This was an absolutely fascinating discussion about the observations and experiences of Joanne and her family from around the world!  How does your parenting compare to the norms in Germany, Australia, and South Africa?  What pressures do we have on ourselves that other cultures do not even recognize and visa versa?  There are so many ways to parent.  In this podcast, you will be opened up to other cultures and have an adventurous exploration of parenthood and family life

About the Guest: 

Joanne Holbrook is a mother of two children and spouse to a United States Army Officer, who has lived and raised her family in South Africa, England, Germany, Australia, and across the United States. Born in South Africa and living half her life under the controlling Apartheid Government, she began to yearn for a better understanding of cultures outside her world. This experience, combined with the world travels that come with a military lifestyle, and her teaching in performing art schools for the past 25 years has allowed Joanne to observe culture and parenting from multiple international perspectives and with a broader world view. She is an author, professional keynote speaker, parenting advocate, and entrepreneur, who through her friendships, book, and speaking events, shares parenting stories to help build positive, values-based families around the world.

About the Host: 

Nellie Harden is a wife of 20+ years, mom to 4 teen/tween daughters, dreamer, adventurer, servant, multipreneur, forever student, and a devoted teacher, but her ride-or-die passion is her work as a Family Life Coach & Mentor.  

Coming from a career background in marine mammal sciences, behavioral work, and a host of big life experiences, both great and not some not so great, she decided that designing a life of purpose and freedom was how she and her husband, along with their 4 daughters, wanted to live.  

Her work and passions exist in the realms of family and parent mentorship because she believes that a family filled with creativity, fun, laughter, challenge, adventure, problem-solving, hugs, good food, and learning can not only change a person’s life but is the best chance at positively changing the world. 

She helps families build Self-Led Discipline™ & Leadership Into their homes, set their children up for a wildly successful life on their terms, and elevates the family experience with big joy, palpable peace, and everyday growth!

With a lifelong passion and curiosity in thought, choice, behavior, and growth she has found incredible joy in helping families shift perspective, find answers, and a path forward.


(Nellie has been coaching families for over 10 years and has degrees in Biology, Animal Behavior, and Psychology. )
