Hello there! My name is Celeste Jensen. I have been married for over a decade and have two children. One who came to our family through my giving birth to him and the other through the miracle of adoption.

I have found that no matter which way a child comes to you, there is always a chance that child is going to be a sassy, spirited, or strong-willed child.  In fact, almost every parent I know has at least one child that is a little more challenging than the others.  This can leave parents wondering what to do.

That’s where I come in! I spend my days interviewing experts who specialize in children and adolescents who are sassy, spirited, and strong-willed to bring you evidence-based parenting advice.  Everything you find on this site will be information that has been proven through years of study and is supported by science.  My job is to help parents like you parent confidently with the best information available.

I simply want to help you raise happy, healthy adults while staying sane yourself. Oh, I also want lots of chocolate, a back massage, and a clone to clean my kitchen for me.

Be sure to join our Facebook group where our experts answer parenting questions at least once a week!
