We’re Dr. Sarah Davis and Evie Granville, M.Ed., parenting researchers and community builders, authors and podcasters, best friends and moms.
We know there's no one-size-fits-all approach to raising kids. Instead, we believe the secret to the most positive and fulfilling parenting experience is to understand who you are as a parent—your strengths and struggles—so you can learn and grow alongside your child.
That's why we created a parenting personality quiz and framework, first introduced in our book, Modern Manners for Moms & Dads. In our speaking and parent education workshops, we help parents make sense of positive parenting through the lens of their parenting personality.
Our advice has been featured by Parents, MSN, The Washington Post, Associated Press, Reader’s Digest, and other major media outlets.
We started our careers as educators and met as new moms, when Sarah knocked on Evie’s door with a baby slung on her hip and invited her new neighbor to the pool.
Both raised as New Englanders, we've had the opportunity to live across the country, from Indiana to Texas, from California to Virginia.
