The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting: A Wholehearted Revolution

What would it mean for our families, our community, and even the world if a critical mass of parents raised children who knew their worth and connected with others from a place of empathy and respect? Children who navigate the world believing, “Yes, we are all imperfect and vulnerable and sometimes afraid, but that doesn’t change the truth that we’re also brave and worthy of love and belonging.” It doesn’t matter if your child is 4 years old, 14, or 44 – parenting is a lifetime commitment.

Join us in this four lesson course as we explore what it means to raise children with courage, compassion, and connection.

This course marks the beginning of the Kitchen Table Parenting Collection and is the prerequisite course for any of the parenting deep dive courses.


There are no required readings for the class, but Brené's The Gifts of Imperfection is great foundational reading.            

Course is facilitated by Brené.


This course is now available.


You can purchase this course as part of  The Kitchen Table Parenting Collection Introductory Bundle and also get two single lesson deep dives - Boundary Setting and Expectation Setting for $100.

What people are saying about The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting: A Wholehearted Revolution

"Although my children are now adults, I have benefited from this course in learning emotional literacy to be able to name emotions, opening the door to having real conversations with my grown-up children, as well as my grandchildren and friends."

Dianne LeBlanc

"This class is the foundation for a collection of classes that will change the way you think about connection and vulnerability in your relationships with your children and people you share care-giving responsibilities with. "

Quillin Drew

"I was surprised at how much I love the collaborative part of sharing this exploration with my kids directly - co-creating with them instead of merely modeling or teaching "at" them. "
