YOLO Parents seeks to help parents and educators be in tune with themselves and their children so that they can
connect in ways that form lifelong healthy relationships.
YOLO Parents was founded by Shannon Meyer, M.Ed., a credentialed teacher with experience working in impacted
communities in the inner city. Despite challenging circumstances, her students achieved with remarkable and
measurable success both academically and personally. Shannon then transitioned to
full-time coaching as well as becoming an active member of the professional development leadership team.
After having two of her own "spirited children" and observing the classroom management challenges that teachers
often face, she began to specialize in supporting teachers and parents with behavior management.
With training in Cognitive Coaching, Common Core Education, Parenting Through Connection, and Positive Discipline,
Shannon has developed courses and professional development packages to support parents and educators. Shannon is passionate
about helping them to see the whole child and learn how a deeper understanding of our kids helps everyone succeed and
be healthier and happier. Because, you know...YOLO!
