Come get inspired to persevere on the journey of resource parenting with a heaping dose of hope and build up your resiliency to continue to be a hero in kid’s lives.


 “Charlie Appelstein spoke at the Harvard Medical School/Cambridge Course on School Mental Health. He trained/entertained/WOWED the over 450 participants. I don’t see a standing ovation too often…but he received one! We have already invited him back to participate in one of our other conferences.”
