If you’re looking for a knowledgeable, passionate, and engaging teacher to share positive parenting solutions, look no further. Amy is the real deal!

The Sewickley Academy Home & School Association was fortunate to host author and educator, Amy McCready, for one of our parent programming offerings. Amy spoke to an auditorium full of parents about Curing the Entitlement Epidemic, and she did not disappoint! In just 90 minutes she shared with parents a plethora of strategies to help children go from complaining to contributing. And her note-taking guide was especially helpful! She kept our parents focused and engaged during her entire presentation as she explained how to use positive parenting solutions to help overcome power struggles we might have with our children, from toddlers to teens. Amy places a lot of importance on helping children feel like family contributors, which in turn improves their self-worth and they just might start taking more initiative at home. If you’re looking for a knowledgeable, passionate, and engaging teacher to share positive parenting solutions, look no further. Amy is the real deal!
