They Say

Mikki L.

"Melissa uses her HR experience to make sense of this crazy parenting journey we are on. As an “HR mom” myself, I can attest that the skills she encourages us to help our kids master are the same skills we look for as we hire the next generation of employees."

Amy L.

"From Day 1, HR Mom has offered solid, easy-to-implement advice for parents. It has turned the way we think about parenting on its head. She is the opposite of a helicopter mom and reminds us that our job as a parent is to ‘work ourselves out a job.’ Genius! Independence Challenges are the key to independent children."
