L.T. Seidel Consulting, www.lorenaseidel.com, helps schools bring the gift of joyful parenting to families this year. They are excited to announce that Lorena Seidel, parenting and social-emotional specialist will partner with public and private schools to support the schools’ parent educational efforts throughout the school year.  

Not only will she be speaking at parent ed. events, but she will introduce her Joyful Parenting 101 online course to the community, a program aimed at creating a more positive relationship between parents and children, fostering a more peaceful home environment, ending the negative parenting cycle, and creating a more emotionally intelligent family.
Lorena’s goal is to revolutionize parent education for schools by taking parent education off the already busy school leaders and teacher’s plate.

School leaders have told me that their current model of parent education is not effective. Some schools admit to asking their own teachers to create and present parent education content which they feel is a lot to ask of their teachers after all that they already do,” states Lorena. 


Although most schools hire several experts or authors to give talks throughout the year, it is known that these lectures are sometimes random, disconnected, and shallow as an author can only give their signature talk during the event. Educators notice a lack of follow-up, implementation, and coaching as well as low attendance. Parenting events lack community building or an emotionally safe place for parents to bravely share their struggles, give and receive support. Therefore, at best parent ed efforts are inspirational, but not transformational. 

Lorena comes in and not only presents a hands-on, experiential, and transformational talk, but she offers a continued coaching program for the families that include videos, Q&A sessions, implementation, and monthly coaching. “The community of parents grows closer with every session, the conversation goes deeper, and parent-child connection and harmony take place,” states Lorena.

With Lorena’s program, school leaders can cross off Parent Ed. off their to-do lists for good!

According to client Alexandra McLaughlin, “This program was the absolute best step in parenting that I have invested in yet. I entered the group with practical knowledge about how to manage my children and home, but I was not applying it in the best way possible or even at all. Now I find that my days cruise along. There are going to be tough times and easy times but recovering from the tough times is so much quicker and easier than ever before. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I totally lost my cool on my kids. This has been a wonderful blessing in my marriage as well, as my husband and I continue to work together and help each other stay positive and purposeful in all that we do.”
