Kristin Shorter is a mother of three, #1 best-selling author, Human Design Specialist, Family Coach Facilitator, teacher and speaker. Kristin believes that parenting is the most important job on the planet and specializes in working with families to raise kids that are resilient to peer pressure and have high self-esteem.
Born and raised in Texas, Kristin graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelors in Psychology and is certified as a Victims Outreach Specialist through the University of Texas in Austin.
But, most importantly, her 17 years as a mother has given her the education and dedication to support parents in having a deeper connection with their children so they experience more love and joy in their relationship with their child.
From her work, Kristin knows that children have 4 emotional needs. When children lack the language to explain their feelings, they use their behavior as their voice. As children mature, if they don’t learn how to communicate when their emotional needs are not met, they continue to act out or “misbehave” as a form of communication.
Kristin’s work centers around identifying what need the behavior is communicating and techniques to support children in communicating instead of “misbehaving.”
Kristin’s work has been featured on Amazon, various radio shows and tele-summits.

Our Shared Beliefs:
Parenting is the most important job on the planet. As children progress through different life stages the skill called Parenting also needs to be updated to suit what’s developmentally and age appropriate for each child.
Healthy parenting is a skill that can be learned at any stage in life and it’s never too late to make changes that will deepen the connection with your child and teach them to be capable and believe in themselves.
We focus on communication including behavior as a form of communication and believe that all behavior has a positive intent.
The goal is to nurture and teach parents without judgement or criticism so that all parents and care givers can benefit from parenting education and support groups.
