RAISE & RESIST!
We are a movement that empowers parents to grow up alongside their kids for a happier home and a brighter future.
We’re Hannah & Kelty- twin mothers on a mission for sanity and social change.
As educators, podcasters, and feminists, you’ll often find us fiercely typing behind a stack of books or arm in arm on a nature walk, schemin’ and dreamin’ ways to dismantle and reimagine conventional parenting practices.
The rest of the time we’re on our family farm, waist-deep in utter chaos as we co-juggle a raucous brood of four tiny humans under the age of six! Inspiring, infuriating kids who resist us ALL.THE.TIME.
Let’s get real — parenting can be crazy-hard and none of us knows what the hell we’re doing. What we know for certain is that nurturing our kids’ inner wisdom and authority — so often expressed via their resistance— is a brave and beautiful way to raise a generation of activists, empaths, innovators and game-changers.
Resisting the fear, conformity and control inherent in mainstream parenting frees us to create profound and positive change in ourselves, our families and the world. Let’s show up and grow up! LEARN MORE ➦
OUR WORK IS GROUNDED IN THE RESIST APPROACH
A progressive parenting practice that replaces conventional discipline with 6 alternative powers designed to nurture the innate freedoms and authentic spirits of the kids in our lives.

We’re better together! Our conversations seek to unite a band of conscious humans who bravely share their struggles, creatively pursue their dreams and passionately elevate the dialogue around what they do and why. Tune in every other Monday as we chat with artists, activists, musicians, poets, authors, nutritionists, and designers about LIFE… especially the challenges that have enabled us all to grow. Some are parents, some are child-free, others are on the fence. All show up to share their wisdom and tools for living with greater awareness and alignment as human beings.
The hard stuff is the good stuff! The children in our lives don’t bring out the worst in us; they challenge us to become our best. These episodes are a twin-talkin’ examination of ways we can better align our ideals with our daily parenting practices via the Resist Approach. Join us to stay sane as we raise the next generation of ass-kicking, compassionate innovators that our world so dearly needs. We roll through a common parenting challenge or ideal, raising awareness and building skills around the only thing we should control — our own thoughts, beliefs and behavior.
