Erin Holland

Being a mom to daughters has been the most rewarding and challenging role I’ve taken on to date. Investing in children and empowering them to see their unique traits as critical facets to contribute to society is one thing, but they learn from their parents, their first and most constant teachers. In that respect, parents need to be demonstrating these traits as well. My personal mission is to empower others to assess their values and priorities to live their best life and to be worthy of emulation, especially around those kiddos who are always watching and learning. Kids will reflect what they see, so parents need to be more aware of what they’re putting out into the world.

PG-ish Parenting began as a way to encourage parents to evolve alongside their children, becoming the true leader in their homes that they want to be.
