I founded Cut the Crap Parenting as a bridge between gentle parenting and real life. Too many times I heard about all the books and all the podcasts,
"But what do you do when *that* doesn't work!?"
My friends told me they often wondered, "What would Denise do?" when they faced challenges, and they told me they saw *the real me* when I was cutting the crap about parenting.
And so, when I walked out of my marriage with 3 kids under the age of 6 and needed to "get a job," I created a way to help others live happier and more peaceful lives with clean food, clear boundaries, respectful communication, and less stuff."
I'm grateful for every opportunity to help that comes my way, and I'm excited to see what that looks like for you!
Chances are good that I've been there, done that. I can tell you the exact words to say and tools to use that have helped countless families live more peaceful lives.
