Here's the greatest gift
you can give your child:
Of all the character gifts
you can give your children,
being resilient is the critical underpinning of surviving
the bumps in the road they will experience going
through childhood and into adulthood.
Lorelei is a successful businesswoman who raised her children in unconventional ways, ignoring the current “psycho babble” that said the priority was to be your child’s friend. Instead, she chose the harder road of being a strong and consistent parent. (That doesn't mean spankings!) Her goals: To raise resilient children who would be able to "roll with the punches," and to guide her children safely through childhood despite being a busy mom.
One of her biggest regrets as a mom of now-grown children is looking back at what kind of a parent she was. She knows she did a lot right, because they turned out to be great people: responsible, good sense of humor, hard-working, etc. But oh--the things she now knows she could have done better! This is wisdom she now shares in her "Savvy Parenthood" webinars, speaking, and coaching.

Lorelei shares parenting expertise from her many experiences as a single mom raising children while also being an entrepreneur. She has numerous tips you can implement immediately to create rapport with your kids, from toddlers to teens.
Lorelei also presents the unique perspectives of her children in dealing with a busy entrepreneurial mom by sharing numerous notes and letters from her kids through the years. These are humorous and sometimes pointed notes they left on kitchen counters, or letters they wrote to her or their grandmother. They give a marvelous perspective from a child's viewpoint as to what it's like living with and dealing with a busy mom!
Lorelei appeared on the NBC Today Show (Minneapolis segment) with two other moms who loved her "Letting Go of Mommy Guilt" book.
Here's what a new mom who's a lawyer wrote Lorelei after reading her book:
"I loved your book!!! Letting Go of Mommy Guilt is the best book I've read on parenting to date. It was funny and witty and included some very savvy parenting tips. As a first time mom and mompreneur who wants to eat her cake and have it, it was reassuring and quite comforting to know that I can have it all. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down and spent all night reading in between nursing. I also have a favorite poem in there, which I will frame. Thank you so much for being a light along the way."
