Scott Noelle is a life coach and the author of The Daily Groove: How to Enjoy Parenting… Unconditionally! Since 2006, he has been sharing practical parenting wisdom through the free Daily Groove mailing list, online at dailygroove.com. Scott believes that children are innately good and that a natural, partnership style of parenting is the best way to foster their goodness. He teaches parents how to avoid coercive parenting methods by focusing on four positive pathways to power—Partnership, Authenticity, Trust, and Heart— an approach he calls PATH Parenting. Scott is also an advocate of self-directed education through natural, freedom-based, pleasure-driven learning. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his partner Beth Noelle and their two teenage children.
