Are you a helicopter parent? Do you hover over your child, watching and directing every move? Or maybe you are a hot-air balloon parent, thinking you don't really have much influence over your child at all. There is an alternative. Learn how to become a Pathfinder Parent, and raise your child to become confident and self reliant. While the helicopter parent solves the child's problems, and the hot-air balloon parent ignores the problems, the Pathfinder Parent helps the child learn to solve his or her own problems.
Pathfinder Parenting is highly interactive, designed to give parents the tools they need to immediately become more effective and less stressed.

Passion for learning has been nearly eliminated in our nation’s schools. It seems that we have forgotten how passion fuels a child’s desire to achieve, in favor of teaching everyone to pass minimal skills tests. This trend has been particularly harmful to gifted children, who are systematically muted and crushed in our race to mediocrity. Learn how to bring passion back into the classroom so that all children can develop their gifts.
