Anita Cleare is a parenting speaker, writer and coach who supports working parents to balance successful careers with being a parent.

With an academic background in developmental psychology, Anita has a talent for helping parents to step back and reflect on parent-child dynamics and implement small changes that make a huge difference. She founded the Positive Parenting Project in 2012 with the aim of helping parents cut through the fads and fashions of parenting advice and focus on evidence-based approaches that work.

Anita’s award-nominated parenting blog ‘Thinking Parenting’ has been listed in the Sunday Times Magazine as a must-read for parents. Her book ‘The Work/Parent Switch’ outlines how working parents can use the bits of time left over when work is done to parent smartly and be the parent their child needs.

Her second book “How to get your teenager out of their bedroom’ will be published in September 2024.

An accredited Triple P® parenting facilitator, Anita has been working with parents for 20 years.
