Connie Allen has always been passionate about bringing forth the free expression of the joyous inner spirit in others and herself. She nurtures emotional wholeness in young people to empower them to let their light shine brightly in life. She delights in teaching parents how to read the manual their child and students came with and to find the joy and ease in relating with children.

Connie challenges parents to first look their own behavior to evaluate whether it supports them and their child. She then provides specific actions parents can take to nurture their own emotional well-being and that of their child. By focusing on their own behavior, parenting stresses diminish.
