Description

Ann Douglas sparks conversations that matter about parenting. She is the weekend parenting columnist for CBC Radio and the creator of Canada’s bestselling series of pregnancy and parenting books, The Mother of All book series. Her latest book is Happy Parents, Happy Kids.

If you've already met Ann via one of her books, you know what you can expect from one of her presentations: to be inspired, informed, and entertained. Not only will she shift your thinking about parenting: she’ll move you to action as well—and in a way that leaves you feeling confident and capable as opposed to anxious, guilty, or overwhelmed.

For over two decades, Canadians have turned to Ann Douglas for her reassuring, parent-proven, and never-bossy advice. This is your chance to tap into some of that wisdom.
