Helping Your Child Find Their “Star Power”

What is “star power” and how can we help our child find and celebrate theirs? Today’s guest is Toni Ramey, Executive Director of Girls On The Run Treasure Valley. This unique program uses the modality of running to help girls connect with themselves and with others.  GOTR goes well beyond the physical and mental  benefits of physical activity and helps girls cultivate self-awareness, select healthy relationships and identify, celebrate and use the unique gifts they each bring to the world.

I consider it my life’s work to build community and connection. I am a warrior mom of two teenage girls, a passionate educator and musician. I also have first hand experience parenting a teen through very difficult times. I have embarked on a journey to combine my experiences as an educator, artist and as a parent to help develop programs to support and educate parents, especially those struggling in their relationship with “tweens,” teens and young adults. I am a graduate of The Parent Coaching Institute. I am currently the co-chair of the St. Luke’s Pediatric Family Advisory Council representing families with children hospitalized due to a mental health crisis. I am on the board of the Idaho Suicide Prevention Coalition. I am an Associate Member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association and I am committed to their Principles of Good Practice.
