"The audios are brilliant."

Wow, the mp3s are really gifts that keep on giving. They are brilliant. Yesterday really blew my mind. Understanding the science behind it makes me able to feel even more compassion for where children are. It is such a relief to find your work and this whole approach. I really resonate with it and deeply want to build a solid relationship of good communication with my daughter. I am ecstatic to find this now. Mahalo a nui loa.

Make Parenting Less Painful and More Satisfying.

Does it feel like conscious parenting has "rules" that are impossible to follow?

Maybe you're trying, but you find it absolutely exhausting to pause first or feel like your every word is nitpicked.

Most of us are stretched too thin and desperate for a moment of peace and privacy. 

We're doing our best to try to find a balance between meeting our own needs and helping our kids.

But it might seem like the pressure to be "gentle" and say the right words is unsustainable.

And it is - if we're looking for perfection from ourselves or our kids.

Even if your childhood was filled with caring adults and happy experiences, many of us carry the baggage of conventional parenting ideals.

  • Power structures that deny basic needs. 
  • Obedience is favored over emotional expression. 
  • Power-over instead of power-with communication. 
  • Imbalanced family systems rooted in “authority” and punitive force.

But, once you have the right view - you're not swayed by false assumptions about your kids or the pressures of societal demands. 

There is ONE thing that will outlast ALL the unsolicited advice you receive about parenting your kids. It's your relationship with your child.

I want investing in your relationship to be a stress-free experience.

Introducing my Parenting Essentials Academy: Your Blueprint to a Brighter Future - $597.

All-access pass to my ENTIRE LIBRARY of parenting topics. Yes, yes!! All of it. Every. Single. Course.

Breakthrough strategies, communication frameworks, stress and trauma resources, anger management, and skill-building activities, sensitive children explained - you name it - this is your complete toolkit to conscious parenting and communicating.

Now over 1200 $2500 of my MOST POPULAR CLASSES!

"I have enjoyed the classes so much."

I have enjoyed the classes so much. Yesterday I was triggered and caught myself and began to investigate, found the needs and instead of beating myself up for them - my heart broke open and sobbing commenced. I have some hardened ideas beginning to soften. Thank you!

They're Growing So Fast!

Once a year, the Parenting Essentials Academy opens with a big discount to help as many people as possible. This year, I'm practically giving it away!

If you're like most parents who worry (sometimes endlessly) about their child's future - you might see the years flying by and suddenly think - is this it?

Is this how it will be for the next 5, 10, 15 years?

"They push my buttons every single day." 

"I'm tired of the power struggles." 

"Why is everything always such a battle?"

"I just want a break sometimes." 

Empathy isn't easy when we're triggered or fearing what might happen all the time. 

Connection isn't possible when we're stressed out and viewing our children through a lens of "obedience." 

There's no point in judging ourselves (or our kids) when we can do so much to shift things in our favor.

You're not alone if you've woken up thinking: 

"I don't know what to do anymore." 

"I feel like I'm failing as a parent." 

"It's hard to keep up with everything."

  • Guidance to support your sensitive child and help them thrive.

  • Webinars with licensed professionals teaching us how to recognize and protect our kids from stress.

  • Tools to manage anger, communicate effectively, and understand the heavy emotional work that parenting entails.

  • The framework and process for using language free of blame, shame, judgment, guilt, and fear without being permissive.

"Thank you!"

 Thank you for giving me my son back!

Kimberley Balfour, California

It's time to address the real reasons behind your child's behavior (because they're growing way too fast)!

If you want to ensure a strong relationship with your child and keep your sanity - stop questioning every decision you make!

"Best thing I've ever done for myself."

I learned so much about myself. It was the best thing I've ever done for myself and my family.

Maria Pilerio (Mom of 8 Kids)

So many parents, just like you and me, struggle with the same doubts and fears.

We believe our child's behavior is unwarranted, that things will never change, or that our kids are old enough to "take responsibility," and we're unsure when things are going to getting better.

"We are all so much happier!"

Working with Lori Petro in person has been an absolute gift from God! The monthly member support calls are invaluable! She has given me the tools to create a cooperative, respectful and connected relationship with my daughter. I am forever grateful to her for the results we experience in our home every day. We are all so much happier!

Jennifer Miskiel, Pennsylvania

You are NOT resigned to living a life of walking on eggshells or wanting to run away.

If the daily battles of getting kids out the door on time or to bed without a debate are wearing you down - you're so close to turning that around.

