The Motherhood Village Podcast

May 24, 2023

The Motherhood Village podcast is powered by Eaton Financial Group: where their motto is to live well, work hard and give generously. Under the leadership of Doug Eaton - Eaton provides counsel to its family of clients on complex financial issues, delivering a high level of proactive care and customized financial plans that meet each client’s individual needs. The firm specializes in assisting women who handle household financial planning, by acting in a fiduciary capacity – meaning your best interests are their first priority.  

This week's episode features The Parenting Mentor, Sue Groner. As an experienced mother of 2 young adults, Sue knows how stressful and overwhelming parenting can be at times. She founded The Parenting Mentor to provide an ally for parents in their quest to raise confident and resilient children.  Sue is the author of Parenting with Sanity and Joy. 101 Simple Strategies, is the host of The Parenting Mentor Sessions Podcast, and is a certified Positive Discipline parent educator. Sue is also the creator of the CLEARR™ method of parenting, developed through years of trial (and her fair share of errors!) with her own family. CLEARR™ adheres to the belief that parenting strategies should be grounded in six important pillars: Communication, Love, Empathy, Awareness, Rules, and Respect. This has become the cornerstone of her practice as The Parenting Mentor.

A graduate of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a former advertising executive, Sue is a frequent guest expert on ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox to name a few, and provides advice for many national publications and websites such as The Wall Street Journal, Parents, Real Simple,, HuffPost, and Katie Couric Media. Sue resides in New York City and Bedford, NY with her husband, and when she’s lucky, with her children. She is available for speaking engagements as well as for private and group mentorship sessions(in-person or virtual) nationwide for individuals and corporations.
