Parenting can be a challenging job, where parents find themselves yelling at their child, but not wanting to. It's easy to fall into a pattern of threats and ineffective punishment with children, not knowing a better way to parent, but when parents uncover why children act the way they do, they can address the reasons for the behavior and the need to threaten or punish vanishes.

Erin Taylor, MA, parent coach, therapist, soccer coach, happily married mother of four and author is pleased to announce the release of her first book entitled Connection and Kindness: The Key to Changing the World Through Parenting. Discover how to let your child's core of kindness shine through - as well as your own - in this easy-to-read, effective parenting tool.

“With her vast experience of working with families of all kinds––foster, adopted, biological––Erin shows us how kindness can transform even the most challenging situations. Read this book for its downright practicality in how it addresses the nitty gritty of everyday life with your children,” says Dr. Shefali Tsabary, Author of The Conscious Parent and Out of Control.

Erin has worked for almost two decades with families of all kinds, from foster and adoptive families to biological, divorced, blended and single-parent families. She earned her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Drexel University and her Master's Degree from Loyola University Maryland.

Erin met her future husband, Jay, when they were 18 and they are now both pursuing careers that they love while joyfully raising their three heart-healthy children. Their first daughter, Sydney who was conceived via In-Vitro Fertilization, died of a heart defect when she was only 24 days old. Erin and Jay founded and for 12 years ran a non-profit organization, the Sydney Mae Taylor Foundation, to help other young people living with heart defects, while maintaining her career as a therapist.

Getting to that balanced, peaceful place as a parent can be a very difficult thing to do. Erin found herself questioning her judgment and decisions, turning to books to help her find her way on the parenting journey. The most profoundly transformational book she discovered was The Conscious Parent by Dr. Shefali Tsabary which inspired Erin to dive deeply into Dr. Shefali's teachings.

Erin states "As a conscious parent teacher, student and parent myself, I understand that parents have all the wisdom inside of them that they need to be the exact parents their children need them to be, but in order to access that wisdom, they need to 'grow themselves up.' I am thrilled to help parents find their way on their parenting journey, helping them to become the parents they always wished to become and have the relationships with their children they only thought was possible in their dreams."

Erin is a PCI Certified Parent Coach© and the founder of It Takes a Village Parent Coaching ( helping parents to develop deeper, more fulfilling relationships with their children. Erin believes that parenting is one of the most challenging and sacred tasks we can ever take on in life, while also being the most rewarding and satisfying.

"Erin inspires us to be amazing parents by truly seeing our children's souls...your parenting transformation will happen quite naturally," says Sheila Wenger, Lead Instructor at The Parent Coaching Institute, PCI Certified Parent Coach at The Parent Partner, LLC.
