    As a mom of five children, I start my day at 7 am with a hefty dose of Amy Chua's (Tiger Mom) parenting style; full of ambition, shiny new rules and heavy goals for the day, and then over morning coffee, with my brain in high gear, I contemplate Elizabeth Badinter's (The Feminist) philosophy over a sink full of dirty dishes. After surviving a few tantrums and getting a few chores done, by naptime, I'm really tired and desperate to get my child (and me) asleep, so I indulge in a bit of Jamie Lynne Grumet's (attachment parenting) parenting style and just feel like I want to curl up with my children and snooze away. Order, obedience and patience levels decline as the day moves forward. Dinner time picky eating battles brings out the Pamela Drukerman (French laissez-faire parenting style) in me as I down my fourth glass of wine, and after the wine, the Lenore Skenazy approach (Free range kids) shines best when I crave some precious "me time". I end the day with the question, "What parenting style am I?" There are 50 shades of gray in parenting where everyone demands you be all black or white. Here is my advice to parents: Do the best you can with the resources you have and grow a really thick skin! Take care of yourself! Judy

    "Judy's teaching style welcomes interaction and introspection; she sets the stage for calm, non-judgemental opportunities for growth, and a chance to think differently about raising our children. She is a warm, welcoming speaker who has an amazing depth of knowledge at her fingertips. Everyone in the classroom or audience quickly learns that they can look to her for advice on any aspect of the topic on which she is focused. Rather than immediately giving advice, Judy always takes the time to guide and encourage parents as they find an answer that works for their family. Parents are indeed lucky to have a master parent educator like Judy to learn from, but the hundreds (thousands?) of kids who are being raised by these parents are the true beneficiaries of the classes Judy teaches." Laurie Strother, BSN Class Participant

    Judy can also present many other programs.
