United We Parent Conference | Overview
The United We Parent Conference is a unique experience designed to be an invaluable resource for birth parents, adoptive parents, step-parents and every other type of parent. It is so important that all people come together for the benefit of the kids of our society. We all have so much to offer and, despite all differences, we have a common denominator…KIDS!

This is a boutique event and as such registration is limited. 

United We Parent guests include parents, grandparents, prospective parents and entrepreneurs and brands looking to learn and engage in conversation. Our focus is on providing quality content, rich discussion and practical tips.

The Focus
United We Parent is focused on providing the resources to, all parents regardless of gender, sexuality,  marital status, how or when you became a parent, ethnicity, age, income, or anything else.  We are focused on creating an interactive environment and to collaborate in harmony with other parents to create a happier and healthier parenting community.

United We Parent’s philosophy is based on the premise that the best resource that parents have to become better parents is other parents. At the same time we recognize that some parenting experiences are not universal. It is for this reason that we  have chosen to keep attendance is limited in numbers. This will also for us to provide inclusive discussions for all parents in addition to targeted discussions for fathers, mothers and more.

2. Rally parents to collaborate with each other in the best interest of the KIDS!
