   Local Parenting Expert Releases First Book: 'Your Family
   Compass' Provides Step by Step Advice for Families

   STILLWATER, Minn., Sept. 18, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) --
   Stillwater-based parenting consultant Jenny Hanlon is releasing her
   first book, "Your Family Compass: A Parenting Guide for the
   Journey" (ISBN: 978-1-59298-489-3), a terrific resource for people
   raising children from birth through the early teens. Parenting is hard
   work and it is easy for families to get off track. To help them find a
   healthier course, Hanlon's book provides a guide for adults to
   empower the children in their lives, offering workbook pages and case
   studies for direction.

   Hanlon has been working with families for more than 15 years, has her
   B.S. in Child Psychology, M.Ed. in Family Education, and is licensed in
   Early Childhood and Parent Education. She runs Jenny Hanlon
   Consulting, formerly Parent & Teacher Support Services, where she
   offers support and guidance for professionals who work with children,
   and for parents with children in the early teens and younger. Hanlon decided to finally write her own book after numerous
   parents encouraged her to publish a parenting guide.

   A sought after teacher and speaker, Hanlon has also been tapped to provide parenting advice on Twin Cities Live and for the
   Star Tribune. She regularly offers parenting workshops on topics such as "Praise Versus Encouragement: The Truth About
   Motivation," and "More, More, More!" about the impact of overindulgence.

   "Jenny does an excellent job of bringing together complex ideas about parenting and child rearing while at the same time
   grounding it," said Dr. David Bredehoft, Chair of the Dept. of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Concordia University. "One
   message that comes through loud and clear throughout 'Your Family Compass' is: you are in charge of writing your family's
   story."

   Hanlon was a founding teacher of Dodge Nature preschool, currently teaches parent-child classes and is the Summer
   Program Director of The Children's Farm School in West Lakeland, and volunteers extensively with nonprofit service
   organization, FamilyMeans. Hanlon lives in Stillwater with her husband and two school-age children who give her plenty of
   opportunity to test out her own compass.

   "Your Family Compass" will be released October 10, 2012 and kick off with a public launch party Oct. 13-14, 2012, held at
   Carpenter Nature Center as part of their annual Apple Fest.
