"How to Bully Proof Your Kid!"


“Mari has been an invaluable resource for me. As a mother of four in a blended family, there is always something going on where I question myself as a parent and how I can best help my children. Mari has proved time and again to be a great resource! “ 
Krista – Issaquah – Kids ages 4, 8, 9, & 11

"Mari's advice and ideas are specific and practical and help me be a better parent every day. It is hard to put into words how much she has helped me with my children. With her help I am raising amazing kids!"      Liz - Seattle - kids 10 & 16

“On two occasions, I have had issues at my children's school where I had to work with the administration to advocate for my children.  For me, a parent with limited knowledge of the inner workings of the educational system, Mari's insight as a school counselor and teacher gave me a unique perspective on how to respond in tough situations.” Melissa – Kirkland – Kids ages 6 & 14


 We are in the business of growing kids!
Mari Stevens, M.Ed.

I am an educator with over 20 years experience. My background ranges from classroom teaching and school counseling, to creating meaningful, interactive workshops for parents and teachers. I have 2 sons - ages 8 & 10 - who have taught me how hard and wonderful parenting can be. My workshops are filled with ideas, motivation, and laughter!  I also provide after-workshop support that makes practicing and implementing these new skills easier.


FUN!                                 MOTIVATING!                      INSPIRATIONAL!
