yes, we're getting through it!"
"My favorite part of being a coach is to make connections for my clients and to see their "AHA" moments come alive. When they report back to me that they've integrated their new learning into their daily life, I know I have made a difference," explains PCI Certified Parent Coach®, Jane Romeo. Jane's recently launched monthly newsletter is chock full of fresh ways to integrate research-based ideas into daily parenting decisions.
In addition to the above resources, spring blossomed four new books from PCI Coaches that parents can now add to their summer reading lists.

Louise Clarke, owner of Your Parenting Partner combined her expertise as a family support specialist with her experiences parenting her own teens to develop the e-book, Parenting the Modern Teen: The secret to understanding, connecting, and communicating with your teenager in a disconnected, distracted and digital world.
