Meet Roberta

Roberta Mcdonald Parent SuccessRoberta Macdonald was born Roberta Hatt of Canadian Swiss and Oklahoma parentage.  Her early experiences with her siblings, living in a small town in the Texas panhandle, play an important role in her book. Her early practical life with chores, babysitting, and sharing a paper route with her twin brother, was important in that it taught her interdependence at an early age.   She combines her early values and upbringing with her many experiences in the very real world of being a parent and step-parent of four, years of teaching in public schools, and counseling teenagers and families.  Macdonald is able to blend a practical, positive, common sense approach with humor and knowledge gleaned from many years of studying, degrees and hands on experiences. From this blending Macdonald creates the unique wisdoms of Parent Success: 99 Ways to Make it Happen.

Her book, Parent Success: 99 Ways to Make It Happen, was written and used in many parent classes in the greater Seattle area for over 30 years. Roberta wrote the Parent Success book so that parents who are burdened with many parenting challenges and unexpected stressors will have a simple daily guide.

To find a “tip”, Roberta put the book in alphabetical order  with  99 practical, positive and encouraging tools on each page.  These tools remind parents of the important values and tenets parents may forget in the challenging world we live in. This is an easy and valuable book for parents of all age children.

Roberta Macdonald is a retired Certified Mental Health Counselor and a retired educator with over 40 years of experience teaching children, teens and parents.  She currently facilitates a class, Calming Down: a Daily Self-Management Course at Bellevue College, North Campus.

After reading and studying the Course in Miracles many times, Roberta wrote Parent Success in 1994 and has continued to be a student of the Course.  The main tenets of the Course: love, forgiveness and finding the True Self in each person, inspired Roberta to write this parenting book. She, also, uses these tenets in her Calming Down class.

Her book, Parent Success: 99 Ways to Make It Happen, was written in 1994 and has been used in many parenting classes in the greater Seattle area for over 30 years. Roberta wrote the Parent Success book for parents who are burdened with many parenting challenges and unexpected stressors.
