Supporting Parents with Online Resources and Discussions


Summit Series for Families has been supporting parents since 2009 when we launched our first online event.   Our site was developed to promote live discussions between authors of different parenting books with real people—parents, educators and teens.  Participants in our discussions and interviews have included media magnet, Lenore Skenazy, author of Free Range Kids; Diane Levin, Ph.D., professor of education at Wheelock College and author of So Sexy So Soon; and Peg Tyre, award-winning journalist and author of the groundbreaking book The Trouble with Boys.

Our basic belief is still the same—there’s no one “right” way to raise our kids, manage our families, or live our lives.  What works for one family may not work for another.  Our site has expanded to include book reviews and recommendations, online resources and timely information on topics that affect today’s families.  Our goal is to continue supporting parents and families by providing a platform to share ideas, resources and support.

If you are an author or publisher of a book that would be a good fit for our audience, please email for information on upcoming discussions or guest blog opportunities.
