Hear what Shannon has to say on previously recorded live interviews on News radio 740 KTRH in Houston and read articles in which she is quoted.

Parenting at its best is hard work. As a parent of two teenagers, I get it. I get "mom guilt". I used to jest that my goal was for my kids not to need therapy because of me. Truth be told, we have all been in therapy, and now I do it for a living!

I have been certified in Practical Parent Education since 2007 and founded Thornton Training Group (a parent education consulting business) in 2009. I also have extensive training and experience, and a professional certification with executive function disorders and how they can wreak havoc on your home in your relationships with your children, the ill-effects on your marriage, and the strain among siblings.

If any of these resonate with you, call or email me. We will sit back and figure it out together.
