RAISE AND RESIST!
We are a movement that empowers parents to redefine resistance for themselves and their children.
We’re Hannah & Kelty- twin mothers on a mission for sanity and social change.
As educators, podcasters, and activists, you’ll often find us fiercely typing behind a stack of books or arm in arm on a nature walk, scheming and dreaming ways to dismantle and reimagine conventional parenting practices.
The rest of the time we’re homebound on our family farm, frazzled and waist-deep in messes 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 be real- parenting can be crazy-hard... and most of the time, none of us knows what the hell we’re doing.
What we know for certain is that we’re better together -- we shouldn’t know it all or go it alone. The gift we’re given as parents is to lean in, laugh and love our kids — and we now see that we’re not just raising the next generation. We’re also raising ourselves. Let’s show up and grow up!

OUR WORK IS GROUNDED IN THE R.E.S.I.S.T. 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 tribe 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 as we chat with artists, activists, musicians, poets, authors, nutritionists, designers and more!
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 to align our ideals with our daily parenting practices. The two of us roll through an Empowerment each week, building skills around the only thing we should control — our own thoughts and behavior. Let’s show up and grow up!
