Life is better 'Outside the Box!'
Heather is an experienced speaker whose warm, engaging style connects with audiences. Her presentations touch on timely topics for parents and teachers – risk, safety and toy weapons; big feelings and conflict mediation; homework and recess; screens and the changing nature of childhood; and most of all, the unfettered glory of play.
Based on her renegade parenting books – It’s OK NOT to Share (Tarcher/ Penguin, 2012) and It’s OK to Go UP the Slide (Tarcher/ Penguin 2016) – Heather’s presentations lead audiences to confront deeply meaningful questions about parenting and learning in today’s world. Parents magazine called her first book “brilliant” and named it one of the Best Parenting Books of 2012. Salon.com called it "an insightful, sensible and compassionate book full of downright revolutionary ideas."
