Executive Director's Welcome,

Hello Friends,


After teaching middle school for several years, I realized there was a huge gap between what teachers expected parents to do to support classroom instruction, and what parents were emotionally equipped to do to support their children.  Being a parent is the hardest job on earth, yet it has the least instructions and most criticism.  Based on what I have researched and experienced in my interactions with other parents, I've concluded that parent's need access to more parenting strategies and tools to equip them to be the best parents possible.

With that in mind, I founded Parental Empowerment Institute.  Parents of all backgrounds are welcome here, as we place emphasis on creating a warm, non-judgmental atmosphere.   Join us in our effort to make the world a better place, one parent at a time.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is rooted in the theory of Emotional Intelligence (EI).  We believe EI is as important as both financial stability and intellectual ability in raising a happy, healthy child.   The strategies we use are designed to uphold this principle and place emphasis on obtaining and maintaining emotional health.

Our Mission & Vision

The mission of PEI is to provide parental support services and emotional intelligence training for parents in Metro Atlanta.  


Our vision is to expand our mission to include parents in our local, national, and global communities.