Each class contains bite-sized, high-impact lessons designed for parents who need to see results quickly. If you put in the work and do the exercises (this is mandatory for real growth) - you'll transform your home life and create a nurturing, loving environment for your children, even with limited time.

"I feel a hundred times better!"

Lori Petro, you are truly amazing! What a fabulous Q&A call. I feel a hundred times better and needed to hear every word you had to say. My heart thanks you for your compassion. I'm glad to be a part of this class and appreciate your work.

Lavanda Loncharich, Texas 

The Parenting Essentials Academy program was designed with your busy schedule in mind.

🕒 As parents, our time is a precious resource in short supply. You may be juggling work, household responsibilities, and your child's needs, leaving you with minimal time for personal growth.

But when the need for change at home with our kids is pressing, we want fast, effective solutions. Each course lesson is presented in mini-video sessions. And classes are accompanied by transcripts or optional audio lessons to accommodate the needs of all types of learners.

"I absolutely loved this class!"

I absolutely loved this class. I learned so much just from the first session. It has already changed my life! Love you for all you do! 

Strawberri Young, Utah 

Act Now because the Academy is only open briefly (I wish I could but I can't make it available all year).

Feel like you're "pretending" to be a peaceful parent? Get the support you need to make it a reality!

"I love how you teach and explain everything."

I must say that I have taken many, many parenting classes and read many books over the last 27 years. I love how you teach everything and explain everything.

"I now listen to my son to understand him instead of defending my decisions."

Thank you for your course. It has been a wonderful defining point in my journey to effective, respectful communication. Everyone is benefiting from it! My son recently said, "You are different lately. It's like you are more interested in me!" I now listen to him to understand him instead of having to defend my decisions as a parent or give in!!  And nobody gets mad! Thank you, Lori!

Carolyn Magnussen, Norway

"Lori has a gift for teaching us how to communicate."

Lori has a gift for taking the ideas of conscious parenting and making them concrete by teaching us how to communicate in new ways. 

Dr. Shefali Tsabary, Clinical Psychologist & Author

Do You Know the Top 5 Fears Peaceful Parents Like Us Might Experience?

Finding nonjudgmental support that addresses these fears and helps us navigate our emotional world is a crucial piece of learning to teach through love.

  • 1. Questioning whether this is "effective discipline."

We're worried about finding discipline strategies that are both effective and respectful. It's understandable. We want to guide our children without resorting to punishment. 

Learn the difference between being punitive and allowing a true "consequence."

  • 2. Wondering how to balance boundaries and freedom.

Finding the right balance between setting boundaries and allowing children the freedom to explore and learn independently can be a constant concern. 

Discover how to empower your children while keeping them safe. 

  • 3. Teaching "respectful communication" feels weird.

Sometimes, we're so locked into our ways of reacting to our children there's no room for change to happen. We strive to maintain open and respectful communication with our kids. 

But our words aren't natural (it might even feel stilted or corny to speak with empathy).

"So happy to have concrete and practical methods."

This class is helping our family so much. I want you to know that I have read countless books and blogs, and talked to everyone around me for advice, but nothing compares to the perfect fit of this class for us. I am so happy to have concrete and practical methods to apply and real language that I trust to use! You are doing a most important job!!! Thank you! 

Yasmin & Billy Shaddox, California

  • 4. Worried about raising a spoiled child.

Ohhh, we stress so much about how our children will fare in social situations, particularly when our parenting approach differs from more traditional methods. Conscious parenting is exactly what our society needs. 

Learn to end power imbalances and ensure your children can navigate social interactions with confidence.

  • 5. The judgment from other parents is stressful.

Anyone who follows a gentle approach will face judgment or criticism from others who may not understand or agree with their methods. You can handle the haters.


Learn to block out unwanted opinions and stay true to your parenting principles with my Parenting Essentials Academy Membership.

"Cannot thank you enough. We are seeing big changes!"

My husband and I just cannot thank you enough for the ways this course has affected our lives. We are seeing big changes. We had the instinct, the intention and the determination for conscious parenting, but lacked the skills and tools required to actually make it happen until now. A million times, thank you.

Danielle, Senini, Australia

Soni Albright

I have read quite a few books on conscious parenting, but just reading and listening to your sample audios about how parenting is about being in a RELATIONSHIP has given me amazing clarity, and I have had an incredible week with my nine-year-old daughter. Thank you!  

Sheila V.
