Help for Parents

Having a child is a huge responsibility.    

How do you keep her happy, while ensuring she's not spoiled?  What about discipline? When do I need to work on reading? What do I say when he bites?  How do I give her what she needs and help her grow strong? 

“How do I build self-confidence in my child?” 

“I need help finding the balance between setting firm limits and encouraging independence.” 

“My child is hurting others and I don't know how to make him care!”

“How do I get my child to take responsibility and solve his own problems?” 

Why would you? There's no entrance exam for parenting and an overwhelming amount of advice to sort through. 

Welcome to The Prepared Environment


I'm Leanne Gray, and I'm on a mission to raise a generation of confident, compassionate, responsible children.  

I find parents like you are overwhelmed with advice, research, and checklists, but are still unsure how to take the ideas of Montessori, Positive Discipline, respect, independence, or minimalism and put them into practical daily use. 

Sound like you? You're in the right place.

I've gathered what you need, what to say, and what to do

to raise confident, capable children, and it's all right here.

Here's how it works. 3-4 step plan.
