If you care about raising kids who become thriving adults, you’ve come to the right place!   There are a lot of different ways people raise great kids, but there are also some common themes that can help guide us. As a speaker, coach, podcast host, and author of Happy Campers: 9 Summer Camp Secrets for Raising Kids Who Become Thriving Adults, my goal is to share tips and information that help us all raise happy, healthy, independent, responsible kids. My research has often focused on social skills, as kids really need good social skills in order to form the positive relationships they need to have a happy, successful life.
