My Mission

Raising our children as our partners in our home and on our planet, bringing sufficiency and fulfillment for everyone, with no one left out.


Our children, in the beginning, want nothing more than for us, their parent(s), to be happy and successful.

Seeing how and why our young children learn to do what they do gives us immediately effective new choices, but not just for our children. By implication, since we once were young children, this includes why we now respond the way we do, potentially missing out on unconsidered but very workable new choices. Understanding our behavior from this new and unique model results in eliminating parental guilt, confusion, a sense of powerlessness and adds daily satisfaction in our parenting life.

About Marty Dutcher —>

This is not about being a better parent or having better-behaved children. It is about freedom to be ourselves, about communication and trust, and about early human learning and then practicing extraordinary social skills as partners. It is never too late. It is never too soon.

How soon would you want to see more meaningful communication, feel more appreciation, have more cooperation, or increase playfulness?

Our world is in our hands, as are our children’s - we can impact both much earlier and much more than we think.

Fortunately, and not accidentally, the ideal practice field for global fulfillment and sufficiency is our own family. We parents are leaders, like it or not, and our very young children are born to follow and provide instant feedback. This relationship can and will likely will begin to break down or grow, depending on how we see, and thus relate to, each other under all circumstances.

What to do is an easily solved problem. Those resources are available. But how to do it? That makes all the difference. That takes some time, some new thinking, some new action. You can start now.

Special Topics Live

Imagination and play, all about tantrums and other upsets, motor/mobility skill excellence, school and schooling issues and concerns, separations and transitions, and others by request.

Graduate Sessions

Small group discussions and demonstrations to amplify and accelerate results you want. Mini-classes on specific activities - from imagination, art, reading, math in ways that assure natural and dynamic learning practice (and consistent with how our human brain works!).
