As a father of four, Glen understands first-hand how parenting can indeed be one of the toughest jobs in the world. He also knows how rewarding it is to see one’s children growing up feeling loved, assured and closely bonded with their parents.
In this one hour seminar, Glen shares the five fundamental positive parenting tools, based on positive psychology research. You’ll leave feeling equipped with the skills to better connect with your children and to empower them to tackle a complex world. Our first responsibility as parents is to enjoy our kids. Because how you think about being a parent deeply shapes how your child will see the world. When you are enjoying your children you are teaching them that the fundamental engine of what makes a family thrive and flourish is joy, not angst, depression, despair or destitution but joy.

“Thank you for you dynamic, energetic, positive talk last night. You raised many relevant points that my partner and I have been concerned about regarding teenagers in general. It can be difficult as a parent to explain to your son why our values, rules differ from his peers and why he may not have the same freedom others have, but be allowed a different type of independence that is set within boundaries.”
“Fantastic seminar, I plan on setting up vision boards for my son and myself, and have already incorporated ‘Selah’ moments into my day. I am feeling more connected to my son. Thank you for hosting the seminar.
“Glen was in the moment and his words were so true to modern day situations. He definitely was an inspiration and made me feel that persevering and putting some new strategies in place would help myself cope with the stress my daughter is under with her schooling and ATAR. My daughter was so blown away with Glen’s encounter I could feel that her spirit was lifted ten fold. Truly worthwhile.”
“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your inspiring and engaging talk you held last night for parents. I have attended many talks over the years about teens and how to be a better parent etc, but your talk last night was on another level!”
