Parenting is hard, and it seems like it gets harder each day. Everywhere we look, we’re surrounded by examples of kids and parents that remind us how important it is to raise our children well and to inspire them to actively choose healthy lifestyles. Unfortunately, there are more bad examples than good ones out there.
I’m Dr. Palmer, founder of Backcountry Professor. I’ve worked as a wilderness psychologist, licensed counselor and clinical director, Professor and Corporate Executive… but most importantly, I’ve spent the last 20 years working with & coaching families and young adults, from the Yukon River to Southeast Alaska, British Columbia to Prague, Barrow to Arkansas… I’ve been leading treks my entire adult life.
Over the last two decades, I’ve learned a lot of lessons about what works well for families, and what seems to continue the problem. I’ve seen far too many kids end up in residential treatment, in substance abuse, and failing to meet their potential. I’ve seen too many parents doubt themselves, fall into the trap of endless counseling, divorce, and regretting their decisions as a parent.
One of the decisions that was hard for me, was to publicly share my own journey as a father. While I am fairly active on social media, in truth, I carefully guard my family life and I’m a really private person. So, after two decades of work with hundreds of families, after repeated requests about ‘how do you do, what you do, with your family’?… I sat down with my wife, with my kids, and we curated the lessons that we’ve learned into topics that every family can make part of their lives.
I share aspects of these lessons in all of our social media platforms, and I speak about these to organizations and groups, but now you can join a community of ambassadors of adventure based parents, all of us working together to build strong, healthy families.
I’m offering a free webinar on three keys to Adventure-Based Parenting, and it’s a great opportunity to see if you’re interested in what we have to offer your family.
So, if you want to see your kids healthy, making great choices for their future. If you want to inspire other families to make positive changes in their parenting.
