Parenting is really hard sometimes.

I want to help.

I get it about how challenging parenting can be. I also get how important it is to cultivate a close connected relationship with our children. They need it, they deserve it, and so do you!

In both my own personal experience as well as in my consultations with parents, I’ve learned that it’s one thing to read about peaceful and conscious parenting, and to come to some intellectual understanding about it. And it’s another thing to go out and actually try to be a peaceful, understanding, calm and connected parent.

If you are struggling with any of these things, or if you are looking for help in a specific situation or circumstance, contact me using the form below.

About Eric D. Greene, “1 Awesome Dad”

I help parents who want to do things differently from the outdated authoritarian “tough love” parenting paradigm.  Parents who are ready to experience deep connection, happiness and fulfillment in their relationships with their children, and not have their relationship be based on fear and control, but on love, respect and appreciation instead.

I’m a father and husband, an advocate of positive, peaceful and conscious parenting, and I have a bachelor’s degree in Sociology with emphasis in social work.

Consulting, writing, and advocating for positive, peaceful parenting is my purpose and my passion.

My philosophy towards being a parent comes down to three things:

1) Attitude is everything.

In parenting, and in life generally, I find that attitude is everything.  Life has a way of mirroring back to us the attitude we hold within. And nowhere else do I find it more true than in our relationships with our children.

2) Treat your child the way you would wish to be treated

The way to get what we want and hope and wish for in our children is simple (albeit challenging!) – treat them with the same respect and dignity that we would wish to be treated ourselves.  In other words, do unto your children the way you would have them do unto you.

3) Don’t just preach about it, BE about it!

Be the example person you want your child to become. After all, how can you make demands on them without living up to the same expectations yourself? Modeling the behavior you want to see is the single best way of teaching and raising children.

The items above are more easily talked about than put into practice.
