Meet Linda and Ty Hatfield
The Hatfield’s Story
Linda and Ty have been married since 1987 and have three daughters (Kristen 30, Kari 29, and Kelly 27). When their girls were early elementary school age, they happened upon a parenting course called Redirecting Children’s Behavior. Although Linda had a degree in Child Development and worked as a teacher and Ty had a career in Law Enforcement, they immediately realized they had a lot more to learn about parenting than they thought.
They enjoyed the class so much that they immediately enrolled in the training program to become Certified Parent Educators. As they began to teach the program they experienced more and more shifts in how they handled situations concerning their children. In addition, they learned a great deal from parents who attended their classes as well as professionals that they trained to become instructors. They quickly became highly sought after speakers and have addressed many PTA groups, Private Schools, Child Development Centers, YMCAs, local and national conferences. Over the years, Linda and Ty continued to search for the best in parenting practices to serve their children and their clients and went on to create their own unique program called Parenting From The Heart.
Now, as they enjoy their children as young adults and teenagers, they have a profound sense of gratitude for all they have learned. In the past, when people heard that Linda and Ty had three teenage daughters they would often say, “Oh you poor things!” Linda and Ty’s surprising response is that they have a wonderful relationship with their daughters and they didn’t experience any of the “typical teen” conflict that people are talking about. Linda and Ty like to say that they are not a perfect family but a highly connected family.
Today they channel this experience into their Parenting From The Heart programs to create a safe, fun and nonjudgmental atmosphere for parents to shift to higher levels of parenting. With a unique husband/wife and mom/dad perspective they come from their hearts to teach solutions that are empowering and respectful to both parents and children. After all, their mission is to help parents create the family of their dreams.
