This -N- That Parenting:  Changing Legacies One Family At a Time


Hi, I’m Shelly

I hold a Bachelors in Education and a Masters in Education and Principalship.  I spent over 15 years in the public school system before I became a mom.  Once I became a mom, I experienced quite a shock.  I had a lot of questions, and I set out to find the answers.  So began my personal transformation. 

I share positive parenting information with other intentional parents.  This site is what I wish I had along my parenting journey when I decided to switch from traditional parenting style.  Everything you will find here is research-based or personally experienced.  My intent is to help parents become a little better each day.
