In this conversation with Vicki Hoefle, founder of Parenting On Track™ & Author of Duct Tape Parenting we speak with Meghan Leahy. We found Meghan when she blogged about her Do Nothing Say Nothing week and clearly understood the point of the Duct Tape. Reading her posts we discovered she is also hilarious and down to earth, so we thought it would be a gas to chat with her. We were thrilled when she accepted our invitation to share her experience on a podcast.

Meghan Leahy, parent coach and founder of has always had a passion for working with children, whether working as an English teacher for gifted boys or becoming a school counselor.  The work has changed, but her focus has always stayed the same: helping children grow, learn, and change in a positive manner.  With each career choice, she learned more about children, more about parenting, and more about her own passions. Her mission is to help you bring lightness, laughter, and love into your home, to help joyfulness and tranquility find a place at the table, to teach you to forgive yourself when you are human and move forward and to feel in control and optimistic about the future, and to have fun with your family. With common sense, humor, and time-tested strategies, Meghan helps parents build positive connections with their children. These positive connections help the parent understand childhood development, lessen unwanted behaviors, as well as make it fun to parent again! You can find Meghan at, or on twitter @mlparentcoach, she can work in-person, via Skype, or over the phone.
