For Parents


We understand that raising kids isn’t always easy. Just when you think you’ve got it all together, something changes. It doesn’t help that frantically searching “my five year old hit me” or “cell phone rules for teens” doesn’t usually lead to the most clear or affirming advice. We know that kids and parents alike are drowning in a sea of conflicting information. Now let’s be clear, we didn’t create Spark & Stitch because we think we have all the answers. You are the one who knows your family, your culture, your kid.

We created Spark & Stitch Institute™ because we believe that raising connected and courageous kids in the digital age is more urgent now than ever before. We also believe that none of us can do it alone and that the latest research can be a helpful guide. You deserve accessible, warm, and practical parenting help. We are here for you to:
