Parenting 2.0

Who is Parenting 2.0?

Parenting 2.0 is an international consciousness movement that promotes a more proactive educational process for Life Skills.

What are Life Skills?

Parenting 2.0 defines Life Skills as:

Skills every human being learns in some measure to thrive and commune with others.

What are Life Skills Educators?

Anyone that teaches others non-academic Life Skills – consciously or unconsciously. Every adult on the planet is in some manner teaching Life Skills and is, therefore, a Life Skills Educator. Parenting 2.0 attracts and supports those who are conscious, intentional, and collaborative in their roles.

What is the Life Skills Report Card?

The Life Skills Report Card is a communication tool similar in concept to academic report cards. Categories include:

  • Personal Care
  • Organizational
  • Respect for Self and Others
  • Communication
  • Social

The Parenting 2.0 Mission

Parenting 2.0 supports parents, professionals, and other primary caregivers in their role as Life Skills Educators. Our goal is that one day children’s LSA (Life Skills Average) will be as appreciated as their GPA (Grade Point Average).

LinkedIn’s Top Ranked Parenting Group

Life Skills Educators began rallying around the Parenting 2.0 mission on LinkedIn in 2009. Today,  Parenting 2.0 is LinkedIn’s top ranked parenting group, unifying 8,000 Life Skills Educators in more than 100 countries.

P20 Talks The World’s Only Professional Conference for Life Skills Educators

In 2012, Parenting 2.0 began hosting the world’s only professional conferences for Life Skills Educators – P20 Talks.  The current format alternates international conferences with regional events. P20 Talks 2012 was held in San Diego, California and P20 Talks 2014 in Dublin, Ireland. P20 Talks 2016 will be in Goa, India. Global Presence Ambassadors organize regional events in the alternating years and nurture the growth of Global Presence Communities.
