Welcome to Positive Parenting Seattle! We are so happy you are here.
Raising humans is hard work. We get it. It’s messy, relentless, ever-changing… and also, glorious. Let’s release the myth of “perfect parenting” and instead, uncover respectful and effective ways to engage with our kids. (Yep, we said respectful AND effective!) Our mission is to help parents, teachers and caregivers build deeply connected and cooperative relationships with the children in their world; helping families find more moments of joy, even amid the challenges.

Meet Our new Teacher: Brent swartz
We are thrilled to announce that our upcoming 7 Week Positive Parenting Class “Building Connection, Cooperation & Confidence”, will be co-taught by Katie Gruver (Positive Parenting Seattle Co-Founder & Parent Educator) & Brent Swartz (Licensed Public Health Nurse & father of two).
What people are Saying about our classes:
"This was a really helpful class that allowed me the brain space to think about my approach to parenting. Before taking this class I was really stuck in a rut and feeling overwhelmed by my 4 year old and 17 month old. This class gave me some simple and real life ways that I could better navigate my relationship with my kids and make our lives happier and more balanced. Thank you!!"
"So, if I were to only take one class on parenting, Positive Parenting is the one. I feel really lucky to have found this class, and especially Katie and Anne, and feel that it was the best bang for the buck that I could have hoped for. Thanks a ton, big fan." - Brent S. (Seattle)
"I'm so thankful for Katie and Anne (for) introducing me to a fresh and encouraging way to look at parenting. I had fallen into a routine of discipline that was not working for my family and felt like I needed some new tools! I found so many useful tools that I was excited to try out! This class is a must for anyone that needs some encourage and inspiration in their parenting. I am so grateful!"
