Kirsten Nottleson is mother to 2 sons who are 16 and 22 years old. She has worked extensively with parents, preschool staff, teen parents, and families experiencing substance abuse issues as a parent educator/ consultant in Austin, Texas for the past 28 years.
Kirsten LOVES leading all sorts of support groups and classes, especially ones that involve play, pillow fights, and wrestling.
She has been using the Hand in Hand Parenting Approach in her own family for over 20 years, and is eternally grateful to have had these support tools during the teen years as her boys grow into young men.
All of her work is based on the principles of the Hand in Hand Approach, which she believes to be nothing short of Peace Movement in Action. You can read about the Hand in Hand Parenting Approach in Listen, Five Simple Tools to Meet Your Everyday Challenges, by Patty Wipfler and Tosha Schore.
