Paige Lucas-StannardPaige is a parent educator and writer specializing in gentle parenting, consensual living, and Nonviolent Communication (NVC).

 She believes that parenting is one of the best vehicles for social change and that motherhood should be empowering for women not a reason to be relegated to the sidelines of society (and certainly not divided in “mommy wars”).

She has been writing for 8 years about her decade-long struggle with infertility, parenting, and women’s issues at BabyDustDiaries.

She is the founder of, which promotes a positive, respect-based parenting model and co-founder of, a resource for mothers to learn their Federal and State breastfeeding laws and rights.

Her presentations include:

  • Transformative Parenting: Finding Your Parenting Path – Becoming a parent is a huge opportunity for personal growth. The responsibility that children bring focuses a spotlight on our own values and habits in new ways.  This workshop will help parents delve into their own parenting assumptions, road blocks, and fears and guide them in finding their authentic parenting path. For a preview, check out Paige’s article entitled,
  • NVC for Parents: Solving Conflict with Compassion – Paige takes the tenants of Nonviolent Communication (NVC) and applies it to the parent/child relationship. Parents will learn a new “language” of compassion through skills in empathetic listening, observing without judgement, and requesting without demanding. This shift of communication can vastly improve your relationship with your child and create a peaceful home.
  • NVC for Kids – This interactive workshop is for children ages 5-10 and their parents (younger children welcome). Participants will learn Nonviolent Communication skills through fun stories, music, and activities featuring loveable animal characters. Based on Giraffe Tales by Kathleen Macferran 

All topics can be adapted to be presentations, keynote speeches, or workshops and can be tailored to the audience.

If you don’t see a topic that quite meets your needs but think we can cover it, just let us know. We are also willing to create a signature talk or workshop for groups.
