All these questions and more are answered in this fun and energetic conversation with Nellie and Robbin! Listen in and join us!

About the Guest:

 My name is Robbin McManne and I, like so many, struggled for years because I wasn’t the parent I wanted to be. I struggled to find a connection with my two boys. I had so much love for them, but I found I was often overwhelmed with their needs and losing my temper on a regular basis (sometimes even more than them!). The more frustrated I got, the unhappier I felt. I knew what I was doing wasn't working and that there must be a better way. 

Through searching for answers, found the Conscious Parenting community. I discovered how I could connect with my kids and through this connection, I found myself, I found joy, and I found my life’s work...but most importantly, I found a connection with the people I love the most on this earth, my two boys!

I am a certified Parenting Coach through the Jai Institute for Parenting. I have worked with a wide variety of parents from Canada, The United States, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.   I feel honored to have found this way of parenting and to be able to help families who are experiencing some of the same struggles I have faced. Because of this work, I am a more confident, happy, and connected parent.

​I live on the beautiful West Coast. Together with my husband Cory, we are raising two fun, energetic and athletic boys. When I'm not working, I enjoy being active, connecting with friends & family, and being a cheerleader on the sidelines of my boys' sports. 


About the Host:

Nellie Harden is a wife of 20+ years, mom to 4 teen/tween daughters, dreamer, adventurer, servant, multipreneur, forever student, and a devoted teacher, but her career passion is her work as a Family Life & Leadership Coaching, especially for parents of young women ages 9-18yo. 

Coming from a career background in marine mammal sciences, behavioral work, and a host of big life experiences, both great and some not-so-great, she decided that designing a life of purpose and freedom was how she and her husband, along with their 4 daughters, wanted to live. 

Her work and passions exist in the realms of parenting and teen mentorship because she believes that a family filled with creativity, fun, laughter, challenge, adventure, problem-solving, hugs, good food, and learning can not only change a person’s life but is the best chance at positively changing the world. 

She helps parents to stop wasting time and energy in power struggles so they can focus on building their daughter’s worth, esteem, and confidence as young women before they ever leave home.

With a lifelong passion and curiosity in thought, choice, behavior, and growth she has found incredible joy in helping families shift perspective, find answers, and a path forward.


(Nellie has been coaching families for over 10 years and has degrees in Biology, Animal Behavior, and Psychology. )
