Anita Cleare

Anita Cleare is a parenting speaker, writer and coach who supports working parents to balance successful careers with being a parent.

With an academic background in developmental psychology, Anita founded the Positive Parenting Project in 2012 to help parents cut through the fads and fashions of parenting advice and focus on evidence-based approaches that work.

Anita’s award-nominated parenting blog ‘Thinking Parenting’ has been listed in the Sunday Times Magazine as a must-read for parents. Her book The Work/Parent Switch (UK) / The Working Parent’s Survival Guide (USA) outlines how working parents can use the bits of time left over when work is done to parent smartly and be the parent their child needs. (International editions also available in German, Chinese, Romanian and Polish).

An accredited Triple P® parenting facilitator, Anita has been working with parents for 18 years. Before founding the Positive Parenting Project, she worked for Sure Start children’s centres, parent helplines, teenage pregnancy prevention projects and intensive family support services.
