Raise your kids through positive parenting, understanding, and leadership...and be the ultimate influencer in their lives.

How do you raise a champion? After her son Adam Rippon, medaled in the 2018 Olympic Games, single mom Kelly Rippon found herself being asked this question all the time. Kelly had six children—what did she do to inspire them to their achievements and how did she raise confident, self-driven, emotionally intelligent children? Kelly realized that her unique parenting ideas shared the same leadership influence model she presented to audiences across the country as a motivational and professional development speaker.

Her philosophy is simple: a parent has the greatest opportunity to be the most significant influence in a child's life. Kelly shares ten key types of influence—from Optimism to Accountability—that will inspire your kids and build your own sense of purpose and self-worth. Illustrating her influencer philosophy with relatable anecdotes from her own life and raising gifted children, Kelly invites you into your own journey of self-discovery in one of the best books on parenting and child development. No matter the challenges, you can improve your life and empower your children when you Parent Up!

Foreword by Olympic medalist Adam Rippon.

"In this inspiring book, Rippon shares stories of struggles, successes, and lessons learned. What sets this apart from other parenting books are Rippon's core ideals in action.

"Parents really are their kid's first influencers, and this book really built up my confidence to be the best kind of influencer (not a controller) of my kids." — Sarah Nicole Landry, Instagram influencer @thebirdspapaya
