Parenting Speaker, Writer and Coach for Positive Parenting Project
Anita Cleare is a parenting speaker, writer and coach who supports working parents to balance successful careers with being a parent. An accredited Triple P® parenting facilitator, Anita worked in a local authority for nine years, setting up and managing family support services including Sure Start children’s centres, parent helplines, teenage pregnancy prevention projects and intensive family support services. Anita has a talent for helping parents step back and reflect on parent-child dynamics and implement small changes that make a huge difference. She is adamant that there is no such thing as a perfect parent and says her ambition with her own children is simply not to make the same mistakes too often. With an academic background in developmental psychology, Anita helps parents cut through the fads and fashions of parenting advice and focus on how modern parents can apply simple evidence-based approaches in ways that work for their specific family set-up.
