Now, I have to be honest - I loved the ad.
But after listening and trying to understand where my ad-hating peers are coming from, I have some questions.Read More
We recently received a shipment of books that should have been ready to ship out to you all, but they came out with a few issues.Read More

I picked up Amy Morin’s book a few months ago, and instantly fell in love with it. Let’s start with the fact that I am a list person. I love lists. My day is ruled by lists and having a list of things to do or not do is right up my alley.Read More
So, we didn’t make our Kickstarter goal. That’s okay. Sometimes, on this road of life, we run into bumps and roadblocks. This doesn’t have to keep us from reaching those goals.Read More
We talked a lot about what our first book should be, and ultimately we decided on Empower Me to Make Rules for My Body because we felt that the issues discussed in this book are so fundamentally important! Let’s look at some numbers that underline this importance.Read More
Weston (my wonderfully creative illustrator and partner in crime – not really, just partner in business) and I have been working on Empower Me to Make Rules for My Body for over a year and a half now. It has been a labor of love and deep passion.

I turned to her and said, "It's every parent's nightmare. I am so terrified that something like that will happen." She looked at me and actually scoffed. "Well, you don't really have to worry about that. You have a boy."Read More
Every once in a while, I see a mom, at her wits end, begging for advice on how to handle her unruly child. "They don't listen, they hit, they scream, they cry, they bite... etc". Someone will offer advice, and then another mom will chime in and say - "Well, you can't do that. Developmentally, they won't understand that." And chances are, they're right. Your teething 9 month old won't understand why she can't bite you. Your 1-1/2 year old might not understand why he's not allowed to stand in the cart. You know what, teach them anyway.Read More
I feel like this "diary entry from a 2-year-old" demonstrates perfectly why it's important to teach autonomy and agency, why it's important to demonstrate respect, why we Just A Moment Publishing are such huge proponents of Gentle Parenting and teaching our children to be mentally strong!Read More
