About Amy

Recovering Yeller & Parenting Coach

Meet Amy McCready

Founder & Parenting Coach

Kids: 2
Location: Raleigh, NC

Before Amy began her Positive Parenting Solutions journey, she was a trainer and senior manager for Fortune 500 companies.

When she found herself in the throes of parenting toddlers – complete with all of the yelling and temper tantrums you can imagine – Amy decided there MUST be a better way.

Her humble, but desperate realization ignited a lifelong fire to solve these power struggles in her home once and for all. After years of researching Adlerian Psychology and Positive Discipline, Amy put the knowledge into practice with her own family.

Astounded by the transformation she experienced with her two boys, Amy knew she had to share these methods with other parents. She never wanted another parent to feel as hopeless and desperate as she did in those early years which is why she created the Positive Parenting Solutions Course.

Amy’s experience as a corporate trainer paired with her positive parenting research and Positive Discipline certification, make her a trusted voice in parenting circles.

Not only is Amy a trusted teacher by over 75,000 families worldwide, but she is a valued contributor on many media outlets. Amy is a regular parenting contributor on the Today Show, has authored two best-selling books and has written and appeared on a plethora of other media outlets.


During the few moments when Amy is not working, you can find her with her adult sons, enjoying a Broadway show, or occasionally binge watching her favorite political dramas. She loves to travel with her husband and business partner, Dave, and volunteers her time teaching parenting classes at her local church.
