Aileen Jarvis is a mother of two (mostly) wonderful children and an independent author. She launched her writing career with the book Parenting With Purpose: A Practice Guide to Disciplining With Empathy and Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child. With years of experience working with children and raising her own, she realized that one of the most common issues parents faced when working with children has always been the way in which parents are so radically underprepared to cope with the stress and challenges of parenthood. These experiences led her to become an advocate for evident-based positive parenting techniques. In her spare time...well what is spare time when she is busy raising two kids and writing her second book? But if her husband is reading this, in her spare time, she would love to have a date night and perhaps a gift certificate to her favorite salon or a spa place.
